Lester Young Story Vol 3 – Enter The Count

LP (Item 533085) Columbia, Late 30s — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP Gatefold

Seminal sides cut with Count Basie at the end of the 30s – presented in a package with very detailed liner notes!  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Pablo, 1956. Near Mint- Gatefold
A lost treasure from Lester Young – previously unreleased live material from the 50s, recorded in a style that's a fair bit different than some of his studio work of the decade!

Lester Young

Lester Swings
Verve, 1945/1950/1951. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Lester Young definitely swings here – on material from a number of different Verve albums of the early 50s – with work from Nat King Cole on piano and Buddy Rich on drums on one session – plus more work from either Hank Jones or John Lewis on piano, and Buddy Rich and Jo Jones on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1952. Near Mint-
Lester Young joins the Oscar Peterson trio – and the result is a classic meeting of the minds from early 50s Verve! Young's tone is tremendous throughout – that sharp-yet-cool style that had such a big influence on other 50s players, and which gets some great support here from Peterson' ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pres & Teddy & Oscar
Verve, 1952/1956. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
A pairing of 2 mid-50s sides by Lester Young for Verve – one album recorded with Teddy Wilson on piano, the other with Oscar Peterson – hence the title!

Pres (Charlie Parker)
Charlie Parker, Early 50s. Near Mint-
No real date or personnel on this one, and the album's a live set recorded, most likely, at some time in the 50s. The quality of the recording isn't great, and you hear a heck of a lot of crowd noise – but the work's an interesting document of Pres during the period, as the tunes are all ...

Tony Williams Lifetime

Million Dollar Legs
Columbia, 1976. Very Good
Tony Williams is a million miles from his work with the Miles Davis Quintet on this record – grooving in a heavy rock/fusion mode with his New Lifetime group that includes Allan Holdsworth on guitar, Tony Newton on bass and vocals, and Alan Pasqua on keyboards! The tracks have a post Jeff ... LP, Vinyl record album

Duke Ellington

Piano In The Background
Columbia, 1961. Very Good
Don't let the title put you off, because this certainly isn't a session of background music – and the name simply refers to the fact that the arrangements on the set really showcase the strong horn work of the Ellington orchestra! Duke's still on piano for the session, but the real strength ... LP, Vinyl record album
