LP (Item 542367) Chiaroscuro, 1965 — Condition: Near Mint-

1965 recordings, live at the Half Note – with Coltrane on tenor and soprano, McCoy Tyner on piano, Jimmy Garrison on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums – on long takes of "Impressions" and "Chim Chim Cheree" – plus an "Untitled Original".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(80s UK pressing.)

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.

Impulse, 1960s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Truly the best of the best of Coltrane's years at Impulse – as the collection has a strong focus on the longer, more spiritual numbers that he was free to develop while working for the forward-thinking company.

Six By Six
Chiaroscuro, 1977. Very Good+
An excellent and obscure session in a 70s free-ish mode, not too different from something you might hear on Strata East froom around the same time.

Black Lightning
Chiaroscuro, 1976. Very Good+
An album that was issued in the US, but which actually features excellent work that Abdullah Ibrahim/Dollar Brand recorded for the Gallo label in South Africa – the kind of edgier work that we often prefer next to some of his solo and trio material!

Buddy Tate/Dollar Brand

Buddy Tate Meets Dollar Brand
Chiaroscuro, 1977. Very Good+
A wonderful record based around a brilliant concept! Buddy Tate is a hell of a tenor player – with a tone that's up there with Rollins, Coltrane, and other giants – but his frequent recording patterns usually have him in less adventurous swing-based sessions, ones that don't get him to ...

Jazzland, 1961. Very Good
A killer set of grooves from vibes legend Johnny Lytle – one of the first and one of the few to ever combine vibes with Hammond organ – in this case, the work of Milt Harris on the keys! The group is a very rhythmic trio, thanks to Harris on the bass pedals, and Penny Hinant on the ... LP, Vinyl record album
