then checkout as usual.
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.
Very cool work from Fred Katz – one of his sublime solo albums away from Chico Hamilton, done with help from Johnny Pisano on guitar, Gene Estes on bass, Pete Candoli and Don Fagerquist on trumpet, and Billy Higgins on drums. LP, Vinyl record album
A wild one! The set features a strange collage of sounds, songs, effects, and a slight bit of jazz – composed by John Benson Brooks, who'd done some earlier modernist work for Riverside in the early 60s, but who here is working in a mode that's sort of to jazz what structural film of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of the best of Decca's Jazz Studio series of recording – a tight set of chamber jazz tracks headed by John Graas, and featuring a strong assortment of players that includes Charlie Mariano, Zoot Sims, Larry Bunker, Gerry Mulligan, Howard Roberts, and Conte Candoli. Tracks get a little ... LP, Vinyl record album
A rare session as a leader by trumpeter Jack Millman – one that's based around his own compositions, and which a large group of west coast players alongside some lesser-known 50s talents! Players include Fred Aguirre, Lin Halliday, Artie Anto, Mike Pacheco, Curtis Counce, Herb Geller, Jimmy ... LP, Vinyl record album
A dark suite of tracks dedicated to New York after hours – played by the wonderful Ellis Larkins, a vastly-overlooked 50s pianist who was always great at moody sessions like these! Most of the tunes are familiar ones – "Manhattan Serenade", "Lullaby Of Birdland", ... LP, Vinyl record album
A landmark blend of soul jazz and bossa nova – cut by the legendary Quartette Tres Bien back in the 60s! The group are kind of a "piano trio plus" – an outfit with piano, bass, and drums in the lead – but also plenty of conga and added percussion – a style used ... LP, Vinyl record album
A classic Blue Note meeting of two of the label's top talents in the early 60s – Hammond hero Jimmy Smith, and the up-and-rising Stanley Turrentine on tenor! Turrentine's simply great at this point – playing with a raspy edge on the bottom of his tone, sounding dark and mysterious ... LP, Vinyl record album
A more laidback set than usual from Ammons' early 70s stretch on Prestige – but a record that nicely gets back to that big-toned tenor sound he used often on ballads from earlier years! The combo mixes both electric piano and organ – the former from Hank Jones, the latter from Ernie ... LP, Vinyl record album
