CD (Item 487248) Jazzland/OJC, 1961 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock


Benny Green's trombone playing has always been a bright light in a sometimes bleak side of the jazz spectrum. His style is deep and soulful, and he swings the trombone with a fluidity that most would apply to hardbop trumpet players. This sweet quintet session from 1961 has him playing in a very tight combo with Johnny Griffin, Junior Mance, Paul Chambers, and Ben Riley – and the sound is as raw as some of the best soul jazz sessions on Jazzland from the time. The record's a tough one to find, and it's one of Green's best albums of all time. Titles include "Green's Scene", "Milkshake", "Sweet Sucker", and "African Dream".

Additional Marks & Notes

Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible. All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

Milestone/OJC, 1972. Used
The title's an apt one, as the session features spare, unaccompanied duets between guitarist Jim Hall and bassist Ron Carter – done at a time when both players were stepping into some of their warmest, most sensitive years. Hall's especially great here – and even though he had already ... CD

... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1961. Used
Searing live work from Eric Dolphy – part of a series of recordings that set a whole new standard for live jazz recording! The record features Dolphy going even farther out than on his studio sides from the time – as the record features very long tracks performed by a crack group that ... CD
Afro-Cuban Jazz Moods
Pablo/OJC, 1975. Used
A great Dizzy Gillespie Latin session recorded during the mid 70s – proof that he could still hold onto the cubop spirit of the old days! The session features a larger group arranged and conducted by Chico O'Farril – who manages to keep a solidly Cuban groove at the base, but really ... CD
Smooth As The Wind
Riverside/OJC, 1961. Used
A slightly different record than usual for Blue – not as down-n-dirty and funky, but more "smooth as the wind" – with Blue blowing solos over larger arrangements by Tadd Dameron and Benny Golson, a small string group mixed with jazz and horn backings. Given the hipness of the ... CD
Happy Time
Jazzland/OJC, 1962. Used
There's nothing hokey about this one – despite a "happy time" title that might make you think so – as the album's one of the first great statements from pianist Junior Mance, a player who was really coming into his own at the time! Rhythm here is by the team of Ron Carter on ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1975. Used
A great American set from Dexter Gordon – recorded at a time when most of his bigger records were coming from overseas! The set's got some nice long tracks that really let Gordon open up on tenor – on those well-blown, longform solo modes he was really cracking in the European scene ... CD
Tjader Plays Mambo
Fantasy/OJC, 1954/1956. Used
Classic 50s west coast Latin grooves – played by Cal Tjader and a tasty Bay Area combo that includes Benny Velarde on timbales and conga, Manuel Duran on piano, and Carlos Duran on bass! The tracks are short, but have a tight group feel – really driving in a nicely rhythmic mode, with ... CD
Mambo With Tjader
Fantasy/OJC, 1954. Used
Early Latin from the great Cal Tjader – proof that he had a wonderful ear for this sort of a groove, even when he was just getting started! The album's a killer batch of jazzy mambos all the way through – served up with hard-edged vibes from Cal, all nicely chromatic in tone – ... CD
Pablo/OJC, 1975. Used
Way more than just a Gershwin Songbook sort of record – thanks to some tremendous blowing here by Zoot Sims, who's mellowed nicely with age, and comes up with a wonderful sound for the record! It may just be us, but there seems to be a lot more soul in Zoot's horn than ever before – ... CD
Journey To The One
Evidence, 1980. Used
A later album by Pharoah, but one of his best! The record is a very tight set of tracks that includes the amazing jazz dance anthem "You've Got to Have Freedom", a killer groover that will stay in your head for days after you've heard it! The rest of the material's equally great, and ... CD
So What
Blue Note, 1983. Used
A great return to form for George Russell – given lots of creative freedom by the revived Blue Note label of the 80s! Titles include "Time Spiral", "So What", "Rhymes", and "War Gewesen". CD
