Great New Gene Krupa Quartet Featuring Charlie Ventura

LP (Item 507715) Verve, 1964 — Condition: Near Mint-

With Charlie Ventura on tenor, Nabil Totah on bass, and John Bunch on piano – and cuts that include "Undecided", "Tickle Toe", "I Love You", "Misty", "Flying Home", and "Cry Me A River".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light wear.)

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.

Gene Krupa

Krupa Rocks
Verve, Mid 50s. Very Good+
An unusual album from Gene Krupa – not a rockish set, or even an R&B-tinged one – but a nice small combo set that features clarinet from the obscure Gail Curtis – a player with a lean, swinging sound that gives the record the feel of some of the Buddy DeFranco dates for Verve ...

Getz/Gilberto
Verve, 1963. Near Mint-
A landmark record – both in 60s jazz and bossa nova – and a set that not only bridged worlds of music, but set the tone for so many other albums to come!

An overlooked gem from the Verve bossa years – a session that features the sweet tenor sax work of Stan Getz, alongside some swinging bossa arrangements from the great Gary McFarland!
