Live At Montmartre

LP (Item 618433) Timeless (Netherlands), 1985 — Condition: Near Mint-

Solidly soaring work from tenorist George Adams – recording live here with pianist Don Pullen, one of his best musical partners during the 80s! The album's got a bit more of a bite than some of the pair's studio sessions – a bit straighter overall, but recorded with a nice degree of energy, and some long tracks that really let both players open up nicely – in a combo that also features John Scofield on guitar, Cameron Brown on bass, and Dannie Richmond on drums. The inclusion of Scofield's guitar changes up the group's sound in a nice way – adding in some more chromatic elements that really stand out – and titles include "IJ", "Flame Games", "Song Everlasting", and "Forever Lovers".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Timeless, 1978. Near Mint-
A tremendous moment for the great George Adams as a leader – a record that won the reedman widespread attention after some key work in the bigger groups of Gil Evans and Charles Mingus!

Joe Farrell & Louis Hayes Quartet

Vim & Vigor
Timeless (Netherlands), 1983. Near Mint-
Some of the best work that Louis Hayes and Joe Farrell cut during the 80s – a freewheeling and open session that's steep on soul, and filled with the best energy both players could muster!

Joanne Brackeen & Clint Houston

New True Illusion
Timeless (Netherlands), 1978. Near Mint-
A hell of a record from this wonderful pianist – partly because the set only features the bass of Clint Houston for accompaniment, and no other instrumentation at all! Clint's sound is wonderful – full, rich, and extremely rhythmic – so much so, there's no need for drums at all ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pharoah Sanders

Jewels Of Thought
Impulse, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold
A wonderful reunion of Pharoah Sanders and vocalist Leon Thomas – and a set that captures a lot of the same energy as the pair's previous record – Karma! Thomas' vocals are in wonderful form for the set – stretching out soulfully on the extended classic "Hum-Allah-Hum-Allah-H ... LP, Vinyl record album
Inner City, 1976. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
One of Sun Ra's best non-Saturn live sets of the 70s – a nice little record that shows the group mixing it up with equal parts avant garde and straight ahead jazz, all handled in that ever-growing large group style that made them a real force to be reckoned with in a concert setting! The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Klaus Doldinger

Dig Doldinger
Philips, 1963. Near Mint-
Although he sucked monumentally during the 70s, when he was blowing his head off with his group Passport, Klaus Doldinger was actually a damn good soul jazz tenorist during the 60s – and he cut some great groovy LPs that were issued in the US, like this one from 1963. The record features ... LP, Vinyl record album

Miles Davis

Seven Steps To Heaven
Columbia, 1963. Very Good+
A key point in the development of the Miles Davis sound of the 60s – his first album to feature work from Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams – augmented by some equally nice work on other tracks from Victor Feldman and Frank Butler! The sound here is beautifully spare – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Miles Davis

Porgy & Bess
Columbia, 1958. Very Good+
Way more than just a simple version of work from Porgy & Bess – and instead, a key collaboration between Miles Davis and Gil Evans – done with a sound that really transforms the tunes! True, the work here is all based on George Gershwin's original compositions – but through ... LP, Vinyl record album

Freddie Hubbard/Curtis Fuller/Yusef Lateef

Gettin It Together
TCB, Early 60s/Early 70s. Near Mint-
One of those great sessions that was originally issued on the Warwick label during the early 60s, and repackaged with less notes during the early 70s. As with most of the Warwick jazz sessions, this one's excellent – and features a mixture of hardbop and soul jazz modernism that's totally in ... LP, Vinyl record album
Enja, 1968. Near Mint-
Prime post-Coltrane material from Elvin Jones – featuring his "power trio" style of operation, with one great sax player out front, and Jones kicking it in the back with the bass player! In this case, the sax player is George Coleman – who's really finding a voice of his own ... LP, Vinyl record album

Herb Geller

Gypsy
Atco, 1959. Very Good+
A familiar concept, but an incredibly hip album – versions of tunes from the musical Gypsy, all played by an incredible group led by altoist Herb Geller! Geller could be a fantastically modern player when he wanted to be – and this album pushes him distinctly in that direction, as it ... LP, Vinyl record album
