Elf – The Savoy Sessions

LP (Item 641340) Savoy, 1945/1949 — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP Gatefold

...

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.

Erroll Garner

Encores In Hi-Fi
Columbia, 1959. Very Good+
A late 50s set that brings together Erroll Garner material recorded earlier in the decade – all cleaned up a bit to warrant the "Hi Fi" in the title! But don't worry about any tricks or gimmicks – because the sound's as spare, acoustic, and personal as Garner at his best in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Erroll Garner

Dreamstreet
Octave, 1961. Very Good+
Garner grooves nicely here – finding an almost renewed energy for the 60s, but still hitting all those highly-rhythmic modes we love so much in his early work! The recording quality is great – lots of bold echo from the piano, and even a bit of Erroll's grunting vocalizations somewhere ... LP, Vinyl record album

Erroll Garner

Concert By The Sea
Columbia, 1955. Very Good-
One of Erroll Garner's best-selling albums ever – a famous live date recorded in the mid 50s – and a record that's as important to his catalog as the classic Misty! Garner's playing before an apparently large audience, but the recording quality is still nice and clear – a strong ... LP, Vinyl record album

Blues Suite
Savoy, Late 50s. Very Good+
One of AK Salim's far-reaching "jazz suites" from the late 50s.

Jay & Kai (Savoy) (10 inch LP)
Savoy, Early 50s. Very Good
Excellent early recordings from the team of JJ Johnson and Kai Winding – the kind of sides that always remind us how great their twin trombone work could be! The album's lacking the cliches of later albums, and presents both players at their best – soulful and stripped down, grooving ... LP, Vinyl record album
Savoy, Late 40s/Early 60s. Very Good
One of the better of the many posthumous albums that Savoy issued after Bird's death. The set combines master takes and alternates of classic Parker material for the label, and includes pivotal bop tracks like "Parker's Mood", "Constellation", "Ah-Leu-Cha", "Perha ... LP, Vinyl record album

Savoy, 1945/Early 60s. Near Mint-
Well, it's not the whole Charlie Parker Story – but the album does feature some great material from a very famous session, recorded on 11/26/1945, originally issued on 78s, along with extra tracks, compiled here in one of Savoy's posthumous Bird LPs from the early 60s. The group includes ... LP, Vinyl record album
