Newport 58

LP (Item 534089) Mercury, 1958 — Condition: Very Good+

(Blue label Drummer logo pressing with deep groove.)

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.

Mercury, Early 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold
An extremely groovy session from arranger Pete Rugolo – done in a style that's partly jazz, but which also has lots of dynamic range – in a way that's almost in the style of some of the RCA bachelor pad albums from the time. Rugolo makes the most of the interesting format – using ... LP, Vinyl record album

Erroll Garner/Leith Stevens

New Kind of Love – Original Soundtrack
Mercury, Mid 60s. Sealed
A really unusual album from piano giant Erroll Garner – a jazz album at the core, but one that was also used as the soundtrack for an obscure Paul Newman film of the 60s! We always love Erroll Garner in a fuller setting – something that's not always easy to find on record – and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Red Prysock

Beat
Mercury, 1957. Very Good
Heavy tenor instrumentals from the great Red Prysock – with tunes that include "Tea Bird", "Purple Wail", "He's A Real Gone Guy", "Earth Rock", "Pog Wog", "Lion's Den", "Mashin Potatoes", and "2 Point 8". LP, Vinyl record album
Keynote/Mercury (Japan), Mid 40s. Very Good+
A great Japanse-only album that brings together rare early material from Lennie Tristano – a player who was years ahead of his time in these 40s recordings, working in a trio with the great Billy Bauer on guitar! LP, Vinyl record album

Attila Zoller

Horizon Beyond
Mercury, 1965. Near Mint-
One of the few truly great albums by one of the hippest guitarists we can think of! Zoller was a fantastic talent of the European scene – with an approach to the guitar that's unlike anyone else we've heard. Unfortunately, though, he didn't always make that many albums as a leader in a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Clef/Mercury, Early 50s. Very Good
An early collaboration between Count Basie and Norman Granz – and a real cooker too! Granz shows some great foresight here – grabbing Basie at a time when his group was just getting its groove back, and really learning how to hit a more modern sound! The set includes some great tenor ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chico Hamilton

Catwalk
Mercury, 1977. Very Good+
Not classic Chico – but a pretty darn nice album of fusion tracks, very much in the spirit of other Mercury jazz work from the 1976/1977 generation! The tracks have a nice riffing groove to them – with fast tight drums from Chico, souflul sax work by Arthur Blythe and Gary Gordon, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Red Prysock

Fruit Boots
Mercury, Mid 50s. Very Good+
Raw tenor from this great R&B talent – with tracks that include "The Shakers", "Fruit Boots", "Red Rock", "Plaid Laces", "What Next", "The Fox", and "Lulu". LP, Vinyl record album

Nick Travis Quintet

Panic Is On
RCA, Mid 50s. Very Good+ Gatefold
No panic here – just tightly-crafted jazz, and one of the better RCA small combo sessions of the 50's! Trumpeter Nick Travis leads the group in that well-honed style that RCA was carving at the time – work that was as arranged as much of the recordings coming out of the west coast, but ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wes Montgomery

Day In The Life
CTI/A&M, 1967. Very Good+ Gatefold
Mindblowing! This is when Wes Montgomery really starts to get interesting to us – when he's working with a top-line arranger like Don Sebesky, crafting some incredibly compelling chords over lightly jazzy arrangements and soaring strings, in a whole new mode of expression that would go onto ...
