Et Tu Flute

LP (Item 6404) Verve, Late 50s/1973 — Condition: Used
2LP Gatefold
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

4.70 5

Herbie's flute work for Verve was some of his best – and it had a tight Latiny groove that was often missing from some of his later, weaker work. This 2LP set brings together most of his best 50s moments for the label, including a lot of cuts that just don't show up on wax in any other way. Titles include "The Amazon River", "Come On Mule", "Oodles Of Noodles", "Baia", and a nice long version of "I'll Remember April". (Cover has some aging, light wear, a small seam split, and a bit of sticker residue.)  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Push Push
Embryo, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold
One of Herbie Mann's biggest albums – and one of his funkiest too! The cover's a bit of an off-putter – although it probably helped sell the record, back in the day – but the grooves are as rock-solid as anything that Herbie cut at the time – tight, focused, and a perfect ... LP, Vinyl record album

Getz Au Go Go
Verve, Mid 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold
A beautiful dreamy album that's quite different from the classic Getz/Gilberto collaboration – but which also shares much of that set's lyrical beauty! This album was recorded live, in 1964, when Stan Getz was playing with his quartet that included Gary Burton on vibes – an incredible ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hallelujah Hamp
Verve, Mid 50s. Very Good+
One of Lionel Hampton's great small combo sides for Verve from the 50s – done mostly with accompaniment from a trio of Oscar Peterson, Ray Brown, and Buddy Rich – plus the addition of guitar from Herb Ellis on a few of the album's shorter tracks. It's the longer ones that are really ... LP, Vinyl record album

Verve, 1968. Near Mint-

Mr Roberts Plays Guitar
Verve, 1957. Very Good-
Howard Roberts' first album as a leader – a unique little session recorded for Verve, and one that's done with a different feel than his later work for Capitol! And in fact, the session's even different than most Verve work from the time – as it's got Roberts soloing over larger group ... LP, Vinyl record album

Trumpet Battle 1952
Verve, 1952. Very Good
Before you ask, the cover doesn't feature pictures of these guys whacking each other over their heads with trumpets! Instead, it features Jazz At The Philharmonic material from 1952 – with long tracks that include "Jam Session Blues", "The Trumpet Battle", and a "Ball ... LP, Vinyl record album
