Buddy's in Miami – but that doesn't mean he's on vacation – as the set's a hard burner that ranks as one of his best sides for Verve of the 50s! The set was recorded live at the Dream Bar at the Johnina Hotel in Miami – and Buddy's leading an interesting groove that includes Verve wailer Flip Phillips on tenor sax, plus the much more understated Peter Ind on bass and Ronnie Ball on piano. The combination of players in the quartet makes for a very interesting sound – as at some points it seems as if Phillips and Rich are taking off entirely on their own – making for a tenor/drum groove that's mighty nice! Tracks include "Lover Come Back To Me", "Topsy", "Undecided", "Broadway", and "Jumpin At The Woodside". The CD also features a full bonus album – Rock With Flip, originally issued under the leadership of Flip Phillips in 1954. The album's not entirely what you might think from the title – a bit less of the raunchy R&B that its name might imply – but it's still one of Flip Phillips' classic 50s sessions for Verve, all of which are great! The group here is a quintet – with Oscar Peterson on piano, Herb Ellis on guitar, Ray Brown on bass, and Buddy Rich on drums – all working in great mid 50s Verve mode, with a relaxed, swinging style that sets things up nicely for Flip. Tracks are a bit shorter, with more of a focus on the leader than some other Verve dates – and titles include "Lemon Aid 21", "All Of Me", "Almost Like Being In Love", and "Singing The Blues".  © 1996-2020, 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.

Boss
Verve, 1968. Used
A great little small combo record that proves that Jimmy was still hitting strong in the late 60s!
