Jimmy Knepper In LA

LP (Item 523583) Inner City, 1977 — Condition: Near Mint-

A unique later session from trombonist Jimmy Knepper – produced as a Japanese-only release in the 70s by saxophonist Lew Tabackin – who's also a key member of the group! Given that Knepper's best known for his sharp-toned sounds with Charles Mingus in previous decades, this later set is quite a revelation – as it shows a fuller, rounder side of Jimmy's talents – still with a great deal of feeling on the trombone, but in ways that are often more fluid, lyrical, and personal. The group's a hip quintet with Tabackin on both tenor and flute, Roger Kellaway on piano, Monty Budwig on bass, and Shelly Manne on drums – and the tunes include some driving Knepper originals, "The Masher" and "Bertha The Dragoness" – plus moody takes on "All The Things You Are", "Yesterdays", and "My Old Flame".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.
