James Moody (1959)

LP (Item 43615) Argo, 1959 — Condition: Very Good+
Also available
James Moody — James Moody ... CD 11.99
Great work from Moody's "second phase" – the post-Overbrook time in which he picks up the flute, drops a bit of the bop style, and starts working in a much more complicated style that showed that he had a hell of a lot of room to grow as an artist! This album's Moody's second for Argo – recorded in 1959, with help from the brilliant arranger Tom McIntosh. Players include Johnny Coles, Musa Kaleem, Gene Kee, and McIntosh – and the album features the first reading of Moody's famous "Darben The Redd Foxx", plus "Cookie", "RBQ", "Daahoud", and McIntosh's perennial favorite, "With Malice Toward None".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(70s orange label Cadet pressing. Vinyl has a bubble that plays with a short click on the last track on each side. Cover has light ring & edge wear, cutout notch.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Ahmad Jamal

Happy Moods
Argo, 1960. Very Good
A sprightly set from the Ahmad Jamal Trio – but also a record that's not as brightly colored as you might guess from the title, thanks to a nice undercurrent of darkness in the mix! Jamal's piano work is often nicely punctuated – perhaps living up to the "happy moods" ... LP, Vinyl record album

Buck Clarke Quintet

Drum Sum
Argo, 1960. Very Good+
One of Buck Clarke's fantastic albums from the early sixties, featuring Mr. C himself on conga, with accompaniment by the incredible lost jazz player Charles Hampton, who not only plays piano, sax, and flute with a really dark edge, but also lays down some amazing compositions and arrangements. ...

Landmark work by one of the greatest jazz outfits of the early 60s!

Baby Face Willette

Mo Rock
Argo, 1964. Near Mint-
A screamin' set of organ tracks by the legendary Baby Face Willette – one of the best organists of the early 60s, with a sound that's a lot madder than most! This album's one of two that Baby Face cut for Argo Records in Chicago – and it's a firey trio session with Baby Face wailin' ... LP, Vinyl record album
Argo, 1958. Very Good+
Ramsey and the trio are on the front in tuxedoes, top hats, and tails – but the overall sound of the record is much more in keeping with their soul jazz grooves of the late 50s – not necessarily gentlemanly, but with a worldly appreciation for a variety of styles of music, and perhaps a ... LP, Vinyl record album

JC Heard

This Is Me
Argo, 1958. Very Good+
A cracker of an album from JC Heard – a rare small group outing from the drummer who mostly worked with bigger groups in the 50s – and a real chance for JC to show off a different side of his talents! The setting here is relatively small and relaxed – with players that include ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ramsey Lewis

In Crowd
Argo, 1965. Very Good-
One of the biggest jazz albums of the 60s – and a crucial crossover set from the legendary Ramsey Lewis trio!

A killer live set from Ramsey Lewis and his classic early 60s trio – a record that's not nearly as well known as The In Crowd, but every bit as great!
