(Cover is faded a bit along the spine.)

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

Barry Harris

Preminado
Riverside, 1961. Very Good+
An album that's as evocative as its title – one that features a young Barry Harris stepping out with the kind of sound that first got him noticed right away! There's a bit of a bop influence in the way he hits the keys on the set, but the overall approach is often more lyrically soulful ... LP, Vinyl record album

Toshiko Akiyoshi

United Notions
MGM/Metro, 1958. Near Mint-
A unique early large group session from pianist Toshiko Akioshi – recorded with a hip group of international players! The record's almost a precursor of some of Akioshi's better-known big band work of later years – but it's got more of a small combo feel overall, thanks to a tight ... LP, Vinyl record album

Odell Brown

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

Bob James

Bold Conceptions
Mercury, 1962. Near Mint-
Early early work by Bob James – recorded years before his classic 70s sides on electric piano, and in a brightly modern mode that recalls the spirit of Steve Kuhn and Paul Bley at the time! The set's a trio session – produced by Quincy Jones, who'd heard the young James and rushed him ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stanley Turrentine

That's Where It's At
Blue Note, 1962. Sealed
Where it's at with Stanley Turrentine – circa 1962 – a time when the tenorist was really hitting on all burners, and turning out some tremendous work for Blue Note! The album's got Stan working with a special guest – a rare Blue Note appearance from pianist Les McCann, who's also ... LP, Vinyl record album
ABC, 1968. Very Good+
A really wonderful post-Chess album from pianist Ahmad Jamal – a set that's maybe got a bit more bite than some of his earlier work, and which features a bold groove that really points the way towards some of Jamal's sounds to come! The format and setting are familiar – Jamal's trio ... LP, Vinyl record album

Herbie Mann with Machito

Afro-Jazziac
Roulette, Early 60s. Very Good+
A great little LP – even if it is a discographer's nightmare! The record was most likely recorded originally under Machito's name, and only featured Mann as a soloist – but it's not the album Kenya, so we're not sure which one it is, although it does look like a repackaging job ... LP, Vinyl record album

Thad Jones & Mel Lewis Orchestra

Monday Night
Solid State, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold
Genius work from the Jones & Lewis group – easily one of their best albums! If you've ever wondered why these guys got the chance to make so many records, check out this excellent early set and hear them at their finest. The group's a kick-ass one – with a host of all-star players ... LP, Vinyl record album

George Wallington

Jazz For The Carriage Trade
Prestige, 1956. Near Mint-
Sublime work from pianist George Wallington – and one of his best albums ever! The set's also one of the few he ever recorded as a leader outside the trio format, and has him working with a very hip quintet that features Phil Woods, Donald Byrd, Teddy Kotick, and Art Taylor – all ... LP, Vinyl record album
Buddah, 1970. Very Good+ Gatefold
Great stuff from this legendary Chicago soul group! Although the band was trying to break out of their sweeter image as a young group (the cover has them looking pretty dope and wearing these wild pimpin' outfits), they're still pretty darn sweet and soulful here, with only a hint of the later ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rotary Connection

Aladdin
Cadet, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold
Heavenly mystical soul from Rotary Connection! If you know the group, you know the deal already: Minnie Riperton sings vocals on a number of cuts, and the great Charles Stepney's producing and arranging, with a super-baroque style that's still light years ahead of most producers in pop! The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cliff Nobles & Co

Horse
Phil-LA Of Soul, Late 60s. Very Good+
A funky instrumental classic – with a groove that was copied by a huge amount of other groups! Cliff and crew take the funky 45 sound into the mainstream – vamping and comping in tight choppy grooves that were perfect for dances like The Horse, The Jerk, and some of the other harder ...
