Trumpet Battle 1952

LP (Item 544463) Verve, 1952 — Condition: Near Mint-

Jazz At The Philharmonic material from 1952 featuring Eldridge and Shavers on trumpet and Lester Young on tenor – with Benny Carter on alto, Flip Phillips on tenor, Oscar Peterson on piano, Berney Kessel on guitar, Ray Brown on bass, and Buddy Rich on drums – on three long tracks that include "Jam Session Blues", "The Trumpet Battle", and a "Ballad Medley".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(80s 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.

Alone
Verve, 1968. Very Good
Solo work by Bill Evans – recorded in 1968, at a time when he was increasingly exploring gentleness in his work!

Verve, 1963. Very Good
The sound of Gerry Mulligan in the early 60s – and one of the best records by his larger than usual Concert Jazz Band!

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!
