Zoot Sims & The Gershwin Brothers

LP (Item 548030) Pablo, 1975 — Condition: Very Good+

Way more than just a Gershwin Songbook sort of record – thanks to some tremendous blowing here by Zoot Sims, who's mellowed nicely with age, and comes up with a wonderful sound for the record! It may just be us, but there seems to be a lot more soul in Zoot's horn than ever before – more humanity, and a sort of pausing, almost faltering approach to the tunes that takes them way past their overdone versions. The rest of the group includes Oscar Peterson, Joe Pass, George Mraz, and Grady Tate – but the Sims' sound is the main star of the set – and it's really wonderful! Titles include "The Man I Love", "Embraceable You", "Summertime", "Isn't It A Pity", "I've Got A Crush On You", and "Oh Lady Be Good".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light wear.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Zoot Sims plays the music of Johnny Mandel – a wonderful combination that makes the record a real standout in Sims' career from the time! The tunes all have a really well-penned quality – that mix of heartfelt and groovy that Johnny Mandel did so brilliantly back in the 60s – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Matrix

Harvest
Pablo, 1981. Very Good+
Sparkling fusion from Matrix – done in a style that mixes acoustic and electric elements nicely, in a way that's much more in keeping with older albums of the type than sets that were coming out at the time of this one! There's a groove here that's a bit like some of the west coast work from ... LP, Vinyl record album

Count Basie

Prime Time
Pablo, 1977. Near Mint-
The title's not a hokey TV reference or anything like that – but a strong reminder that the Count Basie group was still very much in their prime during the 1970s, thanks especially to the recording talents that the Pablo label brought to records like this! Most of the work here was arranged ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dizzy Gillespie

Dizzy's Party
Pablo, 1977. Near Mint-
Pretty wonderful funky work from Dizzy! The record's an excellent example of the messed-up funk groove that Diz was hitting at the time – a groove that he's never really given credit for, and which kept his records interesting long into the decade. Although the set's on Pablo, it's got more ... LP, Vinyl record album

Count Basie

Basie Big Band
Pablo, 1975. Very Good+
The Basie band is plenty big here – but never too much so to lose their confident swing of earlier years! The Count is still firmly at the helm at the time of this recording – leading and playing keys with that spacious, stepping quality that makes a Basie number of the later years ...

Miles Davis

Sketches Of Spain
Columbia, 1960. Very Good
A beautiful collaboration between Miles Davis and the great Gil Evans – and perhaps the most perfectly realized of all their projects! The album's got a wonderfully unified feel – as it begins with long compositions that have a distinct Spanish-tinge (and not a Latin-tinge, which is an ... LP, Vinyl record album

Charles Earland

Black Talk!
Prestige, 1970. Sealed
A pivotal album in the development of the use of the Hammond organ in jazz – and Charles Earland's first exposure to a large audience!
