Young Louis Armstrong – 1932 to 1933

LP (Item 668935) Bluebird/RCA, 1932/1933 — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP Gatefold

Early Bluebird Records material from label's glory days of 78rpm singles!  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has some ring and edge wear, small sticker spot, and half split top seam.)

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.

Phil Woods & Gene Quill

Phil & Quill
RCA, 1956. Near Mint-
A wonderful twin-alto session from the mid 50s – and one of our favorites from the RCA jazz years! Gene Quill was always one of the crisper, tighter alto talents of the time, and he's ably paired here with a young Phil Woods – an equally crisp player at this point in his career, ...

Toshiko Akiyoshi/Lew Tabackin Big Band

Long Yellow Road
RCA, 1974. Near Mint-
A 70s classic from the team of Toshiko Akioshi and Lew Tabackin – a duo who did for the jazz ensemble mode in their generation what Kenny Clarke and Francy Boland did in the 60s! The material here is wonderfully inventive – the kind of compositions that Toshiko wouldn't have even ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA/Pickwick, 1962. Near Mint-
A reunion of sorts for Paul Desmond and Gerry Mulligan – given that the pair had played together on record 5 years before, in a similar session for Verve! This album's almost lighter and more airy than the previous one – as it's done in a mode that echoes strongly with Desmond's own ... LP, Vinyl record album

Road Time
RCA, 1976. Very Good+ 2LP
A great little live set from the glory days of the Toshiko Akiyoshi/Lew Tabackin Big Band – a series of performances from Japan, recorded in 1976, all featuring the ensemble at its best! The double-length nature of the record takes the group even farther than usual – really letting ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1967. Very Good+
A beautiful bit of lost Getz from the 60s – a record of incredible depth that's somehow gotten lost in the shuffle of time! The album has Stan playing at Tanglewood with a core group that includes Gary Burton, Jim Hall, Steve Swallow, and Roy Haynes, plus musical backings by the Boston Pops ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1965. Near Mint-
One of Paul Horn's groovier albums from the 60s – and a record that features some nice arrangements by Lalo Schifrin! As the title might make you guess, the album's kind of a "jazz mass", and replicates the Kyrie, Gloria, and Offertory progression of a regular Catholic mass. The ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, Early 60s. Very Good+
70s repackaging of Desmond Blue – a cool jazz classic from altoist Paul Desmond and guitarist Jim Hall! The album was recorded under Desmond's name, but Hall's the guitarist throughout, and his playing lends an indescribably wonderful edge to the set, making the album a real team effort! ...

RCA, 1975. Sealed
One of a few key efforts done by Michel Legrand for RCA in the 70s – sessions that stand out as some of his best jazz work from the decade, and which present Legrand in unfettered brilliance, both as a player and arranger! This live date still has the original compositions and sense of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Insights
RCA, 1976. Near Mint-
Always-amazing work from the team of pianist Toshiko Akiyoshi and reedman Lew Tabackin – and a set that may well be one of the ensemble's most ambitious records to date – given that side two features a long, complicated suite that has roots in older Japanese musical styles! The balance ... LP, Vinyl record album
