Road House Boogie

LP (Item 549051) Saxophonograph (Sweden), Late 40s/Early 50s — Condition: Near Mint-
Gatefold

(Cover has some discoloration from age inside the gatefold.)

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.

Big Jay McNeely

Deacon Rides Again
Imperial, Early 50s. Near Mint-
Tenor giant Big Jay McNeely cut his most famous work for King Records – but he sounds equally wonderful here on some rare 78rpm material for Imperial Records too! Most tracks are originals – although two have vocals from a young Jesse Belvin, and two more feature guest work from Mercy ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fantasy, Early 60s. Near Mint-
Compilation of Cal Tjader's Latin sides for Fantasy, with a lot of cool late 50's material like "Mambo Terrifico", "Ritmo Caliente", "Bonita", and "Tumbao". There's a few other jazz cuts on here, but the Latin stuff is what makes it, and the playing's great ... LP, Vinyl record album

McCoy Tyner

Expansions
Blue Note, Late 60s. Near Mint-
A really mindblowing session from McCoy Tyner – perfectly titled "Expansions" to showcase the change in his style at the time! The record is one of Tyner's first larger group efforts – and is a brilliant example of the expansion of his talents in the post-Coltrane years ... LP, Vinyl record album
Contemporary, 1958. Very Good-
An excellent album recorded during the height of Benny Golson's powers as an arranger and tenor soloist! Benny leads two groups – a quintet and a nontet – both of which feature players that include Art Farmer, Wynton Kelly, Sahib Shihab, Gigi Gryce, and Paul Chambers – working ...

Jimmy Owens-Kenny Barron Quintet

You Had Better Listen
Atlantic, 1967. Very Good
An oft-overlooked and surprisingly soulful session on Atlantic – a sublime pairing of the talents of trumpeter Jimmy Owens and pianist Kenny Barron! The set's got a groove that's pretty unique – not really Blue Note or Prestige – but not like other Atlantic Records jazz as well ... LP, Vinyl record album
ABC, 1956. Very Good+
One of the grooviest 50s albums ever from the legendary Zoot Sims – a session that uses overdubbing to let Zoot create a one man horn section – blowing on record at the same time on alto, tenor, and baritone sax! The approach is far from the gimmicky sound that you might expect – ... LP, Vinyl record album

McCoy Tyner

Trident
Milestone, 1975. Near Mint-
A nice 70s trio side with Tyner's lyrical, spiraling piano lines nicely underpinned by Elvin Jones' polyrhythms and Ron Carter's supple bass. Three Tyner originals: "Celestial Chant", "Elvin (Sir) Jones" and "Land Of The Lonely", plus Trane's "Impressions", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Leon Spencer

Sneak Preview
Prestige, 1971. Very Good+
Forget the preview, because Leon Spencer is already the main attraction on this key early album for Prestige! The date may well be one of the organist's greatest – and is a lean, mean session cut with that stretched out funky style that Prestige was really laying down at the time – ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Coltrane & Johnny Hartman

John Coltrane & Johnny Hartman
Impulse, 1963. Very Good+ Gatefold
A landmark album of vocal jazz – and one of the few sessions that John Coltrane ever cut with a singer! In a way, the album's more Hartman's than it is Coltrane's – given that Johnny's warm, mellow style of singing isn't as free and open as Trane at his most adventurous – but at ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy Smith

Open House
Blue Note, Late 60s. Very Good
Material that was recorded in the early 60s, but not issued by Blue Note until later in the decade – when they were pulling out any Jimmy Smith session they had, in order to compete with the bigger hits on Verve. The record features 4 extended tracks, with an all-star jam session lineup that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Anthony Ortega

New Dance!
Revelation, 1967. Very Good
One of the clearest moments of brilliance ever from saxophonist Anthony Ortega – an album that should stand as one of THE avant jazz sessions of the 60s, but which is sadly often overlooked! Although Ortega first rose to fame quickly in the 50s, his talents were often used in larger backing ... LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Magic

Welcome Back
Capitol, 1981. Near Mint-
A wonderful album – one of the group's best! The album was a "comeback" effort – but it's still got stone Philly production from Norman Harris, with a sound that's right up their with their best Atco sides from the mid 70s. In fact, the harmonies are even better than before, ... LP, Vinyl record album
