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.
A beautiful little record that's one of the toughest to find by Charlie Mariano, and which represents a rare "with orchestra" session that was put together by a young Don Sebesky! The backing's got all the moody overtones that show up in Sebesky's best arranging, and the group includes ... LP, Vinyl record album
A classic live set from trumpeter Marvin Hannibal Peterson – done with two side-long tracks that really let the group stretch out in a very spiritual way! The performance was captured at the Antibes festival in 1977 – and Hannibal's leading a relatively stripped-down group – with ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of Cecil Taylor's most spiritual sessions of the 70s – a live set recorded in Yugoslavia in 1976, and done with this really open sound, but one that comes as much from the horns as it does from Cecil's piano! In fact, we might well say that the horns are the best attraction here – ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of the coolest, grooviest albums we've ever heard from vibist Dave Friedman – a set that really lives up to the promise we sometimes expect from other records of his, but never find this clearly! Friedman plays both marimba and vibes – the latter with this bold, chromatic quality ... LP, Vinyl record album
A beautiful little album that's as sparely evocative as its title! Ken McIntyre's playing a wonderful Dolphy-inspired assortment of reeds that include alto sax, flute, oboe, and bassoon – working with a quartet that includes Jaki Byard on piano, Reggie Workman on bass, and Andrei Strobert on ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great Horace Silver album – and one of the rarest! The record features some top-line material that virtually defines Silver's post-Jazz Messengers sound – tracks that come out with a hard and heavy groove, yet which also have a lightness in the mix too – a sense of play and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Classic bop work from Charlie Ventura – recorded with a large band that includes Neal Hefti, Bennie Green, Bill Harris, Tony Scott, and Jackie Cain on vocals. With a lineup like that, it's hard to miss – and the album's filled with the kind of raw energy that made Ventura a surprising ... LP, Vinyl record album
A wonderfully spiritual set from Clifford Thornton – recorded in 1974 in New York, with a compelling lineup of underground avant and soul jazzers, plus a few more famous names. There's a lot of percussion on the set – played by Milton Cardona, Jerry Gonzales, Asante Darkwa, and others ... LP, Vinyl record album
Art Blakey's soundtrack to this fantastic French film is one of his best non-Blue Note albums ever – and it's got the additional bonus of featuring performances by the great French tenor star Barney Wilen! The tunes here are way more than just short scene-setting soundtrack numbers – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Supremely heavy work from organist Leon Spencer – one of his classic jazz funk sessions for Prestige Records, and a record that shows him opening up his sound a bit more than before! The album has Spencer working in a few different lineups – some with small groups that feature Melvin ... LP, Vinyl record album
A tasty batch of funky jazz cuts from Ivan Boogaloo Joe Jones – working here in a tight guitar groove that's actually better than that heard on his early albums for Prestige! The group's a good one – with Rusty Bryant on tenor, Butch Cornell on organ, and Grady Tate on drums – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Beautiful work from the Mastersounds – that group that featured the brothers of Wes Montgomery – Buddy on vibes and Monk on bass – with Richie Crabtree on piano! Titles include a great long vibes-heavy take on "Golden Earrings", plus "There Is No Greater Love" ... LP, Vinyl record album
