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

ESP
Columbia, 1965. Very Good
An album of dark and subtle beauty – and still one of our favorite Miles Davis albums of all time! The set's not as earth-shattering as some of Davis' other work of the 60s, but that's why we like it so much – because the emerging genius of the group with Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, ...

Ramsey Lewis

Sun Goddess
Columbia, 1974. Very Good
One of our favorite Ramsey Lewis albums ever – and a perfect summation of the genius that was brewing on the Chicago scene in the late 60s and early 70s! The album has Ramsey working strongly with Earth Wind & Fire – no surprise, given his close ties to Maurice White, who was the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1962. Very Good
Fantastic stuff – and a beautiful album of modal grooves that really deserves wider recognition! Horn plays alto and flute in a groovy west coast quintet with Emil Richards on vibes and Paul Moer on piano – and the overall feel is very similar to his stellar Something Blue album on the ...

Wynton Marsalis

Live At Blues Alley
Columbia, 1988. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
An open-ended live set from Wynton Marsalis' 80s run for Columbia Records – and a set that's sometimes a bit more unbridled than his studio work at the time! There's still plenty of the Marsalis manner in place here – that great talent for subtle shadings, and quiet exploration of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, Late 30s/Early 40s. Near Mint-

Woody Herman

Woody's Winners
Columbia, 1965. Very Good+
Wome of Woody Herman's cooler, groovier work of the 60s – with work from young talents that include Don Rader on both trumpet and arrangements, plus Dusko Goykovich on additional trumpet, Nat Pierce on piano, and Sal Nistico on tenor! LP, Vinyl record album

Dave Brubeck

Adventures In Time
Columbia, Late 50s/Early 60s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
A great collection of tracks from one of Dave Brubeck's most inventive periods – that time when he was playing with time changes and rhythms on albums like Time Out, Time In, and other Columbia sets with his classic quartet with Paul Desmond! Titles include "Take Five", "Blue ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chet Baker

Chet Baker Big Band
Pacific Jazz, 1956. Near Mint-
Excellent work – and believe it or not, a great big band album led by Chet Baker! Although Chet's mostly best known for his work in small groups, he's really shining here as the leader of a large ensemble that includes a mix of "cool" west coast players on horns – Bud Shank, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Art Farmer

Perception
Argo, 1961. Very Good+
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
