CD (Item 546369) Riverside, 1962 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

CD


One of the best non-Blue Note sessions from Art Blakey in the 60s – a really searing set that features the sextet lineup of the Jazz Messengers – a group that's filled with legends who include Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Wayne Shorter on tenor, Curtis Fuller on trombone, Reggie Workman on bass, and Cedar Walton on piano! The sextet format really pushes the energy of the group – and allows for even more wonderful horn interplay than before – while still allowing for lots of solo space for individual voices. Tracks are long and open, with a bouncing lyrical groove that's more soaring than some of the heavy-hitting earlier albums from Blakey, but no less pleasing – and possibly even a bit more soulful! Titles include "Sweet N Sour", "This Is For Albert", "Skylark", and "Thermo". Includes 2 bonus tracks – alternate takes of "Thermo" and "Sweet N Sour".  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible. All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

Keystone 3
Concord, 1982. Used
Long, lean live energy from Art Blakey and a well-remembered version of The Jazz Messengers – a group that includes both Branford Marsalis on alto and Wynton Marsalis on trumpet – plus great tenor from Bill Pierce as well! The vibe is nicely different than the 60s years of the group ... CD
Blue Note/Mosaic, 1960. Used 6CDs
An incredible year for Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers – a time when the group included Lee Morgan on trumpet, Wayne Shorter on tenor, and Bobby Timmons on piano! The work here is the stuff of legend – and this year's worth of material includes sessions that appeared on the albums ... CD
East Wind, 1961. Used
A rare Art Blakey performance from a tour in Tokyo – featuring a crack 1961 lineup with Lee Morgan on trumpet, Wayne Shorter on tenor, and Bobby Timmons on piano – all grooving together nicely! The set was recorded in Sankei Hall on January 2, 1961 – and titles include "Nelly ... CD
Limelight (Japan), Mid 60s. Used Gatefold
One of the most obscure mid 60s sides by Blakey – and a great one! The record features a strangely-chosen lineup of the Jazz Messengers that includes Lee Morgan, Freddie Hubbard, Lucky Thompson, and John Hicks. Thompson's in his very soulful "just returned from Europe" phase, and ... CD
Jazz Message
Impulse, 1963. Used
Art Blakey, without any Jazz Messengers – but still coming through loud and clear, thanks to help from a unique group that features Sonny Stitt on tenor, McCoy Tyner on piano, and Art Davis on bass! The album's still got all the hardbop charm of Blakey's best Blue Note dates, but also feels ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1959. Used
One of a handful of late 50s albums that Chet Baker recorded for Riverside – all of which are some of his last great 50s work in the studio, before a shift in the 60s to a wider-ranging approach to his music! The style here is definitely in the "classic" Baker mode set down for ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1960. Used
They're not kidding with the title of this one – because although the record was only Wes Montgomery's second album as a leader, he was already making plenty of waves with the sound of his guitar! The session lines Wes up with the very tight rhythm team of Tommy Flanagan on piano, Percy ... CD
Riverside (Japan), 1963. Used
There's nothing "flashback" about this one – because the record's about as in-the-moment as you could be for jazz piano in the early 60s! Don Friedman's a really tremendous player at this point in his career – a sometimes unsung hero in the space between Bill Evans and Keith ... CD
Riverside/OJC, 1959. Used
With Herbie Mann on flute and tenor, Zoot Sims on alto and tenor, Pepper Adams on baritone, and even some piano from Bill Evans! CD
Riverside (Japan), 1962. Used
A great little set from Friedman – a vastly underrated pianist who's working here as a bright young modernist in a trio with Chuck Israels on bass and Pete LaRoca on drums. The tracks have a freedom that reminds us a lot of Bill Evans' early work, with a warm lyricism that never gets too ... CD
Homecoming!
Riverside, 1961/1992. Used
A great little album that Hope made upon his return to the east coast in the early 60s – not too long before he passed away. Half the tunes are cut with a sextet that features Blue Mitchell, Frank Foster, and Jimmy Heath – and the other are cut with a trio that features Hope, Percy ... CD
Things Are Getting Better
Riverside/OJC, 1958. Used
An album that definitely lives up to its title – given the great change and evolution in the style of Cannonball Adderley's music – definitely pointed towards the soul jazz fame to come in the 60s! The group here has Adderley's alto in the company of some all-stars who may not be his ... CD
