Classics In Jazz (10 inch LP)

LP (Item 529316) Capitol, Mid 40s — Condition: Near Mint-
(€2.51 || £2.21 || ¥335) (approx.)

(Cover has aging and some pen on back.)

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.

Capitol, Mid 60s. Very Good+
Once again, Cannon proves that it's not the song, it's the singer! This set of tunes from the hit musical Fiddler On The Roof should be schmaltzy – but thanks to the quality of the group (a great sextet with Nat Adderley, Charles Lloyd, Joe Zawinul, Sam Jones, and Louis Hayes), and thanks to ...

Mercy, Mercy, Mercy!
Capitol, 1966. Very Good+
If the 60's ever had a "hit" jazz record, it was probably this one! The album's a sparkling live session featuring the trademark soul jazz sounds of the Cannonball Adderley group with Joe Zawinul on acoustic and electric piano, and brother Nat Adderley on cornet. The tracks have a long ... LP, Vinyl record album

Group Activity
Capitol, 1954. Very Good+
Cooper and Holman don't actually play together on this album but it is rather a collection of some of their sessions for Capitol, originally in the Kenton Presents Jazz series, from 1954. Side A is mostly comprised of Cooper and his band playing such songs as "The Way You Look Tonight", ... LP, Vinyl record album
Encores
Capitol, Early 50s. Very Good
A collection of some of Kenton's early 50s hits, presented here as "encores", with most of the tracks arranged by Pete Rugolo. 11 tracks in all, including "He's Funny That Way", "Painted Rhythm", "Journey To Brazil", "Somnambulism", "Chorale ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1952. Very Good-
Beautiful modernist work from Kenton – one of the first albums to cull his genius together as a whole, filled with the kind of tracks that perfectly sum up his unique approach at the time! If you've ever wondered what makes Kenton so great, this is the album to begin with – as it's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, Early 50s. Good+
An excellent package of this seminal work in the development of the American jazz avant garde, and one of the most "out" records that Kenton (or Capitol) ever released! The album is based around a composition by Robert Graettinger – "This Modern World" – with ... LP, Vinyl record album
Latin Rendezvous
Capitol, Mid 60s. Very Good-
Nothing fancy, but a really nice set of Latin jazz tunes – played by Shearing's usual quintet, with added percussion and flute, which open up the sound nicely. As usual, it's the mix of piano and vibes that make the session work, but the snaking quality of the flute also helps a lot too ... LP, Vinyl record album
Latin Escapade
Capitol, 1956. Very Good+
A great one from George Shearing – beautifully restrained, but coming across with these Latin grooves that are mighty nice too! Shearing's just about the only cat who could balance Latin percussion with piano this well – and the album's a perfect example of the way that George borrowed ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol/Mobile Fidelity, 1973. Near Mint-
A completely fresh take on the Charlie Parker aesthetic of the bop generation – updated for the 70s, but in ways that are still pretty classic overall! The group's a large one, but plays with a tightness that goes way past their gimmicky name – thanks to players who include Med Flory ... LP, Vinyl record album
Maiden Voyage
Cadet, 1968. Very Good
One of the key records from the Cadet/Concept scene in late 60s Chicago – a tremendous collaboration between pianist Ramsey Lewis and arranger Charles Stepney – and the kind of record that took soul and jazz to a whole new level! Ramsey on his own is great enough at this point – ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
