Big Bands – 1933

LP (Item 612586) Prestige, 1933 — Condition: Near Mint-

(Blue label pressing in a purple cover.)

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.

Dexter Gordon

Panther!
Prestige, 1970. Near Mint-
An overlooked US date from 1970 – a set that Dexter Gordon recorded during a quick stop home from his time abroad – really cooking away in the Prestige studios with a great little rhythm section, in ways that are quite different than his better-known European work of the time! The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Hammond Smith

Nasty!
Prestige, 1968. Very Good+
A great album by Johnny Hammond, and one that doesn't turn up that often! The album features a quartet with Grady Tate, Houston Person, and John Abercrombie – who plays here in a surprisingly funky style, with none of the overindulgent flourishes of later recordings. The album's got a great ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dexter Gordon

Ca'Purange
Prestige, 1973. Very Good
One of Dexter's best sessions from the 70s – and one that's got more soul, more power, and more ensemble playing than a lot of his other "soloist with European rhythm section" albums. The group's a great one – with Thad Jones, Hank Jones, and Louis Hayes laying down some very ... LP, Vinyl record album

Red Garland with John Coltrane

Soul Junction
Prestige, 1957. Near Mint-
Soul Junction's a great title for this one – because the album's a great meeting point between 50s hard bop and some of the looser, earthier styles that were beginning to show up in the first years of soul jazz! The title track of this one is worth the price of admission alone – as Red ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dexter Gordon

Jumpin Blues
Prestige, 1970. Near Mint-
An unusual one from the Dexter's early 70s years – a US session cut with a tighter format than some of Gordon's imports, in a mode that kind of recalls his best Blue Note work of the 60s! The group on the set features Wynton Kelly on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Roy Brooks on drums – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Lockjaw Davis/Coleman Hawkins/Arnett Cobb/Bu

Very Saxy (second cover)
Prestige, 1959. Near Mint-
The title's terrible, but the album's a great one – a really classic-styled jam session, of the sort that the Prestige label hardly ever recorded! The session features 4 tenor giants of slightly older vintage – Eddie Lockjaw Davis, Coleman Hawkins, Arnett Cobb, and Buddy Tate – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Paul Quinichette

For Basie
Prestige, 1957. Near Mint-
Smoking tenor sax from Paul Quinichette – heard here in a small group of Basie bandmates, but in a setting that also has all the players stretch out a lot more than usual! Tracks are a bit long, and in addition to Quinichette on tenor, the set also features Shad Collins on trumpet, Nat ... LP, Vinyl record album

Art Ensemble Of Chicago

Phase One (Prestige pressing)
Prestige, 1971/1973. Near Mint-
One of the headiest albums ever recorded by the Art Ensemble of Chicago – a brilliant mix of noise and silence that rivals some of the greatest genius of the 20th century avant composition! The album's lead track "Ohnedaruth" builds slowly with a variety of percussion – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gene Ammons

Night Lights
Prestige, 1985. Near Mint-
... LP, Vinyl record album

Hampton Hawes

Northern Windows
Prestige, 1974. Near Mint-
One of the best David Axelrod-assisted albums from the early 70s – a sweet batch of funky cuts with arrangements and backings handled by Axe, and loads of great keyboard lines from the legendary Hampton Hawes! The record really bubbles with the warm and soulful approach Axelrod was using at ... LP, Vinyl record album

Miles Davis

Bitches Brew
Columbia, 1969. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
One of the few cases in jazz where an oft-played classic still resonates with power! The record itself is a key cap to Miles Davis' already-groundbreaking years of the 60s – a bold step forward, not just for his nascent electric sound, but also for jazz in general – and the benchmark ...

Herbie Hancock

Sextant
Columbia, 1973. Very Good
An incredible record – and virtually the blueprint for countless other keyboard records to come! At the height of his 70s powers, Herbie really takes off into space with this set – moving away from more commercial music, and hitting a groove that's totally righteous, totally electric, ...
