Joe Pass At The Montreux Jazz Festival 1975

LP (Item 523828) Pablo, 1975 — Condition: Very Good

The guitar of Joe Pass was one of the best-recorded instruments by Pablo Records in the 70s – as you'll hear on this wonderful live date from the label! Pass was a player who first rose to fame in the 60s, but wasn't always recorded that well – but in the 70s, Pablo sides like this really opened up his sound – and this completely solo live date from the Montreux Jazz Fest is possibly one of his best-ever from the time! Joe has a subtle swing that really comes through, even without a rhythm section – and his scope of sounds is tremendous – ranging up and down the guitar, but all without sounding gimmicky at all – showing dexterity that few other players could match, all while holding down swing without help from any other players. Titles include "Nuages", "How Long Has This Been Going On", "Blues For Nina", "Lil Darlin", "The Very Thought Of You", "Nobs", and "You Are The Sunshine Of My Life".  © 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.
