Lonnie Liston Smith & The Cosmic Echoes — Expansions (180 gram pressing) ... LP 22.99

Quite possibly the most celebrated album ever from keyboardist Lonnie Liston Smith – a groove-heavy classic that's burned up many a dancefloor in its day, yet also a record that features some great mellow moments as well! The title track "Expansions" is virtually a blueprint for the migration of the cosmic jazz sound onto the dancefloor – a tune that's as funky as it is righteous – but other cuts on the album slow down the pace a bit too, and show off the mellower, more introspectively spiritual side that's always made Lonnie way more than just a funky jazz artist. Easily the best place to start in the all-great Lonnie Liston Smith catalog – and featuring tracks that include "Expansions", "Summer Days", "Desert Nights", "Shadows", "My Love", "Peace", and "Voodoo Woman".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Flying Dutchman, 1970. Very Good Gatefold
One of the most compelling albums we've ever heard from Ornette Coleman – and a set that's very different than some of his other work for different labels – particularly his better-known material for Blue Note and Atlantic! The album's got a righteous feel that's right up there in the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cecil Taylor

In Florescence
A&M, 1990. Very Good+
An unusual appearance on a major label for Cecil Taylor – recorded during a brief bit of optimism in A&M's jazz department! Despite the setting, though, the record's a great one – played with all the fire and dynamism of some of Taylor's indie work from the same stretch – and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1961. Near Mint-
While actually not as electrifying as some of Dizzy's other albums from the time, this one's still pretty darn great, and features his great group with Leo Wright on alto and Lalo Schfrin on piano. The band grooves with a subtly Latinish vibe, and the tracks are nice and long long long. Titles ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eugen Cicero

Swinging Tschaikowsky
Saba (Germany), 1966. Near Mint- Gatefold
The early work of Austrian pianist Eugene Cicero must have been incredibly successful for the MPS/Saba label – as they cut more than a few albums that had him in this format, playing jazzy changes based on classical material by a specific composer! This set, like the others, features Cicero ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Coltrane

My Favorite Things
Atlantic, 1961. Very Good
Wonderful wonderful wonderful work from the legendary John Coltrane – and even though it's probably one of his best-selling albums of all time, it's still a treasure – and has an essential place in just about any jazz collection! We've heard the original title version of "My ... LP, Vinyl record album

Roy Haynes

Thank You Thank You
Galaxy, 1977. Near Mint-
Roy Haynes was always a winner, even on a sleeper session like this one from 1977, recorded for Fantasy's Galaxy subsidiary.

MGM, 1972. Near Mint-
Some of the warmest Memphis soul ever recorded – a really classic set from The Ovations, done in a style that's really unique! The vibe here is different from the sound of Stax, as lead singer Louis Williams has a lot of Sam Cooke in his style – a warmly bubbling quality that's as ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jack Costanzo

Latin Fever
Liberty, Late 50s. Very Good+
One of the greatest albums of Latin Jazz ever recorded on the west coast during the 50s – and a landmark session from Jack "Mr Bongo" Costanzo! The album well earns its "fever" claim – as the set smokes from the very first note – Jack's bongos calling the pace ... LP, Vinyl record album

Peabo Bryson & Roberta Flack

Born To Love
Capitol, 1983. Very Good+
The beautiful full scale duets set from Peabo Bryson and Roberta Flack – a record that's no doubt defined by it's biggest hit – but the rest is just as great! Born To Love kicks off with "Tonight I Celebrate My Love For You" – a song that's doubtlessly one of the most ... LP, Vinyl record album
