Rotation (original pressing)

LP (Item 6271) Nucleus, 1975 — Condition: Sealed

A fantastic batch of jazzy grooves – featuring Claudio Medeiros and Victor M of the group Made In Brasil, plus other associates from the Bay Area fusion scene of the 70s! The record's got a strong mix of mellow tunes and funkier ones – with touches of Brazilian jazz and CTI fusion swirled together in a San Francisco sunny mode. The set includes the incredible groover "Soar", which has nice moog bubbling through a jazzy midtempo groove – and features many other great tunes like "Cachaca", "Generous", "Green Olives", "Grape Woman", and "Rotation".  © 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.

Miles Davis

Bitches Brew
Columbia, 1969. Very Good 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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

Art Farmer

Perception
Argo, 1961. Near Mint-
An amazingly beautiful set of tracks from Art Farmer – playing here with superb accompaniment from a young Harold Mabern on piano, in a laidback quartet format that really lets Art open up! Art's playing is fresh and creative throughout – never too over the top, and always blown with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ornette Coleman

Change Of The Century
Atlantic, Early 60s. Very Good+
Essential stuff! This is one of Ornette Coleman's greatest albums – and it was recorded during a period when he just couldn't miss! The group features Don Cherry on pocket trumpet, Charlie Haden on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums – working here with a lively dancing sound on the kit, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Miles Davis

Agharta
Columbia, 1975. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A seminal 70s side from Miles Davis – originally a Japanese recording, and one that returns to the solid push of the initial electric years! The record's a completely cooking little session – one that mixes the raw, noisier styles of other Davis albums with a focus, funked-up energy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gary Bartz

Bartz
Arista, 1980. Very Good+
Sweet jazzy soul from Gary Bartz – proof that he always sounds great, no matter what the setting! Production is by the team of Mtume and Reggie Lucas – in a style that has all the jazzy sophistication of their own work – a nice extension of Gary's work at Capitol with Larry ... LP, Vinyl record album

Joe Henderson

Page One
Blue Note, 1963. Very Good+
One of Joe Henderson's first true moments of greatness – a landmark session recorded with a quintet that includes Kenny Dorham on trumpet, McCoy Tyner on piano, Butch Warren on bass, and Pete LaRoca on drums! LaRoca's very free on the drum kit, and gives the set a rhythmic looseness that's a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Everest, 1958. Very Good+
Typical Wild Bill combo stuff, but with the added bonus of the obscure tenor player Maurice Simon. All tracks are from My Fair Lady, but they do manage to swing them pretty well, especially since Jo Jones is on drums. LP, Vinyl record album

Ornette Coleman

Who's Crazy?
Affinity (UK), 1965/1982. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Reissue of this hard to get album, originally issued as two separate LPs, on the small French IRI imprint. Excellent work from Ornette – recorded in Paris in 1966 for the film Who's Crazy, featuring him on alto, violin, and trumpet – with a wonderfully playful feel thoroughout, plus ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Coltrane

Coltrane Time
United Artists, 1958. Very Good+
This is a repackaged version of an album that was originally issued under Cecil Taylor's name, under the title Hard Drive (and later Stereo Drive, or something like that). The record brings together two of the late 50's most promising modernists – Cecil Taylor and John Coltrane – in a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Elton Dean's Ninesense

Oh! For The Edge
Ogun (UK), 1976. Very Good+
There's definitely an edge here to the music – but one that's a bit different than that of some of Elton Dean's contemporaries in the 70s British scene! Dean brings a lot more swing and soul to this record than you might expect – working with a large group, but never letting the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Miltinho (Milton Banana)

Rhythm & The Sound Of Bossa Nova
Audio Fidelity, 1963. Very Good+
An excellent album of hard bossa cuts – played by drummer Antonio Da Souza, aka Miltinho, aka Milton Banana, with backing by Oscar Castro Neves! The band is a quartet led by Oscar Castro-Neves – with some nice piano by him, and some excellent alto work by the great Leo Wright! The ... LP, Vinyl record album
