Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

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.

Ten Gallon Shuffle
Ascent, 1984. Near Mint-
A hokey title and cover, but a great little record – a lesser-known gem from the Toshiko Akioshi big band, recorded in the mid 80s for Japanese release! Toshiko's still working strongly with reedman Lew Tabackin here – and as always, the sound of the reeds really make the record – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Ode To Duke Ellington
Inner City, 1978. Near Mint-
A warm solo piano tribute to Duke Ellington – kind of a nice "back atcha" effort from Dollar Brand, given that Duke was one of his big champions in the early years of his career! The style here is quite far from Ellingtons, even though Brand plays a few of Duke's compositions ... LP, Vinyl record album
Through The Listening Glass
Inner City, 1978. Very Good Gatefold
Groovy sounds from the team of David Friesen and John Stowell – mostly acoustic lines from the two string-based players, but with some other odd bits as well – and both soprano and tenor sax from Gary Campbell! The album's got a bit more bite than other albums by the pair – ... LP, Vinyl record album

East West/Inner City, 1979. Near Mint-
One of Andrew Hill's best records of the 70s – a soulful trio recording performed with Richard Davis on bass and Roger Blank on drums – and a real return to the glory of his 60s material! Hill's piano still has that fresh angular modern approach of his Blue Note sides – but the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dark To Themselves
Inner City, 1976. Very Good+
One of Cecil Taylor's most spiritual sessions of the 70s – a live set recorded in Yugoslavia in 1976, and done with this really open sound, but one that comes as much from the horns as it does from Cecil's piano! In fact, we might well say that the horns are the best attraction here – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Steeplechase/Inner City, 1976. Near Mint-
One of Jackie McLean's beautiful recordings for Steeplechase from the early 70's – a real return to basics that helped form the groundwork for his soulful playing of later years! This set features two long compositions by Billy Gault, the magical young pianist who graced some of McLean's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Julian
Inner City, 1975. Near Mint-
A great quartet date – nice and laidback, with plenty of room for Pepper Adams to open up on his deep-toned baritone sax! The group features Walter Norris on piano – and titles include "Ad Astra", "Jirge", "Spacemaker", and "Three & One". LP, Vinyl record album

Ode To Super
Inner City, 1973/1976. Very Good
A great meeting of these two alto giants – and a wonderfully soulful session that matches Gary Bartz's own great work from the same time! The overall feel of the session is quite spiritual – as Bartz and McLean seem to egg each other on, into far-reaching lines and freespirited grooves ... LP, Vinyl record album
Third Cup
Cadet, 1969. Good+
An amazing album by the great guitarist Eddie Fisher – and completely unlike his later funk records! Eddie plays stripped down jazz with a small combo that includes organ by Robert Selby, bass by Paul Jackson, and some rhythm guitar by Phil Westmoreland – and the twin-guitar approach ...
