LP (Item 58087) Jazzland, 1961 — Condition: Very Good
(€21.18 || £18.65 || ¥2793) (approx.)

Nice and rarely seen trio side from under-recorded Chicago pianist Anderson. He plays here with Bill Lee and either Walter Perkins or Philly Joe Jones on drums, in a trio that made the core of the rhythm section on Frank Strozier's excellent Jazzland date, Long Night. The group is in fine form here, running through both standards and originals, and though Anderson's name isn't as well known as many other pianists, it ought to be, and he was no stranger to other Windy City jazz greats such as Johnny Griffin. Imagine a cross between Bill Evans and Elmo Hope, and you might get a picture of where he's coming from, though Anderson's voice is all his own, weaving some nice sinuous lines on a set that leans heavily on ballads here, including "You'd Be Nice To Come Home To", "My Funny Valentine" and the originals "See You Saturday" & the title track. (Orange label Jazzland pressing with deep groove. Cover has some edge wear.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Sonny's Time
Jazzland, Late 50s/1962. Very Good
Nice batch of tracks that had been recorded earlier in Rollins career (during the late 50s), but which were unearthed in 1962 in an effort to cash in on Rollins' return to jazz playing. Even though the motivation behind the album was a bit mercenary, though, it's a nice thing that it came out ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Jubilee
Jazzland, 1960. Near Mint-
A soul jazz masterpiece – and one of the rarest albums on the Jazzland label! Tenorist Joe Alexander has a mean, raw tone on the set – clearly influenced by the early 60s soul jazz generation, but also with some nicely off-beat tones that give him a really unique feel. He's backed ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jazzland, Late 40s/1962. Very Good+
Very sharp LP issue of some of the legendary late 40's bop recordings that were cut in New York under the leadership of Tadd Dameron! The groups are all pretty darn smoking, and the record features some classic work by Fats Navarro, Allan Eager, and Kenny Clarke. Tracks are longer than the usual ... LP, Vinyl record album
Take Twelve
Jazzland, 1962. Near Mint-
A rare non-Blue Note outing from Lee Morgan – and a record that's sometimes mistaken as a large group effort because of the "twelve" in the title, but which is a tight small group set that's equally cooking as some of Lee's better known records! As with the best mid 60s Blue Note ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jazzland, Late 40s. Very Good+
First volume of sessions originally recorded for radio on acetates, then transferred to tape in 1961 and released as 2 albums on the Jazzland label in the early 60s. The sides are noteworthy in that they offer some important early performances by Navarro – working with the Tadd Dameron band ... LP, Vinyl record album
Whisper Not
Jazzland, 1958. Very Good+
A surprisingly wonderful set from Wynton Kelly – really fluid and swinging, and with a unique approach on half the material! The core group of the set features Kenny Burrell on guitar, Paul Chambers on bass, and Philly Joe Jones on drums – but then Jones sits it out on the second side ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cruisin' Featuring The Rhythm Sections
Jazzland, Late 50s. Good+
A pretty cool-looking Jazzland album that combines tracks from 2 other earlier Riverside albums – one that we've identified as Clark Terry's Serenade To A Bus Seat, the other we're not sure of. Side 1 features Kelly, Jones, Paul Chambers, Johnny Griffin, and Clark Terry on the tunes "Sta ... LP, Vinyl record album
Truth!
Prestige, 1970. Very Good
One of Houston Person's first forays into the jazz funk sound that other Prestige Records players were picking up at the time – a sweet little set with some nicely extended tunes! The groove here is a bit harder than some of Person's previous soul jazz sets – with some tightly snapping ... LP, Vinyl record album
You Had Better Listen
Atlantic, 1967. Near Mint-
An oft-overlooked and surprisingly soulful session on Atlantic – a sublime pairing of the talents of trumpeter Jimmy Owens and pianist Kenny Barron! The set's got a groove that's pretty unique – not really Blue Note or Prestige – but not like other Atlantic Records jazz as well ... LP, Vinyl record album
Back To The Roots
Cadet, Late 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of Ramsey's excellent late 60s funky piano records for Cadet – featuring his second trio with Cleveland Eaton on bass and Morris Jennings on drums, and a sound that's nicely expanded from the mid 60s hit years. Charles Stepney plays a bit of organ on the album, and Henry Gibson gives the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sketches Of Spain
Columbia, 1960. Near Mint-
A beautiful collaboration between Miles Davis and the great Gil Evans – and perhaps the most perfectly realized of all their projects! The album's got a wonderfully unified feel – as it begins with long compositions that have a distinct Spanish-tinge (and not a Latin-tinge, which is an ... LP, Vinyl record album
Rakin' & Scrapin'
Prestige, 1969. Near Mint-
Excellent work from pianist Harold Mabern – a strong talent whose lyrical powers graced the MJT sides from Chicago on Vee Jay in the early 60s, and a player who also worked on some great Blue Note sessions in the mid 60s. This set is possibly his strongest for Prestige – a tight, hard ... LP, Vinyl record album
