Steve's Songs

LP (Item 689984) Dot, Late 50s — Condition: Near Mint-

Manny Albam plays the music of Steve Allen – with a group that includes solos from Gene Quill on alto, Al Cohn on tenor, Bob Brookmeyer on trombone and either Nick Travis or Ernie Royal on trumpets!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Stereo pressing with deep groove. Cover has a cutout hole and a stereo sticker.)

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.

Maiden Voyage
Cadet, 1968. Very Good

Ramsey on his own is great enough at this point – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Milt Jackson & Coleman Hawkins

Bean Bags
Atlantic, 1958. Very Good+
A wonderful little record – a real standout in both the careers of Milt Jackson and Coleman Hawkins! The album captures Hawk during his great later years – that time when his sound was even more soulful and inventive than ever – with lots of odd modern undercurrents that really ... LP, Vinyl record album
Interlude, 1958. Very Good
An unusual session, given the date – as 1957 would hardly be the year that anyone would need to "present bop" – but a great one nonetheless, and a record that we'd rank right up there with the best work of pianist George Wallington! The album's noteworthy not only because it's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tadd Dameron

Magic Touch
Riverside, 1962. Near Mint-
One of Tadd Dameron's last true jazz sides – featuring the bop maestro composing, arranging, and conducting for a large group that includes Bill Evans, Johnny Griffin, Joe Wilder, Clark Terry, and Philly Joe Jones.

Buddy Rich

New One!
Pacific Jazz, 1967. Very Good+ Gatefold
Very hard-burning work from Buddy's hip band of the mid 60s – a large ensemble, but one that features searing horn parts that cut through the bigger arrangements with ease! Buddy really had an ear for tuning power with personality at this point in his career – and although the group ... LP, Vinyl record album

David Liebman

Light'n Up Please
A&M, 1976. Sealed

Johnny Hodges & Wild Bill Davis

Blue Rabbit
Verve, 1963. Very Good
Johnny Hodges works with some nice small group backing here – only just a bit of organ from Wild Bill Davis, plus more from Ray Jackson, a Hammond player we don't know at all – and other work by Kenny Burrell and Mundell Lowe on guitar, Wendell Marshall and Richard Davis on bass, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Command, Late 60s. Very Good Gatefold
One of the coolest, grooviest moog albums you'll ever hope to buy – a wonderful foray into the new world of synthetic sounds, done by pianist Dick Hyman – who was working in a straight jazz format just a decade before! Dick turns out to be a wonderful talent on the moog – very ... LP, Vinyl record album

Cheryl Lynn

Cheryl Lynn
Columbia, 1978. Very Good+
Massive work from the great Cheryl Lynn – and a key bridge between late 70s disco and the newer grooves of the 80s club scene! The album's a mix of midtempo groovers with a few mellower tracks – and it's got a tight, slightly jazzy sound that was very fresh at the time, and which still ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jeffree

Jeffree
MCA, 1979. Very Good+
This nice soulful sleeper was not that recognized in the 70s, but in the 90s, it's become a huge favorite in the Chicago's steppers scene, thanks to the excellent two-step groover "Love's Gonna Last". It's a great cut, with sweet soulful vocals, and a totally catchy midtempo groove ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chicago

Chicago III
Columbia, 1971. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
Chicago on their third LP – still humming strong!
