Duke Ellington & His Orchestra Vol 1 – The Beginning

LP (Item 634699) MCA, Mid 20s — Condition: Near Mint-
Includes "Immigration Blues", "The Creeper", "New Orleans Low Down", "Black & Tan Fantasy", "Doin' The Frog", "Jubilee Stomp", "Black Beauty", and more.  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono white label promo. NOTE – Cover is stained at 3 inches along the spine, with Sample Copy ink stamps in back.)

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.

Columbia, 1956. Very Good+
One of our favorite Duke Ellington albums, and a sometimes-overlooked work that stands as one of his best compositions from the time.

Reprise, 1965. Very Good+
One of the great entries in Duke Ellington's "exotic" albums of the 60s – records that aren't exactly exotica by any stretch of the imagination, but which have musical themes that were inspired by the international travels of the Ellington band at the time! In this case, the locale ... LP, Vinyl record album

Duke Ellington

Collages
MPS, 1973. Near Mint-
It's often said that the late material by Duke Ellington is some of his most adventurous and exciting – and with this rare album from 1973 as proof, we'd have to agree! Collages features Duke's piano playing backed by a large symphonic group conducted by Canadian leader Ron Collier. The ... LP, Vinyl record album

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!

Symphonic Ellington
Reprise, 1963. Near Mint-
An incredible record – and key proof that Ellington was growing even more in the 60s than he had a decade before! Duke's working here with a core orchestra of his own, plus a huge amount of added players from orchestras in Paris, Hamburg, Stockholm, and Milan – all working together in ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1959. Very Good+
One of Duke's standout sides for Columbia during the late 50s wealth of new recordings – a live set recorded at Miami's Bal Masque nightclub. The arrangements are sophisticated, and Duke's piano is hitting that darkly-tinged later style – but the focus is also on danceable arrangements ... LP, Vinyl record album

Deodato

Artistry
MCA, 1974. Near Mint-
A live set from Deodato – but one that's very much in the mode of his best CTI studio sessions – with soaring, over the top keyboard work that's totally great – backed by some tightly compressed guitar, bass, and drums, with just enough funk in the mix to keep things interesting! ...
