Tapestry

LP (Item 45088) Focus, Early 60s — Condition: Very Good+

A great album from guitarist Chuck Wayne – not the hippest player in the world, but a player with an incredible ear and an amazing tone! This obscure set was recorded in Nola's Penthouse in the early 60s – and it's got Chuck in a trio, playing warm and chromatically, in a mode that's not dissimilar from Tal Farlow. Titles include "Askaterine", "Down The Road", "On Green Dolphin Street", "Thank The Lord", and "Softly As In A Morning Sunrise".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono pressing. Back cover has a promo stamp and some aging.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Limelight, 1964. Very Good Gatefold
A fitting title for a great album – Eric Dolphy's last live recording, performed on June 2, 1964, with a trio of youngsters that included two of the greatest names in European avant garde jazz – Misha Mengelberg and Han Bennink! The sound is jagged and a bit free – showing the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cal Tjader

Cal Tjader Plugs In
Skye, 1969. Very Good- Gatefold
A beautifully plugged-in, turned-on session from Cal Tjader – one that features the funky vibist alongside some sweet Fender Rhodes! The session was recorded live, but it's got a flowing, modal quality that rivals Tjader's best work in the studio for Verve and Fantasy at the end of the 60s ... LP, Vinyl record album
TCB, Early 60s/Early 70s. Very Good-
70's issue of one of the Donald Byrd/Pepper Adams sessions for the Warwick label, from the early 60's. The groove is nice and hard, with a very tight, very in-the-pocket sort of sound. A young Herbie Hancock plays piano, and he lays down solos that are a lot more daring, and with a lot more fire, ... LP, Vinyl record album

David T Walker

Going Up!
Revue, Late 60s. Very Good-
A great bit of jazzy soul from guitarist David T Walker – one of the first albums he cut under his own name, after dozens of famous sessions for other artists! The orchestrations have a sweet large late 60s LA feel – with David soloing over the top in a tight style that has lots of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lou Donaldson

Cosmos
Blue Note, 1971. Very Good
An overlooked funky gem from Lou Donaldson – a later date for Blue Note, done in a style that's a bit expanded from his small combo sets of the 60s – but still filled with plenty of soul and groove! The lineup features core key players Leon Spencer on Hammond, Melvin Sparks on guitar, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rufus Harley

Scotch & Soul
Atlantic, 1967. Very Good
A gimmicky cover, a gimmick title, but one heck of a soulful set of jazz! The legendary Rufus Harley is a true original – a saxophonist who also plays bagpipes, but can wail on that instrument – along with tenor and soprano sax – in a mode that's strongly influenced by the best ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy Smith

Prayer Meetin'
Blue Note, 1963. Very Good-
A classic Blue Note meeting of two of the label's top talents in the early 60s – Hammond hero Jimmy Smith, and the up-and-rising Stanley Turrentine on tenor! Turrentine's simply great at this point – playing with a raspy edge on the bottom of his tone, sounding dark and mysterious ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lee Morgan

City Lights
Blue Note, 1957. Very Good
One of Lee Morgan's most sparkling sessions from the early years – a record that already shows a sense of depth and imagination that would take Lee way beyond simple hardbop solo work! There's a sensitivity here that owes something of a debt to Clifford Brown, yet which is much more ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kenny Dorham

Kenny Dorham & Friends
Jazzland, Late 50s. Very Good-
Kenny Dorham plays sweet hardbop trumpet on the two different sessions that make up this LP. One session's got Cannonball Adderley on alto and Cedar Walton on piano, with sort of a sweet laidback sound, as with some of Dorham's other sessions from the time. Track on this one include "Blue ... LP, Vinyl record album

Les McCann

McCanna
Pacific Jazz, 1964. Very Good-
A great Latin groove from the mighty Les McCann – a smoking set that adds in extra percussion from Willie Correa – who gives the record a sound that's quite a change from the usual McCann groove! The percussion is wonderful throughout – and given that the great Paul Humphrey is ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tyrone Davis

In The Mood
Columbia, 1979. Very Good
Our favorite album ever from Tyrone Davis – even if it's completely different than most of his other work too! The set's got a wonderfully smooth feel right from the start – a mellow-grooving, slow-stepping approach that works perfectly for Tyrone's wonderful vocals – pushing ... LP, Vinyl record album
United Artists, 1974. Very Good+
A stone classic from Bobby Womack – one of those records that has all his best elements firmly in place, put forward at a level that's sophisticated and polished, yet never too commercial at all! Bobby's voices are still incredible – that raspy, personal feel that's rooted in country ... LP, Vinyl record album
