Tenors West – Jimmy Giuffre With The Marty Paich Octet

LP (Item 549614) GNP, Mid 50s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 5

A nice little session of LA jazz – with a lot more fire than usual for this sort of set! Part of the reason for that is because Marty Paich's handling the arrangements – giving them a good swing that keeps all players moving in line. Another reason is that Jack "Mr. Bongo" Costanzo's on bongos – giving the set a nice little kick in the back line. Giuffre and Cooper play twin front tenors, and the group's also got horn work by Harry Klee and Bob Enevoldsen. Titles include "Tenors West", "Ballet Du Bongo", "Con-spirito", "Line For Lyons", and "The Dragon".  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.
