LP (Item 683987) Verve, Mid 50s — Condition: Very Good

A collection of recordings from 1953 and 1955, with Ray Brown, Barney Kessel, and Herb Ellis.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(VSP pressing.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Nigerian Marketplace
Pablo, 1981. Near Mint-
An evocative title, and one that really sets the stage for the great sound of the record – an Oscar Peterson album that's a bit more open and flowing than usual – with some great long tracks, and a mighty soulful sound throughout!

Verve, 1955. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold.
2 classic albums from Oscar Peterson – packaged together in one 70s collection! First up is In a Romantic Mood – a rare "with strings" date! We love Oscar Peterson with strings – a setting he never got to use that often, given the popularity of his famous trio ... LP, Vinyl record album

Oscar Peterson

With Respect To Nat
Limelight, 1965. Very Good+
Oscar Peterson pays tribute to the late Nat King Cole – not only on piano, but also with a bit of vocals as well! Given how rarely Oscar sings on record, the album's a real treat – especially as his vocals capture the spirit of Cole surprisingly well – not exactly like Nat, but ... LP, Vinyl record album
MPS, 1968. Near Mint-
The first of a series of great "private" recordings that Oscar Peterson did for the MPS label in the late 60s – sessions done at the home of label owner Hans Georg Brunner Schwer, in a laidback and easygoing style that's different than some of his American work of the time! The ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1959. Very Good
Oscar pays tribute to Frank – but he uses his keys, not his voice – to come up with some great renditions of tunes from Sinatra's classic Capitol years! It's true that Peterson was known to vocalize on some sessions (most notably on his tribute to Nat King Cole, recorded a few years ... LP, Vinyl record album

Oscar Peterson In Russia
Pablo, 1974. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Oscar Peterson in Russia – a rare Soviet concert performance that has the master stretching out in solo, duo, and trio formation! The set begins with Oscar hitting the keys on his own, then working with bassist Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen, then moving into full trio grooves as the drums of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1959. 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 ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stan Getz & Joao Gilberto

Getz/Gilberto
Verve, 1963. Very Good Gatefold
A landmark record – both in 60s jazz and bossa nova – and a set that not only bridged worlds of music, but set the tone for so many other albums to come! By the time of this 1964 set, Stan Getz had already issued a few bossa nova experiments on Verve – but this pairing with ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1963. Very Good
The sound of Gerry Mulligan in the early 60s – and one of the best records by his larger than usual Concert Jazz Band! Given Gerry's piano-less experiments of the 50s, it's surprising to actually have him as the pianist on this session – hitting the keys with a nice light touch, so ... LP, Vinyl record album
