For Now At Least

LP (Item 624093) Progressive, 1982 — Condition: Sealed

Laurie Altman plays piano with his quintet including Mack Goldsbury on tenor and soprano sax, George Naha on guitar, Tom Marvel on bass, and Bill DiMartino on drums.  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

Walter Norris

Stepping On Cracks
Progressive, 1978. Near Mint-
Genius work from the always-compelling Walter Norris – a pianist with a sense of complexity that's always mesmerizing, but one who can also find a way to effortlessly swing at the same time – which he does beautifully on this overlooked set from the early 80s! Most tracks are long, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Second mammoth set of heavy trumpet work featuring John Dearth, John Eckert, Tom Harrell, Danny Hayes, Mike Lawrence, Danny Moore, and Waymon Reed going to town on numbers by a variety of composers.

Horace Silver

Blowin' The Blues Away
Blue Note, 1959. Very Good
A killer session from Horace's famous quintet that included Blue Mitchell, Junior Cook, Gene Taylor, and Louis Hayes – one of the group's earliest recordings for Blue Note – and also one of their best! The band had a unique mix of rootsy soul jazz playing and more exotic approaches to ... LP, Vinyl record album
Pacific Jazz, 1954. Very Good
Original 10" LP featuring the second set of historic duets between Brazilian guitarist Almeida and the great LA alto player Bud Shank. This is the stuff that supposedly ended up back in Brazil and inspired the wave of musicians involved in the bossa nova momement. It's been repackaged a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Savoy, Late 50s. Fair
One of Lateef's fantastic early albums for Savoy – with a style that mixes jazz with weird Eastern instrumentation and tribal rhythmas – for a sound that's somewhere between Sun Ra and later stuff on Tribe records. Lateef's playing with great players from the Detroit underground of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny Stitt

New York Jazz
Verve, 1956. Very Good
Sonny Stitt's work for Verve was some of his best on record – and this album is a perfect illustration of that bold claim! Sonny's blowing here in a wonderful style – a bit more restrained than on his early bop sides, more complicated than on his later soul jazz sessions, and all ... LP, Vinyl record album

Oliver Nelson's Big Band

Live From Los Angeles
Impulse, 1967. Very Good Gatefold
A unique little outing for Oliver Nelson – one that breaks him out of the familiar territory of the studio, and puts him in a much more spontaneous live setting! Nelson's playing soprano sax on the album – using the instrument in an edgey way that has echoes of Coltrane, yet which also ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1962. Very Good
The explosion in the title is definitely well-placed – as trombonist Slide Hampton makes his group groove with a tremendous amount of power here – all horns focused strongly on the rhythms, which themselves are wonderfully soulful! As with some of Hampton's best from the time, there's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stan Getz

Steamer
Verve, 1956. Very Good
The title may be a bit strangely put – as "Steamer" isn't a word that we'd necessarily think to use with the gently flowing tenor tone of Stan Getz – but that doesn't stop the album from being a great one, and perhaps in Getz-like terms, it might well have a bit more steam ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1960. Very Good
One of the strongest sides to feature Diz's mid 50s format – a larger group than usual, an octet, with a more tightly arranged style that showed that he continued to develop as an artist long after the days of his early bop sides. The album's also noteworthy for demonstrating Dizzy's great ... LP, Vinyl record album

Steven Halpern

Zodiac Suite
Halpern Sounds, 1977. Very Good
Trippy stuff! Side one of the album features spare electric piano tunes – dedicated to the Zodiac, and featuring Halpern noodling around on the keys in a nice dreamy mode. Side two features longer tracks in a similar spacey mode – and titles include "Moonrise Over Orion", ... LP, Vinyl record album
