Hawk In Germany

LP (Item 568082) Black Lion, 1960 — Condition: Very Good+

(Cover has a cut corner and light surface wear.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Stephane Grappelli & Barney Kessel

I Remember Django
Black Lion, 1969. Near Mint-
An album that has European jazz great Stephane Grapelli revising the format of his legendary Hot Club Of France with guitarist Django Reinhardt – but in a very different mode, given that this group features electric guitar from Barney Kessel! Kessel is great, and his warm, round tones do ... LP, Vinyl record album

Thelonious Monk

London Collection Vol 2
Black Lion, 1971. Sealed
Very late work from the legendary Thelonious Monk – but surprisingly great as well! The session was recorded in London – as you might guess from the title – and although Monk's not working with his regular quartet with Charlie Rouse, he does interact wonderfully with a trio that ...

Barney Kessel

Swinging Easy
Black Lion, 1968. Near Mint-
Really nice work from guitarist Barney Kessel – one of his overlooked late 60s sessions from a time when the musician was really opening up his sound! Barney's working with a British trio here – John Marshall on drums and Kenny Napper on bass – and there's a nice sense of tone ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stanley Turrentine

Let It Go
Impulse, 1966. Very Good+ Gatefold
A rare non-Blue Note 60s date as a leader from Stanley Turrentine – recorded for Impluse when his (then) wife Shirley Scott was contracted to the label – and featuring the talents of both players on some very groovy tracks! The quartet features both Stan's tenor and Shirley's Hammond ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stanley Turrentine

Mr Natural
Blue Note, 1964/1980. Very Good+
The title's not a reference to Robert Crumb's famous comix character – and instead, it's a great name for this unreleased batch of work from Stanley Turrentine – a perfect summation for the easygoing soul that's always made Stan so great! The group's a nice bridge between the two ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dave Burrell

La Vie De Boheme
BYG/Actuel (France), 1969. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of the most unusual sessions for BYG/Actuel – and one of the greatest as well! The set features Dave Burrell's recasting of Puccini's opera as a platform for jazz improvisation – done in a surprisingly contemplative mode that makes the album one of the most lyrical and sensitive ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note (Japan), Early 50s/1983. Near Mint-
Out of print Japanese Blue Note LP that brings together both of the excellent Howard McGhee sessions for the label. Both of the records were originally issued only on 10" LPs, but they're both here in full, on a 12" LP, with a side devoted to each record. The quality of the material is ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jazzland, 1960. Near Mint-
An excellent album by Dexter Gordon – his first after a number of years spent without recording in the late 50s, and one that marked a real return to serious growth as a player during the 60s! The album takes the same approach as Dexter's soon to be recorded Blue Note classics – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dave Brubeck

Angel Eyes
Columbia, 1965. Very Good+
Beautiful later work by the Dave Brubeck Quartet – an overlooked gem from their 60s Columbia sessions, and an album that features interpretations of tunes written by the great Matt Dennis! Dennis had a way with a tune that often put dark corners in the back of lovely melodies – and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rodney Franklin

Endless Flight
Columbia, 1981. Very Good+
Rodney Franklin never let us down during his entire run for Columbia – and like his others for the label, this set's a brilliant mix of jazz, soul, and fusion – smoothed together nicely, but never in a way that's slick or commercial! Franklin's got a keen ear that lets him sit on both ... LP, Vinyl record album

Isaac Hayes

Groove-A-Thon
Hot Buttered Soul/ABC, 1976. Very Good+ Gatefold
After leaving Stax, Ike seemed to be trying to turn himself into more of a Barry White-style artist – with more emphasis on original tracks about love and loving, instead of his older method of transforming pop hits into little baroque symphonies. On a record like this, the approach meant ... LP, Vinyl record album
