Lucky Thompson (with Gerard Pochonet, 1956)

LP (Item 519026) Inner City, 1956 — Condition: Very Good+

Great Parisian recordings from Lucky Thompson – cool cuts from the mid 50s, done with the combo of drummer Gerard Pochonet! The sound here is great – in that although Lucky's blowing tenor, he's already showing signs of some of the phrasing he'd pick up more on soprano sax – kind of a light, clean tone that's really great. Players include Martial Solal on piano, Pierre Michelot on bass, Michel Hausser on vibes, and Jean Pierre Sasson on guitar – and the LP features 12 titles that include "Undecided", "Tenderly", "But Not For Me", "Indian Summer", "You Go To My Head", "I Cover The Waterfront", and "East Of The Sun".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has some wear with a sticker remnant in one corner.)

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.

Johnny Griffin

Live In Tokyo
Inner City, 1977. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
One of the most hard-burning Johnny Griffin records of the 70s – a cooking live se recorded in Tokyo, with energy that's much more freewheeling and open than his studio records of the time! The tracks are all quite long, and move with a quickly-expressive quality that's totally great – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Frank Strozier

Remember Me
Steeplechase/Inner City, 1977. Very Good+
A gem of a record – the kind of overlooked 70s session we really treasure! Reed player Frank Strozier was one of the all-time under-discovered greats – and this set reunites him with his old Memphis partner/MJT+3 bandmate, Harold Mabern – a perfect pairing for Strozier's warm and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Carlos Franzetti

Galaxy Dust
Inner City, 1981. Very Good+
One of the most ambitious albums we've ever seen from Carlos Franzetti – a set that mixes his own keyboard-driven fusion with some surprising larger arrangements! Carlos starts the set out slow – singing a haunting version of the title track – then really takes off with some ... LP, Vinyl record album

Clark Terry & Chico O'Farrill

Spanish Rice
Impulse, 1966. Very Good+ Gatefold
Sweet Latin licks from Clark Terry and Chico O'Farrill – cut in a mode that's very similar to O'Farrill's best Verve work of the 60s! The vibe is kind of a mod take on Afro Cuban sounds – not really Latin soul, but with a playful vibe that mixes together jazz and Latin with equal parts ... LP, Vinyl record album

Zoot Sims

Hawthorne Nights
Pablo, 1976. Very Good+
Personnel include Zoot Sims on tenor sax, Oscar Brashear on trumpet, Ross Tompkins on piano, Monty Budwig on bass, Nik Ceroli on Drums, and Frank Rosolino on trombone. LP, Vinyl record album

Lou Levy

Touch Of Class
Dobre, 1978. Near Mint-
Always-classy piano work from Lou Levy – a player who really opened up a lot in the 70s, and took his music way past the more familiar modes of his initial 50s fame! There's lots of cool dark notes on the set – sounds that we never would have expected to hear from Lou in previous ... LP, Vinyl record album


Happy & In Love
RCA, 1971. Very Good+
A great second chapter for The Shirelles – hardly the girl group pop they cut in the 60s, and instead a more righteous soul style for the 70s – in a mode that's like Honey Cone or Three Degrees! The backings are nice and soulful – almost funky at times – with arrangements ... LP, Vinyl record album

Alec R Costandinos

Romeo & Juliet
Casablanca, 1977. Very Good+
Without a doubt, Alec R. Costandinos was one of the strangest disco arranger/producers of the 70s! He had a very baroque vision that took full advantage of the disco industry's heavy cash to turn out these mini disco symphonies filled with full orchestral strings, funky beats, and very high ... LP, Vinyl record album


In Full Gear
Tommy Boy, 1988. Very Good+
The second Stet LP, with the group repping BK in fine style. There's a fair share of Prince Paul niceness here, and Daddy-O's beats are no slouch either, in case the matching sweatsuits aren't enough to get you open. In the time of rappers cobbling together LPs with mix and match producers, it's ... LP, Vinyl record album
