Last Set At Newport

LP (Item 495721) Atlantic, 1972 — Condition: Very Good
Also available
Dave Brubeck with Gerry Mulligan — Last Set At Newport ... CD 6.99

A rare meeting of 2 modern talents from the 50s – joined together in one unique performance from the Newport Jazz Festival in 1971! The baritone sax of Gerry Mulligan's a nice contrast to the usual Brubeck alto of Paul Desmond – long-departed from Dave's combo by this time, but referenced strongly by Gerry in his fluid lines for the set, almost a solo culmination here of previous recorded duets with Desmond in earlier years. Tracks are all quite longish, and given that Dave's group here features Jack Six on bass and Alan Dawson on drums, there's a quality to the session that's a fait bit more rhythmic than before – pulsating strongly with forceful lines on Brubeck's piano, and an overall feel that's much more freewheeling than you'd expect! Album features 3 long tunes – "Blues For Newport", "Open The Gates", and "Take Five".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Atlantic, 1970. Near Mint-
One of the best of Yusef's Atlantic recordings, and one that offers a mix of his 2 different sides – his older spiritualist one, and his newer funkier one. Includes the tight groover "Live Humble", with nice conga work by Ray Barretto, plus the extended "Chandra" and ... LP, Vinyl record album

All The Things We Are
Atlantic, 1976. Near Mint-
One of the best Dave Brubeck albums from later years – and one of the hippest!

Don Pullen

Montreux Concert
Atlantic, 1978. Near Mint-
One of Don Pullen's best-known albums, and for good reason too – a well-recorded document of a Montreux performance that helped put Don's piano talents in the spotlight for the rest of the 70s! The record's got a sense of freedom that's quite unusual for Atlantic Records at the time – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1958. Good
David Newman's first album as a leader – recorded under the Ray Charles banner, and featuring Ray himself on piano! The set's a really surprising one – as it's much more jazz-based than we'd expect, given the Charles connection – and really steps out with some lively solo work ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1977. Very Good+
A sweet little disco set from Herbie Mann – recorded in collaboration with the Fire Island soul vocal trio! The group's got a sound that's kind of compelling – not as sweet or smooth as some of the other disco trios of the time, and with an approach that almost has the voices moving in ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1966. Very Good
Herbie Mann got a standing ovation for this performance – at least if the title is to be believed – and considering the grooves on the set, it was all for very good reason! The album's one of the few to feature Mann in the company of pianist Chick Corea – who steps out here with ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, Late 50s/Early 60s. Very Good+
A great complement to the classic Atlantic albums by Coltrane – material recorded during the same stretch, but never issued at the time!

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! Hamilton's one of those players who has an amazing range to his music – almost all of it really incredible, as Chico always shifts things up over time – continually ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 1960s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Very nice 2LP set that collects some of Herbie's best 60s work for Blue Note – and which moves past the hits to feature some nice gems from hard to find albums. This work is a beautiful mix of tight soul jazz and freer modal playing – and nearly every track's a perfect example of why ... LP, Vinyl record album
