Twin House

LP (Item 547202) Elektra, 1977 — Condition: Near Mint-

Compelling duets between guitarists Larry Coryell and Philip Catherine – a studio album recorded in London, hot on the heels of their performance together at the Berliner Jazztage! Although known for their electric musings at the time, both players work here mostly in an acoustic mode – creating beautifully intimate interplay without any other instrumentation at all – in ways that are mostly jazzy, but which also echo the evolution of the guitar during the decade in other genres as well. Titles include "Ms Julie", "Home Comings", "Airpower", "Twin House", "Mortgage On Your Soul", and "Gloryell".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(German pressing. Cover has some staining on the top.)

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.

Larry Coryell & Philip Catherine

Splendid
Elektra, 1978. Very Good+
Acoustic duets between Larry Coryell and Philip Catherine – recorded with a style that's much more intimate and personal than some of the previous recordings by either player!

Stanley Clarke & Chick Corea

Griffith Park Collection
Elektra, 1982. Near Mint-
A seminal set in the rebirth of straight jazz in the early 80s – a wonderful record with a much warmer, more traditional feel than you'd expect from some of the players involved! Bassist Stanley Clarke and pianist Chick Corea really return to their roots here – Stanley with some of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mingus Dynasty

Chair In The Sky
Elektra, 1979. Very Good
A bold statement from former members of the Charles Mingus group – working here together as a unit after the passing of Mingus, in a set that has some of the best fire and energy of Charles' later years! The tracks here are all Mingus compositions – performed in longish takes that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lonnie Liston Smith & The Cosmic Echoes

Expansions
Flying Dutchman, 1975. Very Good Gatefold
Quite possibly the most celebrated album ever from keyboardist Lonnie Liston Smith – a groove-heavy classic that's burned up many a dancefloor in its day, yet also a record that features some great mellow moments as well! The title track "Expansions" is virtually a blueprint for ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy Smith

House Party
Blue Note, Late 50s. Good
One of the best hard-wailing all-star sessions that Jimmy did so well for Blue Note! The album features an amazing array of top-line players – like Tina Brooks, Lee Morgan, Curtis Fuller, Lou Donaldson, Art Blakey, and Kenny Burrell – and they all play with Smith in differing ... LP, Vinyl record album

Woody Herman

King Cobra
Fantasy, 1976. Near Mint-
Funky Woody from the 70s – an excellent and overlooked album, one that has Woody leading a great group with a fair bit of electric players, in a funky big band style that sparkles with the best of the genre! The group's filled with younger unknown players – but from the sound of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Willis Jackson

Please Mr Jackson
Prestige, 1959. Near Mint-
Smoking tenor work from the legendary Willis Jackson – and a key record in Jackson's transition from 50s R&B to 60s soul jazz! Willis gets some great help on the session from Jack McDuff on organ and Wild Bill Jennings on guitar – both of whom craft some rootsy grooves that further ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny Stitt

I Remember Bird
Catalyst, 1977. Very Good+ Gatefold
Stitt remembers Bird? How could he ever forget him? Seriously, though, this is a nice set of boppish material that moves past the usual "Bird" tribute. In fact, none of the stuff's by Bird, and most of the track list is a fairly non-traditional list of tracks. However, Stitt is ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gerald Wilson Orchestra

Golden Sword
Pacific Jazz, Late 60s. Very Good Gatefold
Latiny tracks from Gerald Wilson – but done with his usual tight LA soul jazz groove! Wilson swings, as always, and leads a band of LA players with a fabulous mix of styles. The set's got Harold Land, Anthony Ortega, Laurindo Almeida, Roy Ayers, Teddy Edwards, and Jimmy Woods – to ... LP, Vinyl record album

Al Grey & The Basie Wing

Last Of The Big Plungers
Argo, 1959. Very Good
Basie-esque stuff by Al Grey, who made his name playing trombone in Basie's band. The group includes a lot of other Basie-ites, including Billy Mitchell, Joe Newman, and Benny Powell. The great Floyd Morris (one of Chicago's best talents of the time!) plays piano, and titles include "Bluish ... LP, Vinyl record album
