Gerry Mulligan Meets Stan Getz (second cover)

LP (Item 611017) Verve, 1958 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.60 5

A great little set that shouldn't work as well as it does! Mulligan's baritone work is cut nicely by Getz's wispy alto – making for a combination of horns that yeilds some wonderful moments that opens both players up more than usual for the time. Titles include "Anything Goes", "Ballad", and "That Old Feeling" – and the rhythm section features Lou Levy, Stan Levey, and Ray Brown. (MGM pressing. Cover has a small sticker in one corner.)  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Warm Wave
Verve, Mid 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold
Warm mellow moody vibes from Cal, with nice sweet orchestrations by Claus Ogerman, who gives the whole thing a nice deep Euro 60's feel. The group includes Hank Jones, Jerome Richardson & Kenny Burrell. The set's mostly ballads, with a number of standards including "I'm Old ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fiorello!
Verve, 1960. Very Good+
A refreshingly new set of tunes for Oscar Peterson to work his magic on – titles pulled from the musical Fiorello, a big hit at the time of recording, but virtually forgotten now! As usual, Peterson makes more with the tunes than might ever have been there in the first place – but it's ... LP, Vinyl record album

West Side Story
Verve, 1962. Near Mint-
The West Side Story score – but handled here by the great Oscar Peterson Trio – in ways that really push the tunes past their Broadway roots! The approach is tight, soulful, and filled with strong lines from Peterson on piano – plus bass by Ray Brown and drums from Ed Thigpen ... LP, Vinyl record album

Weary Blues (Verve pressing)
VSP/Verve, 1958. Very Good+
A landmark meeting of two talents! This rare session has the poet Langston Hughes reading his own jazz-based work, set to arrangements by Charles Mingus, with additional work by Horace Parlan. Hughes' voice is incredible – a bit frail, with a wispy integrity that really opens up his own ... LP, Vinyl record album

At Newport
Verve, 1957. Good+
The Oscar Peterson trio of the 50s – both by itself, and augmented by some great horn work too – all recorded live at the Newport Jazz Festival in 1957! Side one of the album features the group alone – Oscar on piano, Herb Ellis on guitar, and Ray Brown on bass – all in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mustang!
Verve, Late 60s. Very Good-
A fantastic LP of beautiful modal tracks, played by one of the most underrated reed players ever, during the most fruitful time of his career. At this point, Amy's moved away from his bluesy Texas roots, and has discovered a freer Coltrane-esque sound that works beautifully with his spiritual, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Verve, 1953/1954/1955. Very Good+
An odd little album in the Stan Getz catalog of the 50s – not just because of the cheesy cover and title, but also because it features a range of unusual material recorded over a three year period with a variety of different players! Some of the dates here definitely fit the "cool ... LP, Vinyl record album

Trumpet Kings
Verve, 1954. Very Good
Diz and Roy come together in a nice blend of two traditions – blowing in a relaxed mode that's less of the "battle" you might expect from the title – and more of a friendly exchange of solos, recorded in the open and laidback style of Verve at the time. The group features ... LP, Vinyl record album

Greatest Of Dizzy Gillespie
RCA, Late 40s/1961. Very Good+
Great RCA comp of Dizzy's earlier bop sides for the label, many of which came out first only as singles. Tracks include all the classics like "Cubana Be", "Cubana Bop", "Manteca", "Night in Tunisia", and a whole bunch more that you've heard him reprise a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Groove Merchant, 1974. Near Mint-
Funky early 70s work by Jimmy McGriff – a mix of tight groovers and more open soul jazz numbers – all of which represent some of his best moments for the Groove Merchant label! Jimmy's got a lean, mean sound on these tracks – and even when the backings are full, they've got the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Black Pearl
Blue Note, 1971. Near Mint-
One of the most hard-hitting Jimmy McGriff albums of the 70s – a raw live date recorded in Newark – and a set that's a perfect bridge between the sharp soul of his Sue Records sessions and his later funk to come! The whole thing's got a gritty vibe the really recalls the sound of a ... LP, Vinyl record album
