Miles Davis – The Columbia Years 1955 to 1985 (5LP Box Set)

LP (Item 634352) Columbia, Late 50s/1960s/1970s/Early 80s — Condition: Near Mint-
5LP Box Set

Wide ranging box set of material recorded for Columbia, nicely arranged by category for each disc, including blues, standards, originals, moods, and electric!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes the booklet, promo insert, and printed inner sleeves. Box has light wear and a promo sticker.)

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.

Miles Davis

Tutu
Warner, 1986. Near Mint-
A nice collaboration between Miles and Marcus Miller from the latter part of Miles career. As much of the recording here is overdubbed, with many multiple instruments played by Miller, it doesn't have the improvised vibe of Miles' classic performances, but the songwriting and arrangements are head ...

Miles Davis

Miles In Tokyo
CBS (Japan), 1964. Near Mint-
Miles Davis' first-ever performance in Japan – a really unique concert that featured the quintet with Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams – augmented by a young Sam Rivers on tenor! The presence of Rivers really gives the set an edge – and although Miles is holding Sam ... LP, Vinyl record album

Weather Report

Mysterious Traveller
Columbia, 1974. Very Good
A new sense of focus in the Weather Report sound – that building, soaring groove that would become the group's trademark in the mid 70s – offered up here in one of it's first and finest examples! The approach is one to describe accurately on paper – but which is instantly ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stan Getz

Captain Marvel
Columbia, 1972. Very Good
A wicked album that's one of Stan Getz's best from the 70s! The record features Stan reunited with Chick Corea, whose warm lyricism was the lynchpin in Getz's landmark Sweet Rain – the stunning session from 1968 that is perhaps our favorite-ever Getz album. Corea plays electric piano here, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Zawinul Syndicate

Immigrants
Columbia, 1988. Near Mint-
With Joe Zawinul, Scott Henderson, Abraham Laboriel, Alex Acuna, Cornell Rochester, and Rudy Regalado. Titles include "Criollo", "March Of The Lost Children", "From Venice To Vienna", and "The Devil Never Sleeps". LP, Vinyl record album

Stanley Clarke

Modern Man
Columbia/Nemperor, 1978. Near Mint-
A bit more high concept than before for Stanley Clarke – almost a suite of sorts, but one that still has some great standout tunes in the mix! Although Clarke used to bring his higher concepts to bear in the space of a single song, this one's more of a full exploration of the character in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dexter Gordon

Gotham City
Columbia, 1981. Sealed
With George Benson, Cedar Wlaton, Percy Heath, Woody Shaw, and Art Blakey! LP, Vinyl record album

Duke Ellington

Ellington At Newport
Columbia, 1956. Very Good
One of the first albums to ever issue recordings made at the Newport Jazz Festival – quite a big hit, and the beginning of a real trend in jazz! The set's also some great work by Duke – free to perform in a setting that's not bound by some of the time restrictions of earlier years, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Compilation of early 50s recordings, with notable sidemen including Hal McKusick, Herbie Mann, Eddie Bert, and many more. LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1957. Sealed
One of Duke Ellington's best albums of the 50s – a well-conceived session of dark moody tracks that revisits a few old favorites, hits a few standards, and offers a new gem that's right up there with the classics! The "indigos" title is taken very seriously here – as the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Elvin Jones

Genesis
Blue Note, 1971. Very Good
Elvin Jones rose to fame in the company of one of the greatest saxophone players ever – the mighty John Coltrane – and his post-Coltrane work like this really continues a keen respect for the role of the reeds in jazz – and really does a lot to push it forward as well! There's a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lou Donaldson

Gravy Train
Blue Note, 1961. Very Good
An early 60s killer from Lou Donaldson – one that more than lives up to the promise of its great cover and compelling title! The lineup has Lou blowing in an easy, soulful style – working with a combo that includes Herman Foster on piano, Ben Tucker on bass, and Dave Bailey on drums ... LP, Vinyl record album
