Love

LP (Item 68518) Muse, 1982 — Condition: Very Good+

Jon's going back to the Lambert, Hendricks, & Ross format here – working with a group of singers known as Company (featuring family members Michele and Judith Hendricks), running through vocalese versions of jazz tunes with the same solo line trading style used by LHR in the 50s and 60s. The songs are pretty hip, and the backing is mostly small combo or trio instrumentation. Titles include "Love", "Tell Me The Truth", "The Swinging Groove Merchant", "In A Harlem Airshaft", "Willie's Tune", "Lil Darlin", and "Bright Moments".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Stolen Moments
Muse, 1978. Very Good+
One of his best for Muse, with a beautiful set of jazzy vocal grooves that includes his reading of "Stolen Moments" (later made famous by United Future Organization), plus "D.C. Farewell" and an excellent version of "Waters of March". Warm and breezy, with that ... LP, Vinyl record album

A second helping of songs from the Nat King Cole songbook – served up by Mark Murphy as one of his most sensitive albums of the time!

Eddie Jefferson

There I Go Again
Prestige, Early 50s/1960s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
A really great overview of the career of Eddie Jefferson – one that begins with his first few vocal singles of the 50s, and follows him through album work for Riverside and Prestige in the 60s! Jefferson's contribution to jazz is tremendous – as he was one of the first to set lyrics to ... LP, Vinyl record album
Flying Dutchman, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold
Leon Thomas takes his vocals to new heights – moving past the straight spiritual jazz modes of his work with Pharoah Sanders, to embrace a whole host of new styles too! There's a slight trace of the blues promised in the title, but always inflected through a more soulful approach overall ... LP, Vinyl record album

Etta Jones

So Warm
Prestige, Early 60s. Very Good+
Etta Jones is definitely nice and warm here – working with some great backings from Oliver Nelson, who mixes in a bit of strings with the usual jazzy punch he was delivering at the time! Jones' vocals are at the height of her early powers here – working with poise, class, and a heck of ... LP, Vinyl record album

... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, Late 50s. Very Good+
In our opinion, this "comeback" material by Rushing was way better than his original work from the late 30s. He's got more of a sense of control here, and his approach to the material is extremely thoughtful, and always tinged with a good sense of jazz, making it swing a bit more than on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Argo, 1964. Very Good+
One of the few rare albums from Jean DuShon – a very cool 60s jazz singer, working here with hip small combo backings from the Herman Foster Trio! You might know Herman from his work with Lou Donaldson, and his group here really bring a lot to the set – on titles that include "Don' ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jon Hendricks

Tell Me The Truth
Arista, 1975. Very Good+
One of the greatest records ever by Jon Hendricks – one of our favorite male jazz singers of all time! The album's an obscure 70s session that features Jon opening up from earlier days – moving into a bit of soul, a bit of funk, yet still keeping things really strong on the jazz tip. ...
