Zodiac Suite

LP (Item 44676) Halpern Sounds, 1977 — Condition: Very Good

Trippy stuff! Side one of the album features spare electric piano tunes – dedicated to the Zodiac, and featuring Halpern noodling around on the keys in a nice dreamy mode. Side two features longer tracks in a similar spacey mode – and titles include "Moonrise Over Orion", "The Heard Eye", "Blues For Arcturus", and "Sky Boat Theme".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Blue label pressing. Cover has some light surface wear and a few small splits on the top seam.)

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.

Charles Earland

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

Quincy Jones

Gula Matari
A&M, 1970. Near Mint- Gatefold
A real step forward for Quincy Jones – a record that really shows the jazzman moving into sophisticated new territory – a sound that's just right for the CTI generation! The album's got a vibe that's a bit similar to Quincy's Walking In Space album, but it's a lot deeper too – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Richard Groove Holmes

Welcome Home
World Pacific, Late 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold
Groovy set of soul jazz organ tracks that has Groove playing with a large-ish group that includes George Freeman, Tom Scott, Anthony Ortega, Wilton Felder, and Paul Humphrey. The set's not totally hard and funky, but it's got a nice soulful swinging groove, with a tight LA 60s sound to it. ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stan Getz

Captain Marvel
Columbia, 1972. Very Good
A wicked album that's one of Stan Getz's best from the 70s! The record features Stan reunited with Chick Corea, whose warm lyricism was the lynchpin in Getz's landmark Sweet Rain – the stunning session from 1968 that is perhaps our favorite-ever Getz album. Corea plays electric piano here, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Harris

I Need Some Money
Atlantic, 1975. Very Good
A nice little funk album from Eddie – one that shouldn't work, but does nicely, thanks to a unique approach to the groove! Eddie's still playing plenty of electric sax on the set – and is going for a sound here that's equal parts soul jazz, modal groove, and down and dirty funk! The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ronnie Laws

Fever
Blue Note, 1976. Very Good+
An album that's smoother than some of Ronnie's earlier work, and perhaps without the same dark edge – but still a nice batch of soulful fusion tunes, with production by Wayne Henderson, in his classic 70s At-Home Productions mode! By that, we mean that a number of the tracks have a good ... LP, Vinyl record album

Frank Lowe

Flam
Black Saint (Italy), 1975. Very Good+
A classic 70s session from Frank Lowe – done with a really raw feel that reminds us of his well-remembered work for the ESP Records label a few years before! The whole thing's pretty freewheeling – classic avant soulful jazz at its best, played by Lowe on tenor, Joseph Bowie on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chubby Jackson

Chubby Takes Over
Everest, 1958. Near Mint-
Don't hold Chubby's name against him – because this is a really great little set, leaner and meaner than you might expect! The album has Chubby taking over from Woody Herman – with whom he'd worked for many years, and from whom he got most of the players for this session. The album's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Miles Davis

Tutu
Warner, 1986. Near Mint-
A nice collaboration between Miles and Marcus Miller from the latter part of Miles career. As much of the recording here is overdubbed, with many multiple instruments played by Miller, it doesn't have the improvised vibe of Miles' classic performances, but the songwriting and arrangements are head ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chris Connor

This Is Chris
Bethlehem, Mid 50s. Sealed
Beautifully icy vocals from the amazing Chris Connor – the kind of record that set a new standard for vocal jazz back in the 50s! The session's a small group one – with Chris singing intimately alongside backing from Herbie Mann on flute and tenor, Kai Winding and JJ Johnson on ... LP, Vinyl record album
