TV Action Jazz

LP (Item 575490) RCA, 1959 — Condition: Very Good

A wonderful set of pulpy groovers from Mundell Lowe – leading an incredible combo of players on well known action themes from the late 50s! The set has a really great lineup, with Donald Byrd on trumpet, Jimmy Cleveland on trombone, Eddie Costa on piano, and Tony Scott on clarinet and baritone sax – all playing with a great mix of modes to fit the themes – rolling action jazz one moment, a bluesy, pulpy groove at another – with all of those textbook dramatic scores we'll love to infinity! Tracks include "Peter Gunn", "Mike Hammer Riff Blues", "77 Sunset Strip", "M Squad", and "Naked City".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has small seam splits and some surface wear.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.
