Lee Konitz Plays With The Gerry Mulligan Quartet (10-inch)

LP (Item 410955) Pacific Jazz, 1953 — Condition: Very Good

A classic meeting – the icy alto of Lee Konitz, with the mellifluous sound of the Gerry Mulligan quartet that included Chet Baker, Larry Bunker, and Carson Smith. The material was recorded in 1953 at The Haig in LA – and tracks include "Broadway", "These Foolish Things", "Almost Like Being In Love", "Too Marvelous For Words", "Five Brothers","My Old Flame", and "I Can't Get Started".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light wear, some yellowing from age, and a vintage price sticker on back.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
