Blues For A Reason

LP (Item 506934) Criss Cross (Holland), 1984 — Condition: Near Mint-
Also available
Chet Baker with Warne Marsh — Blues For A Reason (180 gram pressing – with bonus track) ... LP 23.99
A real standout set in the later years of trumpet legend Chet Baker – in part because the record features some wonderful tenor work from the equally legendary Warne Marsh! Marsh at this point in his career has really developed a subtle edge – this slight current of darkness that wasn't there at the start, and which works well next to the moody qualities that Baker developed in his final years too. Equally wonderful is the piano of Hod O'Brien – a great and overlooked musician, and one who has this almost broken-down quality that really fits the emotive energy of the date. Other players include Eddie Gladden on drums and Cecil McBee on bass – the latter of whom is a bit of a surprise on such a session – on titles that include "Imagination", "We Know It's Love", "Well Spoken", "Blues For A reason", and "Looking Good Tonight".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

Buddy Rich

Roar Of '74
Groove Merchant, 1973. Near Mint-
One of the funkiest Buddy Rich albums of the 70s – a mad screaming affair that's overflowing with great tunes! The band on the set is very full – with a heck of a lot of trumpets in the brass section, set next to searing sax work by the great Pat LaBarbera. But even better is the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Madison Beat
Harmony, Early 60s. Very Good+
This was a follow-up to the hit Ray Bryant record, "Madison Time", and although it's an obvious attempt to cover it, it's also released by the same label (Columbia) that put out the Bryant version.

George Shearing

Velvet Carpet
Capitol, 1956. Near Mint-
A key Capitol Records classic from the legendary George Shearing!

George Shearing

Latin Affair
Capitol, 1958. Near Mint-
Wonderful exotic work from George Shearing – a mixture of jazz piano, Latin percussion, and lyrical guitar and vibes – all intertwined beautifully in that unique groove that really set new standards at the time!

Heavy-duty funky fusion – an all-star group that featured Alphonse Mouzon on drums, Randy Brecker on trumpet, Mike Mandel on keyboards, and Larry Coryell on guitar.

Harvey Mandel

Shangrenade
Janus, 1973. Near Mint-
A bit slicker than some of Harvey's earlier albums – but in a good way! The set's got some weirdly compressed guitar funk – sounding like it's been pressed through a play-do machine, shaped and twisted in weirdly stretched ways that make the sound of the strings sound all weird and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Shelter, 1974. Near Mint-
Very early stuff from The Gap Band, and a record that's got a very different feel from their early 80s hit LPs. The basic sound is sort of a basic 70s funk one, with touches of some slight rock influences from time to time. The best cut on the record is the classic breakbeat track "I-Yike-It& ...
