Around Midnight With Cootie Williams & Wini Brown

LP (Item 476797) Jaro, Late 50s — Condition: Very Good+

A cool session from Cootie Williams – working here as a vocalist as much as a trumpeter, often in the company of female singer Wini Brown! The set has both singers working together on some hip duets, then stepping apart and working on their own for some tracks too – an approach that's a bit like the Louis Armstrong/Ella Fitzgerald recordings over at Verve, but handled here with a bit more swing overall! Arrangements are by Quincy Jones, who knows how to make the record move nicely – and who also keeps things away from any too-hokey territory – and titles include "Around Midnight", "Bewitched", "That Old Feeling", "Goin Around", "Lover", and "Gone Again".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono white label promo with deep groove. Cover has a partially split top seam, but is otherwise in nice shape.)

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.

Verve, 1961. Near Mint-
While actually not as electrifying as some of Dizzy's other albums from the time, this one's still pretty darn great, and features his great group with Leo Wright on alto and Lalo Schfrin on piano. The band grooves with a subtly Latinish vibe, and the tracks are nice and long long long. Titles ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stan Getz & Bill Evans

Chick Corea/Bill Evans Sessions
Verve, Mid 60s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Excellent 60s work by Stan Getz – featuring two of his greatest sessions ever! One disc features some of Getz's best straight jazz of the 60s – played in a perfectly matched quartet with Bill Evans on piano, a perfect choice for Getz's lyrical soulful tone at the time. Titles include ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lester Young

Pres (Charlie Parker)
Charlie Parker, Early 50s. Near Mint-
No real date or personnel on this one, and the album's a live set recorded, most likely, at some time in the 50s. The quality of the recording isn't great, and you hear a heck of a lot of crowd noise – but the work's an interesting document of Pres during the period, as the tunes are all ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stan Getz/Jimmy Rowles

Peacocks
Columbia, 1975. Near Mint-
A real standout in the Stan Getz catalog of the 70s – a session of mostly spare duets with pianist Jimmy Rowles, done in a way that really breaks from the format of Stan's other work of the time! Rowles here has a raspy warmth that brings out new voicings in Getz's tenor – an ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lee Ritenour

Captain's Journey
Elektra, 1979. Near Mint-
A masterful fusion set from guitarist Lee Ritenour – one that expands his sound a bit more than usual by adding in vocals on a number of tracks – but in a way that really gets at the mainstream soul influences that bubble through his jazz work! The set features key vocal appearances ... LP, Vinyl record album

Larry Carlton

Friends
Warner, 1983. Near Mint-
Larry Carlton's got plenty of great friends on board for this sweet session – including Michael Brecker on tenor, Joe Sample and Terry Trotter on Fender Rhodes, Paulinho Da Costa on percussion, and even BB King on guitar for one track! Yet the overall vibe is still very much Larry's own ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chess, 1966. Near Mint-
This was the follow-up LP to Billy Stewart's huge single of Gershwin's "Summertime", and it's got a similar approach of "funky soul takes on American pop music standards". "Summertime" isn't on the album, but all the tracks have a sound that falls in the same mode ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, Late 50s. Near Mint-
Magical work by one of the greatest harmony groups ever! The record is a truly magical album that has the group's voices supported on a brace of electric guitars, which makes for a really cool sound!
