Kirk's Works (Emarcy)

LP (Item 6900) EmArcy, Early 60s/1977 — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP Gatefold

Cool 2LP collection of some of Roland Kirk's best stuff from his Mercury years, including a motherlode of tracks that are very very hard to find on LP! Tracks include "Reed & Deeds", "Rip Rig & Panic", "Where Monk & Mingus Live", "Get Out Of Town", "The Haunted Melody", "Between The Fourth & Fifth Step", "Black Diamond", "Domino", "Meeting On Termini's Corner", "Raouf", and "No Tonic Pres". Very cool, very hard, and with loads of Roland's cool reed work!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has a small corner cut, light surface wear, and some fraying on the spine.)

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.

Roland Kirk

Volunteered Slavery
Atlantic, 1969. Very Good
Our favorite album ever from Roland Kirk – and a beautiful mix of two different sides of his genius! Side one's got Roland doing these crazy takes on late 60's pop cuts like "My Cherie Amour" and "Say a Little Prayer", plus his own "songs", done with soulful ... LP, Vinyl record album
Argo, 1960. Near Mint-
Despite the fact that the title's "Introducing Roland Kirk", it's not actually Kirk's first album – but it is a heck of a smoker with a very unusual sound! The session features Roland with a Chicago group that includes Ira Sullivan on trumpet, Don Garrett on bass, and Ron Burton on ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Williams

John Williams Trio
EmArcy, 1955. Very Good
Don't get this John Williams confused with the bigger-name soundtrack composer of later years – because this set is pure piano jazz all the way through, played by an artist who shined briefly with Stan Getz in the mid 50s! Although little-known, Williams is a great link between bop and ... LP, Vinyl record album
EmArcy, 1956. Very Good

Gerry Mulligan

Mainstream Of Jazz
EmArcy, 1956. Very Good
Gerry Mulligan's still far from the mainstream of jazz on this sweet little set – a great date that expands nicely from the mellower styles of the Pacific Jazz years – expanding the group a bit, with some really great results! In addition to Mulligan's usual baritone sax, Gerry also ... LP, Vinyl record album
EmArcy, Late 40s. Very Good+
Important early recordings from the key years of bebop and cool jazz – with Mercury sides by Red Rodney, Lennie Tristano, Chubby Jackson, Bill Harris, Gene Ammons, and Billy Eckstine! LP, Vinyl record album

Terry Gibbs

Terry Gibbs
EmArcy, 1955. Very Good+
Excellent small group work from vibist Terry Gibbs – just the kind of set that shows why he was one of the best known players on his instrument in the 50s! Gibbs has a clear, clean style here that's never too laidback, nor too prone to over-done flourishes – a style that was born in ... LP, Vinyl record album
