LP (Item 536830) RCA/Bluebird, 1939/1940 — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP Gatefold

Third volume of recordings for Bluebird, with Georgie Auld and Tony Pastor on tenor, Hank Freeman and Les Robinson on alto, Bernie Privin, Chuck Peterson, and Johnny Best on trumpet, George Arus, Harry Rodgers, and Les Jenkins on trombone, Al Avola on guitar, Bob Kitsis on piano, Sid Weiss on bass, and Buddy Rich on drums.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(70s issue. Cover has a promo stamp.)

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.

Doc Severinsen

Rhapsody For Now
RCA, 1973. Near Mint-
Kind of a cool concept album for Doc Severinsen – one that has him blowing amidst some larger suites arranged by Oliver Nelson, Harry Betts, and Tommy Newsom – each with a slightly different feel! The set starts out with the hip "Rhapsody For Now" – comprised of some ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1958. Near Mint-
A bit of an obscure session, but the first of John Lewis' works for a larger jazz orchestra – recorded with a lineup that includes larger strings and woodwinds next to rhythm backing by Percy Heath and Connie Kay of the MJQ!

Toshiko Akiyoshi/Lew Tabackin Big Band

Long Yellow Road
RCA, 1974. Near Mint-
A 70s classic from the team of Toshiko Akioshi and Lew Tabackin – a duo who did for the jazz ensemble mode in their generation what Kenny Clarke and Francy Boland did in the 60s! The material here is wonderfully inventive – the kind of compositions that Toshiko wouldn't have even ... LP, Vinyl record album

Paul Desmond

Take Ten
RCA, 1963. Very Good-
That's "Take Ten", not "Take Five" – a great title cut that echoes Paul Desmond's previous work with Dave Brubeck – but which then gives way quickly to some sweet bossa-styled grooves done with guitar from Jim Hall! The album's one of the strongest of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1956. Very Good
One of the best records we've ever heard from pianist Lou Levy – a record that steps past the simple format of earlier records, into a style that's slightly modern, and very cool – thanks to the addition of vibes to his usual trio format. Larry Bunker plays vibes on the record, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wild Bill Davis

Live At Count Basie's
RCA, 1966. Very Good
Wild Bill Davis serves up plenty of Hammond here – working in a trio with guitar from James Thompson, and drums from a young Freddie Waits! LP, Vinyl record album
Cadet, 1967. Sealed
Sweet LA soul jazz from trumpeter Bobby Bryant – an oft-overlooked player with a hard hitting sound that was a bit like Nat Adderley! The album's one of Bobby's best (and few) – and it's got a really groovy little feel, almost in a Jazz Crusaders mode – with a small combo playing ... LP, Vinyl record album
MGM, Early 60s. Good
Leonard Feather organized session that pits West and East coast players together in a mock "battle" that takes up a side of the record for each coast. Playing for the East are Frank Wess, Benny Powell, Thad Jones, and Oscar Pettiford. Playing for the West are Don Fagerquist, Bob ... LP, Vinyl record album

Miles Davis

Water Babies
Columbia, 1967. Very Good+
A much different album than you might expect from the cover – hardly the funky 70s set implied by the Big Fun-styled cover – and instead a lost slice of work from his groundbreaking late 60s years! The set was recorded in 1967, but unissued until Miles late 70s time away from the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Soul Flutes

Trust In Me
CTI/A&M, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold
An excellent little groover from that great period where CTI was affiliated with A&M, this record is the kind of pop/jazz/easy listening crossover stuff that's been such a hit with the loungecore fans over the years. Don Sebesky handled the arrangements – and players include Herbie ... LP, Vinyl record album
