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.
Plenty of fire here – a soulful, spiritul sort of energy that really sets the work of Billy Bang apart from any other players on his instrument! Bang's use of the violin here is really unique – almost as a fluid generator of tone and sound – one that's woven beautifully into ... LP, Vinyl record album
A really sharp little album from Steve Lacy – recorded with a trio that features Bobby Few on piano and Dennis Charles on drums! There's a sense of force to the record that grabs you right away – a punch from Charles' drums and Few's piano, which is peppered strongly by Lacy's soprano ... LP, Vinyl record album
A very hip little set – not just because of the players, but also because of the choice of material! Half the tracks are Monk compositions, and the other half by Herbie Nichols – so the record's filled with angular, modern tones that echo back to some key jazz moments of the postwar ... LP, Vinyl record album
A pretty electric set from reedman Jimmy Giuffre – a record that moves between fusion touches and some of the freer modes of Giuffre's later years! Jimmy himself is all acoustic – working on flute, soprano, tenor, and clarinet – but the group also features a fair bit of keyboards ... LP, Vinyl record album
Open, swinging live work from the George Adams/Don Pullen Quartet – and a set that shows both the group's sense of jazz tradition, and their willingness to play with it on their own terms! The tracks here are all quite long, jamming numbers – built on lively rhythms from the bass of ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great ode to Dannie Richmond's longtime musical partner Charles Mingus – who'd passed shortly before this session – done with styles and sounds that are quite different than some of Richmond's other work! The album's got a definite blue tone – Richmond really feeling Mingus' ... LP, Vinyl record album
Art Farmer really found a great home for his music on the Soul Note label in the 80s – a place where he could continue to grow strongly, in ways that almost let him find a new sort of edge in his horn! This album's a wonderful example of the strengths that Farmer found at the label – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Great work by one of the grooviest groups on the LA 60s scene! The Afro Blues Quintet have a blend of soul jazz and Latin styles that's similar to the best 60s work by Cal Tjader, or to records by small combos like the Quartette Tres Bien or The Latin Jazz Quintet. Lots of grooves have a nice ... LP, Vinyl record album
Two generations of Ornette Coleman – making incredible music here together! The album's a freewheeling late 60s outing from the senior Ornette – who plays alto, violin, and trumpet here – working with his young son Ornette D Coleman on drums, just 12 years old at the time – ...
