Jazz With A Twist

LP (Item 45418) Atlantic, 1962 — Condition: Near Mint-

A firey stormer from the great Slide Hampton! The album's one of his few early sides for Atlantic – and like the others, it's a groundbreaking batch of larger group material, with slide out front on trombone, and the rest of the ensemble vamping along like a tight Blue Note combo. Players are excellent – and include George Coleman on tenor, Horace Parlan on piano, Hobart Dotson on trumpet, and Ray Barretto on drums – and Slide makes them come together so tightly, you'd think they were working together every night of the week! Titles include "The Barbarians", "Strollin", "The Jazz Twist", "Red Top", "Slide Slid", and "Day In Day Out".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono red & purple label pressing. Includes the Atlantic inner sleeve. Cover has some vintage sale stickers and a round peeled spot from sticker removal on front.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • 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.

Charles Mingus

Oh Yeah
Atlantic, 1962. Very Good+
Quite a crazy little record from Charles Mingus! Mingus plays piano and sings (yes, you read that right!) in a tight sextet with Booker Ervin and Roland Kirk on reeds, and Jimmy Knepper on trombone. Mingus is trying out a kind of messed-up, blues-inspired sound here – but for some reason ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hubert Laws

Laws Of Jazz
Atlantic, 1964. Very Good
Massive early work from Hubert Laws – and a set that really shows some more the more Latin and soul sides of his talents! Tracks here have a tight punch throughout – with some great New York 60s rhythms that feature a young Chick (then called "Armando") Corea on piano, then a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1976. Very Good+
With Ralphe Armstrong on bass, Allan Zavod on keyboards, Casey Scheuerell on drums and percussion, and Peter Maunu and Joaquin Lievano on guitar. LP, Vinyl record album

Clare Fischer Big Band

Thesaurus
Atlantic, 1968. Near Mint-
An unusual session from the great Clare Fischer – although probably his best-known record as well! Clare cut many other jazz sides in a smaller, more intimate setting – but this album features his full talents as a larger arranger – working with a hip ensemble, and turning in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hubert Laws

Wild Flower
Atlantic, 1972. Sealed
Flute, strings, and soul – a wonderful counterpart to some of Hubert Laws' funkier albums of the time – and a record cut with some tremendous backings! The core group features Hubert on assorted flutes, Gary Burton on vibes, Chick Corea on piano, and Bernard Purdie on drums – all ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Harris

Best Of Eddie Harris
Atlantic, Mid/Late 60s. Near Mint-
A collection of 60s recordings for Atlantic, starting in 1965 with Cedar Walton on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums, and later in 1967 with Jodie Christian on piano, Melvin Jackson on bass, Richard Smith on drums, and Ray Barretto on percussion, and a 1968 date with Heywood ... LP, Vinyl record album

Freddie Hubbard

Soul Experiment
Atlantic, 1969. Very Good+
A wonderful session of hip soul jazz tracks from Freddie Hubbard – mostly short tight and groovy, but played with a sophisticated style that points the way towards the soul jazz sound of the 70s. Soul Experiment is a fitting title – as Freddie works hard with hip players like Billy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Herbie Mann

Windows Opened
Atlantic, 1968. Very Good+
Herbie Mann's opening plenty of windows with this one – and plenty of doors too – really letting some new influences come to his music, thanks to the presence of Sonny Sharrock on guitar and Roy Ayers on vibes! The album's one of Herbie's wildest from the 60s – and the mix of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Buddy Montgomery

This Rather Than That
Impulse, 1969. Near Mint- Gatefold
Probably the best of Buddy Montgomery's solo albums, with a tight little group that features Mel Rhyne on organ, Jodie Christian on piano, and brother Monk Montgomery on sweet heavy bass – all coming together in a messed up style of funky jazz! Buddy plays piano and vibes on a number of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ron Carter

Blues Farm
CTI, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold
Sweet electric work from Ron Carter – subtle magic in the best CTI mode! Ron arranged the set himself, but he's working with a core group of CTI players that includes Bob James and Richard Tee on electric piano, Hubert Laws on flute, Ralph MacDonald on percussion, and Billy Cobham on drums ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stan Kenton

Hair
Capitol, Late 60s. Near Mint-
A great album by Stan Kenton – a reading of the Hair score, and a lot groovier than most of his other 60s work! Part of the reason for this is Ralph Carmichael – who does the arrangements for the record, and brings in plenty of the cool touches he was using on his own records from the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stanley Turrentine

In The Pocket
Fantasy, 1975. Very Good+ Gatefold
Although this should be a "sell out" album for Stan – because it's got his tenor set amidst some sweeping larger arrangements – it's actually still a pretty dope little LP, and one that shows Turrentine's capacity for hitting a nice groove in kind of a soundtrack-y funk vein. ...
