Historic Donaueschingen Jazz Concert 1957

LP (Item 512326) MPS (Germany), 1957 — Condition: Near Mint-
Titles include "Dodo" and "Kinetic Energy" by Eddie Sauter, "Jordu" and "Paradoxe II" by Andre Hodier, and "Three Windows" and "JB Blues" by The Modern Jazz Quartet.  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(US pressing on PAUSA. Cover has minimal wear and a small dent at the opening.)

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.

Pedro Iturralde with Paco DeLucia

Flamenco Jazz
MPS (Germany), 1967. Near Mint-
Really wonderful stuff – and a record that may well be even better than the previous flamenco jazz albums cut by Paco DeLucia and Petro Iturralde in Spain! This set is part of a key late 60s moment when the MPS label was experimenting with a blend of jazz and sounds from around the globe ... LP, Vinyl record album
MPS, 1976. Near Mint-
One of three large group records that Francy Boland recorded after the breakup of the Clark/Boland Big Band – and one that has a feel that's very similar to the material by the classic CBBB. In fact, much of the personnel remains the same, and the group includes Benny Bailey, Tony Coe, Ronnie ... LP, Vinyl record album

George Duke

Aura Will Prevail
MPS, 1975. Very Good
The aura here is spreading wide – as George Duke really grows his sound strongly from the early years, and takes hold of a whole host of cosmic influences! The record's one of Duke's biggest for MPS – a beautiful balance between jazzy fusion and spacey soul – served up with help ... LP, Vinyl record album

Clarke Boland Big Band

Latin Kaleidoscope (US pressing)
MPS/Prestige, 1968. Very Good+
One of the greatest records ever by this hip jazz ensemble – and one of their most unique! The record has the band grooving hard through two incredible suites of Latin music – Gary McFarland's "Latin Kaleidoscope" and Francy Boland's "Cuban Fever" – each of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Monty Alexander

Now Is The Time
MPS/PA USA, Early 70s. Near Mint-
US issue of a Monty Alexander set that was previously out on MPS as Love & Sunshine. The record features his groovy group with Ernest Ranglin on guitar, Eberhard Weber on bass, and Kenny Clare on drums. The bass playing's especially good, and there's lots of nice round funky moments in some of ... LP, Vinyl record album

James Moody & Al Cohn

Too Heavy For Words
MPS, 1971. Near Mint-
Very nice, very laidback session that has Moody and Cohn trading solos on an easy batch of bop tracks, along with Barry Harris, Roy Brooks, and Sam Jones. The recording quality is at the usual high standard for MPS – although the set was actually produced by Don Schlitten, presumably in New ... LP, Vinyl record album

Freddie Hubbard

Hub Of Hubbard
MPS, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold
A classic European date from Freddie Hubbard – recorded right around the vintage of his Red Clay years, but with a sound that hearkens back more towards his Blue Note sessions of the mid 60s! There's a nicely angular feel to this set – that bold, modern quality that really set Hubbard ... LP, Vinyl record album

Oscar Peterson

Tracks
MPS (Germany), 1969. Near Mint-
A solo sparkler from Oscar Peterson – recorded in a flurry of excellent late 60s recordings for MPS, and done in a warmly rhythmic mode that puts Peterson's solo work right up there in the ranks of Tatum and Garner! The production on the album is immaculate – done with a depth that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Oscar Peterson

Motions & Emotions
MPS, 1969. Near Mint- Gatefold
Pure genius from Oscar Peterson – one of his finest moments ever! The record is very different than most of Oscar's over-recorded trio format ones – and features Claus Ogerman crafting some impeccable backings of lofty strings and compressed horns, creating a pillow of air that takes ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1974. Very Good+
A lost fusion classic from the early 70s – one of the only records cut under the leadership of drummer Horacee Arnold, but a heck of a great little set with a soaringly righteous sound! The style here is plenty full-on, but a bit less rock-leaning than some of the other Columbia fusion of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Harris

Mean Greens
Atlantic, 1966. Very Good+
A 60s classic from the great Eddie Harris – and proof that his move to Atlantic Records was a very good thing! There's a punch here that Harris didn't have in his earlier sides for Vee Jay – a bite that shows an even stronger focus than before – a willingness to mix soulful ... LP, Vinyl record album
