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".  © 1996-2016, 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.

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!

Galaxy, 1979. Near Mint-
A nice set of mellow tracks from Art's late 70's comeback period, featuring George Cables on piano, Charlie Haden on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums. This is some of Art's best work of the time, and it's mostly free of the "fire" that marred some of his other sessions from the time. ... LP, Vinyl record album

20th Century, 1974. Very Good
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
