Soundsigns

LP (Item 630141) Galaxy, 1981 — Condition: Near Mint-

(Cover has a cut corner.)

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.

Cal Tjader

Here
Galaxy, 1977. Sealed
An overlooked 70s gem from Cal Tjader – a sweet little live set recorded in San Francisco, and a solid groover that stands with his better-known 70s live albums for Fantasy! The tunes have a spare and spacious feel to them – almost like Cal and the group are feeling out the spaces ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Griffin

Bush Dance
Galaxy, 1979. Near Mint-
A later album by Johnny Griffin, recorded after his return to the US during the late 70s. This album's a pretty interesting little set – one that features Griffin working in an easygoing combo with slight electric touches – a group that features George Freeman on guitar, alongside ...

Art Pepper

Landscape
Galaxy, 1979. Very Good+
Late live work from Art Pepper – and a set that has him blowing a bit of clarinet, in addition to his usual alto sax! The session was recorded in performance in Tokyo, but it's got the close-up feel of some of Art's studio sets from the time – beautifully blown, with an open quality in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Art Pepper & George Cables

Tete A Tete
Galaxy, 1982. Near Mint-
Unusual stuff – just duets between Pepper's alto and the piano of George Cables – nice and intimate! LP, Vinyl record album

Thad Jones & The Swedish Radio Jazz Group

Greetings & Salutations
Philips, 1976. Near Mint-
An overlooked gem from the great Thad Jones – and a nicely different set than some of his US dates with drummer Mel Lewis! During the mid and late 70s, Thad Jones made more than a few great recordings in Sweden, a number of them with a loose collective of musicians from the country's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nat Adderley

Calling Out Loud
CTI/A&M, 1968. Very Good Gatefold
A pretty great little album from Nat – recorded with arrangements by Bill Fischer, who gives the record a tightly compressed big band sound that's perfect for Nat's sharp funky horn! The album's not exactly "funk", but there's plenty of it in the mix – as lead horn grooves ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wes Montgomery

Road Song
A&M/CTI, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold
Beautifully lofty work from the great Wes Montgomery – a set that was recorded quite late in his too-short career, and really points the way towards some of the sophisticated sounds that might have followed, had Wes not left this planet all too soon! Don Sebesky is at the head of the charts ... LP, Vinyl record album
Impulse, 1975. Very Good+
Searing live work from Gato Barbieri – a brilliant little album that follows on the spirit of his other Latin America sessions for Impulse! The format here is similar to those studio outings – an organic blend of percussion, keyboards, and sax – all bubbling together in a highly ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gato Barbieri

Tropico
A&M, 1978. Very Good+
A far reaching late 70s set from Gato Barbieri – a record that blends fusiony jazz funk, lush stings, and Latin rhythms and fluid solos on a varied batch of tunes! One of the more interesting things about the production is that those varied approaches often come into play within the same ... LP, Vinyl record album
