Listen To The Ahmad Jamal Quintet

LP (Item 54829) Argo, 1960 — Condition: Very Good
A nicely expanded take on the Ahmad Jamal sound of the early 60s – one that adds in guitar from Ray Crawford and violin from Joe Kennedy to Jamal's usual trio grooving! The main focus here is often still on the core group – which features Israel Crosby on bass and Vernell Fournier on drums – but the added elements are used sparely to bring in new colors to the tunes, with Kennedy bowing violin lines on most of side one, and Crawford hitting some of his great single-note lines on most of side two. Titles include "Ahmad's Waltz", "Valentina", "Tempo For Two", "Yesterdays", and "Baia".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Grey label Argo pressing with deep groove. Cover has a tiny cutout hole, and a small bottom seam split, but looks nice!)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Ahmad Jamal

Freeflight
Impulse, 1971. Near Mint- Gatefold
Brilliant work by Jamal – and one of his first albums to feature electric piano! The mode of the tracks is in that "stretching out" style he was using as the 60s came to a close – a bit inspired by McCoy Tyner, but more an exploration of the lyricism of his earlier work, set ...

Ramsey Lewis

Never On Sunday
Argo, 1961. Very Good
Simple genius from the classic Ramsey Lewis Trio – Ramsey on piano, Eldee Young on bass, and Red Holt on drums! The tunes are a strong mix of originals, standards, and some nice bits from odd sources – all arranged by Ramsey and crew to make strong use of their well-styled blend of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Baby Face Willette

Mo Rock
Argo, 1964. Near Mint-
A screamin' set of organ tracks by the legendary Baby Face Willette – one of the best organists of the early 60s, with a sound that's a lot madder than most! This album's one of two that Baby Face cut for Argo Records in Chicago – and it's a firey trio session with Baby Face wailin' ... LP, Vinyl record album
Argo, 1958. Very Good+
Ramsey and the trio are on the front in tuxedoes, top hats, and tails – but the overall sound of the record is much more in keeping with their soul jazz grooves of the late 50s – not necessarily gentlemanly, but with a worldly appreciation for a variety of styles of music, and perhaps a ... LP, Vinyl record album

JC Heard

This Is Me
Argo, 1958. Very Good+
A cracker of an album from JC Heard – a rare small group outing from the drummer who mostly worked with bigger groups in the 50s – and a real chance for JC to show off a different side of his talents! The setting here is relatively small and relaxed – with players that include ... LP, Vinyl record album

James Moody

Great Day
Argo, 1963. Very Good
Way more than just a James Moody album – a true proof of his genius in the 60s!

LP, Vinyl record album

Ramsey Lewis

In Crowd
Argo, 1965. Very Good-
One of the biggest jazz albums of the 60s – and a crucial crossover set from the legendary Ramsey Lewis trio! The record's a live one, which gives the group a perfect chance to show off their special genius – not just soulful grooves from Ramsey on piano, but wickedly sharp and playful ... LP, Vinyl record album
Argo, 1964. Very Good
A killer live set from Ramsey Lewis and his classic early 60s trio – a record that's not nearly as well known as The In Crowd, but every bit as great! Drummer Red Holt and bassist Eldee Young really get in some great elements here – working with Ramsey's piano in a groove that's far ... LP, Vinyl record album

Art Farmer

Perception
Argo, 1961. Very Good+
An amazingly beautiful set of tracks from Art Farmer – playing here with superb accompaniment from a young Harold Mabern on piano, in a laidback quartet format that really lets Art open up! Art's playing is fresh and creative throughout – never too over the top, and always blown with ... LP, Vinyl record album
Argo, 1961. Very Good-
A record with a gimmick – but one that's totally great, and really unique for the time! The "1 to 10" in the title is the way that the album spins out – as track 1 features Golson blowing solo tenor, track 2 features him in duet, track 3 a trio – and so on, until track ...
