LP, Vinyl record album

(€4.19 || £3.70 || ¥556) (approx.)

Sparkling fusion from Matrix – done in a style that mixes acoustic and electric elements nicely, in a way that's much more in keeping with older albums of the type than sets that were coming out at the time of this one! There's a groove here that's a bit like some of the west coast work from the early 70s – played by a larger ensemble that mixes together a fair bit of horns, but lets key players step out nicely on the longer tracks – never jamming too much, but bringing a searching edge to the tracks to push them past their roots. All titles composed and arranged by keyboardist John Harmon – and titles include "Blue Black", "Maestro", "Balthazar", "El Tigre", and "Pony". (Cover has light wear.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

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.

Tudo Bem!
Pablo, 1978. Very Good+
One of the best Joe Pass albums from the 70s – largely because he's working with such a great group of Brazilian players! Besides percussionist Paulinho Da Costa, the musicians also include drummer Claudio Slon, as well as Oscar Castro Neves, Don Grusin, and Octavio Bailly. Tracks are light ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pablo, 1979. Sealed
An obscure jazzy soundtrack by Oscar Peterson, and one of his nicest albums from the late 70s! The record moves past the usual Peterson trio format – and includes extra horn players like Benny Carter, Zoot Sims, and Clark Terry, as well as the vibes of Milt Jackson. All this makes for a ...

88 Basie Street
Pablo, 1983. Very Good+
Very fluid later work from Count Basie – a set that has that nice open-ended Pablo Records approach, but which still comes across with that brilliant Basie groove that first emerged most strongly in the 50s! Players are a mix of young and old, and the group includes Grover Mitchell and Booty ... LP, Vinyl record album
Embraced
Pablo, 1977. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A masterful meeting of two important piano modernists – Mary Lou Williams and Cecil Taylor – sounding incredibly wonderful here in each other's company! The set features a core rhythmic pulse from Mickey Roker on drums and Bob Cranshaw on bass – and Williams and Taylor really ... LP, Vinyl record album
This One's For Blanton
Pablo, 1972. Very Good
A great tribute to the late bassist Jimmy Blanton – served up by his old boss Duke Ellington, working here on piano alongside the bass of Ray Brown! This spare piano/bass session is a rarity in Duke's catalog – and it's a real later gem that captures the warmth and imagination of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
In Concert Vol 2
CTI, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold
A pretty darn sweet album from some of CTI's biggest players! Herbie, Stanley Turrentine, Eric Gale, Freddie Hubbard, and Ron Carter all join together in a super-nice live set – with an album-side version of Herbie's synth funky classic "Hornets", done in a hard-wailing style! ...

Feels So Good
Kudu, 1975. Very Good
An incredible batch of electric funk from Grover Washington Jr – easily one of his best albums ever! The record really picks up from the sweet CTI sound of the 70s – taking Bob James arrangements with a lot of space and electric keyboards, and letting Groover blow some wonderfully ...

Carnival
Arista Freedom, 1974. Very Good
An unusual record for Randy Weston – a freewheeling live set recorded at Montreux in 1974, with Billy Harper joining Weston's group on tenor and flute, playing long spiritual solos that work wonderfully next to Weston's spiralling piano lines! Harper's searching quality really opens up the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Having A Ball
Argo, 1963. Very Good
Although he's made many snoozy records in his time, the early Al Grey albums for Argo are pretty hard swingin', and have a lot of nice surprises. This one's got a very young Bobby Hutcherson on vibes, and the great Dave Burns on trumpet. Tracks are short, with a hard swingin' groove that's still ... LP, Vinyl record album
