Bengt Ernryd Quartet 1964/1965

LP (Item 428823) Dragon (Sweden), 1964/1965 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock


Rare Swedish modern from the mid 60s – recordings made by the Bengt Ernryd Quartet in 1964 and 1965, but only issued a few years later! The group here features Ernryd on trumpet, Jan Wallgren on piano and percussion, Gosta Walivaara on bass, and Jan Carlsson on drums – all working on long tracks that stretch out spaciously and organically, but not in a way that's too free or outside. There's a real fascination with sound formation here – and the work flows nicely with a surprising amount of soul – almost at a level that reminds us of the best "new thing" work from the US during the same stretch, particularly that of Tony Williams or Bill Dixon. Titles include "Meditation & Motion", "At The End Of The Day", and "Parallel Movements".  © 1996-2016, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Dragon (Sweden), 1960/1985. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Fantastic (and now out-of-print) double album set of a stunning live performance by Trane and Miles, recorded in Sweden in 1960. The tracks are all long, with backing by the rhythm section of Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Jimmy Cobb. Highlights include "Green Dolphin Street", "Fr ... LP, Vinyl record album

Colpix, Early 60s. Very Good
Maybe Zoot was trying to compete with Stan Getz here, we don't know, but the groove's actually pretty great, and it's nice to hear a soloist as strong as Zoot working his way through some bossa covers. Of course this isn't authentic, but it's a nice groovy album nonetheless, and the arrangements ... LP, Vinyl record album

RCA, 1975. Sealed Gatefold
A great later sleeper from Brian Auger – a record that's much deeper and more soulful than some of his earlier work – and done in a soaring style that's really great! Alex Lighterwood sings as much as Auger plays the keys here, but that's ok with us – because he fuses his voice ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jaws In Orbit
Prestige, 1959. Very Good-
Eddie Lockjaw Davis swings way out here – working in that cool cooking mode from the 50s, with organist Shirley Scott a very important partner on the date! The group's got a larger sound than usual – thanks to the addition of trombonist Steve Pullman – a player we don't know much ... LP, Vinyl record album

Satin Doll
Blue Note, 1974. Very Good+
Fabulous stuff – one of the legendary albums that funky flute player Bobbi Humphrey cut with producer Larry Mizell! The record's a prime example of the Mizell genius at work – as Larry's arranged these fantastic backdrops for Bobbi's flute – soaring keyboard lines, layers and ... LP, Vinyl record album

In Between
Blue Note, 1968. Near Mint-
One of the last records that Booker Ervin ever recorded, and one of the best! There's a depth of tone and conception here that goes far beyond even Ervin's already-great albums for Prestige – a mix of modernism and soulful expression that really points the way towards jazz expression in the ...

Shades Of Joy
Fontana, Late 60s. Very Good+
Shades of Joy were one of those cool little sixties bands that fell through the cracks – a San Francisco based, racially-mixed jazz group that had rock leanings, but did some neat groovy stuff. We like some of the instrumental cuts on here, but especially love "Icarus Revealed", a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic, 1972. Very Good- 2LP Gatefold
This session shouldn't work, but it does – and beautifully! By all means, an album that includes Diz, Art Blakey, Monk, and Sonny Stitt playing together should be a first-rate snoozer, with hackneyed performances of common-denominator material that they can all get their hooks around – ...

Ascension (Version 1)
Impulse, 1965. Near Mint-
This is the rare first take of Ascension, and it differs greatly from the second take, which is the more widely available one. It's designated by the fact that the recording doesn't say "Version II" on the runoff groove. One of the freest, most exploratory albums ever recorded by ... LP, Vinyl record album

Light My Fire
Impulse, Late 60s. Very Good- Gatefold
Excellent grooviness – and typical of the mad instrumental LPs that showed up on Impulse when they weren't cutting high-minded jazz! The record has a nice mix of easy funky jazz and pop psychedelia – performed by a range of groovy players conducted by Bob Thiele, and featuring Tom ... LP, Vinyl record album

Maiden Voyage
Cadet, 1968. Very Good+
One of the key records from the Cadet/Concept scene in late 60s Chicago – a tremendous collaboration between pianist Ramsey Lewis and arranger Charles Stepney – and the kind of record that took soul and jazz to a whole new level! Ramsey on his own is great enough at this point – ... LP, Vinyl record album
