Profile

LP (Item 59879) Sire, 1972 — Condition: Very Good+

Very heavy stuff from guitarist Jan Akkerman – almost more rock than jazz, with a hard-on jamming style that was the heaviest the European scene had to offer at the time! Some tracks have a bit of funky rhythm, but the real focus here is on the guitar – not only the jamming electric, but also Spanish guitar, alto lute, and a bit of bass on a few tracks – played with some sensitive acoustic complexity that really expands the emotive feel of the record. Other players include Ferry Maat on piano, Bert Ruiter on bass, and Pierre Van Der Linden on drums – and titles include "Stick", "Minstrel/Farmers Dance", "Kemps Jig", "Etude", "Maybe Just A Dream", and the extended "Fresh Air" suite.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light wear and a small cutout hole.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • 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.

Pharoah Sanders

Karma
Impulse, 1969. Very Good Gatefold
Quite possibly the best-remembered album from Pharoah Sanders' legendary run at Impulse Records – a set that crossed over big, and sold to countless folks who might not have bought a jazz album this hip otherwise! The record was Sanders' first in the wake of Coltrane's passing – and it' ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lol Coxhill

Ear Of The Beholder
Dandelion/Ampex, 1971. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
One of the weirdest, most wonderful albums ever cut by saxophonist Lol Coxhill – way more than just improvised jazz, and exactly the best sort of a record to show his connection to the larger British music scene! The feel here is a bit like the albums that Coxhill recorded with Steve Miller ... LP, Vinyl record album

Art Blakey

Big Beat
Blue Note, 1960. Near Mint-
One of the greatest Art Blakey Blue Note sessions of all time – and perhaps one of the greatest to realize the genius of the Jazz Messengers lineup that included Lee Morgan on trumpet, Wayne Shorter on tenor, and Bobby Timmons on piano! The trio of young talents are at the height of their ... LP, Vinyl record album
Impulse/ABC, Mid 60s/1973. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
Nice 2LP set of Mingus' work for Impulse, with a fair complement of stuff that he did for the label – including the entire LP's worth of material from Black Saint & The Sinner Lady (which is always his toughest to find). This is a nice cheaply priced way to get that LP, and to get some ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Coltrane

Cosmic Music
Impulse, 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold
A set that really earns its title – as it's easily some of the most cosmic music John Coltrane ever recorded – and also kind of a way of saying goodbye to the planet, to leave his music in the hands of a next generation of creators! The album features material recorded by a Coltrane ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tony Williams Lifetime

Turn It Over
Polydor, 1970. Very Good
Although Tony Williams started out as one of the most subtle drummers of the 60s, this album has him coming a long way from his "new thing" Blue Note recordings – and taking off with enough power to reach the moon! The group featured is Williams classic Lifetime lineup – with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Charles Mingus

Changes One
Atlantic, 1975. Very Good
A great little 70s session from Mingus – the first in the 2-part Changes set – and whether you collect those jointly or separately, they contain some of his best work from the period The sessions were recorded with a small group that includes George Adams, Don Pullen, and Jack Walrath. ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mercury, 1962. Very Good
A beautiful set of tracks that features Art Farmer soloing on flugelhorn over larger arrangements by Oliver Nelson. Farmer's work on the instrument was just taking shape at this point in his career, and the soulful backings of Nelson are a really great match for his lyrical tone, and widening ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good
Very moody stuff – especially for the time it was recorded! The album came out in the late 60s, a time when most guitarists were plugging in, fuzzing out, and really getting crazy – but George Van Eps was still keeping his cool, playing gently swinging lines on his unique 7 string ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mariachi Brass with Chet Baker

Double Shot
World Pacific, Late 60s. Very Good+
A very strange chapter in Chet Baker's career – one that has him blowing the lead trumpet in World Pacific's Mariachi Brass – a group that was clearly designed as a Herb Alpert ripoff! The album's actually pretty nice, thanks to arrangements by George Tipton that sway and swing – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Steve Miller Band

Sailor
Capitol, 1968. Very Good+
A classic set that really helps put the Steve Miller sound on the map – a wonderful blend of tightness and easy going energy that makes the group one of the greatest things going from San Francisco at the time! Some tunes have this burning quality that's completely sublime – while ... LP, Vinyl record album
