LP (Item 526443) Pacific Jazz, Mid 50s — Condition: Very Good+
A 70s album that brings together material from Art Pepper's Pacific Jazz sessions of the 50s! One side features a nine-piece group with Pepper on alto, Don Fagerquist on trumpet, Bill Holman on tenor, Bud Shank on baritone, and Stu Williamson on trombone – the other side features material by the Art Pepper/Chet Baker Sextet!  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a cut 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.

Galaxy/Victor (Japan), 1979. Near Mint-
A nicely focused set from the great Art Pepper – a record that features a number of familiar bop and jazz themes, but set to a more open, relaxed, and very soulful style that wonderfully reflects all the greatness of Pepper in his final years! The group on the record is nicely understated, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Galaxy (Japan), 1980. Very Good+
A beautiful late "with strings" session from Art Pepper – with some piano by Stanley Cowell! LP, Vinyl record album
Interplay/Discovery, 1978. Near Mint-
A lesser-known set by Art Pepper from his late 70s years – recorded among a quartet of "friends" who include Russ Freeman on piano, Bob Magnussen on bass, and Frank Butler on drums! The tracks are longish, and mostly older standards – and overall, Pepper's a bit more inside ... LP, Vinyl record album
Contemporary, 1977. Near Mint-
A record that marks the live recording debut of the alto giant Art Pepper – quite a surprise, given that he'd already had many years of playing under his belt – but also a date that captures Art at a time of real revival in his career – stretching out with new inspirations, and a ...

Contemporary, 1957. Near Mint-
One of Art Pepper's classic recordings, in which he plays with a spare quartet backing by Miles Davis' rhythm section at the time – Paul Chambers, Red Garland, and Philly Joe Jones. An essential East meets West jazz recording, with Art at the top of his game, playing in a unique setting for ... LP, Vinyl record album

Art Pepper

Artistry Of Pepper
Pacific Jazz, 1957. Near Mint-
Classic Art Pepper material, recorded in one of his comeback periods, and featuring the famous Richard Claxton photo of Art Holding his horn next to a tree. There's several different lineups featured, with a coupl of quintet and quartet sides, and a few with larger horn section, and the sidemen ... LP, Vinyl record album
Pacific Jazz, 1963. Very Good
The title track was most likely meant to be something of a hit for Les McCann back in his early Pacific Jazz years – and while it maybe didn't hit the heights of the charts at the time, it's still a great little cooker that leads off a tasty little set! The group here is Les' "Ltd" ... LP, Vinyl record album

Booker Ervin

Structurally Sound
Pacific Jazz, Late 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold
One of Booker Ervin's last sessions – quite different than some of his earlier work, and a great indication of the way that he was stretching his style in the years before his untimely death. The group's a committed band of modernists, and includes a young Charles Tolliver on trumpet, plus ... LP, Vinyl record album
Pacific Jazz/Liberty, 1962. Near Mint-
One of the greatest albums of Brazilian jazz that Bud Shank ever recorded – done with a style that's a lot more like some of the best bossa albums from Rio at the time! Bud's recorded in other bossa settings before – but there's something about this record that really gets the whole ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chico Hamilton

Ellington Suite
Pacific Jazz, 1958. Near Mint-
Forget the Ellington in the title, because this is more a moody album of west coast chamber jazz, in the best tradition of the Chico Hamilton group! This album features the version of Chico's group with Paul Horn on flute and alto sax – plus Jim Hall guitar, Fred Katz cello, and Buddy ... LP, Vinyl record album
