A lost late 70s gem from Muse Records – one of the few albums we've ever seen from vibist Charlie Shoemake, a really great player with a heavy dose of soul! Charlie's working here with a warm trio that includes Kenny Barron on piano, Cecil McBee on bass, and Al Foster on drums – a group who'd be more than great enough on their own, but who sound even more wonderful in the company of Shoemake's sharp-edged vibes. The date recalls some of Barron's later recordings with vibes, but also has a bit more 70s warmth too – and titles include "Sunstroke", "That's Earl Brother", "This Happy Madness", "You'll Love New York", and "42nd Street Changes". (White label promo. Cover has light wear and a few pieces of tape.)  © 1996-2016, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

One of the few cases in jazz where an oft-played classic still resonates with power! The record itself is a key cap to Miles Davis' already-groundbreaking years of the 60s – a bold step forward, not just for his nascent electric sound, but also for jazz in general – and the benchmark ...
