Mahavishnu

LP (Item 542302) Warner, 1984 — Condition: Near Mint-
Also available
Mahavishnu Orchestra — Mahavishnu ... CD 10.99

A very electric set from guitarist John McLaughlin – a date that has the leader playing a host of modern variations on the instrument, plus a synclavier as well – but always with the sense of creative imagination he brought to Mahavishnu work in years past! There's some slight undercurrent of earlier spirituality in the tunes, but the overwhelming vibe is that of 80s fusion modes – played in the company of Mitchell Forman on Fender Rhodes and other keyboards, Jonas Hellborg on electric bass, Bill Evans on tenor, and Billy Cobham on drums. Titles include "Radio Activity", "Jazz", "The Unbeliever", "Pacific Express", and "East Side West Side".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light wear.)

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.

Mahavishnu Orchestra

Birds Of Fire
Columbia, 1972. Near Mint-
A great second album from Mahavishnu Orchestra – one that has them still very might in the same tight formation as the first! As before, there's a heck of a lot of power here – monstrous work on drums from Billy Cobham, sharp-edged guitar from John McLaughlin, and a range of great ... LP, Vinyl record album

George Benson

Give Me The Night
Qwest/Warner, 1980. Very Good
Yipes! This one made everyone a bucket of money – especially Quincy Jones, whose new Qwest imprint the record was one of the first to grace. George has come a long way from his roots with Jack McDuff here – but in a way that kind of has us impressed, as he's grooving away slickly on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Deodato

Motion
Warner, 1984. Near Mint-
A tasty LP from Deodato's later years where he was leaning a little more heavily on commercial R&B and soul for inspiration than his jazzier approach of earlier years. Motion has Deodato moving into the realm of 80s soul – using a bit more of an electro feel overall – one that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pete Christlieb/Warne Marsh

Apogee
Warner, 1978. Very Good+
A brilliant set of post-post-post Konitz jazz – a late 70s Warne Marsh session, produced by Donald Fagan and Walter Becker of Steely Dan! Despite the smooth jazz feeling of Becker & Fagan's own work, the pair are completely respectful to Marsh and his twin-tenor frontman Pete Christlieb ... LP, Vinyl record album

George Benson

Breezin
Warner, 1976. Very Good+
A super huge hit for George Benson – and the record that took him from being a funky jazz guitarist into an R&B superstar – opening up sides of his talent that first emerged on his 50s R&B recordings as Little George Benson, but taken here into some very hip 70s territory! The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rahsaan Roland Kirk

Return Of The 5000 Lb Man
Warner, 1975. Very Good
A beautiful late chapter in the jazz journey of Rahsaan Roland Kirk – and an album of subtle genius that's really opened up to us over the years! The setting here isn't as "hit you over the head" as on some of Kirk's Atlantic Records – because at one level, the tunes are ... LP, Vinyl record album

Deodato

Love Island
Warner, 1978. Near Mint- Gatefold
Late 70s work from Deodato – quite different than his bossa organ work of the 60s, and early 70s funk sides – but pretty darn great nonetheless! The album shows Deodato's continuing shift towards a more soul-based sound – and it mixes together a smoother club sound with jazzier ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warner, 1969. Near Mint-
A wonderful record from guitarist Laurindo Almeida – way way better than the title might make you think, and quite different from his albums for Capitol! The album is subtitled "electronic excursions", and while it's not exactly electronic, it does feature Almeida soloing over some ... LP, Vinyl record album

Clare Fischer

Manteca!
Pacific Jazz, Early 60s. Very Good
One of our favorite albums ever from the great Clare Fischer – and one of the first to really show his special talents at their best! The sound here is a wonderful blend of jazz, Latin, and Brazilian modes – and in addition to piano, Clare plays plenty of organ on the date – ... LP, Vinyl record album
