Jazz A Confronto

LP (Item 41987) Horo (Italy), 1975 — Condition: Near Mint-

Arguably the best album that George Adams ever cut as a leader – a sparkling gem in the Jazz A Confronto series, and a soulful quartet session played with Don Pullen on piano, David Williams on bass, and Dannie Richmond on drums. The tracks are all long and slightly spiritual, with more than a few bits of emotion learned during the time that Adams spent with Mingus. Titles include "Reqiuem For A Slumlord", "Cry From The Mountain", "Song Of Adam", and "You Name It".  © 1996-2019, 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.

Five To Go
Horo (Italy), 1976. Near Mint-
A rare one from Pullen – a mid 70s Italian recording that's got two side-long solo piano pieces: "Five To Go" and "Four Move". The album has a warm introspective quality that's really great – Pullen meandering a bit, but in that way that always works for him, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Roy Ayers

Virgo Vibes
Atlantic, 1967. Very Good+
A far-reaching early gem from Roy Ayers – a set that's much more jazz-based than his later work, and a record that has him touching base with the Blue Note and Strata East sides of the jazz spectrum! The lineup here is incredibly hip – a mix of players that includes a young Charles ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eric Dolphy

Berlin Concerts
Inner City, 1961. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Wonderful work by Dolphy – as essential to his catalog as any of his albums on Prestige from the same time!

Charles Lloyd

Dream Weaver
Atlantic, 1966. Very Good+
A classic set from reedman Charles Lloyd – a set that really pushes forward all the experiments he'd begun in the Chico Hamilton group – and shows a bold move forward for rhythms in 60s jazz! The tracks are long, and spiral out wonderfully – but in ways that are different than ... LP, Vinyl record album
