LP, Vinyl record album

✈
❔
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

Pieces Of A Dream

Pieces Of A Dream
Elektra, 1981. Near Mint-
The debut of a genius group that would forever transform the sound of electric jazz in the 80s – and a brilliant set that few others could match at the time! Pieces Of A Dream first snuck onto the scene with a sound that was refreshingly subtle at the time – almost a back-to-basics ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1963. Near Mint- Gatefold
Unlike the mellower Breeze from the East LP (another Tjader "eastern" session), this one's got some very lively Latiny stuff – despite the orientalist theme of the LP. There's a monster version of Horace Silver's "Tokyo Blues", plus takes of Lalo Schifrin's "The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Herbie Hancock

Secrets
Columbia, 1976. Near Mint-
Soulful 70s work from Herbie Hancock – a record that tightens things up from the Headhunters and Sextant sessions, but which still retains a lot of their depth and charm! Players here including some previous partners – like Bennie Maupin on reeds and Paul Jackson on bass – plus ... LP, Vinyl record album

Thelonious Monk

Always Know
Columbia, Mid 60s/1979. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Nice 2LP set that brings together a large amount of material by Monk that was recorded during the 60s, but never issued at the time. Most of the material is live, and some of the tracks did come out previously in edited form – but this collection (like so many of the other great Columbia 70's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lennie Tristano

New York Improvisations
Elektra, 1955/1956. Near Mint-
80s release of some rare sessions cut at Tristano's private Manhattan studio in the mid 50s, featuring spare trio tracks with Peter Ind on bass and Tom Weyburn on drums. The album is an essential chapter in Tristano's under-recorded career, and the tracks are a delight all the way through. Titles ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fantasy, Early 60s. Near Mint-
A slightly different vibe than some of the Cal Tjader Latin sets for Fantasy – but a great record that features early arrangements from the mighty Clare Fischer! Titles include "Ill Wind", "When The Sun Comes Out", "Between The Devil & The Deep Blue Sea", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stanley Turrentine

Sugar Man
CTI, Early 70s. Near Mint- Gatefold
A classic set from Stanley "Sugar Man" Turrentine – a nickname the reedman had at the time, given the success of his famous CTI Records version of "Sugar"! This set follows in that same great mode – jazzy, but a bit funky too – although couched with this ... LP, Vinyl record album
