Thoroughly Modern

LP (Item 596181) ABC, Late 60s — Condition: Near Mint-

Thiele plays with his new Happy Times Orchestra, with arrangements by Glen Osser and Tommy Goodman. Also features Teresa Brewer, Steve Allen, and The Happy Girls including Valerie Simpson.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono pressing. Cover has a small cutout hole.)

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.

Keith Jarrett

Shades
ABC/Impulse, 1976. Near Mint-
A lost gem from Keith's "with horns" period – a quintet session from the mid 70s, recorded with a group that features Dewey Redman on tenor, plus Charlie Haden on bass, Paul Motian on drums and percussion, and Guilherme Franco on additional percussion. The feel is a bit straighter ... LP, Vinyl record album

Count Basie & Alan Copeland Singers

Basie Swingin, Voices Singin
ABC, 1966. Very Good
With Freddie Greene on guitar, George Duvivier on bass, Eddie Shaughnessy on drums, Roy Eldridge on trumpet, Al Grey and Billy Byers on trombone, and Eddie Lockjaw Davis on tenor sax. LP, Vinyl record album

Erroll Garner

Dreamstreet (80s issue)
ABC, 1961. Near Mint-
Garner grooves nicely here – finding an almost renewed energy for the 60s, but still hitting all those highly-rhythmic modes we love so much in his early work! The recording quality is great – lots of bold echo from the piano, and even a bit of Erroll's grunting vocalizations somewhere ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dave McKenna

Solo Piano
ABC, 1955. Very Good
Dave's 1955 debut for ABC Records – a date that features McKenna playing 13 shorter tunes – all handled in solo mode with a wonderfully sensitive touch – one that's never too sleepy, but which has a personal, up-close style that's really great. Dave nicely avoids cliches of other ... LP, Vinyl record album

Shelly Manne & His Men

Jazz Gunn
Atlantic, 1967. Near Mint-
Shelly Manne scored big with a jazz version of the Peter Gunn soundtrack in the 50s – and he does it again in this 60s version of Henry Mancini's music for the full-length Gunn movie! The style here is a bit more far-reaching and looser than before – showing not just Manne's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Billy Larkin & The Delegates

Ain't That A Groove
World Pacific, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
One of the greatest records ever cut by organist Billy Larkin – a lean, mean batch of soul jazz instrumentals, recorded with the Delegates combo, featuring tenor work by a young Fats Theus! The tracks are short tight jazz dancers – with a mixture of stepping grooves and some more full ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sweet Earth, 1979. Near Mint-
A great late 70s session by Sun Ra – released on the small Sweet Earth label, recorded in 1979, with a version of the Arkestra that includes John Gilmore on tenor, Marshall Allen on alto, Eddie Gale on trumpet, and June Tyson on vocals – plus Sun Ra himself on Fender Rhodes, percussion, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cecil Taylor/Buell Neidlinger

New York City R&B
Candid, 1961. Near Mint-
An early 60s session by Cecil Taylor for Candid, and a record that's one of our favorites by him from the early years! Despite the seemingly odd use of the term "R&B" in the title, the record's actually got a sound that's a bit more soulful than usual for Cecil, with surprising use ... LP, Vinyl record album

Shelly Manne

Three/Two
Contemporary, 1954. Near Mint-
A 12" LP that brings together 2 different earlier 10" sessions by Manne – groundbreaking work in a freer mode than most of what was going on in LA during the mid 50s! Side one features material from The Three – a 10" session that featured Manne on drums, Shorty Rogers on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Oscar Peterson

We Get Requests
Verve, 1964. Very Good
A key example of the popularity of the Oscar Peterson Trio in the mid 60s – an album of tracks that listeners wanted to hear done in the group's familiar style! The tunes are simple ones, mostly standards and 60s covers – but they're done by Oscar, Ray Brown, and Ed Thigpen in a mode ... LP, Vinyl record album

Duke Jordan/Sadik Hakim

East & West Of Jazz
Charlie Parker, 1962. Near Mint-
An overlooked bit of piano genius from the 60s – a split LP with great work from both artists! Sadik kicks things off with the "east" side of the record – tunes that have a supposedly exotic feel, but which are mostly soul jazz piano groovers – performed by a quartet ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1961. Very Good Gatefold
Strong work from the Peterson Trio's London House gig in Chicago in 1961 – material that offers some slightly longer than usual takes on the group's sound, especially on a few numbers that really let Oscar open up on the keys! The group here is the legendary combo with Ed Thigpen on drums ... LP, Vinyl record album
