Lester Young Story Vol 5 – Evening Of A Basie-ite

LP (Item 533087) Columbia, Early 40s — Condition: Very Good+
2LP Gatefold

Includes work recorded with Count Basie and Billie Holiday!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(White label promo. Cover has light wear and a promo stamp.)

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.

Lester Young

Lester Young (Pres)
Charlie Parker/Everest, 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 ...

Columbia, 1939. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Great material from that pivotal year of 1939 – a time when Lester Young's horn set a tone for a whole new generation! LP, Vinyl record album

Lester Young

Lester Young In Paris
Verve, 1959. Very Good
A beautiful session that was Lester Young's last-ever recording! The session was cut in Paris in 1959, and features the rhythm section of the famous Blue Note club, home to many American expatriots in France at the time. Kenny Clarke plays drums, Jamil Nasser plays bass, Rene Utreger is on piano, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Immortal Lester Young
Savoy, Late 40s. Near Mint-
A collection of earlier sides that Young recorded for Savoy, released after his death, and featuring various small groups that include such players as Freddie Greene, Count Basie, Junior Mance, Roy Haynes, Billy Taylor, and Cozy Cole.

CBS Jazz All Stars

Montreux Summit Vol 2
Columbia, 1977. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
A wonderful follow-up to the first Montreux Summit album – and like that classic, a groundbreaking assemblage of some of the best jazz musicians of the 70s! The format here is slightly different – with more of a focus on smaller groupings of musicians, but still with a really fresh ear ... LP, Vinyl record album

Art Farmer

Baroque Sketches
Columbia, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
Baroque Sketches shows the wider reaching side of Art Farmer, and features him soloing over large arrangements of material that have a distinct "baroque" approach. The settings are complicated, but Farmer's deft work is more than enough to match the scene – and he responds with a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Leonard Bernstein

What Is Jazz?
Columbia, Late 50s. Very Good+
Hilarious! Always one to try to prove that he wasn't just a stodgy uptowner, Leonard Bernstein cut this album as a "guide to jazz" – featuring narration by Mr. B himself, plus playing by Miles Davis, Buck Clayton, Teo Macero, and Louis Armstrong. The record traces the evolution of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wilbert Longmire

With All My Love
Tappan Zee/Columbia, 1980. Very Good+ Gatefold
Sweet later work from guitarist Wilbert Longmire – a warm mixture of soul and funky jazz – and easily one of the better records to come from the Tappan Zee label at the time! Production is by Bob James and Jay Chattaway – with an R&B-inflected vibe that's a bit like some of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Shakti with John McLaughlin

Handful Of Beauty
Columbia, 1976. Very Good+
John McLaughlin's the only one pictured on the front cover, but the album's definitely still a highly-collaborative effort from the Shakti group – one that's awash in sounds and styles from Indian music! L Shankhar's violin is used almost as strongly as McLaughlin's guitar – with a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Joe Wilder

Pretty Sound
Columbia, Late 50s. Near Mint-
Don't be too put off by the title – which might make you think that the album's a bunch of flowery instrumentals – because it's actually a pretty strong set of tunes from trumpeter Joe Wilder, recorded with a bit of polish, to be sure, but in a way that lets him take the lead, solo-wise. ... LP, Vinyl record album

JJ Johnson

Really Livin
Columbia, Late 50s. Near Mint-
One of the hippest, hardest albums that trombonist JJ Johnson ever cut for Columbia – a session we'd rank right up there with his amazing JJ Inc record, and like that one a really cooking hardbop record that maybe even rivals the best on Blue Note and Prestige at the time! As with that gem, ... LP, Vinyl record album
