This Is Duke Ellington

LP (Item 644183) RCA, 1930s — Condition: Very Good+
2LP Gatefold

Features the tracks "Mood Indigo", "The Mooche", "East Saint Louis Toodle-oo", "Take The A Train" and more.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light wear.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Ellington At Newport
Columbia, 1956. 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!

Duke Ellington

Great Paris Concert
Atlantic, 1963. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Did Ellington ever record in concert and it not be great? This wonderful double-length set from the 60s is key proof of his genius in an unfettered live setting – recorded in Paris in 1963 with plenty of dark edges! The tracks are short overall, but Duke's really at the head of the group on ... LP, Vinyl record album

A great high concept composition from Duke Ellington – one that rivals the earlier brilliance of his Liberian Suite!

Brian Auger

Straight Ahead
RCA, 1974. Very Good
Long lean groovers from Brian Auger and the Oblivion Express group – recorded with a slightly freer feel than some of the group's earlier albums, and an approach that has them stretching out nicely!

After The Riot At Newport
RCA, 1960. Very Good-
It's a little known fact that Nashville, although best remembered as a center of country music, has also given the world some pretty great jazz players – some of whom easily skirt the line between jazz and country studio work. This set's a great summation of that tradition – featuring ... LP, Vinyl record album
