Ain't Doing Too B-A-D, Bad

LP (Item 4738) Cadet, 1967 — Condition: Near Mint-

Sweet LA soul jazz from trumpeter Bobby Bryant – an oft-overlooked player with a hard hitting sound that was a bit like Nat Adderley! The album's one of Bobby's best (and few) – and it's got a really groovy little feel, almost in a Jazz Crusaders mode – with a small combo playing live on tight bouncy little tracks that still have some nice room for solo work. The Crusaders reference is a clear one – as Joe Sample's in the group on piano – and other players on the record include Hadley Caliman and Herman Riley, both of whom play tenor. Titles include "Sunny", "Love Is Supreme", "58th Street", "Don't Say Goodbye", and "Blues For Ramona".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono blue fade label pressing. Includes the Cadet inner sleeve. Cover has a cutout grommet.)

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.

Ramsey Lewis

Movie Album
Cadet, Mid 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold
Jazzy and classy – and one of the first of Ramsey's albums to feature him working with larger arrangements instead of the usual trio. In this case, the whole thing was arranged and conducted by Richard Evans – with a spacey hip sound that's not too far from some of Ramsey's later work ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ramsey Lewis

Up Pops Ramsey Lewis
Cadet, 1967. Very Good
Although Ramsey first scored big with his spare trio recordings during the late 50s, by this point in his career, Cadet were wisely playing with his sound a lot, adding in new elements to keep things fresh and soulful. Such is the case with this album, which has Ramsey's second trio (with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ramsey Lewis

Dancing In The Street
Cadet, 1967. Near Mint- Gatefold
A late 60s groover from the second Ramsey Lewis trio – the one that features Cleveland Eaton on bass and Maurice White on drums, both doing a pretty great job of filling the spot vacated by Eldee Young and Red Holt! The album's a live one, cut in the successful mode of Ramsey's records with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny Stitt

Mr Bojangles
Cadet, 1973. Near Mint-
Sweet 70s work from Sonny Stitt – quite different than his bop years, but with a smooth funky finish that puts it in the same territory as CTI or Kudu Records in the 70s! Sonny's getting full backing here – arrangements by Don Sebesky, who crafts some elegant and slinky sounds for the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ahmad Jamal

Cry Young
Cadet, 1967. Very Good+
A sweet swinger from Ahmad – a record that has his usual trio (Jamil Nasser bass, Frank Gant drums) augmented by the super-hip Howard Roberts Chorale on a number of tracks. Roberts' "jazz with voices" style isn't as out there as some of the work of Coleridge Perkinson, but he does ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ramsey Lewis

Hang On Ramsey
Cadet, 1965. Very Good+
Easily one of Ramsey Lewis' most successful records – featuring the hit soul jazz style that he forged with the Young/Holt rhythm combo, honed to perfection before a live crowd at The Lighthouse in Hermosa Beach. The record's a key part of Ramsey's live recorded output – showing the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Interaction (2LP set)
Cadet, 1956/1960/1965. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold

Chess/Cadet, Mid 60s/Mid 70s. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
A 70s 2-fer that combines 2 albums recorded for Cadet in the mid 60s – one issued under Nelson's name, the other under Lou Donaldson's, but both featuring arrangements by Nelson. The Nelson LP is a pretty darn nice session in which Nelson is the lead soloist with a large group that includes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Houston Person

Truth!
Prestige, 1970. Very Good+
One of Houston Person's first forays into the jazz funk sound that other Prestige Records players were picking up at the time – a sweet little set with some nicely extended tunes! The groove here is a bit harder than some of Person's previous soul jazz sets – with some tightly snapping ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chris Hinze Combination

Bamboo Magic
Atlantic, 1978. Near Mint-
One of the few American albums issued by this Dutch funky flautist who cut more than his share of heavy discs on the other side of the Atlantic. Hinze was part of the lowland funk scene that included John Lee & Gerry Brown (both of whom are on this record), and his music shares a similar ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Lytle

Swingin' At The Gate
Pacific Jazz, 1966. Very Good+ Gatefold
A great little live album from soul jazz vibist Johnny Lytle – and maybe one of his best of the 60s! The set was recorded at the Village Gate, and it mixes Lytle's usual blend of vibes and organ with a nice touch of Latin percussion – which really expands the sound in a great way! ...
