Once Upon A Summertime

LP (Item 546063) Artists House, 1977 — Condition: Near Mint-
Gatefold
Long, open-ended later work from Chet Baker – the kind of album that still had him working out interesting ideas in his music! The group features Harold Danko on piano, Greg Herbert on tenor, Ron Carter on bass, and Mel Lewis on drums – on cuts that include "ESP", "Shifting Down", "Tidal Breeze", and "Once Upon A Summertime".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original early 80s US pressing. Includes the booklet. Cover has a cutout notch, light wear, small scrapes in front, and is bent at the corners of the spine.)

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.

Circle (Germany), 1984. Sealed
One of the really fantastic sessions that Chet Baker recorded for the Circle label in the 80s – and one that's got a bit more umph than some of the others, as it features work from Bob Mover on alto and soprano, and Jon Earley on flugelhorn – in a drum-less group with Dennis Luxion on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Red (Italy), 1983. Very Good+
A sweet Italian set from Chet Baker – from a scene that always seemed to bring out his most lyrical side – and a record that's done in that easy, open, understated style that makes us love Baker's last decade so much! Back in the day, folks only zeroed in on classic Chet from the 50s ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chet Baker

Witch Doctor
Contemporary/Fantasy, 1953. Near Mint-
Chet Baker and Rolf Ericson on trumpet, Bud Shank on alto and baritone saxophone, Bob Cooper and Jimmy Giuffre on tenor saxophone, Claude Williamson and Russ Freeman on piano, Howard Rumsey on bass, and Max Roach and Shelly Manne on drums. LP, Vinyl record album
Music (Italy), 1960. Sealed
A rare Italian-only album from Chet Baker – wonderfully cooking small group work that's a far bit greater than his more familiar "with strings" session recorded in Italy during the same period! The album's got Chet working with an array of great players from the local scene – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Riverside, 1958. Near Mint-
One of Chet Baker's most classic albums of the 50s – a record that features both vocals and strong trumpet solos – all from a time when Baker was one of the hottest things going in jazz! The album's different from records from previous years, in that it moves Baker from LA to New York ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lennie Tristano

New Tristano
Atlantic, 1962. Near Mint-
An incredible record by Lennie Tristano – one that features him playing solo piano, but in a way that's so inventive, so creative, so pyrotechnic, that Atlantic Records had to include text on the back cover saying "No use is made of multi-tracking, over-dubbing, or tape-speeding" ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dexter Gordon

GO
Blue Note, 1962. Sealed
A seminal set of work from the Blue Note scene of the 60s – a record that's not just noteworthy for its role in helping return tenorist Dexter Gordon to the spotlight, but also for the fantastic work of pianist Sonny Clark in the quartet! Sonny's in wonderful form throughout – and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy McGriff

Something To Listen To
Blue Note, 1970. Near Mint-
An obscure little album by Jimmy – a real lost session that kind of fell between his Blue Note and Solid State years. The set's got Jimmy grooving in 2 different modes – one a more traditional soul jazz organ style, similar to other 60s work, but almost tighter; the other a freer, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny Rollins

East Broadway Run Down
Impulse, 1966. Very Good Gatefold
One of the most free-wheeling Sonny Rollins albums of the 60s – an album that features some very long, extended tracks that really break out from some of the straighter moments of Sonny's mid-60s recordings! The title track is an incredible 20 minute workout – one that almost feels ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Pate

Date With Johnny Pate
King, 1959. Very Good
Live set by the great Chicago bassist, recorded at the London House, with a piano trio though the rest of the personnel aren't listed. Though Pate is more well known for his later work, these early sides have a nice south side jazz feel to them. Cuts are short and lively, with a good club feel. ... LP, Vinyl record album
Trend, 1954. Very Good
(Cover has some surface wear.) LP, Vinyl record album

Dexter Gordon

Generation
Prestige, 1972. Very Good
One of Dexter's most solid albums on Prestige – and a great set cut at the Van Gelder studios with a rock-solid American lineup that includes Cedar Walton, Freddie Hubbard, Buster Williams, and Billy Higgins. The ensemble groove is a lot tighter than on some of Gordon's solo-heavy European ... LP, Vinyl record album
