Clark Terry's Big Bad Band Live At The Wichita Jazz Festival 1974

LP (Item 431475) Vanguard, 1975 — Condition: Near Mint-

A crowd-pleasing cooker from Clark Terry – a set recorded live before a very appreciative audience, and in a hipper 70s mode than you'd expect! The album's one of those great jazz efforts that was put together by Ed Bland – who seems to bring a nice sense of bounce, soul, and groove to the set – working with arrangements by Jimmy Heath, Phil Woods, Ernie Wilkins, and others who manage to keep Clark out of hoke territory, and into a very tightly swinging 70s big band groove. Other players include Jimmh Heath, Phil Woods, Richard Williams, Charles Davis, and Duke Jordan – and the tunes are lively and soulful throughout! Titles include "Randi", "Cold Tater Stomp", "Sheba", "Mumbles", "Una Mas", and "Nefertiti".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light wear.)

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.

Clark Terry

Mumbles
Mainstream, Mid 60s. Very Good+
A surprisingly great little record from Clark Terry – filled with warmth, humor, and some really great grooves! The core of the album is the track "Mumbles", one that's based around Terry kind of slurring a scat vocal to a jazzy 60s groove. The track was a minor hit at the time, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Vanguard, 1979. Near Mint-
Green plays alto sax and piano and is joined by Randy Brecker on trumpet & flugelhorn, Albert Dailey and Ronald Kubelik on piano, Eddie Gomez on bass and Freddie Waits on drums. All of the tracks are originals and they include "East & West", "April Green", "Command ... LP, Vinyl record album

Urbie Green

Fox
CTI, 1976. Near Mint- Gatefold
Smooth and silky jazz funk from trombonist Urbie Green – a record that's much more in a mainstream R&B fusion mode than his earlier work – yet also arranged by David Matthews in a soulful style that still keeps things pretty real on the best cuts! The group's a good one for the ... LP, Vinyl record album
ABC, 1956. Very Good-
Mellow and wonderful work from Billy Taylor – caught here in a setting that feels much more relaxed and unrestrained than some of his other 50s outings! The group's his classic trio with Percy Brice on drums and Earl May on bass – and Billy's incredibly inventive on the keys, working ... LP, Vinyl record album

Vic Dickenson All Stars

Yacht Club Swing

Phil Woods & Gene Quill

Phil & Quill (RCA Masters)
RCA, 1956. Near Mint- Gatefold
A wonderful twin-alto session from the mid 50s – and one of our favorites from the RCA jazz years! Gene Quill was always one of the crisper, tighter alto talents of the time, and he's ably paired here with a young Phil Woods – an equally crisp player at this point in his career, ...

Cannonball Adderley

Why Am I Treated So Bad?
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good+
If you ever needed a key example of the genius of Cannonball on Capitol Records, this tight little set may well be it! The record's got all the best elements of a Cannon classic firmly in place – production by David Axelrod, electric piano by Joe Zawinul, and some tremendously soulful work ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good+
A great lost chapter in the Cannonball/David Axelrod story! The record features Cannon's classic quintet performing some longer, more serious works with orchestral backing – and the sound is vaguely similar to some of Axelrod's "high concept" work for Capitol. The record features ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jamey Aebersold, 1975. Near Mint-
One of the hip albums of jazz instrumentals issued by Jamey Aebersold's "learn and play jazz" label from the 70s – featuring a tight set of original trio tracks with a spare groove that's really nice. The group's a trio, with Rufus Reid on bass and Dan Haerle on piano – and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Les Baxter

Tamboo!
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good-
A landmark album of exotica! Tamboo was cut with Les' orchestra and chorus – and it's a swirling mass of tribal drums, singing strings, and moody voices that would forever change the face of easy listening. Les' compositions are astounding – filled with all the sophsitication of a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, Mid 60s. Very Good-
One of Tony Bennett's most fantastic albums from the 60s, and a record that features some nice jazzy arrangements that push past the usual heavy studio ones. The album includes a great reading of "Samba Do Aviao" with backing by Carlos Lyra, Helcio Milito, and Al Cohn – plus "F ... LP, Vinyl record album
