This image is a general representation of the item and the actual product may differ slightly in terms of color shading, logo placement, borders, or other small details. Used items may have various cosmetic differences as well.
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.
A great collection of Milt's excellent sides as a leader for Savoy, pulled together for a 70s release. Wonderful bop rendered here in a small agile group that features the vibist alongside the great Lucky Thompson on tenor, with Hank Jones, Wendell Marshall and Kenny Clarke in the rhythm section. ... LP, Vinyl record album
A surprisingly nice pairing – the vibes of Milt Jackson and some larger horn backings that fall heavy on the trumpet and trombone side of the spectrum! The sound's not nearly as heavy or hokey as you'd expect – thanks to arrangements by Melba Liston – and the horns do a nice job ... LP, Vinyl record album
Excellent work as a leader from vibist Milt Jackson – very different than his Atlantic recordings with the Modern Jazz Quartet! This set has Milt working in a few different settings – including a great larger group with Tommy Flanagan on piano, Jimmy Heath on tenor, and Tate Houston on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Great early material from Milt Jackson – very different than his 50s material with the MJQ, and much more in the spirit of his work for Blue Note! The groups here vary – and in addition to vibes, milt handles a bit of piano, and even sings on one track too – alongside players who ... LP, Vinyl record album
Forgive Roger Kellaway for all the other snoozy work he's ever done – because this album's a treasure! Kellaway's working with a jazz trio that includes drummer Dave Bailey – and the set's a hip one with a mix of straight soul jazz grooving and some more experimental twists that ... LP, Vinyl record album
A classic album from Gene Ammons – one that features the tenor legend at his prime, working in two different settings! The first batch has Ammons "battling" Sonny Stitt in a set of stuff that features hard twin tenors in the frontline, with the kind of cutting contests the two of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Gator Tail and Brother Jack crack it long and lean, with lots of hard soul jazz tracks that have the both of them wailing on their respective instruments. There's some nice originals here, including "Gil's Pills", "Snake Crawl", and "Backtrack". The set also includes ... LP, Vinyl record album
A set that's less a "summit" than a great collection of groovy work for Prestige Records in the 60s – tracks that didn't make it onto other full albums of the time, but which feature material by some of the most soulful talents on the label! Tenorist Gene Ammons is the main star ... LP, Vinyl record album
Includes recordings with several line-ups – "Billie's Bounce", "Prelude To A Kiss", and "It Don't Mean A Thing" with Barry Galbraith on guitar, Leonard Gaskin on bass, and Bobby Donaldson on drums; "Body And Soul" with Hank Mobley on tenor, Donald Byrd ... LP, Vinyl record album
Classic Jug, playing in a laidback open-ended blowing session, with other strong Prestige players – like Coltrane, Jerome Richardson, Paul Quinichette, Art Taylor, and Mal Waldron, who always seems to be the driving force between most Prestige sides like this. The album has only 4 tracks, ... LP, Vinyl record album
A vibes and organ delight – a rare early set from Johnny Hammond Smith, and a date that features a key appearance from vibist Lem Winchester! Winchester only cut a handful of dates before shuffling off this mortal coil far too soon – and he's a hell of a player, with a richly chromatic ... LP, Vinyl record album
The title's not a typo, but a strong reference to the influence of Lester Young on the tenor sound of Stan Getz – especially in these early recordings! The material is right from the end of the 40s – and shows a young Stan really coming into his own on Prestige Records – blowing ... LP, Vinyl record album
