Duke's Mixture (10 inch LP)

LP (Item 514698) Columbia, Late 40s — Condition: Very Good

Duke's Mixture is more of a collection – or "mixture" – of other work than anything else – an assortment of tunes recorded during different sessions, all brought together for release as a 10" in 1955. Titles include "I Let A Song Go Out Of My Heart", "The Hawk Talks", "Do Nothing Till You Hear From Me", "The Mooche", and "VIPs Boogie".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(6 eye pressing with deep groove.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Columbia, Late 50s. Near Mint-
Very nice work from one of Ellington's revival periods – when he was signed to Columbia in the late 50s, and recording some of the best work of his career.

Duke Ellington

Duke Ellington Presents
Bethlehem, 1956. Very Good-
An excellent and oft-overlooked 50s session from Duke – recorded in Chicago as a one-off for the Bethlehem label, and done with a lush, rich sound that's really tremendous! The group's nicely restrained and very moody – playing here in a mellow late nite mode that offers a good focus ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rodney Franklin

In The Center
Columbia, 1978. Near Mint-
Wonderful keyboard work from the amazing Rodney Franklin – a player who sounds equally great on acoustic and electric piano! This album does a wonderful job of mixing them both – showing Rodney's more sensitive side on a few acoustic numbers, but then really taking off in a much more ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dave Brubeck

Time Out
Columbia, 1959. Very Good
Easily the crowning moment of genius for the legendary Dave Brubeck Quartet – the moment when all things came together magically, and the group somehow elevated themselves to a whole new level in jazz! At the time of the set, Brubeck, Paul Desmond, and the rest had already been making plenty ... LP, Vinyl record album

Donald Byrd & Gigi Gryce

Modern Jazz Perspective
Columbia, 1957. Very Good-
The second of two early LPs that the Byrd and Gryce team cut for Columbia – and the more obscure of the two by far! This one features the group's groundbreaking format – a mixture of hardbop and modern jazz, always swinging, but angularly carved, with striking tones and colors that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, Early 60s. Near Mint-
Not to be confused with the other Monk album of the name Misterioso, this one is a live set (which is maybe why they put "recorded on tour" in the title!) – done in quartet format with Charlie Rouse, and either Larry Gales or Butch Warren on bass, and either Ben Riley or Frank ...

Ramsey Lewis

Routes
Columbia, 1980. Near Mint-
Ramsey Lewis in two modes – both of them great! The set's got Ramsey working with two different producers, each on a different side of the record – and both of them bring a nice inflection to the soulful groove that Lewis had already developed at Columbia Records! Side one's done with ... LP, Vinyl record album
