Virtuoso Guitar

LP (Item 682083) Crystal Clear, 1977 — Condition: Near Mint-

Jazzy guitar from the great Laurindo Almeida – in a setting that includes Emil Richards on vibes, Clare Fischer onp iano, and Chuck Flores on drums and percussion!  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(White vinyl pressing. Cover has light wear.)

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.

Eric Dolphy

Out To Lunch
Blue Note, 1964. Very Good+
One of Eric Dolphy's lasting classics – and possibly the ultimate album of "new thing" jazz from the mid 60s! The record's got an even sharper edge than previous Dolphy recordings for Prestige – a really unique combination of instrumentation that includes Freddie Hubbard on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dave Baby Cortez

Tweetie Pie
Roulette, Mid 60s. Very Good+
Not as funky as the albums he'd later cut in the early 70s, but still a lot of short groovy little organ tracks with the Baby Cortez feel to them. Hugo & Luigi produce his renditions of pop songs and R&B numbers that were popular at the time, like "Shake", "Watermelon ... LP, Vinyl record album

Werner-Rosengren Swedish Jazz Quartet

Bombastica!
Jazzland, 1960. Very Good+
Excellent bit of modernist jazz from Sweden, recorded in Stockholm, and issued in the states by Jazzland. The brilliant young tenor player Bernt Rosengren teams with wild piano player Lars Werner to play an amazing set of originals by Werner like "Bombastica", "Latin Beat", ... LP, Vinyl record album
Creative World, 1973. Very Good+
Funky stuff from Stan – a very different album than usual! The style here is 70s big band funk – mixing the usual horn-heavy frontline with some electric bass and more of the groove that was showing up with the European big bands at the time – particularly those on the MPS label. ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gene Harris

Astral Signal
Blue Note, 1974. Very Good-
A masterpiece from Gene Harris – an album that's probably been his biggest influence on the sound of soul in the 21st Century, and for good reason too! The set moves way beyond both Harris' acoustic piano roots in the Three Sounds, and his other electric sides of the 70s – into sublime ... LP, Vinyl record album

Charles Earland

Black Talk!
Prestige, 1970. Near Mint-
A pivotal album in the development of the use of the Hammond organ in jazz – and Charles Earland's first exposure to a large audience! Durign the 60s, Charles was bumping around the Philly scene quite a bit – and recorded some small group indie sides that first gave a glimpse of his ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gil Melle

Tome VI
Verve, 1967. Very Good+
An amazing little album from the legendary Gil Melle – a set that's billed as the first album of "electronic jazz", and which features Gil working with his Jazz Electronauts combo! Although Melle's perhaps best known for his baritone sax modern sides of the 50s for Blue Note and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hank Mobley

Straight No Filter
Blue Note, 1965/1986. Very Good+
No filters here, as Hank Mobley's sound is clean, lean, and right on the money – hitting that newly-sophisticated groove of the Caddy For Daddy years in this sweet unissued set! The date was recorded in the 60s, but unissued by Blue Note for many years – another one of those head-scratc ... LP, Vinyl record album

Freddie Hubbard

Red Clay
CTI, 1970. Very Good+ Gatefold
Amazing work from Freddie Hubbard – one of his best albums ever! The title cut's a classic, but all cuts on the album are great – and really set a whole new standard for soul jazz in the 70s! Unlike the freer runs of Miles Davis, Freddie takes things into territory here that's open, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Charlie Parker

Charlie Parker Story #2
Verve, Early 50s. Very Good+
Volume 2 in Verve's LP collection of Parker's work for the label, with a mix of tracks that includes some straight quartet material, and some recorded with strings from the Midnight Jazz At Carnegie Hall LP. The quartet sides are some of the best, and include "Repetition", "Laird ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby Hackett/Billy Butterfield/Luiz Henrique

Bobby/Billy/Brasil
Verve, Late 60s. Near Mint-
Great stuff – and a beautiful LP that mixes Verve production with the moody Brazilian sounds of Luiz Henrique and Sivuca! Henrique delivers his usual breathy soft beautiful vocals, and Sivuca plays accordion and hums in the background, in that jazzy mode that he was using during the late 60s ...
