Beginning & The End

LP (Item 515427) Columbia, 1952/1956 — Condition: Very Good+

Features very early work with Chris Powell & His Blue Flames – on "Ida Red" and "I Come From Jamaica" – plus 3 longer Philly sides from 1956, with Billy Root on tenor and Sam Dockery on piano – on titles that include "Walkin", "Donna Lee", and "Night In Tunisia".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a small center split in the bottom seam.)

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.

Paul Horn

Altura Do Sol
Columbia, 1976. Near Mint-
One of the best Paul Horn recordings of the 70s – tracks that were recorded amidst the Brazilian fusion explosion of the 70s, and which really push Horn's sound to the limit! The album features work composed by Egberto Gismonti, played by Horn, Gismonti, Dom Salvador, and Dom Um Romao with a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Duke Ellington

Ellington At Newport
Columbia, 1956. Very Good+
One of the first albums to ever issue recordings made at the Newport Jazz Festival – quite a big hit, and the beginning of a real trend in jazz! The set's also some great work by Duke – free to perform in a setting that's not bound by some of the time restrictions of earlier years, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stan Getz/Jimmy Rowles

Peacocks
Columbia, 1975. Near Mint-
A real standout in the Stan Getz catalog of the 70s – a session of mostly spare duets with pianist Jimmy Rowles, done in a way that really breaks from the format of Stan's other work of the time! Rowles here has a raspy warmth that brings out new voicings in Getz's tenor – an ... LP, Vinyl record album

Miles Davis

Nefertiti
Columbia, 1967. Near Mint-
Dark genius from the always-amazing Miles Davis Quintet of the 60s – a set that's a bit more subtle than some of the group's other efforts, but no less powerful – and virtually a blueprint for countless changes to come in jazz during the next few decades! The interplay of Davis' ... LP, Vinyl record album

Miles Davis

My Funny Valentine
Columbia, 1964. Sealed
One of those key cases where Miles Davis took a familiar song and made it his own! The set's a live one, and features a famous 15 minute version of "My Funny Valentine" – played by Davis in a spacious, open sort of way – and one that has key hints of the modernism to come in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bill Evans

Bill Evans Album
Columbia, 1971. Very Good+
A pretty sublime album from Bill Evans – one that has him playing both Fender Rhodes and Steinway, overdubbed together, for an effect that's laidback and completely wonderful! The Fender Rhodes was a natural choice for Evans – given his fluid lyrical style, and on this set (and on his ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1978. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
One of Herbie Hancock's great acoustic moments of the 70s – quite a contrast to his more dynamic electric work of the time, with the subtle, sensitive approach of some of his Japanese trio sessions! Likewise, Chick Corea reminds us that he's great on the acoustic keys too – and works ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia (Japan), 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold
A totally wonderful Japanese-only album from pianist Hampton Hawes – a set that's very different than both his American and European work of the 60s – and a date that also features key work from some excellent Japanese musicians! Hawes has that great open sense of flow he really ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia (UK), 1961. Near Mint-
With Buck Clayton and Emmett Berry on trumpet, Dickie Wells on trombone, Earl Warren on alto sax and clarinet, Bubby Tate on tenor sax, Sir Charles Thompson on piano, Gene Ramey on bass, and Oliver Jackson on drums. Titles include "Night Ferry", "One For Buck", "Mr Melody ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stan Getz with Joao Gilberto

Best Of Two Worlds
Columbia, 1976. Very Good+
A wonderful return to the sounds of Brazil for Stan Getz – a 70s album that reunites him with Joao Gilberto, but in a style that's somewhat different than the pair's older Verve recordings! The sound here is looser, freer – more in that breezy Brazilian mode that evolved out of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Quincy Jones

Smackwater Jack
A&M, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold
A great bit of 70s electric work from Quincy – and probably his funkiest album ever! Quincy's really stepping out here from the straighter and spacier styles of earlier records – going for more of the dirty grooves he was cutting up for soundtrack albums, and hitting notes that were a ...

Oliver Nelson's Big Band

Live From Los Angeles
Impulse, 1967. Very Good+ Gatefold
A unique little outing for Oliver Nelson – one that breaks him out of the familiar territory of the studio, and puts him in a much more spontaneous live setting! Nelson's playing soprano sax on the album – using the instrument in an edgey way that has echoes of Coltrane, yet which also ... LP, Vinyl record album
