LP (Item 58087) Jazzland, 1961 — Condition: Used
Just Sold Out!

LP, Vinyl record album

❔

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 surface wear, half split top seam, and some splitting on the bottom seam.)  © 1996-2018, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Tough Tenors
Jazzland, 1960. Near Mint-
Another one of the great Griffin/Davis collaborations from the early 60's, and a tight bit of work with the added appearance of Junior Mance on piano. The two of them manage to ride a groove that straddles the hardbop and soul jazz camps, and they groove along nicely, with well delivered solos ... LP, Vinyl record album
Story Tale
Jazzland, 1961. Very Good+
A brilliant collaboration between Clifford Jordan and Sonny Red! At the time of this recording, Jordan was one of a number of firey young tenor players from Chicago – all of them hard-blowing, with a nice soulful bottom that opened up a bop sound to more moods and emotions – but Jordan ... LP, Vinyl record album
Swingers
Jazzland, Late 50s. Very Good+
An odd little LP that combines 2 different earlier sets for Riverside. The first one features 3 tracks – "Gee", "Kingston Lounge", and "The Boys From Brooklyn" – pulled from Matthew Gee's Jazz By Gee set, a septet recording that featured Kenny Dorham, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Heavyweights
Jazzland, 1961. Very Good+
They sure got the title right on this one, as Sal's playing tenor in a quintet that features all heavyweights, and soul jazz heavyweights too, we might add! The combo features Nat Adderley, Barry Harris, Sam Jones, and Walter Perkins – all of whom make Sal cook a lot more than usual, and who ... LP, Vinyl record album
Bright & Breezy
Jazzland, 1961. Near Mint-
Bright, breezy, and plenty darn soulful – a nice little post-Prestige album that almost has Red Garland returning to the piano with the tightest focus of his earlier years! The trio here features Sam Jones on bass and Charlie Persip on drums – both of whom punctuate the groove with the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Soul Of Hollywood
Jazzland, 1962. Very Good-
One of the best Junior Mance albums from the time – mostly because it's got Melba Liston arranging a larger group to back up Junior on the set! As on most albums of this type, Junior's almost better when he doesn't have to lead a trio – because he can concentrate on bouncing around ... LP, Vinyl record album
East Coast Sounds
Jazzland, 1956. Good
A swinging east coast set featuring the reeds of Zoot Sims, Al Cohn, and Tony Scott. Trigger Alpert is actually the leader on these sides, in spite of the way the album is billed, and he plays bass in a piano-less rhythm section alongside Ed Shaughnessy on drums. The front line also includes Joe ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
George Shearing & The Montgomery Brothers
Jazzland, 1961. Very Good
Some of jazz's most sensitive artists get together in a lyrical set of light-handed ditties. Shearing's piano is a surprisingly nice complement to the vibes/bass/guitar sound of The Montgomery Brothers – and the group is augmented by some nice Latin percussion. Tracks are short, and titles ... LP, Vinyl record album
Takin' Off
Blue Note, 1962. Very Good+
Herbie Hancock is certainly Takin Off at this point in his career – stepping into the limelight with an excellent batch of soul jazz tunes, including the first recording of his classic "Watermelon Man", the one track that probably put all his kids through school! Although that one ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blowin' The Blues Away
Blue Note, 1959. Very Good+
A killer session from Horace's famous quintet that included Blue Mitchell, Junior Cook, Gene Taylor, and Louis Hayes – one of the group's earliest recordings for Blue Note – and also one of their best! The band had a unique mix of rootsy soul jazz playing and more exotic approaches to ... LP, Vinyl record album
Hooter!
Riverside, 1960. Very Good
Hard swingin' British jazz, issued in the US during a brief period when Riverside/Jazzland was toying with import titles. The group's a quintet, with Vic Ash on tenor, Harry Klein on baritone, and Brian Dee on piano. While less famous than some of the other Brit combos of the time, the group's ...
