Kelly Great

LP (Item 5330) Vee Jay, 1960 — Condition: Very Good+
$39.99 ...

LP

(€35.39 || £30.53 || ¥4028) (approx.)

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". (Rainbow label stereo pressing, with Audiomatrix stamp. Cover is in great shape!)  © 1996-2016, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

A rare early 10" session by Wynton Kelly – who's working here in a trio format with Oscar Pettiford on bass and Lee Abrams on drums!

Kelly At Midnite

Acid Jazz (UK), 1988. Near Mint-
Early album to come out of the UK Acid Jazz scene, and more of a straight jazz LP than the label name might imply.
