Buddy Rich In Miami

LP (Item 43757) Verve, 1956 — Condition: Very Good

Buddy's in Miami – but that doesn't mean he's on vacation – as the set's a hard burner that ranks as one of his best sides for Verve of the 50s! The set was recorded live at the Dream Bar at the Johnina Hotel in Miami – and Buddy's leading an interesting groove that includes Verve wailer Flip Phillips on tenor sax, plus the much more understated Peter Ind on bass and Ronnie Ball on piano. The combination of players in the quartet makes for a very interesting sound – as at some points it seems as if Phillips and Rich are taking off entirely on their own – making for a tenor/drum groove that's mighty nice! Tracks include "Lover Come Back To Me", "Topsy", "Undecided", "Broadway", and "Jumpin At The Woodside".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(MGM pressing. Cover has a split top seam with some tape remnants and light surface wear.)

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.

Buddy Rich

Different Drummer
RCA, 1971. Very Good+
A 70s gem from Buddy Rich – a session that's cut with some really tightly arranged backings, but done in a way that actually has Buddy kicking the kit even more than usual! Some of the best tunes on the set have a really wicked sense of funk – one that uses a bit more space than in ... LP, Vinyl record album
Pacific Jazz, 1966. Very Good Gatefold
A hard and heavy side from Buddy, and true to his reputation and the title of the LP, he comes out swinging! The set features a top notch mid 60s group, and from the sound of the numbers on this set, ol' Buddy did need to hand out any of his famous lectures on the bus afterwards, with some crisp ...

Norgran, Early 50s. Very Good+
Buddy's got plenty of help to swing with here – on a set that features work by Benny Carter, Sonny Criss, or Willie Smith on alto, George Auld on tenor, Harry Edison on trumpet, and Gerald Wiggins on piano. The alto work of Smith and Criss is especially great – raspy, edgy, and with a ... LP, Vinyl record album

A strange little record, but a great one too – a posthumous album that took older Wes Montgomery sides and souped them up a bit after his death!

Tome VI
Verve, 1967. Near Mint-
An amazing little album from the legendary Gil Melle – a set that's billed as the first album of "electronic jazz", and which features Gil working with his Jazz Electronauts combo!

Jimmy Smith

Got My Mojo Workin'
Verve, 1965. Very Good Gatefold
The title's a bit bluesy, and the record is too – one of the grittier collaborations between Hammond legend Jimmy Smith and ultra-hip arranger Oliver Nelson – who manages to make the whole thing come across with all the right soul styles in the end! There's definitely a nod to the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, Late 50s. Very Good
A great little session – and a meeting that was one of the best things to happen to the Oscar Peterson trio during the 50s!
