The title's no joke here, as Jon Faddis uses the record to pay tribute to a rich legacy of trumpeters before him – players like Dizzy Gillespie, Thad Jones, and Roy Eldridge – who he references here in both style and use of compositions. More than just a tribute set, though, the album's a strong one as a leader from Faddis – cut with a quintet that includes Harold Land on tenor, Kenny Barron on piano, Ray Brown on bass, and Mel Lewis on drums. Titles include "Little Jazz", "Instigator", "Night In Tunisia", "Things To Come", "Lil Darlin", and "A Child Is Born".  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Verve, 1962. Very Good+ Gatefold
A great live set recorded in 1962 with some of Cal's best players in the group – pianist Lonnie Hewitt and drummer John Rae, joined by bassist Freddie Schreiber. The groove's a bit less Latin than usual, but the jazz vibe is very strong – and Tjader really shines with the local crowd ... LP, Vinyl record album
