New Chautauqua

LP (Item 495719) ECM, 1979 — Condition: Near Mint-
Also available
Pat Metheny — New Chautauqua ... CD 8.99

A completely solo album from Pat Metheny – but one that still sparkles with the same sort of energy as his fuller group sessions for ECM! At a point when Pat could be content to simply scrawl a few simple lines on the strings of his guitar, he instead does a great job of complicating things here – working with a bit of overdub to explode in fuller sounds that are totally great – played on acoustic and electric guitars, including 6, 12, and 15 stringed versions – as well as a bit of bass. Titles include "Hermitage", "Daybreak", "Sueno Con Mexico", "New Chautauqua", and "Country Poem".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(US pressing. Cover has light wear.)

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.

Pat Metheny

American Garage
ECM, 1979. Near Mint-
A brilliantly evocative album from Pat Metheny – one that's got a quietly epic feel, as Pat and group soar out across the American landscape in a set of tunes that subtly explore space and sound while still remaining wonderfully fluid. There's nothing forced here, and nothing too slick ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pat Metheny

First Circle
ECM, 1984. Near Mint-
Arguably the last great album to come from the classic Pat Metheny collaboration with Lyle Mays – a record that's tightened up considerably from some of the group's earlier efforts, but which gives as its reward some wonderfully compelling tunes! Pat's still very much influenced here by a ... LP, Vinyl record album
ECM, 1980. Very Good+
Some of Jarrett's most hypnotic music – a set of hymns originally written by the spiritualist GI Gurdjieff! LP, Vinyl record album


Paris Concert
ECM, 1971. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
An essential 2LP set that's just about the only vinyl release you can find that documents the work of the legendary (and short-lived) Circle group – an important avant jazz combo that featured Anthony Braxton, Chick Corea, Dave Holland, and Barry Altschul. The record captures a Parisian ... LP, Vinyl record album
ECM, 1978. Near Mint-
To us, this recording represents what was great about ECM in the mid 70s, searching improvised grooves that cross the lines between free playing, textural tone bending, ethnic influences and modern fusion, but without getting too new-agey. Om were a quartet of European improvisers, many of whom ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eberhard Weber

Fluid Rustle
ECM, 1979. Near Mint-
With Norma Winstone on vocals, Gary Burton on vibes, and Bil Frisell on guitar! Titles include "Quiet Departures", "Fluid Rustle", and "A Pale Smile". LP, Vinyl record album

Eberhard Weber

Following Morning
ECM, 1976. Near Mint-
The basshapes of Eberhard Weber are already great enough in a spare, stripped-down ECM setting – but here, they get great exposure amidst some even more compelling tonal landscapes – as Weber works with strong solo piano from Rainer Bruninghaus, and rich sounds on celli, oboe, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Miroslav Vitous Group

Miroslav Vitous Group
ECM, 1981. Near Mint-
A real classic from bassist Miroslav Vitous – and a record that sets up his sound with a great combination of warm tones and sharp edges! Vitous plays a deep-voiced acoustic bass all the way through – and gets some excellent accompaniment from pianist Kenny Kirkland, who adds in some ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ralph Towner & Gary Burton

Slide Show
ECM, 1986. Sealed
Beautiful duet recordings with Ralph Towner on classical and 12-string guitar, and Gary Burton on vibes and marimba! Titles include the standard "Blue In Green" – all other tracks are originals by Towner. LP, Vinyl record album

Terje Rypdal

What Comes After
ECM, 1974. Near Mint-
A key album in bringing the guitar sound of Terje Rypdal to a larger audience – a wonderfully fluid electric set that opens up his sound, while still keeping all the edge from his early days! There's few players like Rypdal on the strings, and that's definitely the case here – as the ... LP, Vinyl record album
ECM, 1973. Sealed
Essentially an Oregon record – given that the set also features oboe from Paul McCandless and tabla from Collin Walcott. LP, Vinyl record album
