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.

Clark Terry

Clark Terry
EmArcy, Mid 50s. Fair
A stunner – and one of Clark Terry's finest moments ever! The record has a rawness and groove that you'd hardly expect from his later albums – no surprise, though, considering that it was cut during that really hip time at Emarcy, when the label was working in a mode that was darker ...

Stratospheric
EmArcy/Mercury, Mid 50s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Great early sides for Emarcy – most recorded on the LA scene in the 50s, with players who include Herb Geller on alto, Conte Candoli on trumpet, Bud Shank on flute and alto, Bob Cooper on tenor, and Bob Gordon on baritone sax! LP, Vinyl record album

Maynard Ferguson

Maynard Ferguson Octet
EmArcy, 1955. Very Good-
Maynard Ferguson's blowing full steam ahead here – working with an octet that's heavy on horn parts, but in a richly creative way! Ferguson nicely shows off some of his best influences from the 50s large group scene in LA – and gets some key help on the record from Bill Holman, who ... LP, Vinyl record album

Paul Quinichette

Vice Pres (Trip reissue)
EmArcy, Early 50s. Very Good+
Some of the greatest work as a leader ever cut by tenorist Paul Quinichette – longtime Basie alum, and a key player who was the "Vice Pres" next to Lester Young's "Pres". The record is one of the best full-length albums by Quinichette from the early days, and combines ... LP, Vinyl record album

June Gardner

Bustin Out
EmArcy, Late 60s. Very Good+
A rollicking batch of 60s instrumentals, served up by drummer June Gardner – billed as Gentleman June on the cover! June's from New Orleans, but the groove here is more in a Memphis mode – vamping along with a larger group in a post-Ray Charles mode – featuring tighter soul ... LP, Vinyl record album
EmArcy, Mid 50s. Very Good
Notable sidemen include Lester Young, Red Norvo, Earl Hines, Cozy Cole and more. LP, Vinyl record album

John Williams

John Williams Trio
EmArcy, 1955. Very Good
Don't get this John Williams confused with the bigger-name soundtrack composer of later years – because this set is pure piano jazz all the way through, played by an artist who shined briefly with Stan Getz in the mid 50s! Although little-known, Williams is a great link between bop and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Shelly Manne & His Men

Jazz Gunn
Atlantic, 1967. Near Mint-
Shelly Manne scored big with a jazz version of the Peter Gunn soundtrack in the 50s – and he does it again in this 60s version of Henry Mancini's music for the full-length Gunn movie! The style here is a bit more far-reaching and looser than before – showing not just Manne's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Billy Larkin & The Delegates

Ain't That A Groove
World Pacific, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
One of the greatest records ever cut by organist Billy Larkin – a lean, mean batch of soul jazz instrumentals, recorded with the Delegates combo, featuring tenor work by a young Fats Theus! The tracks are short tight jazz dancers – with a mixture of stepping grooves and some more full ... LP, Vinyl record album
