Serenade To A Bus Seat

CD (Item 501071) Riverside/OJC, 1957 — Condition: Used
$6.99 ...

CD

A great early date as a leader from trumpeter Clark Terry – one cut during the stretch when he was keeping company with players like Thelonious Monk and Johnny Griffin! The latter player is a key member of Terry's group here – as Johnny's tenor adds a nice sharp edge to Clark's trumpet – mixing modern and bop inflections wonderfully in a solid quintet setting that also features Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums. Titles include "Serenade To A Bus Seat", "That Old Black Magic", "Cruising", "Boardwalk", "Boomerang", and "Digits".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

Clark Terry

Top & Bottom Brass
Riverside/OJC, 1960. Used
Clark Terry's breezy trumpet is paired with Don Butterfield's tuba for a real "top and bottom" session of brassy jazz. The two of them are backed by a sharp rhythm section that includes Jimmy Jones on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Art Taylor on drums. The set's got a lot of nice ... CD
Impulse, 1965/1967. Used
Clark Terry in two modes – both recorded for Impulse Records in the 60s! The Happy Horns is a really great little album – one that really gets at the bright, joyous feel that Clark Terry brings to his music! Despite the "happy" in the title – which might make you think ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1957. Used
Hmmm . . . Don't know what the "difference" is here, given that the set was one of a number of Duke-inspired sessions of the late 50s, but given that Terry was a big force in the best ones, and that he's working here with some of Duke's best players, we'll give the set a thumbs up! The ... CD

Gene Ammons

Late Hour Special
Prestige/OJC, 1964. Used
Very nice album by Jug that often gets overlooked because it's comprised of 2 different sessions, and can't get the "historical" writeup of being a single significant moment in the studio. Some tracks – including "Lascivious" and "Soft Winds" – are with a ... CD

Paul Quinichette

For Basie
Prestige/OJC, 1957. Used
Basie tribute by Basie alum playing tunes from the Count's book, this hard swinging side exemplifies the earlier swing orientation of the Prestige label, before they moved into other realms of soul jazz, bop and avant garde. Long tracks, with strong solos. CD

George Wallington

Jazz For The Carriage Trade
Prestige/OJC, 1956. Used
Sublime work from pianist George Wallington – and one of his best albums ever! The set's also one of the few he ever recorded as a leader outside the trio format, and has him working with a very hip quintet that features Phil Woods, Donald Byrd, Teddy Kotick, and Art Taylor – all ... CD

Barney Kessel

Feeling Free
Contemporary/OJC, 1969. Used
Easily one of Barney Kessel's greatest records – done with a really surprising quartet lineup that includes Bobby Hutcherson on vibes, Chuck Domanico on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums! The group's far hipper than Kessel, but that also really drives him to keep up with them – forging ... CD
Contemporary/OJC, 1960. Used
Andre Previn on piano. CD

Johnny Griffin

Best Of Johnny Griffin
Riverside, Late 50s/1960s/1970s. Used
Featuring Thelonious Monk, Roy Haynes, Eddie Lockjaw Davis, Paul Chambers, Jimmy Cobb & more. CD
Riverside/OJC, 1957. Used
Classic early work from Kenny Dorham as a leader – a brilliant set that sparkles with modern touches! The group's a quartet that pairs Kenny's trumpet with the alto sax of the late Ernie Henry – a perfect accompanist that brings out both the brightness in Kenny's horn, and the edgier ... CD

Thelonious Monk

Thelonious Himself
Riverside/OJC, 1957. Used
A classic outing of solo piano by Thelonious Monk – a format that wasn't used often, but which always made for some really compelling work! Monk in this mode is often different than the bolder leader of a trio or larger group – and there's a more introspective quality to the record ... CD

Marcus Printup

Nocturnal Traces
Blue Note, 1998. Used
Features Marcus Printup on trumpet, Kevin Bales on piano, Ricky Ravelo on bass, and Woody Williams on drums. CD
