Romances For Saxophone

LP (Item 549029) CBS, 1986 — Condition: Near Mint-

Marsalis plays with The English Chamber Orchestra directed by Andrew Litton on pieces by Debussy, Faure, Rachmaninoff, Stravinsky, Colombier, Villa-Lobos, Satie, Ravel, and Mussorgsky.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes the insert.)

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.

Stan Getz & Joao Gilberto

Getz/Gilberto
Verve, 1963. Near Mint- Gatefold
A landmark record – both in 60s jazz and bossa nova – and a set that not only bridged worlds of music, but set the tone for so many other albums to come! By the time of this 1964 set, Stan Getz had already issued a few bossa nova experiments on Verve – but this pairing with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Benny Carter

Further Definitions
Impulse, 1961. Very Good- Gatefold
A key later album from alto saxophonist Benny Carter – one that has him at the helm of a largeish group, but playing with a nicely focused sort of groove!

Les McCann

McCanna
Pacific Jazz, 1964. Very Good
A great Latin groove from the mighty Les McCann – a smoking set that adds in extra percussion from Willie Correa – who gives the record a sound that's quite a change from the usual McCann groove! The percussion is wonderful throughout – and given that the great Paul Humphrey is ... LP, Vinyl record album

Darius Brubeck

Chaplin's Back
Paramount, Early 70s. Near Mint- Gatefold
A weird one! – Dave Brubeck's son Darius plays music from Charlie Chaplin films like Modern Times, City Lights, and The Great Dictator. The sound's a bit hokey, but he does have a lot of hip bandmates helping him out, like Amos Garrett, Michael Brecker, and Perry Robinson. Amos Garrett ... LP, Vinyl record album
Coral, 1957. Very Good-
A great large group project from arranger Manny Albam – one that teams him up with "jazz greats" of the east coast scene, in a really hard-swinging set of tracks that showcase some wonderful solo work! Manny's working here with a set of players who are well-chosen for their ability ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stan Getz

Sweet Rain
Verve, 1967. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of Stan Getz's greatest records – no fooling! This gem often gets overlooked because it was issued in the years between Stan's bossa recordings and his later pop experiments – but trust us, it's a totally solid jazz album, with a quality level that was hardly ever matched by Getz ...
