LP (Item 49577) Kudu, 1973 — Condition: Very Good+

One of the most successful albums ever from guitarist Eric Gale – a laidback understated player whose mellow sound had a tremendous influence on mainstream jazz funk in the 70s! The album takes off from the late 60s CTI and Verve sessions by Wes Montgomery – and features Gale riffing out chromatically over tightly woven arrangements by Bob James, who also plays keyboards on the set. There's no standout funky numbers on the record, but it's got a great conception overall – with lots of dreamy grooves that sound very nice! Titles include "Forecast", "Tonsue Corte", "White Moth", "Cleopatra", and "Dindi".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a split on the top seam and light wear.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Touch Of Silk
Columbia, 1980. Near Mint-
Smooth as silk, with plenty of soul – a classic set that has the guitar of Eric Gale produced by the legendary Allen Toussaint!

Eric Gale

Ginseng Woman
Columbia, 1977. Very Good
A wonderfully strong effort from guitarist Eric Gale – a player who'd done countless studio work on fusion sessions in the 70s, but who never really broke that strongly as a leader until this set! Gale's tone here is nicely compressed, but still has a warmth that comes from his use of a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mister Magic
Kudu, 1974. Very Good+
Pure dark magic from Grover Washington – a record that was a megahit back in the 70s, but which still sounds amazing many decades later!

Fire Into Music
CTI/Kudu/Salvation, Early 70s. Near Mint-

Grant Green

Main Attraction
Kudu, 1976. Very Good+
Quite an unusual album from Grant Green – a record that's quite different than his earlier records for Blue Note, but still pretty darn great overall!

Nolan-Buddle Quartet

Odd Couple
M7 (Australia), 1976. Very Good
Quartet album featuring Australian jazz legends Col Nolan and Errol Buddle, plus the drumming of Warren Daly, from the Daly-Wilson Big Band.

Pacific Jazz, 1954. Very Good
Original 10" LP featuring the great alto player amidst a lineup that includes 3 west coast trombonists, and a west coast rhythm section with Claude Williamson, Joe Mondragon, and Shelly Manne.

Yusef Lateef

Centaur & The Phoenix
Riverside, 1960. Very Good
An ambitious larger group album from Yusef Lateef – and one that's carried off with all the genius of his smaller group sessions from the time!

Ahmad Jamal

Ahmad Jamal '73
20th Century, 1973. Very Good
Amazing stuff from Ahmad Jamal – one of his greatest albums ever, and the kind of Fender Rhodes classic that got passed over in the history books, but which is finally getting some appreciation these days! Ahamad's in a very different mode than his Cadet/Argo years – using the mellow ... LP, Vinyl record album

Woody Shaw

In The Beginning
Muse, 1965/1983. Near Mint-
Fantastic early work by Woody Shaw – an album originally recorded in 1965, when Shaw was part of a core soul jazz underground that was slowly forming an answer to the "new thing" movement of the mid 60s. The session was self-produced – and not only features some killer ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, 1961. Very Good
Searing live work from Eric Dolphy – part of a series of recordings that set a whole new standard for live jazz recording!

Realization
Capricorn, 1973. Very Good
Nice laidback spiritual funky tunes, played by Eddie on trumpet with a group that includes Herbie Hancock, Bennie Maupin, Lenny White, Billy Hart, Buster Williams, and Pat Gleeson on cool Arp and Moog. The tracks are long, with a nice spacey groove, and the titles include "Spiritual ... LP, Vinyl record album
