Insight

LP (Item 5345) RCA, 1965 — Condition: Very Good+
Tight hard swinging big band set, with really complicated arrangements and some great writing. Not all of the players are names you'll recognize, but Levitt's talent for arrangement and leadership ensure a tight tight band, and the album wails nicely. Tracks include "Stop Those Men!", "Vera Cruz", "Insight", and "The Mayor Of Vermont Village". Levitt's always talked about in hipster musician circles. Get this and find out why.  © 1996-2024, 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.

Eddie Harris

Playin With Myself
RCA, 1979. Near Mint-
A great little album from Eddie Harris – post-Atlantic, but done in a way that showed that Harris was still consistently inventive! The title track alone is worth the price of the record – so much so that you can almost forgive it for its silly little in-joke of "Playin With ... LP, Vinyl record album

Joe Daley with Hal Russell

Joe Daley Trio At Newport 63
RCA, 1963. Very Good+
A rare modern jazz set from the early 60s – noteworthy in that it's one of the few recordings from the time of Chicago tenorist Joe Daley – who works here in a trio with the young Hal Russell on drums! And yes, that's the same Hal that later broke out strongly in the Windy City avant ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1975. Very Good+
One of a few key efforts done by Michel Legrand for RCA in the 70s – sessions that stand out as some of his best jazz work from the decade, and which present Legrand in unfettered brilliance, both as a player and arranger! This live date still has the original compositions and sense of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Brothers! (Jazz Line)
RCA (France), 1955. Near Mint-
A classic set of interlocking tenor work from 3 giants who made up the best part of Woody Herman's classic 4 horn lineup – Al Cohn, Bill Perkins, and Richie Kamuca – all coming together here in small group formation!

RCA, Late 20s/1930s/1940s/Late 50s. Very Good+
An excellent collection of work by Coleman Hawkins – tracing his early amazing development of the use of the tenor in jazz, through his surprisingly modern sounds of the later years! LP, Vinyl record album
RCA (France), 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of the most ambitious projects ever from vibist Gary Burton – an extended piece written by Carla Bley – and billed as "A Dark Opera Without Words"! The work has a feel that's much more fluid than opera, though – and is a great instrumental outing that not only ... LP, Vinyl record album

Buddy Tate

Madison Beat
Harmony, Early 60s. Very Good+
This was a follow-up to the hit Ray Bryant record, "Madison Time", and although it's an obvious attempt to cover it, it's also released by the same label (Columbia) that put out the Bryant version. Buddy Tate leads a tight little combo through "Madison Time", and a host of ... LP, Vinyl record album

George Shearing

Velvet Carpet
Capitol, 1956. Near Mint-
A key Capitol Records classic from the legendary George Shearing! The set really pushes George past his famous early jazz sides – into sublime new territory that forged a rich sound for the late 50s – a blend of his small combo gentle grooves with larger orchestrations from Dennis ...
