McCoy Tyner Plays Ellington

LP (Item 50035) Impulse, 1964 — Condition: Very Good-
Gatefold
Also available
McCoy Tyner — McCoy Tyner Plays Ellington (SHMCD pressing) ... CD 14.99
McCoy Tyner plays Duke Ellington, with surprisingly great results – thanks to an expanded trio format that features lots of additional percussion! McCoy's on piano, working alongside Coltrane bandmates Jimmy Garrison on bass and Elvin Jones on drums – but the real charm of the record comes from Willie Rodriguez and Johnny Pacheco, who add in extra percussion to most numbers, and really complicate the rhythms nicely! The tracks are way more than simple Ellington tribute numbers, and the fresher rhythms really liven things up tremendously – giving the record a soulful swing that we wouldn't expect from either Tyner or Duke! Titles include "Mr Gentle & Mr Cool", "Gypsy Without A Song", "Duke's Place", "Caravan", and "Searchin".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Stereo Orange and black label pressing with Van Gelder stamp. Vinyl plays with a click on the first two tracks on side 2. Cover is great!)

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Time For Tyner
Blue Note, 1969. Near Mint-

McCoy Tyner

Tender Moments
Blue Note, 1967. Near Mint-

Expansions
Blue Note, 1969. Near Mint-

Keith Jarrett

Bop-Be
Impulse, 1978. Near Mint-
No bebop here, despite what you might guess from the title – and instead an album of much freer lines and wider musical vision, captured with Keith Jarrett's famous group of the 70s! Jarrett plays a bit of soprano sax alongside his piano, and the rest of the quartet features Dewey Redman on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Impulse, 1962. Near Mint- Gatefold
Stripped-down Count Basie from the start of the 60s – a great little set that has the Count working with some of the best players from his larger group, in a session of even more intimate small combo material! The sounds here echo the Basie groove of the earlier years, but the overall ... LP, Vinyl record album
Impulse, 1962. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
2 great 60s sessions from Duke Ellington – both with a key tenorist!

The approach ... LP, Vinyl record album

Best Of Gabor Szabo
Impulse, Late 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold

Szabo first rose to fame working with Chico Hamilton – but soon established himself as one ... LP, Vinyl record album
Impulse, 1964. Near Mint- Gatefold
A nice little 60s album by Johnny Hodges – one of the few post-Verve sessions that has him still playing in the hard swinging Ellingtonia small combo mode of the 50s! Players are all strong – and include Jimmy Jones, Cat Anderson, Ray Nance, Harry Carney, and Paul Gonsalves – and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ahmad Jamal

Freeflight
Impulse, 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold
Brilliant work by Jamal – and one of his first albums to feature electric piano! The mode of the tracks is in that "stretching out" style he was using as the 60s came to a close – a bit inspired by McCoy Tyner, but more an exploration of the lyricism of his earlier work, set ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pee Wee Russell

Ask Me Now!
Impulse, 1965. Near Mint- Gatefold
A record that will blow your mind – way different than you might expect from the cover! Sure, Pee Wee was a bit of a traditionalist on his instrument – the clarinet – but he's working here in a starkly modern way that almost recalls some of the best 50s work of Jimmy Guiffre, or ...
