One September Afternoon

LP (Item 501018) Galaxy, 1980 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

4.50 5

A nice little record from Art Pepper – and one with a slightly different feel than some of his other sets from the time! There's almost an undercurrent of soul going on here – a groove that comes from warm piano parts by Stanley Cowell and great guitar from Howard Roberts, who plays on a few cuts – and also a tighter focus overall on the group's sound – different than some of the Pepper records on which Art is spinning out longer solos. Other group members include Cecil McBee on bass and Carl Burnett on drums – and titles include "Mr Big Falls His JG Hand", "Brazil", "Melolev", "There Will Never Be Another YOu", and "Close To You Alone". (Cover has a sticker spot and a bit of pencil on back.)  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Art Pepper + Eleven
Contemporary, 1959. Very Good
A unique large group session from Art Pepper – one of his few this way as a leader, despite constant 50s presence as a sideman in big ensembles!

Blue Note, Early 60s. Very Good
Classic work from Jimmy Smith – a smokin' quartet session from the early 60's, one that sports a rare appearance by Percy France on tenor on most of the tracks! France has a great raw sound that gives the session a nice little edge – and the rest of the group features Kenny Burrell on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pacific Jazz, 1956. Good+
Goofy cover, but like Shank's various reed projects, it works pretty well. Bob Cooper conducts a small string section, and joins Shank – who's playing flute– on Oboe. Howard Roberts' guitar jazzes the thing up a bit, as the band bounces through 9 tracks, including "Gypsy In My ... LP, Vinyl record album

After Ahmad spent the 60s playing mellow acoustic piano, he turned into a great jazz artist on the Fender Rhodes – and this album is one of the best he ever made in that genre. The record has some great orchestrations by Richard Evans, and Ahmad's tone is very rich and full, with a great ... LP, Vinyl record album
