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.
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.
A live set very much in classic Verve mode – produced by Benny himself, and recorded in Tokyo in 1977 with a group that includes Budd Johnson on tenor and soprano, Cecil Payne on baritone, Cat Anderson and Joe Newman on trumpet, Britt Woodman on trombone, Nat Pierce on piano, Mudell Lowe on ... LP, Vinyl record album
An unexpected treasure – like so many of Art Farmer's later albums! The record is ostensibly a tribute to the music of Billy Strayhorn – which might make us expect some soporific Ellington cliches – but the session's really just a small group one, played by Art with a quintet ... LP, Vinyl record album
Andre Previn's got some very hip pals here – drummer Shelly Manne and bassist Red Mitchell – both frequent partners during the late 50s, especially on this classic run of jazz-Broadway records for Contemporary! The spirit here is very much like that of the famous My Fair Lady date made ... LP, Vinyl record album
Buddy Collette shows off his full range of reed skills here – blowing tenor, alto, flute, and clarinet – in varying lineups that include piano from Don Friedman and Clavin Jackson, drums from Shelly Manne, and bass from John Goodman and Leroy Vinnegar! LP, Vinyl record album
A key early entry in the "jazz meets Broadway" genre – and a record that was so successful, it went onto inspire countless imitations! Shelly Manne's working here in a lightly playful trio setting – alongside Andre Previn on piano and Leroy Vinnegar on bass, in a reading of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Much more interesting than some of Barney's earlier records – possibly because he's working with a hip, flexible combo – one that includes Marv Jenkins on piano and flute, Jerry Good on bass, and Stan Popper on drums. The tracks are a mix of groovers and mellow numbers – with ... LP, Vinyl record album
A very cool album that has Shelly Manne and Jack Marshall going nuts on a bunch of percussion, drums, and other odd instruments! Marshall mostly plays spare acoustic guitar, with some very nutty changes – and Manne proves that he's a very adept percussionist way past his usual west coast ... LP, Vinyl record album
Lovely work from George Cables – one of the strongest piano stars to emerge from the west coast scene of the 70s, and one of the most soulful too! The album features a core trio of Cables on acoustic piano, plus Rufus Reid on bass and Eddie Gladden on drums – and they're joined on 2 ... LP, Vinyl record album
A real killer from Hammond hero Charles Earland – a record that stretches out as much as his studio gems for Prestige, but in a slightly different way! The band includes lesser known players like trumpeter Elmer Coles, alto player James Vass, and conga player Kenneth Nash – but they ... LP, Vinyl record album
