Miles Davis At Carnegie Hall – The Legendary Performance Of May 19, 1961

LP (Item 58247) Columbia, 1961 — Condition: Near Mint-

Sparkling live work from Miles Davis – and a set that captures both sides of his talents on Columbia at the time! Half the material features a smoking quintet – with Hank Mobley on tenor, Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums – and the other half of the date features a larger orchestra led by Gil Evans – in the modern mode that make the Miles/Evans collaborations sound so great on some of the pair's studio records! Together, the material offers up a beautiful live portrait of Davis' early 60s genius – allowed a bit more space to roam in the live setting, on titles that include "So What", "New Rhumba", "Lament", and "No Blues" – all taken at a bit of a faster clip than in the studio, as Miles was wont to do in a live performance!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(70s stereo pressing.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • 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.

We Want Miles
Columbia, 1982. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold

Porgy & Bess
Columbia, 1958. Very Good-

Shakti with John McLaughlin

Handful Of Beauty
Columbia, 1976. Near Mint-
John McLaughlin's the only one pictured on the front cover, but the album's definitely still a highly-collaborative effort from the Shakti group – one that's awash in sounds and styles from Indian music! L Shankhar's violin is used almost as strongly as McLaughlin's guitar – with a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Shakti with John McLaughlin

Natural Elements
Columbia, 1977. Near Mint-
Plenty of Natural Elements here – thanks to the Indian roots of the Shakti group!

Stanley Clarke

I Wanna Play For You
Columbia, 1979. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
A wickedly funky album from Stanley Clarke – perhaps his most fully-formed album of the Columbia years, and a set that really brings together his jazz and soul styles! There's a definite R&B vibe going on, but it's also one that's still quite heavy on bass work from Stanley – a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ramsey Lewis

Funky Serenity
Columbia, 1973. Very Good-
Sweet electric funk from Ramsey Lewis! The album's one of his best from the 70s – and it's got Ramsey on Fender Rhodes, electric harpsichord, and other keyboards, grooving away in an open-ended 70s mode that still retains all the heavy soul of his classic work for Chess.

Dex's famous return to New York in the mid 70s – recorded at the Village Vanguard in 1977, and featuring some of his best group-heavy playing of the decade!

Time Out
Columbia, 1959. Very Good-
Easily the crowning moment of genius for the legendary Dave Brubeck Quartet – the moment when all things came together magically, and the group somehow elevated themselves to a whole new level in jazz!
