Super Jazz Trio

LP (Item 528168) Baystate (Japan), 1978 — Condition: Near Mint-

A great record by a combo with a name that might sound a bit slick – but who easily rival the best other trio material from pianist Tommy Flanagan! In the manner of the Great Jazz Trio, the Super Jazz Trio was a group assembled for Japanese recording sessions – and given a catchy name to no doubt sell them to the masses! Getting past the gimmick, though, the set's a great pairing of the piano of Tommy Flanagan, bass of Reggie Workman, and drums of Joe Chambers – working here in the freedom of the Japanese piano trio recording style of the 70s – with a good deal of space to extrapolate and explore familiar themes, in a style that differed from some of the players American recordings. The set features long readings of 4 jazz classics – "Pent Up House", "So Sorry Please", "Let's Call This", and "Milestones" – plus 2 originals, "Ballad" by Flangan, and "Condado Beach" by Chambers.  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes original obi and insert too!)

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.

Marion Brown

November Cotton Flower
Baystate (Japan), 1979. Near Mint-
One of the warmest, most sensitive albums we've ever heard from saxophonist Marion Brown – a record that really takes off strongly from the soulful spirit of his last few albums for Impulse Records in the early 70s! Like those great sets, the vibe here is nice and laidback – not the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hidefumi Toki & The Super Jazz Trio

City
Baystate (Japan), 1978. Near Mint-
A great trans-Pacific meeting of talents – as Japanese reedman Hidefumi Toki works here with the Super Jazz Trio of Tommy Flanagan, Reggie Workman, and Joe Chambers! The set's got the open, flowing sort of sound you'd expect from a Japanese piano trio session of the time – but it's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Harris

Bossa Nova
Vee Jay, Early 60s. Very Good
Very nice, very tight little bossa nova set by Eddie Harris from his early days at Vee Jay! The groove is very open, and Eddie's still at the stage where he can really cut the stuff. His solos ring out hard and cold above some great Lalo Schifrin arrangements, and Lalo also plays piano on the ... LP, Vinyl record album

King Fleming Trio

Weary Traveler
Cadet, 1965. Very Good
King Fleming's third trio side for the Argo label, another variety of standards with a few Fleming originals thrown in for good measure. In the Chicago piano trio tradition of Ramsey Lewis or Ahmad Jamal (who actually followed in Fleming's footsteps), this set covers soulful ballads like "Dearl ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Coltrane

Ole
Atlantic, 1961. Very Good
A magnificent record from John Coltrane – one of his earliest expressions of unbridled spirituality, and a session that we've treasured for years! As you might guess from the title, there's a slight Latin focus to the record – but not one that has congas and bongos creating choppy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jackie McLean

Right Now
Blue Note, 1965. Very Good+
Great stuff, and one of Jackie McLean's best for Blue Note from the "new thing" period! The album features Jackie working out a wealth of new ideas, in a quartet that includes Larry Willis on piano, Bob Cranshaw on bass, and Clifford Jarvis on drums. Jackie holds down the frontline ... LP, Vinyl record album
Pacific Jazz, 1957. Very Good+
Gerry Mulligan meets up with a great array of 50s modernists here – in specially setting dedicated to all Mulligan-penned compositions! Although a radical player himself on the baritone sax, Gerry also added something strong to the 50s jazz catalog with his great tunes from the early days ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Coltrane & Johnny Hartman

John Coltrane & Johnny Hartman
Impulse, 1963. Very Good Gatefold
A landmark album of vocal jazz – and one of the few sessions that John Coltrane ever cut with a singer! In a way, the album's more Hartman's than it is Coltrane's – given that Johnny's warm, mellow style of singing isn't as free and open as Trane at his most adventurous – but at ... LP, Vinyl record album
GNP, Early 50s. Very Good-
Killer west coast work from arranger Lyle Murphy – almost a more modern take on the Four Brothers sound of the time! The players here are all wonderful, and saxophonists include Bob Gordon on baritone, Buddy Collette on tenor, Russ Cheever on baritone, and Frank Morgan on alto – all ... LP, Vinyl record album

Randy Brown

Intimately
Parachute/Casablanca, 1979. Very Good
Excellent work from Randy Brown – a great singer with a massive talent for being both smooth and deep at the same time, something we'd reserve for a rare few, like Frankie Beverly or Teddy Pendergrass during their best periods. This album featuers Randy singing tracks written by Homer Banks ... LP, Vinyl record album
Avco, 1975. Very Good
Some of the greatest falsetto harmony ever recorded – and a smoking batch of the group's biggest hits! 10 tracks in all, with titles that include "Stone In Love With You", "People Make The World Go Round", "Break Up To Make Up", "Betcha By Golly, Wow", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Candi Staton

Young Hearts Run Free
Warner, 1976. Very Good+
After first breaking into the soul business as a mellow southern-styled singer cut by Rick Hall in the classic Fame mode of Muscle Shoals, Candi made a wise move to the Hotlanta sound and hooked up with producer Dave Crawford for this runaway hit album from the mid 70s! The title cut – " ... LP, Vinyl record album
