Max Roach Quartet – Live In Tokyo Vol 1

LP (Item 575467) Denon (Japan), 1977 — Condition: Near Mint-

Beautiful sounds from the ultra-hip Max Roach Quartet of the mid 70s – a lineup that features Billy Harper on tenor, Cecil Bridgewater on trumpet, and Reggie Workman on bass! Tracks are long – very much in the Harper style of the time – and titles include "It's Time", "Calvary", and "Round Midnight".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes insert!)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

Max Roach

Many Sides Of Max
Mercury, Early 60s. Very Good
A great record – and one that's a lot more unified than the title might make you think! The set has Max post-Clifford Brown, post-the hardbop group that followed Brown, in his more searching soulful mode, playing with some steller younger talents like Booker Little, George Coleman, Julian ... LP, Vinyl record album
EmArcy, Late 50s. Very Good-
Incredible material from Max's "plus 4" group that included Ray Draper, George Coleman, Booker Little, and Art Davis! The band at the time was forging a haunting mix of hardbop and lyrical modernism, and was driven by Max's progressive vision and rich talent for selecting just the right ... LP, Vinyl record album
Denon (Japan), 1978. Near Mint-
A silly title but a great record – a rare Japanese-only album from pianist Mickey Tucker, and a session that's better than even most of his American work from the time! Tucker's working here with a larger group than usual – in a soaring, spiritual, soul jazz sort of way – one ... LP, Vinyl record album

Billy Harper

Knowledge Of Self
Denon (Japan), 1979. Near Mint-
Beautiful, just plain beautiful. This rare Japanese-only session stands as one of Billy Harper's finest LPs from the 70's, and it's a beautiful mix of a soul jazz consciousness with strident post-Coltrane yearnings. Each side features one long track that lets Billy, trumpeter Everett Hollins, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jo Jones

Our Man Papa Jo
Denon (Japan), 1978. Near Mint-
Tight later work from Jo Jones – a set that's got all the swinging energy of the early years, but also a relaxed vibe that's mighty nice too! There's a good quality to the recording – as it's one of those killer 70s sessions done for Denon in Japan – and Jones is clearly in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Elvin Jones

Soul Train
Denon (Japan), 1980. Near Mint-
Soulful intensity from Elvin Jones and his Jazz Machine! Soul Train is of the many great originally import-only sessions that Jones cut with his Jazz Machine group during the late 70s – an ensemble who in this case featured Andrew White on alto, and Ari Brown on tenor and soprano. Like most ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, Early 50s. Sealed 2LP Gatefold
A 2LP set that brings together most of the material from the first three full-length albums by the Modern Jazz Quartet – all recorded at a time when the combo were first forging their famous sound! Most of the sides here are in contrast to the group's better-known Atlantic work, because the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Marc Johnson's Bass Desires

Second Sight
ECM, 1987. Sealed
Dark work from the quartet Bass Desires – a combo that draws heavily on the rumbling sounds of bassist Marc Johnson, then fills in the spaces with twin guitars from Bill Frisell and John Scofield, and also features a bit of drums from Peter Erskine! Some of the sounds here echo more abstract ... LP, Vinyl record album
Pacific Jazz, Mid 50s. Very Good
A great no-nonsense session from Chet – blowing here with Russ Freeman on piano, blocking out backgrounds that work perfectly with the fragile tone of Chet's horn. The rest of the group features Carson Smith on bass and Larry Bunker on drums – and titles include "Bea's Flat", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Count Basie

Best Of Basie
Roulette, Early 60s. Sealed
Great work from Basie's Roulette years – a time when the group seemed to be extra snapping and soulful! Players include Frank Foster, Frank Wess, and Billy Mitchell on reeds – plus Snooky Young, Thad Jones, and Joe Newman on trumpets – and Al Grey, Henry Coker, and Benny Powell ... LP, Vinyl record album
Commodore, Late 30s/Early 40s. Sealed
Classic work from Chu Berry's years on Commodore – with work from Roy Eldridge and Hot Lips Page on trumpet – and some unissued tracks as well! LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1939/1940. Sealed
Essential is right – as the tracks here are all Vocalion and Columbia 78rpm releases – from a time when Lester Young was in the group on tenor, and Buck Clayton on trumpet! LP, Vinyl record album
