Twelve Shades Of Blue

LP (Item 666092) Columbia, Mid 50s — Condition: Very Good+

(Mono 6 Eye pressing with deep groove. Cover has a small split on the top seam and a sticker spot.)

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.

Giant Steps
Fantasy, 1973. Very Good+
Genius 70s work from Woody Herman – funky big band with electric touches, served up on a range of wonderful tunes!

Cadet, 1970. Very Good+
The most obscure of Woody's albums for Cadet – and a bit different than the other two!

Moody Woody
Everest, 1959. Very Good+
Woody Herman plays Ralph Burns' 4 part suite "Summer Sequence" with his orchestra and Charlie Byrd soloing on guitar. There's also a few other shorter tracks, like "Bamba Samba" and "Prelude Ala Cha Cha" with a lighter feel, but as the title says, it's pretty moody ... LP, Vinyl record album

Angel Eyes
Columbia, 1965. Very Good+
Beautiful later work by the Dave Brubeck Quartet – an overlooked gem from their 60s Columbia sessions, and an album that features interpretations of tunes written by the great Matt Dennis!

Rodney Franklin

Endless Flight
Columbia, 1981. Very Good+
Rodney Franklin never let us down during his entire run for Columbia – and like his others for the label, this set's a brilliant mix of jazz, soul, and fusion – smoothed together nicely, but never in a way that's slick or commercial! Franklin's got a keen ear that lets him sit on both ... LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia, 1977. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
A wonderful follow-up to the first Montreux Summit album – and like that classic, a groundbreaking assemblage of some of the best jazz musicians of the 70s!

Baroque Sketches
Columbia, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
Baroque Sketches shows the wider reaching side of Art Farmer, and features him soloing over large arrangements of material that have a distinct "baroque" approach.
