Previously Unreleased Recordings

LP (Item 508169) Verve, Mid 60s — Condition: Near Mint-

(Cover has a small cutout notch.)

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.

Wes Montgomery

Just Walkin'
Verve, 1965/1966. Very Good+
An assortment of material that Wes Montgomery recorded for Verve before his too-early death – which the label then collected together as a surprisingly good posthumous release for Wes! There's a really great feel to the record – a mix of small combo and large group settings that offers ... LP, Vinyl record album

Oscar Peterson

West Side Story
Verve, 1962. Very Good
The West Side Story score – but handled here by the great Oscar Peterson Trio – in ways that really push the tunes past their Broadway roots! The approach is tight, soulful, and filled with strong lines from Peterson on piano – plus bass by Ray Brown and drums from Ed Thigpen ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1957. Very Good
A strange pairing – but that's sometimes what makes these Verve "pro meets pro" sets from the 50s so great. Getz and Johnson are backed by Oscar Peterson, Ray Brown, Herb Ellis, and Connie Kay – and the tracks are longish, with plenty of solo room in the open jam session mode ... LP, Vinyl record album

Buddy Bregman

Dig Buddy In Hi Fi
Verve, Late 50s. Very Good
Great work by a leader who hardly ever got to record on his own – the always-swinging Buddy Bregman, known best for his late 50s backings for singers on the west coast, but heard here in 2 great sessions cut under his own name! Dig Buddy In Hi Fi – a session that's a bit less jazz ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lester Young

Pres & His Cabinet
Verve, Mid 50s. Very Good+
Small group material from Lester Youn sessions of the 50s for Verve – with additional solo work from Harry Edison on trumpet, Oscar Peterson and Hank Jones on piano, and Barney Kessel and Herb Ellis on guitar! LP, Vinyl record album

Jazz At The Philharmonic All-Stars

JATP All-Stars At The Opera House
Verve, 1957. Near Mint-
Great long jam session work, very heavy on tenor sax – with appearances by Stan Getz, Lester Young, Coleman Hawkins, Illinois Jacquet, and Flip Phillips – plus Sonny Stitt on alto! Tracks are nice and long – and titles include "Stuffy", "Merry Go Round", and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gerry Mulligan

Concert Jazz Band
Verve, 1960. Very Good+
Great large group material from Gerry Mulligan – and a record that definitely defines the sound of his famous Concert Jazz Band of the early 60s! The group features a four part sax section – headed by Mulligan, with other players that include Zoot Sims on tenor, Gene Allen on baritone, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gene Krupa

Drummer Man
Verve, 1956. Near Mint-
Kind of a reprise of earlier days – one that reunites Krupa with Anita O'Day and Roy Eldridge, as the group runs through some material from earlier years. Arrangements are by Quincy Jones, Billy Byers, and Nat Pierce – and the set actually swings more cleanly than some of Krupa's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stan Getz & Gerry Mulligan

Getz Meets Mulligan In Hi Fi
Verve, 1958. Near Mint-
The tenor of Stan Getz meets the baritone sax of Gerry Mulligan – and then they switch things around for half of the record, as Stan picks up the baritone and Mulligan takes on tenor! Gerry always seems to open up whole new sides of his playing when sharing the leader spotlight with another ... LP, Vinyl record album

Grachan Moncur III

New Africa
BYG/Actuel (France), 1969. Very Good Gatefold
Excellent work from trombonist Grachan Moncur III – famous for his 60s work on Blue Note and with Archie Shepp, sounding as great here as he did on those recordings! The session features Moncur hitting an Archie Shepp-ish, spiritual vein in his playing – recorded in Paris with a group ... LP, Vinyl record album

Roy Ayers

Virgo Vibes
Atlantic, 1967. Very Good
A far-reaching early gem from Roy Ayers – a set that's much more jazz-based than his later work, and a record that has him touching base with the Blue Note and Strata East sides of the jazz spectrum! The lineup here is incredibly hip – a mix of players that includes a young Charles ... LP, Vinyl record album
