One of Wynton Kelly's greatest albums, and an all-star hardbop session that includes Lee Morgan, Wayne Shorter, Paul Chambers, and Philly Joe Jones. With Philly Joe on drums, and Morgan and Shorter, the LP almost has the feel of a classic Art Blakey session for Blue Note, but Kelly's piano gives it a feel that's a bit warmer, and more relaxed. The tracks are nearly all long, with very open room for soloing, and nice catchy hooks by the various writers – who include Kelly, Morgan, and Shorter. Titles include "Wrinkles", "Mama G", "What Know", and "Sidney". (Maroon label pressing, with deep groove, in the mis-spelled cover, with split seams and some surface wear.)  © 1996-2016, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, or have one outstanding flaw, such as a light residue, which could be difficult to clean.
  • May have marks on all parts, too many to qualify as Very Good-, or several deeper marks, but the record should still be ok for play without skips.
  • In general, this is a record that was played a fair amount, and handled without care. A typical example may be a record which has been heavily played by a DJ, and carries marks from slip cueing. Depending on the quality of the vinyl, may play with surface noise throughout.

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.

Incantation
AFI/RML, 1973. Near Mint-
Obscure midwest group with Rufus Reid on bass and Art Hoyle on trumpets. There's a vague Sun Ra connection here, which mostly manifests itself in the record's cool spare spacey sound. The standout cut is "Frump Trump", which has a nice hard boogaloo sound, and a great breakbeat on the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sings & Swings Organ
Mainstream, Early 70s. Very Good+ Gatefold
Gloria Coleman was one in a long line of swingin' female organists, and is probably closer in that lineage to Trudy Pitts than to more straight jazz players like Shirley Scott. This LP has her doing organ and vocal stuff alongside an ensemble of guitar, tenor, and trombone. There's funky stuff ... LP, Vinyl record album

Latin Shadows
Impulse, 1965. Very Good Gatefold
A great album from Shirley Scott – with some excellent arrangements by Gary McFarland! We've always felt that Shirley plays best when she's not leading the group – when someone else is handling the arrangements, so that she can groove mightily on her own – and this album is a ...
