Snooze

LP (Item 48125) Choice, 1975 — Condition: Near Mint-
Dreamy open-ended tracks from pianist Joanne Brackeen – with a spiritual sound that almost reminds us of Alice Coltrane's best work on Impulse – and which represents a very different side of Brackeen's music than her better-known work with Stan Getz during the same time! Of course, the hipness of the music is maybe no surprise – given that the trio features Cecil McBee on bass and Billy Hart on drums – both of whom work behind Brackeen to drive her solos into a searching post-Coltrane kind of mode that's totally wonderful! Titles include "Zulu", "Nefertiti", "Circles", and "C-Sri".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a cut corner and a half split top seam.)

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.

Zoot Sims

Zoot Sims' Party
Choice, 1974. Very Good+
Not as much of a party as you might expect from the title, but quite a lively little album – and possibly one of Zoot's best from the 70s! There's a tightly fluid feel to this record that we really love a lot – not one that's electric or slick, but served up by a great backing trio ... LP, Vinyl record album
Choice/Nadja (Japan), 1974. Near Mint-
One of the greatest jazz albums ever recorded by the legendary Toots Thielemans – a small combo session that stands in great contrast to much of the bigger studio work he was doing in the 70s! Despite the title, the record's a studio one and not a concert – but it's got a relaxed ... LP, Vinyl record album

Buddy Defranco featuring Gordie Fleming

Waterbed
Choice, 1978. Very Good+
A really cool 70s album from reedman Buddy DeFranco – and one that resonates strongly with some of his groovy 60s work with Gumina! As with those records, this one features both clarinet and accordion – the former by Buddy, the latter by Gordie Fleming – used here in a match that' ... LP, Vinyl record album

Horace Silver

Song For My Father
Blue Note, 1963. Near Mint-
An incredible record – the kind of album that only Blue Note could put out, and an instant classic that will sound wonderful forever!

Dizzy Gillespie

Swing Low, Sweet Cadillac
Impulse, 1967. Very Good Gatefold
A brilliant album of Latiny grooves from Diz!

LP, Vinyl record album

Charles Earland

Black Talk!
Prestige, 1970. Near Mint-
A pivotal album in the development of the use of the Hammond organ in jazz – and Charles Earland's first exposure to a large audience!

Gabor Szabo

Wind Sky & Diamonds
Impulse, Late 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold
Wonderfully groovy work from guitar genius Gabor Szabo – one of those sublime late 60s albums when he was finding out that a bit of psych was the perfect setting for his unique electric phrasing! The set features work from a number of different musicians – the great Bill Plummer on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Harris & Les McCann

Second Movement
Atlantic, 1971. Very Good
A massive batch of funky soul jazz – the Second Movement (to the first album Swiss Movement) of the collaboration of Eddie Harris and Les McCann! The vibe here is even freer, and hipper, than on the first set – with a host of long tracks that have Les really working the Fender Rhodes ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fantasy, 1958. Near Mint-
One of Cal Tjader's best late 50s dates for Fantasy Records – thanks to some smoking tenor sax from Jose "Chombo" Silva! The album has Cal working in the very comfortable territory of San Francisco's Blackhawk Nightclub – in a combo that also features familiar players Vince ... LP, Vinyl record album

Originals

California Sunset
Motown, 1975. Near Mint-
One of our favorite albums by The Originals – and one of their most coherent albums on Motown! The record was produced by Lamont Dozier, who also wrote all the songs on the album for the group – and it's kind of a mix of Dozier's strident 70s update of the 60s Motown groove (which he'd ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chi-Lites

Letter To Myself
Brunswick, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold
Perhaps the most heavenly of all the Chi-Lites albums, with soaring harmonies leaping all over beautiful Chicago soul production, and loads of great heartbreaking stories unfolding as the whole thing spins away!
