Walk Tall (aka 74 Miles Away/ Walk Tall)

LP (Item 64545) Capitol, 1967 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


The second pressing of Walk Tall/74 Miles Away – a classic album recorded during the time when Capitol was making a mint off of Cannonball's funky soul jazz riffing – and one of the early efforts he did with David Axelrod at the helm! Once again, keyboardist Joe Zawinul's penned the big tracks on the album, including the 2 title hits – "Walk Tall" and "74 Miles Away". The latter is the best groove, and has a lot of room for a nice long solo workout by Cannon, Nat, and Joe!  © 1996-2017, 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.

Cannonball Takes Charge
Riverside, 1959. Very Good-
A hardbop classic from Cannonball Adderley – and one of his harder to find albums from the Riverside days! The set has Cannon playing without his usual group, in the context of an all-star batch of players that includes Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Jimmy Cobb – who he worked with ...

Lush Side Of Cannonball
EmArcy, Late 50s. Very Good
A wonderfully mellow set of ballads recorded by Cannonball, with orchestral backings by Richard Hayman. The album's typical of the kind of "all over the map" approach that Mercury used during Cannon's early years – before he'd settled down into the one-man soul jazz factory he ...

Soul Zodiac
Capitol, 1972. Very Good- 2LP Gatefold
One of the coolest, baddest, funkiest albums Cannonball Adderley ever recorded – a massive suite of tunes based on the signs of the Zodiac, produced to perfection by David Axelrod, and featuring some hip recitations from the mighty Rick Holmes! The double-length set is completely compelling ... LP, Vinyl record album

Capitol, 1974. Sealed
A stone classic from Supersax – a record with plenty of classic bop elements, despite a very 70s-styled group name and cover! The combo's a large one, and features tight horn formation deftly cutting through a host of bop classics – lots of ensemble passages at the start, then breakout ... LP, Vinyl record album
Plays Bird
Capitol, 1973. Sealed
A completely fresh take on the Charlie Parker aesthetic of the bop generation – updated for the 70s, but in ways that are still pretty classic overall! The group's a large one, but plays with a tightness that goes way past their gimmicky name – thanks to players who include Med Flory ... LP, Vinyl record album
Boston Blow-Up!
Capitol, 1955. Very Good
One of the few key recordings issued by baritone saxophonist Serge Chaloff before his untimely early death – a tremendous little record that really helped redefine the place of his instrument in jazz! The album is one of a number produced by Stan Kenton for Capitol at the time, but it's far ... LP, Vinyl record album
Shearing On Stage
Capitol, 1958. Very Good+
A great set from George Shearing – recorded live, with a lot more of a tight jazz style than some of his higher-concept sets for Capitol in the late 50s! The group here is wonderful – with vibes from Emil Richards, guitar and harmonica from Toots Thielemans, percussion from Armando ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mahal
Capitol, 1978. Very Good
A stone classic from trumpeter Eddie Henderson – and a record that illustrates why he was such a key part of helping the spiritual jazz underground of the 70s find a wider audience at the time! The album's balanced between the freer styles of Eddie's roots and the tighter, soulful modes of ... LP, Vinyl record album
