Just Friends (Direct To Disc pressing)

LP (Item 613874) Concord, 1978 — Condition: Near Mint-

With Laurindo Almeida on guitar, Ray Brown on bass, Bud Shank on alto, and Jeff Hamilton on drums.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Single LP 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.

Going Home
East Wind (Japan), 1977. Near Mint- Gatefold
Wonderful work from this really unique west coast combo of the 70s – a quartet that draws plenty from key contributions of each of its members – but which also has a very special sound in the acoustic guitar of Laurindo Almeida!

East Wind (Japan), 1977. Near Mint- Gatefold
A beautiful group, and one with a very unique sound – a style that draws from the early 50s experiments in Brazilian jazz by Bud Shank and Laurindo Almeida – but which also moves the approach into even more sophisticated 70s territory! The quartet features Almeida on acoustic guitar ... LP, Vinyl record album

Toshiko Akiyoshi

Finesse
Concord, 1978. Near Mint-
A wonderfully intimate set from pianist Toshiko Akiyoshi – quite different than her bigger band records of the 70s, but equally great in its own way!

Terence Blanchard & Donald Harrison

Discernment
Concord, 1986. Sealed

Philips, 1963. Very Good+
A rare 60s meeting of groovy talents from both sides of the Atlantic – and a record that matches the trumpet of Dizzy Gillespie with the hiply swinging vocals of The Double Six Of Paris! The group were a wonderfully groovy precursor to the Swingle Singers – and sung in a scatting ... LP, Vinyl record album

Quincy Jones

Golden Boy
Mercury, 1964. Very Good+
A sweet bridge between Quincy's big band recordings and his groovier soundtrack work of the mid 60s – as the record combines straight jazzy grooving with some of the cooler elements of Quincy's soundtrack scores, like stepping strings, wordless voices, and a breathy mellow groove that floats ...

Jasper Van't Hof's Pork Pie

Transitory
MPS (Germany), 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold
Funky electric fusion in the best 70s MPS tradition – tight, choppy, and filled with loads of quick jazzy changes! The group here is the Porkpie combo of keyboardist Jasper Van't Hof – who plays electric piano, celeste, and "prepared organ" with some really great sounds ... LP, Vinyl record album

Karl Berger & Company

Tune In
Milestone, 1969. Very Good+
An obscure record from German vibist Karl Berger – and a great one!
