Piano Improvisations Vol 2

LP (Item 515660) ECM, 1971 — Condition: Very Good+

Beautiful solo piano from Chick Corea – almost in a Keith Jarrett mode on ECM – mostly original improvisations, plus extrapolations on work by Thelonious Monk and Wayne Shorter!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has an unglued seam and some surface wear.)

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.

Polydor, 1978. Very Good+
Beautiful solo piano improvisations – similar to Chick's work in an earlier mode for ECM! LP, Vinyl record album

Chick Corea

Friends
Polydor, 1978. Very Good+
There's Smurfs on the cover of this one, but the album's no cartoony effort – and is instead one of the nicest Chick Corea albums of the 70s! The sound here is nicely restrained from some of Chick's more ambitious records – and is done in a way that almost recalls some of Bob James' ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pat Metheny

Offramp
ECM, 1982. Very Good+
A really wonderful little record from Pat Metheny – quite possibly our favorite by the man, thanks to some really inventive sounds that still resonate strongly in the groove scene today! Pat's skirting nicely here between the sound-based quality of earlier records, and some of the more fluid ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gary Burton

New Quartet
ECM, 1973. Very Good+
A fantastic 70s album from Gary Burton – a set that definitely has the "new" promised in the title, as it takes off more from some of Gary's work in previous years! The record's got this explosive sense of color that really comes through in Gary's vibes – and in the way the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Paul Motian

Conception Vessel
ECM, 1973. Sealed
Paul Motian didn't always record that much as a leader, but the dates under his own name are always compelling ones – and quite a change from his more famous work with Bill Evans! This set is a sparkling showcase of original tunes by Motian – played by a shifting array of players that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pat Metheny

Travels
ECM, 1982. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A live album, but every bit as seminal as the studio sides that Pat Metheny cut for ECM at the time – and proof that the Metheny magic was clearly his own, and not just a product of studio tricks by Manfred Eicher! The set reprises tunes and themes from a variety of Metheny's earlier ECM ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pat Metheny

New Chautauqua
ECM, 1979. Near Mint-
A completely solo album from Pat Metheny – but one that still sparkles with the same sort of energy as his fuller group sessions for ECM! At a point when Pat could be content to simply scrawl a few simple lines on the strings of his guitar, he instead does a great job of complicating things ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gary Burton

Passengers
ECM, 1977. Near Mint-
Laidback and warmly chromatic work from Gary Burton – playing vibes in a group that also has Pat Metheny on guitar, Steve Swallow on bass, Eberhard Weber on acoustic bass, and Dan Gottlieb on drums. Titles include "Sea Journey", "Nacada", "The Whopper", and ... LP, Vinyl record album
ECM, 1981. Near Mint-
One of our favorite Metheny moments ever – and one of the few albums of his that we can go back to, and still enjoy heartily! The album's wonderfully stripped down – and features only guitar by Metheny, keyboards by Lyle Mays, and percussion and vocals by Nana Vasconcelos, all blended ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pat Metheny

American Garage
ECM, 1979. Very Good+
A brilliantly evocative album from Pat Metheny – one that's got a quietly epic feel, as Pat and group soar out across the American landscape in a set of tunes that subtly explore space and sound while still remaining wonderfully fluid. There's nothing forced here, and nothing too slick ... LP, Vinyl record album

Terje Rypdal

Descendre
ECM, 1980. Near Mint-
Classic ECM material from guitarist Terje Rypdal – a set that only features a trio, but which has a wonderfully majestic sound all the way through! Terje plays guitar, keyboards, and flute – somehow finding a moody edge on all three instruments – getting perfect accompaniment ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Surman

Upon Reflection
ECM, 1979. Near Mint-
Solo recordings by Surman on soprano and baritone sax, bass clarinet, and synthesizers. LP, Vinyl record album
