Count Basie & His Orchestra (10 inch album)

LP (Item 470806) Clef/Mercury, 1952 — Condition: Very Good
An early collaboration between Count Basie and Norman Granz – and a real cooker too! Granz shows some great foresight here – grabbing Basie at a time when his group was just getting its groove back, and really learning how to hit a more modern sound! The set includes some great tenor sax work from Eddie Lockjaw Davis and Paul Quinichette –and titles include "Sure Thing", "Jive At Five", "Every Tub", and "New Basie Blues". In a great David Stone Martin cover too!  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Black label Clef pressing with trumpeter logo and deep groove. Cover has light wear and aging, ink stamp on back.)

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.

Hall Of Fame
Verve, Mid 50s. Very Good+
Excellent work from that wonderful 50s moment when Count Basie was really reinventing his band – stripping things down, getting nice and lean, and putting in this soulful kick to the rhythms that really helped modernize the groove!

Mercury, 1959. Very Good+
A great session from 1959 – one that features John Coltrane playing tenor in a combo that's billed as being led by altoist Cannonball Adderley – but which is really more of a Miles Davis combo, without Miles! The set was recorded in Chicago when both were stopping through the city ... LP, Vinyl record album
