What was Nat's deal with the Ivy League? We can't figure it out, but the set's a strong one – with Nat in the lead, working in a group that's essentially the late 50s Cannonball combo. Cannon's on alto, Junior Mance on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Charles Wright on drums – and Ernie Wilkins arranged the tunes with a sparkly soul jazz finish that's perfect for Nat's tone on cornet. Titles include a number of strong originals – such as "Jackleg", "Rattler's Groove", "Hayseed", "Fat Man", "Sam's Tune", and "Bimini". (Blue label pressing with drummer logo & deep groove. Cover has some oxidation on front and a thin stain with a bit of gloss peeling on the opening.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, or have one outstanding flaw, such as a light residue, which could be difficult to clean.
  • May have marks on all parts, too many to qualify as Very Good-, or several deeper marks, but the record should still be ok for play without skips.
  • In general, this is a record that was played a fair amount, and handled without care. A typical example may be a record which has been heavily played by a DJ, and carries marks from slip cueing. Depending on the quality of the vinyl, may play with surface noise throughout.

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.

EmArcy, Late 50s. Very Good+
Incredible material from Max's "plus 4" group that included Ray Draper, George Coleman, Booker Little, and Art Davis! The band at the time was forging a haunting mix of hardbop and lyrical modernism, and was driven by Max's progressive vision and rich talent for selecting just the right ... LP, Vinyl record album

Moods (Trip)
EmArcy, 1955. Very Good+
Perhaps the best-known (and arguably the best) record by Paul Quinchette, and an album that brings his rich tenor solo style into contact with a very tight, very swinging batch of arrangments by a young Quincy Jones. Quincy's got an all-star batch of players backing up Q, including Sam Most, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Best Coast Jazz
EmArcy, 1954. Near Mint-
Not west coast, but "best coast" jazz – a prime example of the way the Clifford Brown/Max Roach team helped to cook up the intensity of the LA scene of the 50s by infusing it with a bit of New York fire! The album takes off in the extended mode of Clifford's All Stars album – ... LP, Vinyl record album

EmArcy, 1955. Very Good-
A classic "with strings" session from Clifford Brown – nearly as well-done and perfect as some of Charlie Parker's sides for Verve, handled here with perhaps a slightly sweeter touch, as Neal Hefti's the man on arrangements. The core group's the Brown/Roach combo, augmented by a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Herb Geller Sextette
EmArcy, 1955. Very Good
Classic early work by Herb Geller – and a record that features his crispy alto against a group that features wife Lorraine Geller on piano, Conte Candoli on trumpet, and Zoot Sims on tenor (playing here under the name Ziggy Vines!) The tracks are short, with a lot of west coast whimsy – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mercury/EmArcy, Late 50s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A great 80s EmArcy two-fer from Q's Mercury years! The Birth Of A Band is a very swingin', very groovy early album from Quincy – one that's clearly in the big band mode, but handled with soulful touches that really set it apart from the genre! The band is a great one all the way through ... LP, Vinyl record album
Maiden Voyage
Cadet, 1968. Very Good
One of the key records from the Cadet/Concept scene in late 60s Chicago – a tremendous collaboration between pianist Ramsey Lewis and arranger Charles Stepney – and the kind of record that took soul and jazz to a whole new level! Ramsey on his own is great enough at this point – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 1965. Near Mint-
Donald Byrd's second foray into the "with voices" genre – done with the same arranging talents of Coleridge Perkinson, the lyrical modernist who made Donald's A New Perspective such a success! The group that plays with Byrd is excellent, and includes Freddie Roach, Herbie Hancock, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mellow Yellow
Cadet, 1967. Very Good
One of the great little organ combo albums that Odell Brown recorded with his crack group The Organ-Izers for Cadet. Lots of very groovy stuff, with Louis Satterfield on bass (before the Pharoahs and before Earth, Wind, & Fire), Curtis Prince on drums, Henry Gibson on congas, and Artee "Du ... LP, Vinyl record album
Philips, 1963. Near Mint-
A rare 60s meeting of groovy talents from both sides of the Atlantic – and a record that matches the trumpet of Dizzy Gillespie with the hiply swinging vocals of The Double Six Of Paris! The group were a wonderfully groovy precursor to the Swingle Singers – and sung in a scatting ... LP, Vinyl record album
