Thelonious Monk With John Coltrane

LP (Item 63272) Jazzland, 1957/Early 60s — Condition: Very Good

An interesting little LP that compiles alternate takes from Monk's classic album for Riverside – Monk's Music – the session that featured the unique twin tenor lineup of John Coltrane and Coleman Hawkins. The album features 4 different alternates of tunes from that set – "Nutty", "Epistrophy", "Functional", and "Off Minor" – plus 2 other tunes played by a quartet that features Monk, Coltrane, Wilbur Ware, and Shadow Wilson – on the tunes "Ruby My Dear" and "Trinkle Trinkle". A real odd one in the catalog, but with some great music!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Orange label Jazzland pressing. Vinyl has a mark that clicks for a bit on one track, but rest is nice. Cover has some light wear, and seam splitting all around, but not detached.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

As the title implies, some of Monk's finest sides for Riverside, collected when the label was under the umbrella of ABC records.

George Shearing & The Montgomery Brothers

George Shearing & The Montgomery Brothers
Jazzland, 1961. Sealed
Some of jazz's most sensitive artists get together in a lyrical set of light-handed ditties. Shearing's piano is a surprisingly nice complement to the vibes/bass/guitar sound of The Montgomery Brothers – and the group is augmented by some nice Latin percussion. Tracks are short, and titles ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jazzland/Prestige, 1960. Sealed
An excellent album by Dexter Gordon – his first after a number of years spent without recording in the late 50s, and one that marked a real return to serious growth as a player during the 60s!

Johnny Lytle

Nice & Easy
Jazzland, 1962. Very Good+
An unusual record for vibist Johnny Lytle – one that has him breaking from his usual trio formation, to work in a super-tight lineup that includes some soul jazz heavyweights! The sound's quite different than Lytle's usual mix of organ and vibes, but still pretty darn great – thanks to ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jazzland, 1961. Very Good-
A killer set of grooves from vibes legend Johnny Lytle – one of the first and one of the few to ever combine vibes with Hammond organ – in this case, the work of Milt Harris on the keys! The group is a very rhythmic trio, thanks to Harris on the bass pedals, and Penny Hinant on the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Grover Washington Jr

Feels So Good
Kudu, 1975. Very Good
An incredible batch of electric funk from Grover Washington Jr – easily one of his best albums ever! The record really picks up from the sweet CTI sound of the 70s – taking Bob James arrangements with a lot of space and electric keyboards, and letting Groover blow some wonderfully ...

Blue Note, 1964. Near Mint- Gatefold
A brilliant album that proves that even at the height of his success, Lee Morgan was one of the freest thinkers on Blue Note – always coming up with fresh ideas that continued to grow his talents! The first cut on the album is keen poof of that fact – the title track "Search For ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Coltrane

Ballads
Impulse, 1962. Very Good+
A perennial favorite in the John Coltrane catalog – a beautiful set of standards, handled in a warm laidback style – one that shows that Trane's groundbreaking group with Jimmy Garrison on bass, Elvin Jones on drums, and McCoy Tyner on piano could still express themselves with even more ...

Lou Donaldson

Fried Buzzard
Cadet, 1965. Very Good
A live set recorded in 1965 – and more straight ahead soul jazz than Lou's later funk work on Blue Note, even though Leo Morris/Idris Muhammad is on drums. The album is a nice transitional session, though, with a good lounge jazz feel, and some nice long cuts like "Fried Buzzard", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Charles Tyler

Voyage From Jericho
Ak Ba, 1975. Near Mint-
A strange album from Tyler – and one that's almost funky! The record features Tyler in the company of free modal players Steve Reid, Arthur Blythe, Ronnie Boykins, and Earl Cross – and the album has a nice open-ended loft jazz sound that mixes spiritualism and free post-ESP playing in ...
