LP, Vinyl record album

(€5.82 || £5.14 || ¥780) (approx.)

As if the screaming title didn't tell you enough, the album features Shank's Brazilian sides – apparently culled from his Pacific Jazz recordings from the 50s and 60s, featuring players that range from Laurindo Almeida to Chet Baker to Joe Pass, Clare Fischer, and Joao Donato. Bud's always at his best in these moments – and heck, some say he even invented the format! Titles include "If I Should Lose You", "Carioca Hills", "Summer Samba", "Elizete", "Nocturno", "Sausalito", "Otem A Note", and "Samba Do Aviao".  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Pacific Jazz, 1954. Very Good+
Original 10" LP featuring the great alto player amidst a lineup that includes 3 west coast trombonists, and a west coast rhythm section with Claude Williamson, Joe Mondragon, and Shelly Manne. Bob Cooper did the arrangements, and the sound's got that nice measured feel that he gets, but with ... LP, Vinyl record album
World Pacific, 1957. Good+
A wonderful record – the first of only a few from this unique group that featured Buddy Montgomery on vibes, Monk Montgomery on electric bass, Richie Crabtree on piano, and Benny Barth on drums! The lineup's a bit like that of the Modern Jazz Quartet in the 50s, but the sound is something ... LP, Vinyl record album
Eternal Equinox
World Pacific, Late 60s. Very Good Gatefold
One of Gerald Wilson's hippest albums for World Pacific – and all of them are pretty darn hip! This set is one of Gerald's last for the label – cut in a run of very successful, and very strong big band soul jazz albums that brought together the cream of the crop of the LA underground. ...

Timeless
World Pacific, Early 50s. Near Mint-
A 60s collection of older material cut by Mulligan and Baker in the early 50s – pulled from a set of recordings done by Pacific Jazz, when both players were at their simple best! The format is often very simple – mostly quartet or quintet format – some with Baker and Mulligan in ... LP, Vinyl record album
World Pacific, 1959. Very Good+
The Mastersounds seem to take a page from the book of the MJQ – especially with a title like this – but as usual, the end results are a fair bit hipper! The album features the classic lineup with Buddy Montgomery on vibes, Monk Montgomery on electric bass, Richie Crabtree on piano, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Home Cookin'
Blue Note, Early 60s. Very Good+
Classic work from Jimmy Smith – a smokin' quartet session from the early 60's, one that sports a rare appearance by Percy France on tenor on most of the tracks! France has a great raw sound that gives the session a nice little edge – and the rest of the group features Kenny Burrell on ... LP, Vinyl record album

World Pacific, Late 60s. Very Good Gatefold
Buddy at his soulful late 60s best – not content to keep in the same groove as older years, and working here with a great lineup that includes some excellent younger players! Charles Owens is in the group on alto, and the set also features work by Don Menza on tenor, Art Pepper on alto, Pat ... LP, Vinyl record album
Hot Dog
Blue Note, 1969. Good+
From the title, to the cover, to the gritty grooves way down in the wax – this has got to be one of the funkiest Blue Note albums ever – a real landmark from the legendary Lou Donaldson! The set kicks off with a hard and heavy groove from the very first note – thanks to some ... LP, Vinyl record album
Body & Soul
Prestige/Status, 1965. Good+
Nice laid-back blowing session tracks for Prestige, ostensibly led by Donald Byrd and Kenny Burrell, though the label may just have been capitalizing on their names on the cover. Players include Byrd, Hank Mobley, Mal Waldron, Paul Quinichette, Art Taylor and Sonny Red in a number of different ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tjader
Fantasy, Late 60s. Very Good
An excellent album from legendary vibist Cal Tjader – and one of his truly electric albums! A key factor to the greatness of this one is keyboardist Al Zulaica – who plays some amazing Fender Rhodes on the album, really unlocking a whole new sound of Cal's vibes in the process! The ...

Live At The Lighthouse
Prestige, 1972. Very Good
A real killer from Earland! The record swings incredibly hard, with a tight jazzy groove that sounds like his early work for Prestige from the first few albums. The band includes lesser known players like trumpeter Elmer Coles, alto player James Vass, and conga player Kenneth Nash – but ... LP, Vinyl record album
