Nice Day With Buddy Collette

LP (Item 580081) Contemporary, 1957 — Condition: Very Good+

Buddy Collette shows off his full range of reed skills here – blowing tenor, alto, flute, and clarinet – in varying lineups that include piano from Don Friedman and Clavin Jackson, drums from Shelly Manne, and bass from John Goodman and Leroy Vinnegar!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original yellow label mono pressing, with deep groove. Cover has some light aging, but is nice overall.)

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.

Contemporary, 1977. Near Mint-
A rather late recording for Pepper, but a great one played with some fierceness that you might not expect from the date of the recording. It helps that he's accompanied by a remarkable rhythm section of George Cables, George Mraz and Elvin Jones, all seasoned vets by this point, and playing with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bill Smith

Folk Jazz
Contemporary, 1959. Near Mint-
One of the few sides ever cut as a leader by west coast clarinetist Bill Smith – and a pretty groovy session that has the group performing jazz versions of folk tunes, a gimmick that was used briefly around the same time by players that included Harold Land and Benny Bailey. The quartet ... LP, Vinyl record album
Contemporary, 1956. Very Good
A key early entry in the "jazz meets Broadway" genre – and a record that was so successful, it went onto inspire countless imitations! Shelly Manne's working here in a lightly playful trio setting – alongside Andre Previn on piano and Leroy Vinnegar on bass, in a reading of ... LP, Vinyl record album

George Cables

Phantom Of The City
Contemporary, 1985. Very Good+
With John Heard on bass and Tony Williams on drums – on titles that include "Phantom Of The City", "But He Knows", "Dark Side/Light Side", and "Blue Nights". LP, Vinyl record album

Shelly Manne & Jack Marshall

Sounds Unheard Of!
Contemporary, 1962. Very Good Gatefold
A very cool album that has Shelly Manne and Jack Marshall going nuts on a bunch of percussion, drums, and other odd instruments! Marshall mostly plays spare acoustic guitar, with some very nutty changes – and Manne proves that he's a very adept percussionist way past his usual west coast ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stanley Turrentine

Hustlin'
Blue Note, 1964. Poor
One of Stanley Turrentine's few organ-based sessions for Blue Note – recorded in the company of his wife Shirley Scott, a real cooker on the Hammond who holds it down masterfully here – and great band that's filled out by Kenny Burrell on guitar, Bob Cranshaw on bass and Otis Finch on ... LP, Vinyl record album
World Pacific, Late 60s. Very Good
Les McCann captured live on piano and vocals. Tracks include "The Girl From Ipanema", "Beau J Poo Boo", "Gus Gus", and a nice version of Marv Jenkins' "Big City". LP, Vinyl record album

Hubert Laws

Romeo & Juliet
Columbia, 1976. Very Good+
Forget the Shakespearean reference in the title – which might make you think the whole album's got a Renaissance bent – because the album's a nice bit of funky flute jazz from Hubert Laws, done with the same groovy vibe as some of his earlier albums for the CTI label! The set was ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jeff Lorber Fusion

Wizard Island
Arista, 1980. Near Mint-
A real classic from Jeff Lorber – the kind of record that crossed-over immediately, and had a huge influence on so many different scenes! The style is smooth sweet fusion – of a sort that Lorber virtually helped invent, and so many others helped to ruin in later years – but here, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fuse One

Fuse One
CTI, 1981. Near Mint-
Tight funky fusion from a masterful collective – a great supergroup from the late electric years of the CTI label! The combo features Joe Farrell on tenor, Ronnie Foster and Don Grusin on keyboards, John McLaughlin and Larry Coryell on guitars, Stanley Clarke on bass, and Lenny White, Tony ... LP, Vinyl record album
ABC, 1977. Near Mint-
Sweet, smooth, and soulfully beautiful work from John Klemmer – not as all-out cosmic or trippy as some of his earlier albums for ABC, but with some really nice moments! Klemmer's really got the power of his horn in firm control here – playing with that Eddie Harris-schooled use of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jeffree

Jeffree
MCA, 1979. Near Mint-
This nice soulful sleeper was not that recognized in the 70s, but in the 90s, it's become a huge favorite in the Chicago's steppers scene, thanks to the excellent two-step groover "Love's Gonna Last". It's a great cut, with sweet soulful vocals, and a totally catchy midtempo groove ... LP, Vinyl record album
