Jimmy Raney With Sonny Clark

LP (Item 677125) Vogue (Japan), 1954 — Condition: Near Mint-

A classic French session from one of the greatest American jazz guitarists of the 50s – the legendary Jimmy Raney, a player who mixed his hard-edge tone with a magically fluid groove! Jimmy's playing here on some great single-note lines – alongside a set of players that include Bobby White on drums, Red Mitchell on bass, and Sonny Clark on piano – coming together in a relaxed, intimate format – one that lets Jimmy's guitar get ample space to stretch out on the set. Titles include "Once In A While", "Body & Soul", "Stella By Starlight", and "You Go To My Head". Also fetaures a few tracks with a French group that includes Maurice Vander on piano and Bobby Jasper on tenor.  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Nice Japanese pressing!)

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.
