My Main Man

LP (Item 43294) Argo, 1964 — Condition: Very Good

A lost little cooker from Stitt and Green – recorded at a time when they were working together briefly, with backing by a Chicago organ trio that includes Bobby Buster on Hammond, Jo Diorio on guitar, and Dorel Anderson on drums. Tracks are short and fierce, but it's clear that Stitt can groove in a "blow the jukebox out" kind of way when he's in the right company – but still show enough of the impeccable care that he did with his straighter jazz albums on Roost and Verve. Titles include "Let's Play Chess", "Double Dip", "My Main Man", and "Broilin".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Promo pressing with cream labels & deep groove. Cover has a taped spine and center split bottom seam with a cutout hole.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Milt Buckner

Mighty High
Argo, 1959. Very Good
Sweet and slow-burning organ from the great Milt Buckner – a really simple session overall, but one with lots of magical touches! Milt plays with a tone that's much lighter than a lot of his contemporaries on the Hammond – not as many tricks as Jimmy Smith, and perhaps more integrated ... LP, Vinyl record album
Argo, 1960s. Very Good+
Features work by Ahmad Jamal, Benny Golson & Art Farmer Jazztet, Al Grey, Lorez Alexandria, Buddy Rich, James Moody, Roland Kirk, and others! LP, Vinyl record album
Argo (UK), 1973. Near Mint-
A really inventive reading of Duke Ellington's famous suite – done with a hip early 70s British jazz spin, in a performance that features Norma Winstone on the vocal tunes – plus other work in the group from Kenny Wheeler and Harry Beckett on trumpets, Henry Lowther on trumpet and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Argo, 1961. Very Good
A rare session as a leader from drummer Red Holt – cut at a time when he was making waves with the Ramsey Lewis Trio, and years before his work in Young Holt Unlimited! The record's got a really playful feel that points the way towards directions Holt would take later – a mix of soul ... LP, Vinyl record album
Argo/Baybridge (Japan), 1962. Near Mint-
An early album by vibist Mike Mainieri – who later went on to do a lot of trippier albums in the late 60s. This one's a very nice quartet side with a straight feel, and was recorded for Chess/Argo in the early 60s, at Rudy Van Gelder's studio in New Jersey. The record is a lively mix of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Doug Carn

Revelation
Black Jazz, 1973. Near Mint-
The Black Jazz recordings of Doug Carn are always a revelation – some of the most powerful, progressive work on the American underground of the early 70s – music that got Carn into way more record collections than you might expect! The sound here is a perfect summation of Doug's early ... LP, Vinyl record album

Miles Davis

Get Up With It
Columbia, 1974. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Miles Davis' last studio session before a few years of seclusion – and a really monumental effort, probably the baddest of the electric period! The album does a great job of capturing the energy of the frenzied live sets from that time, and matching it with Teo Macero's cut and paste editing ... LP, Vinyl record album

Woody Shaw

Imagination
Muse, 1988. Near Mint-
A late date for Woody Shaw, but a great one too – a bit more straightforward than some of his more righteous albums of the 70s, but still proof that Shaw is easily one of the greatest trumpeters of his generation! The album's got a laidback sort of feel, and features a fair bit of familiar ... LP, Vinyl record album
MGM, 1963. Near Mint-
A wonderful album from Lalo Schfrin! This one mixes together bossa piano and sweeping string arrangements – in a style that's incredibly dark-edged and driving, with a sound that's at once spooky and lovely – a dancing groove that makes the best tracks really sparkle! The album's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jackie McLean

Tippin' The Scales
Blue Note, 1962/1984. Near Mint-
A sweet little quartet from Jackie McLean – a later entry into his bop-level sets for Blue Note, recorded right before his "new thing" years! The album never got a proper release back in the 60s, and only first saw the light of day two decades later – but it's a real cooker ... LP, Vinyl record album
