Piece for Clarinet & String Orchestra/Mobiles

LP (Item 6636) Verve, 1959 — Condition: Very Good+
Gatefold

A Verve album that pairs the avant garde clarinet of Jimmy Giuffre with the orchestrations of the String Section of the Sudwestfunk Orchestra of Baden-Baden. The record features some of Giuffre's most stretched-out playing to date, and it's a real hint of the outside directions he would take later in the 60's. Titles include "Mobiles" and "Movements 1 through 5". One of Jimmy's rarest – and a masterpiece of third stream jazz!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover includes the original paste-on image – and has some 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.

Verve, 1965. Very Good
A real classic by Cal – one of the trademark albums of his time at Verve, and a unique blend of jazz, Latin, and other groovy influences! The tunes have that lightly jazzy approach that made Cal a hit with the radio and jukebox crowds at the time – a bossa-influenced mix of vibes, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, Early 60s. Very Good
An excellent album that has Stitt playing with moody string arrangements by Ralph Burns. This sort of album became one of the Verve trademarks after the success of the Charlie Parker & Strings sessions – but this Stitt LP gives the sound a whole new twist, thanks largely to Burns' ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1957. Very Good+
An unusual live date for Oscar Peterson – in that it wasn't actually officially recorded by Verve, but done by a fan and handed over to Norman Granz at a later date! Given that origin, though, the material is quite strong – recorded with an edge that's slightly earthier than usual for ... LP, Vinyl record album

Count Basie

Hall Of Fame
Verve, Mid 50s. Very Good+
Excellent work from that wonderful 50s moment when Count Basie was really reinventing his band – stripping things down, getting nice and lean, and putting in this soulful kick to the rhythms that really helped modernize the groove! The set's a mix of arrangements from Ernie Wilkins, and a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1962. Very Good Gatefold
A groovy 60s session from vibist Cal Tjader – and an excellent little Latin set, with a mixture of bossa nova and Latin jazz that goes way beyond the promise of the title! The great Clare Fischer arranged the set – and if you know his work with Cal, you know that he's got a wonderful ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1963. Very Good+
Basie hits the hits of the 50s and early 60s – working here with some tight Billy Byers arrangements that really help transform the tunes! The groove is upbeat, bright, and brilliantly soulful – that punctuated Basie groove first formed when Neal Hefti was with the group, still carried ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1960. Very Good+
With Calvin Newborn on guitar, Carl Pruitt on bass, and Bill English on drums. LP, Vinyl record album

Cal Tjader

In A Latin Bag
Verve, 1961. Very Good Gatefold
One of Cal's first albums for Verve, and a great set of Latin tracks with Lonnie Hewitt on piano, Armando Peraza on bongos, Johnny Rae on timbales, and Paul Horn on flute. The overall sound is great – and the album has a straight-on jazzy groove that makes it much better than some of Cal's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Teddy Wilson

Touch Of Teddy Wilson
Verve, 1957. Near Mint-
Teddy Wilson's touch is lean and clean here – about as fluid as we remember it from the 50s – beautifully recorded with just the right sound for his sensitive moments and freer flights on the keys! Rhythm is from Arvell Shaw on bass and Roy Burns on drums – and although most of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rahsaan Roland Kirk

Return Of The 5000 Lb Man
Warner, 1975. Very Good+
A beautiful late chapter in the jazz journey of Rahsaan Roland Kirk – and an album of subtle genius that's really opened up to us over the years! The setting here isn't as "hit you over the head" as on some of Kirk's Atlantic Records – because at one level, the tunes are ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lionel Hampton

Please Sunrise
Brunswick, 1972. Sealed
Sweet vibes from the great Lionel Hampton – sounding different here than both his early swing years, and his later small combo modes – and working in a style that has his instrument in the lead over hip Chicago soul backings from the team at Brunswick Records! The album's got a nicely ... LP, Vinyl record album

Joe Pass

Stones Jazz
World Pacific, 1966. Very Good+
A sweet jazzy take on the music of The Rolling Stones – one that features guitarist Joe Pass in the lead, over some tight backings from the great Bob Florence! Joe's joined by Dennis Budimir on additional acoustic guitar – and both players ring out with a hollow-body sound that's a lot ... LP, Vinyl record album
