Brand New Swinging Together Again – The Great Kai & JJ

LP (Item 48281) Impulse, Early 60s — Condition: Near Mint-

The famous 50s team of JJ Johnson and Kai Winding are reunited strongly here – after working alone for several years on their own projects! The groove here is a bit more open and less arranged than some of the pair's earlier projects – mostly just two trombones in the lead, soloing separately, with backing from a rhythm trio – split into two for each half of the album, with Bill Evans, Paul Chambers, and Roy Haynes handling side one; and Evans, Tommy Williams, and Art Taylor on side two. Tunes are short, but include deft demonstrations of the solo talents of each player – and titles include "Judy", "Alone Together", "Going, Going, Going", "Trixie", "This Could Be The Part Of Something", "Georgia On My Mind", "I Concentrate On You", and "Just For A Thrill".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(80s MCA pressing in a barcode cover, with light wear and an index label with clear tape on the spine.)

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.

K + JJ – East Coast Jazz Series No 7
Bethlehem, Mid 50s. Very Good
A cool quintet session from the great trombonists JJ Johnson and Kai Winding – one that really lets their twin horns soar free together – with only a bit of light backing to spur them on! The group's got a great rhythm section – with Dick Katz on piano, Al Harewood on drums, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Keith Jarrett

Shades
ABC/Impulse, 1976. Near Mint-
A lost gem from Keith's "with horns" period – a quintet session from the mid 70s, recorded with a group that features Dewey Redman on tenor, plus Charlie Haden on bass, Paul Motian on drums and percussion, and Guilherme Franco on additional percussion.

A motherlode of great jazz tracks – 3LPs worth of material pulled from the catalog of the legendary Impulse Records, and laid out back to back, as kind of a progression of the modern throughout the label's history. Titles include "New Blue" by Marion Brown, "Bulbs" by ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lionel Hampton

You Better Know It !!!
Impulse, 1964. Very Good+ Gatefold
A warm and wonderful 60s session from Lionel Hampton – recorded in a personal and intimate way, one that even surpasses his great small combo sides of the 50s! There's a relaxed feel here that you don't always get with Hamp – a gently grooving quality that we really like a lot, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chico Hamilton

El Chico
Impulse, 1965. Very Good Gatefold
Amazing, simply amazing – and light years ahead of the staid sounds that Chico Hamilton was cutting in the 50s!

Gabor Szabo

More Sorcery
Impulse, 1967. Near Mint- Gatefold
A great record that's sort of a follow-up to Gabor's excellent Sorcerer LP – and like that one, features long tracks that have a spiralling modal feel that's much more serious, much more grooving, and a lot less campish than some of his other albums of the time. The album features a two-guita ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dot/Impulse, Late 50s. Near Mint-
Pretty cool work from west coast trumpeting brothers Pete & Conte Candoli – released to coincide with their appearance in Bell, Book, & Candle, where they worked in a small jazz combo fronted by Jack Lemmon (as a warlock!) on bongos! The style of the tracks is similar to those in the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Coleman Hawkins

Desafinado
Impulse, 1964. Near Mint- Gatefold
The Hawk, in prime late form, lays down some beautiful tenor solos over gentle bossa nova accompaniment – working in a mode that's much more satisfying than just a "classic player meets bossa" session, angularly crafting the solos with that dark edge that he had in all of his later ... LP, Vinyl record album
Impulse, 1960s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A collection of recordings from 1962 and 1969, with sidemen including Thad Jones, Frank Foster, Freddie Green, Eddie Davis, and Harry Edison. LP, Vinyl record album

George Benson

White Rabbit
CTI, 1971. Very Good Gatefold
One of the moodiest sessions on CTI from the early days – and a landmark album that took George Benson from the funky jazz scene into the upper reaches of 70s jazz. The record was put together by Don Sebesky, and it's a lot more high concept than some of George's earlier work – and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jack DeJohnette

New Directions
ECM, 1978. Very Good
A seminal statement from drummer Jack DeJohnette – a musician who'd already made a pretty big impact in the years before this set – but who really seemed to take off with his New Directions group on ECM! Every player in the lineup is a key sonic pioneer on their instrument – John ... LP, Vinyl record album
