This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap.
We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't
look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time,
we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape —
which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be
torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played,
the record will still qualify as "Sealed".
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.
The perfect recipe for a "with strings" session – as Ben blows low and soulfully, over arrangements by Ralph Burns that have a slightly dark edge to them. Tracks include "Chelsea Bridge", "Early Autumn", "Willow Weep For Me", "My Greatest ... LP, Vinyl record album
A very cool late album from tenor giant Ben Webster – one that features arrangements by the excellent Stan Tracey and production by reedman Pete King – with a British rhythm section that features Stan Tracey on piano, Dave Green on bass, and Tony Crombie on drums! The group also ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great late date from Ben Webster – one that has the tenorist working with a Dutch rhythm section that features Cees Slinger on piano, Jacques Schols on bass, and John Engels on drums – stretching out nicely on long tracks that include "Prelude To A Kiss", "Drop Me Off ... LP, Vinyl record album
A rare gem from Ben Webster! The album was recorded in Europe by Alan Bates during the 60s – and most of the set features Webster blowing with small combo backing by Kenny Drew, Niels Henning Orsted Pederson, and Alex Riel. Other tracks have him as the main soloist with the Arnved Meyer ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of the all-time great ones by Ben Webster! The album was recorded near the end of Webster's all-too-short time on this planet – at a point when he had really perfected a sorrowful tone on tenor, and a strangely sinister approach to ballads – one that gave even familiar tunes an ...

Ben Webster and ballads – what more could you want? This nice 2LP set brings together some fantastic Webster work from his mid 50s years at Verve – featuring larger arrangements by Ralph Burns and Billy Strayhorn, plus small group playing with Teddy Wilson. At face value, the set is ... LP, Vinyl record album
A legendary album from alto genius Art Pepper – a set in which he meets up with the famous Miles Davis rhythm section of the time – Red Garland on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums – a trio of players who really help send the album over the top! There's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Classic west coast soul jazz – recorded in 2 different sessions in the mid 50s, both under the leadership of bassist Curtis Counce, but not issued until 1989. The first bunch of tracks was recorded in 1956, and features Jack Sheldon, Harold Land, and Carl Perkins – on the tracks "S ... LP, Vinyl record album
Well, if you've ever heard Barney play guitar, you know that he doesn't always cook – or at least not as hotly as other players – but this album is a nice batch of tracks that goes way beyond Kessel's usual uptight sound. Most of the cuts are very long, and they feature open-ended jam ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of our favorite albums by Teddy Edwards – and one with some organ in the group! This obscure quartet side has Gerry Wiggins playing a rare bit of Hammond – grooving the group with a lean and open-ended soul jazz approach that really has Edwards blowing at his best! The style sits ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cecil Taylor's definitely Looking Ahead here – pushing jazz piano very strongly into the 60s with his modernist tones – yet still working with a bit more restraint than in the next decade! The style here is quite unusual – and almost more fresh than the Taylor sound of later ... LP, Vinyl record album
A nicely lean take on the music of West Side Story – done during part of a big late 50s wave of jazz-meets-Broadway albums – and served up by a group who often approached the material better than most! In previous years, Andre Previn could be more of a softer, mood-oriented pianist ... LP, Vinyl record album
