Suite For Swingers

LP (Item 62444) Horo (Italy), 1976 — Condition: Near Mint-

A slightly confused album, but not without some nice moments! The set is one of a few that Adams recorded for the Horo label in Italy – and it features a quintet with Don Pullen on piano and keyboards, David Friesen on bass, Dannie Richmond on drums, and Afonso Vieira on percussion. The title track is kind of a messed-up avant number that really doesn't go anywhere, and which takes up all of side one. "Blues By The River" is an unfortunate blues tune that doesn't deliver either. BUT the album is capped off by one great number – the 15 minute "Melodic Rhapsody", a really wonderful mellow tune that mixes electric piano and tenor work, in a cool but soulfully spiritual style, similar to the best later Marion Brown work on Impulse. This track is great, and totally worth the album for us!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has some unglueing at the bottom seam, in great shape otherwise with minimal aging.)

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!

Five To Go
Horo (Italy), 1976. Near Mint-
A rare one from Pullen – a mid 70s Italian recording that's got two side-long solo piano pieces: "Five To Go" and "Four Move". The album has a warm introspective quality that's really great – Pullen meandering a bit, but in that way that always works for him, ... LP, Vinyl record album

George Benson

Bad Benson
CTI, 1974. Very Good- Gatefold
Pretty mellow stuff from George Benson, but with some nice moments! Don Sebesky handled the arrangements for this set of larger backings – but Benson's guitar is right out front, hitting some super-dope lines at the best moments, stretching out from the warm Fender Rhodes or horn heavy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny Stitt

Only The Blues
Verve, 1957. Very Good-
Probably the most classic of Stitt's sides for Verve – and certainly the one that gets rated time and time again by jazz collectors. We think it's pretty darn great – although we always wonder why folks don't give Stitt's other sides for Verve as much of a chance, because they're all ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cannonball Adderley

Cannonball's Sharpshooters
Mercury, 1958. Very Good-
A set that's right on target, right from the start – and one that has the young Cannonball Adderley really coming into his groove! The set's a lot more soul jazz-oriented than some of Cannon's records from a few years before – played by a rock-solid group that includes brother Nat ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ted Curson

Snake Johnson
Chiaroscuro, 1981. Sealed
A strong little album from Ted Curson – one of his best from the time, and one of the few that feature him working in a group that's larger than a quartet! Players on this one include Ted's old partner Bil Barron on tenor, plus Nick Brignola on baritone and soprano, Charles Williams on alto, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rene Paulo

Tropical Heatwave
Hi Fi, Late 50s. Near Mint-
A Tropical Heat Wave from the Rene Paulo Group – actually a very cool record by an obscure little combo featuring a guitar/piano/bass/drums lineup – with a sound that's a mix of tight jazz and exotic lounge. We don't know much about them, but they groove very nicely on all the tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album
