Snooze

LP (Item 48125) Choice, 1975 — Condition: Near Mint-
Originally: 16.99
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.

Sir Elf
Choice, 1973. Sealed
LP...$6.99 11.99
The first solo set from Roland Hanna – even though he had a long and varied career in dating back to the 50s – and a gem of a timeless solo piano jazz recorded from the early 70s. It's probably the best record to his name, with warmth to spare, a few recorded in a small recital hall at ... LP, Vinyl record album

Albert Ayler

New Grass
Impulse, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold
One of the last albums that Albert Ayler ever recorded before his strange and mysterious early death – and one of his most memorable records as well!

Art Pepper

Early Art (2LP Set)
Blue Note, Mid 50s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold

Gato Barbieri & Dollar Brand

Confluence
Arista Freedom, 1968. Very Good+
Two jazz giants of the 70s come together on this rare Italian recording from the late 60s – South African pianist Dollar Brand (Abdulla Ibrahim) and Argentine tenorist Gato Barbieri – both working here in spare duo formation, with edges that are a fair bit sharper than most of their ... LP, Vinyl record album

Harvey Mandel

Games Guitars Play
Philips, 1969. Very Good+
Guitars playing plenty of games here – easy to do when in the godlike hands of Harvey Mandel – a guitarist rooted in blues, but also with lots of psychedelic inclinations as well! This album's one of Harvey's best as a solo act – and gets some sweet fuzzy production by the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dexter Gordon

Apartment
Steeplechase (Denmark), 1974. Very Good+
A standout 70s set from Dexter Gordon – one that's a bit tighter than some of his longer-blown dates from overseas – and which almost sparkles with the same power as his 60s albums on Blue Note! The group here is nice and tight – with Kenny Drew on piano, Niels Henning Orsted ... LP, Vinyl record album

Les McCann

Layers
Atlantic, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold
This might well be the best album that Les McCann ever cut during the 70s! It's got some killer electric piano riffs, of the sort that are being sampled heavily today by the kids, and which are getting his music to a whole new af generation. The tracks have a tight spacey funk sound, and they don' ... LP, Vinyl record album

Quincy Jones

Mellow Madness
A&M, 1973. Very Good+
A really great, oft-overlooked album from the best period of Quincy Jones! This album is quite possibly Quincy's most farthest-reaching – as he works in an array of styles that really shows his growing genius in the studio – not just jazz and soundtrack modes, but more soul-based ones, ...

Ornette Coleman

Twins
Atlantic, Late 50s/Early 60s. Near Mint-
A key album for any fan of classic Ornette Coleman – a 1971 Atlantic release that pulled together tracks from the late 50's and early 60's that didn't make it onto Ornette's earlier records for the label! Why these tracks weren't released at the time is a mystery to all, because the material ... LP, Vinyl record album
