Mulligan/Baker

LP (Item 456855) Prestige, 1950s/Mid 60s — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP Gatefold

2LP set released in the 70's featuring work from both of these West Coast giants. The first half focuses on recordings of Gerry Mulligan working with a strong early group – Chet Baker on trumpet, Chico Hamilton on drums, and Carson Smith on bass – on 4 tracks recorded in San Francisco, and 4 others recorded slightly later in LA. The tunes are short, piano-less, and have that fluid 50s Mulligan groove – and titles include "Turnstile", "Limelight", "Carioca", "Bark For Barksdale", and "Line For Lyons". Also included are recordings that feature Gerry's own group – an ensemble that features Nick Travis on trumpet, Allen Eager on tenor, and George Wallington on piano – on all original Mulligan titles that include "Ide's Side", "Bweebida Bobbida", "Kaper", "Funhouse", and "Mulligan's Too". The second half of this set contains material recorded for Prestige by Chet Baker in 1964. Baker plays fluegelhorn, and he's backed by a fairly soulful combo that includes George Coleman on tenor, Kirk Lightsey on piano, Herman Wright on bass, and Roy Brooks on drums. The set grooves in a way that few other Chet Baker albums do, which is something you might expect from a record that has tracks with titles like "Go Go", "Bevan Beeps", and "Rearin' Back".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(UK pressing.)

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.

Screamin' The Blues
New Jazz/Prestige, 1960. Near Mint-

Dynamic Jack McDuff
Prestige, 1964. Near Mint- Gatefold
A great groover from Brother Jack! The record is one of a few that Prestige cut matching Jack's hot quartet with the larger arrangements of Benny Golson – and that formula created some real winners that still sound great today! Sure, the formula was initiated by matching Jimmy Smith with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Prestige, Late 50s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold

The tracks are all long and very open-ended, with players that include Mal Waldron, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Miles Davis All Stars

Walkin'
Prestige, 1954. Near Mint-
As classic an early album by Miles Davis as you can find – truly filled with the "all star" players billed in the title, and a session that has the sharpness of Davis' bop work for Blue Note, yet also lets him stretch out in a slightly more relaxed format! The album features Miles ... LP, Vinyl record album
New Jazz/Prestige, 1958. Very Good+
A very striking album – one of Ray Bryant's most noteworthy of the time! The album features Ray playing solo piano – quite unusual for the period, as most piano jazz records, especially his, were at least cut in a trio format – with additional bass and drums. Yet the approach ... LP, Vinyl record album

Willis Jackson

Tell It
Prestige, 1967. Very Good+
One of Willis' excellent groovers from the mid 60s – cut with his super-hip group that featured Pat Azzara on guitar and Carl Wilson on organ, augmented by trumpet from Frank Robinson and drums by Joseph Hadrick. The tunes are mostly simple numbers, but Jackson handles them with a tight ... LP, Vinyl record album

A magnificent set of two great Booker Ervin sessions recorded in the 60s, and not released until the mid 70s in this great Blue Note two-fer. Record one has also since come out under Horace Parlan's name as "Happy Frame of Mind", and is a great post-Mingus sextet with a tight group that ... LP, Vinyl record album

New Perspective
Blue Note, 1963. Very Good+
A classic album that mixes trumpet and voices in a swirling soulful sound that worked very well for Byrd's career!
