LP, Vinyl record album

❔

Sweet keyboard grooves from Herbie Hancock – and a set that has him taking up some of the territory of younger players he'd inspired – like Bobby Lyle, Webster Lewis, or Rodney Franklin! There's a fair bit of soul in the mix here, including some great work on vocoder – blended in with Hancock's work on jazzy keyboards – all wrapped up in a cosmic level that really fits the image on the cover, and which acts as a preface for some of the electro work to come in the early 80s! The blend is great – with that sublime balance that Hancock did better than anyone else – and titles include "Trust Me", "You Bet Your Love", "Tell Everybody", "Honey From The Jar", and "Knee Deep".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Herbie Hancock

Headhunters
Columbia, 1973. Very Good+
A seminal jazz funk session of the 70s – Herbie Hancock's legendary meeting with The Headhunters, and a killer batch of tunes that really gave the combo their name!

Columbia, 1962. Very Good+
Paul Winter's classic sextet is recorded here in both Rio and New York – one of three different sessions that Winter cut for Columbia in the 60s – all records that explore his own love of the bossa at a time when it was coincidentally very good business to be doing so!

Mingo Lewis

Flight Never Ending
Columbia, 1976. Near Mint-
One of the hardest-jamming fusion records we've ever heard from mid 70s CBS – a blistering mix of fast guitar, tight drums, and spacey keys – all punctuated by some organic percussion on congas from Mingo Lewis himself! The groove really takes off to the sky – in the manner that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Denny Zeitlin

Zeitgeist (Jazz Greats)
Columbia, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
Denny steps a bit outside at times – never to much so to make the album a session of avant jazz, but definitely showing the listener at the start that he's able to stretch out in the same way as some of the more adventurous pianists of his generation – yet really sound best as a master ...

Freddie Hubbard

Bundle Of Joy
Columbia, 1977. Very Good
A bundle of soul from Freddie Hubbard – one that has him blowing beautifully over full arrangements from Bert DeCoteux – the 70s super-soul maestro who really brings a new sound to Hubbard's music! The style's a bit smoother than other Freddie albums of the time, but still really great ... LP, Vinyl record album

Knight Music
Atlantic, Late 50s. Very Good+
Great work from bop legend George Wallington – one of the last records in an initial run of 50s strengths from the pianist – and a set that features some great original compositions of his own!
