Night Hawk

CD (Item 562193) Swingville/OJC, 1960 — Condition: Used
$14.99 ...

CD

Beautiful late work from Coleman Hawkins – mellow genius that wins us over time and time again over the years! The set's actually a twin-tenor outing – with both Hawk and Eddie Jockjaw Davis – the latter of whom, as proved with Johnny Griffin and others, is a perfect partner for any other player on his horn – one able to slide in just the right way, augmenting things and adding his voice while never overdoing it. Given the long tracks on the record, and the very easygoing rhythms from Tommy Flanagan on piano, Ron Carter on bass, and Gus Johnson on drums – you've got a cracker of a record, and one that yeilds more and more upon each new listen! Titles include "There Is No Greater Love", "Night Hawk", "In A Mellow Tone", and "Pedalin".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

Montgomery Brothers

Groove Yard
Riverside/OJC, 1961. Used
Ah for the genius of the Montgomery Brothers – a sweet combo from the Indy scene that featured Wes Montgomery alongside brothers Monk and Buddy! Wes is on guitar, natch, Buddy plays piano, Monk bass, and Bobby Thomas joins the group on drums – all grooving in a style that's a bit like ... CD

Charlie Rouse

Takin Care Of Business
Jazzland/OJC, 1960. Used
Great session of deeply soulful tenor work, featuring Rouse in a group with Blue Mitchell, Walter Bishop, Earl May, and Art Taylor. At this point in his career, Rouse is in his pre-Monk days – but beginning to experiment heavily with a more modernist approach to hardbop. The results are ... CD
Contemporary/OJC, 1960. Used
A previously unreleased live date from late in the career of Ben Webster – recorded at The Renaissance in Hollywood in 1960, but unissued until nearly 25 years later! The group features Jim Hall on guitar, Jimmy Rowles on piano, Red Mitchell on bass, and Frank Butler on drums – and ... CD

Chuck & Gap Mangione – The Jazz Brothers

Hey Baby
Riverside/OJC, 1961. Used
Great early work from two jazz brothers who'd go onto great later fame – Chuck Mangione on trumpet and Gap Mangione on piano – also working here with the great Sal Nistico on tenor! The record already shows their songwriting and arranging strings, although in a small combo mode that's ... CD

Jackie McLean

Makin' the Changes
New Jazz/OJC, 1957. Used
Sweet and to-the-point work from a young Jackie McLean – the kind of hard-burning yet slightly-modern work he recorded best for Prestige in the late 50s! The album's a bit of a blowing session outing – with 2 different groups, one a sextet with Curtis Fuller, Webster Young, and Gil ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1966. Used
One of the most fantastic Booker Ervin albums from the sixties – a really soulful set that combines his gutsy tenor with some crackling fresh modern touches! Booker's working here with a larger group than usual – a sextet that creates a bit more of an ensemble feel than usual – ... CD

Jackie McLean

McLean's Scene
New Jazz/OJC, Late 50s. Used
McLean's Scene is a strong one – as the young Jackie is really coming into his own at the time of the session, blowing and growing with a soulful command of the alto sax that would emerge even more strongly in the 60s. The album's got McLean working in a slightly open-ended way – ... CD
Contemporary/OJC, 1960. Used
Classic hardbop from the west coast – a set of live recordings done at the Black Hawk jazz club in San Francisco at the end of the 50s, featuring Shelly Manne at the head of a group that includes the great Joe Gordon on trumpet! Tracks are longer, livelier, and have a lot more solo room and ... CD
Contemporary/OJC, 1961. Used
A really nice set from Shelly Manne! After having a bit of a minor hit with a crime jazz album dedicated to the music of Peter Gunn, Shelly and combo turn towards a less-remembered TV cop show for more music in a similar vein. Checkmate was a short-lived show from the early 60s, but it had a ... CD

John Coltrane

Standard Coltrane
Prestige/OJC, 1958. Used
The title may say "standard", but with Coltrane at the helm, the record is anything but! Sure, the tunes are all familiar ones, but the presentation here is a far cry from mainstream piano jazz of the 50s – as John's working in a group with the Red Garland trio for rhythm, as well ... CD

Kidd Jordan/Joel Futterman/William Parker/Hamid Drake

Tribute To Alvin Fielder – Live At Vision Festival 24
Mahakala, 2020. Used
A mighty heavy group – paying tribute to the late drummer Alvin Fiedler – working with the kind of fierce improvisation that Fiedler would have really loved! Tenorist Kidd Jordan was a frequent musical partner of Alvin on record – and the group here really recreates some of the ... CD

John Coltrane

Meditations
Impulse, 1966. Used
An album that's quite different than you might expect from the title – one of the most adventurous records issued on Impulse during the life of John Coltrane! The tracks here are all quite free and far-reaching – hardly the mellow "meditations you might expect – and more the ... CD
