Please Send Me Someone To Love

LP (Item 431010) Contemporary, 1969 — Condition: Near Mint-

A really bold little record from Phineas Newborn – one that certainly has some of the bluesy overtones that you might guess from the title, but which also has other numbers that really leap along the keys! There's a fluid beauty here that really has Newborn at the top of his game – still drenched in the sounds of his Memphis roots, but also picking up some of the looser, livelier styles of the time of this recording – helped, no doubt, by the work of Elvin Jones on drums and Ray Brown on bass. Titles include "Rough Ridin", "Brentwood Blues", "Come Sunday", "Little Niles", and "Stay On It".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(70s yellow label pressing.)

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.

Phineas Newborn

Fabulous Phineas
RCA, 1958. Very Good+
Phineas Newborn is certainly fabulous here – thanks in part to some great guitar work from his brother Calvin! The session's got a little extra "kick" than some of Phineas' other records from the time – a slightly rougher edge that comes from Calvin's raspy guitar work on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Phineas Newborn

Here Is Phineas
Atlantic, Late 50s. Very Good
Classic early work by Phineas Newborn – and a record cut right after his emergence from the great Memphis scene of the 1950s! Most of the album features trio material – cut with Kenny Clarke on drums and Oscar Pettiford on bass – but a few tracks also feature some very nice ... LP, Vinyl record album

Art Farmer

On The Road
Contemporary, 1976. Very Good+
One of Farmer's best sessions of the 70s – recorded in a mode that's a bit freer than usual, with a group that includes Hampton Hawes, Ray Brown, and either Steve Ellington or Shelly Manne on drums. Art Pepper sits in on 4 of the album's 6 tracks – and it's his tone and edgieness that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Howard Rumsey's Lighthouse All Stars

Howard Rumsey's Lighthouse All Stars Vol 2 (10 inch LP)
Contemporary, 1953. Very Good+
Great early work from Howard Rumsey's Lighthouse group – working here at a level that's almost more freewheeling than on some of their later Contemporary albums! The format's still very much in place here – a host of key All Stars who include Milt Bernhart on trombone, Russ Freeman on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Contemporary, 1954. Very Good-
Tremendous work from Howard Rumsey's early Lighthouse group – and a great example of why they were such a great act at the time! The "solo spotlight" in the title is extremely apt here – as each of the album's tracks features a standout performance by group members who emerge ... LP, Vinyl record album
Contemporary, 1960. Very Good+
Classic hardbop from the west coast – a set of live recordings done at the Black Hawk jazz club in San Francisco at the end of the 50s, featuring Shelly Manne at the head of a group that includes the great Joe Gordon on trumpet! Tracks are longer, livelier, and have a lot more solo room and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Barney Kessel

Some Like It Hot
Contemporary, 1959. Very Good
A pretty nice jazz tribute to the Billy Wilder film of the same name – and one that reprises a number of tunes from the film, especially popular songs of the 20s – but brings them back in a way that's still got plenty of hip 50s jazz touches! The record's nicely without the hoke that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mel Henke

Now Spin This!
Contemporary, 1956. Very Good
Mel's second album for Contemporary – and every bit as great as the first! The album features Mel on piano, working in quartet format with guitar, bass, and drums – playing lively and playful arrangements of familiar tunes, in a mode that was similar to the live performance style that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Contemporary, 1955. Good+
Given Barney's touch on the guitar, you can bet that a record like this hardly could claim "not to swing" – and the session's a tight groover done in a way that clearly marks Kessel as one of the best guitar talents of his generation! The recording quality of the album is wonderful ... LP, Vinyl record album

Teddy Edwards

Heart & Soul
Contemporary, 1962. Very Good+
One of our favorite albums by Teddy Edwards – and one with some organ in the group! This obscure quartet side has Gerry Wiggins playing a rare bit of Hammond – grooving the group with a lean and open-ended soul jazz approach that really has Edwards blowing at his best! The style sits ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy Smith

Any Number Can Win
Verve, 1963. Very Good+ Gatefold
Sessions like this are proof that Jimmy was one of the most fantastic organ players ever – as his work with large arrangements (supplied here by Claus Ogerman) always seems to groove better than his work with small combos. His sound is impeccable, and he soars ahead of the rest of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 1965. Very Good+
Donald Byrd's second foray into the "with voices" genre – done with the same arranging talents of Coleridge Perkinson, the lyrical modernist who made Donald's A New Perspective such a success! The group that plays with Byrd is excellent, and includes Freddie Roach, Herbie Hancock, ... LP, Vinyl record album
