Renaissance

LP (Item 548492) CBS, 1987 — Condition: Near Mint-

Features Branford Marsalis on tenor and soprano sax – with Kenny Kirkland on piano, Bob Hurst on bass, and Tony Williams on drums!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

CBS (Netherlands), 1964. Very Good
The earliest album we've ever seen from pianist Louis Van Dyke – a bit more swinging than some of his later work, but a set that's already got his great sense of space very firmly in place!

Shelly Manne & His Men

Jazz Gunn
Atlantic, 1967. Near Mint-
Shelly Manne scored big with a jazz version of the Peter Gunn soundtrack in the 50s – and he does it again in this 60s version of Henry Mancini's music for the full-length Gunn movie! The style here is a bit more far-reaching and looser than before – showing not just Manne's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Billy Larkin & The Delegates

Ain't That A Groove
World Pacific, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
One of the greatest records ever cut by organist Billy Larkin – a lean, mean batch of soul jazz instrumentals, recorded with the Delegates combo, featuring tenor work by a young Fats Theus!

Cecil Taylor/Buell Neidlinger

New York City R&B
Candid, 1961. Near Mint-
An early 60s session by Cecil Taylor for Candid, and a record that's one of our favorites by him from the early years! Despite the seemingly odd use of the term "R&B" in the title, the record's actually got a sound that's a bit more soulful than usual for Cecil, with surprising use ... LP, Vinyl record album
Arista/Novus, 1978. Very Good+
Classic AACM material from Chicago, strangely issued on Arista, but produced by Michael Cuscuna with all the care of a small-label session. The classic lineup of Henry Threadgill, Fred Hopkins, and Steve McCall is firmly in place – and they band interacts with a sense of humor and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Miles Davis

Porgy & Bess
Columbia, 1958. Very Good
Way more than just a simple version of work from Porgy & Bess – and instead, a key collaboration between Miles Davis and Gil Evans – done with a sound that really transforms the tunes! True, the work here is all based on George Gershwin's original compositions – but through ... LP, Vinyl record album

Archie Shepp

Tradition
Horo (Italy), 1977. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
One of Archie Shepp's most soulful records of the 70s – and proof that the Horo label could get amazing work out of any player! The record features Shepp in a spare trio setting – with Cameron Brown on bass and Clifford Jarvis on drums – and each of the four sides features an ... LP, Vinyl record album

Air Song
India Navigation, 1975/1982. Near Mint-
A tremendous album from Air – recorded in their native Chicago, but one of the landmark 70s sessions on Japan's Why Not label!
