Special Edition

LP (Item 573327) Island, 1976 — Condition: Very Good+
2LP Gatefold

A great 70s set from Paul Horn – played in a style that's a lot straighter than most of his work from the decade! The style here almost recalls the Paul Horn of earlier jazz years – mellow and laidback, with a real sense of space and sound that's influenced clearly by bossa nova and modal jazz of the 60s, but which also tends to have a freer-thinking 70s sound on the more expansive solos. Horn plays a variety of flutes, plus alto sax and clarinet – and he's joined by Lynn Blessing on vibes, Art Johnson on electric guitar, and Bart Hall on drums and percussion. The core of the set is in a jazz-based mode – and features renditions of tracks that include "Freedom Jazz Dance", "Tribute To Jobim", "Just Because We're Kids", "Willow Weep For Me", and "Summertime" – and the last part of the performance features sparer, spacier numbers that include Horn originals "Dusk", "Forms", and "Dawn".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Jupiter 8
Golden Flute, 1983. Near Mint-
... LP, Vinyl record album
World Pacific, Mid 60s. Good+ Gatefold
Easily the trippiest of Paul Horn's 60s experiments – and even more far-reaching than his Paul Horn In India set! This one has a very similar feel to Paul's Indian session, but it's much more transcendental – with long tunes that spin out amidst sitar, tabla, and vocals – going ... LP, Vinyl record album

Paul Horn

Monday Monday
RCA, 1966. Near Mint-
Easy grooving magic from Paul Horn – a record that has his exotic flute work paired up with arrangements by Oliver Nelson – making for a session that's got a lot more punch than usual for Horn – in a mode that we like quite a lot! The flute's in the lead on all tracks, but the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Paul Horn

Inside II
Columbia, 1972. Near Mint- Gatefold
Paul Horn follows up his Inside The Taj Majal set – in someways leaving behind the stark, spare initimacy of that set for a more layered and tailored approach – and also leaving behind his more pronounced jazz roots for a more earthy and nature themed mode! Like Inside, it's a solo ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1965. Near Mint-
One of Paul Horn's groovier albums from the 60s – and a record that features some nice arrangements by Lalo Schifrin! As the title might make you guess, the album's kind of a "jazz mass", and replicates the Kyrie, Gloria, and Offertory progression of a regular Catholic mass. The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Maiden Voyage
Cadet, 1968. Very Good-
One of the key records from the Cadet/Concept scene in late 60s Chicago – a tremendous collaboration between pianist Ramsey Lewis and arranger Charles Stepney – and the kind of record that took soul and jazz to a whole new level! Ramsey on his own is great enough at this point – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lee Morgan

Lee-way
Blue Note, 1960. Sealed
An undisputed masterpiece by Lee Morgan – and one of the first records in which he shed his straight bop sensibility, and began evolving into a soulful genius for the 60s! The album's got 4 long tracks that all build beautifully – really extended numbers that break the format of some ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dizzy Gillespie

Swing Low, Sweet Cadillac
Impulse, 1967. Very Good- Gatefold
A brilliant album of Latiny grooves from Diz! The record takes off from the soulful/modal mood of the early 60s groups with Lalo Schifrin and Kenny Barron – and features a young Mike Longo crafting some fantastic lines on piano, stretched out over tight rhythms on electric bass and drums, ...

Jimmy McGriff

Fly Dude
Groove Merchant, Early 70s. Very Good-
Some great down-home work from Jimmy McGriff – a session that's a bit less funk-based than some of his others for the Groove Merchant label, but still plenty darn great! The set's kind of a nice link between the straighter soul jazz of McGriff's 60s years, and his return to the format at the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Crusaders

Chain Reaction
Blue Thumb, 1975. Very Good- Gatefold
On this one, the Crusaders definitely crossed from jazz into funk – but who cares, because the album's so darn great! The record's got a tight LA groove, with some excellent electric keyboards, sweet sax solos, and tight drumming throughout. True proof that sometimes a lot of money can be ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hampton Hawes

Blues For Walls
Prestige, 1973. Very Good-
Although this session's produced by Orrin Keepnews, it's very much in the stretched-out space funk style of some of the David Axelrod produced Fantasy sessions, although perhaps with some more modal fusion touches. Hawes plays acoustic and electric piano, as well as Arp – and the rest of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
