Second Passport

LP (Item 604613) Atlantic (Germany), 1972 — Condition: Near Mint-

The second album from Klaus Doldinger's Passport – and already the rock-heavy grooves are showing up a bit more than before! Gone is organist Jimmy Jackson, and in his place is keyboardist John Mealing – a really great player who's got a bit of a soaring Brian Auger sort of groove here – one that pushes the whole group right into the stratosphere – propelled by some extra-heavy drum work from Bryan Spring! Doldinger's great as usual on reeds – often inflecting them with a bit of electricity to match the others – and he also shows his strength on the keys by using a bit of moog and electric piano as well. Titles include "Nexus", "The Cat From Katmandu", "Registration O", "Horizon Beyond", and "Mandragota".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(German 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.

Passport

Looking Thru
Atlantic, 1973. Near Mint-
A cosmic leap forward for Passport – a record that's even more keyboard-heavy than some of the group's earlier work, and which stretches out in a spacey sound that's very much in keeping with the cover! The keys here are handled by (yet again) another new player in the group – Kristian ... LP, Vinyl record album

Passport

Infinity Machine
Atco, 1976. Near Mint-
The title's an apt one here – because the Passport groove of the 70s just seems to go on and on – working with machine-like clockwork, at a pace of at least 2 records a year for many years – without any dip in quality of performance or imagination! As with other Passport records, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chris Hinze Combination

Bamboo Magic
Atlantic, 1978. Near Mint-
One of the few American albums issued by this Dutch funky flautist who cut more than his share of heavy discs on the other side of the Atlantic. Hinze was part of the lowland funk scene that included John Lee & Gerry Brown (both of whom are on this record), and his music shares a similar ... LP, Vinyl record album

Modern Jazz Quartet

Fontessa
Atlantic, 1956. Very Good-
A classic set of high-class jazz from the MJQ – one that shows John Lewis' growing compositional skills, and the band's always tight ability to work in a compressed chamber format. Features the extended "Fontessa" suite, plus the tracks "Versailles", "Angel Eyes" ... LP, Vinyl record album

Robin Kenyatta

Stompin' At The Savoy
Atlantic, 1974. Sealed
A great blend of older jazz styles and the sweet 70s funk of Robin Kenyatta – served up with a hip sort of sparkle overall! There's a few familiar jazz modes in here that definitely live up to the spirit of the title – but most of the record is more open, laidback, and somewhat ... LP, Vinyl record album

Herbie Mann

Right Now
Atlantic, 1962. Near Mint-
Another great groover from Herbie's Latin days! The band has a very unusual modal sound, with Herbie's flute next to vibes by Hagood Hardy, guitar by Billy Bean, and percussion by Willie Bobo & Patato Valdes. Includes a nice version of "O Barquino", plus the cuts "Cool ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dave Pell Octet

Jazz & Romantic Places
Atlantic, 1955. Very Good+
Jazz in romantic places, but some pretty groovy ones too – a host of global destinations all referenced in the track selection for the set! Dave Pell's tenor is at the lead on most numbers, but the octet's in fine formation too – arranged by Jack Montrose, Marty Paich, Johnny Mandel, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rufus Harley

Bagpipe Blues
Atlantic, 1966. Very Good-
An amazing record, from an amazing player – the mighty Rufus Harley, heard here on tenor, flute, and soprano sax – as well as bagpipes, his "trademark" instrument! Don't be put off by the bagpipes, though, because Harley plays in a righteous soul jazz groove, and uses the ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Lewis

John Lewis Piano
Atlantic, 1957. Very Good-
One of the strongest sessions recorded by pianist John Lewis in the 50s – a date that shows depths of his talents that run even greater than his work with the Modern Jazz Quartet, quite possibly because is work on piano is at the forefront of the record throughout! There's a sense of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mike Stern

Time In Place
Atlantic, 1988. Near Mint-
With Stern on guitar, Bob Berg on tenor and soprano, Michael Brecker on tenor, Jim Beard on keyboards, Jeff Andrews on bass, Peter Erskine on drums, Don mAlias on percussion, and Don Grolnick on organ. LP, Vinyl record album

Les McCann & Eddie Harris

Swiss Movement
Atlantic, 1969. Very Good
The extremely successful union of two of Atlantic's biggest funky jazz stars, caught live in Switzerland, with the amazing Benny Bailey sitting in on trumpet. The tracks are long and funky, and are virtually a blueprint for pop soul jazz playing of the time – mixing slinky rhythms with some ... LP, Vinyl record album

Shirley Scott

Latin Shadows
Impulse, 1965. Very Good+ Gatefold
A great album from Shirley Scott – with some excellent arrangements by Gary McFarland! We've always felt that Shirley plays best when she's not leading the group – when someone else is handling the arrangements, so that she can groove mightily on her own – and this album is a ...
