Herb Alpert Presents Pete Jolly

LP (Item 7142) A&M, Late 60s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


One of the finest A&M records of the sixties, and one of the finest records that Pete Jolly ever cut – a fantastic little session that blends his sprightly piano with fuller backings by Marty Paich – jazzy, but also sweepingly wonderful – and presented here with a great balance between spaciousness and fullness! Pete's work on the acoustic piano has never been better – and the album features a sublime version of "Windows of the World", plus loads of other great tunes that "Serenata", "Dindi", "Love So Fine", and "For Carl". A record that never fails to delight us!  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Give A Damn
A&M, Late 60s. Very Good+
Great groovy work from pianist Pete Jolly – recorded live at the swingin Donte's in Hollywood, with a bit of horns added to his combo! There's a moody version of "The Look of Love", plus a nice groovy track called "Give A Damn". LP, Vinyl record album
Man-Child
Columbia, 1975. Very Good+
Funky mid 70s Herbie Hancock – one his funkiest albums of the era! Herbie plays a host of cool keyboards – like Fender Rhodes, Arp, and clavinet – and he's joined by a group that includes just about all of the Headhunters – including Paul Jackson on bass and Mike Clarke on ... LP, Vinyl record album
You, Baby
CTI/A&M, 1968. Very Good Gatefold
Nat Adderley demonstrates that he can be as funky as brother Cannonball in this nice set of short groovers recorded for CTI from the late 60s! The record is one of Nat's few funky ones, and he's got some nice backing by Joe Zawinul, Grady Tate, Ron Carter, and Jerome Richardson. Cuts have the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Third Cup
Cadet, 1969. Near Mint-
An amazing album by the great guitarist Eddie Fisher – and completely unlike his later funk records! Eddie plays stripped down jazz with a small combo that includes organ by Robert Selby, bass by Paul Jackson, and some rhythm guitar by Phil Westmoreland – and the twin-guitar approach ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tell It Like It Is
A&M/CTI, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold
An early George Benson groover from the A&M years of CTI – a set that's quite different than his famous 70s sets, with a really unique sound overall! The arrangements here are by Latin Soul maestro Marty Sheller – who brings some of the vibe to the set that he brought to his 60s ... LP, Vinyl record album
How Insensitive
Blue Note, 1969. Very Good
Another bold step forward in the too-short career of Duke Pearson – and one of the last few records before his untimely death! The session departs from previous Pearson work by using vocals on most tracks – sometimes a solo singer, either Andy Bey or Flora Purim, and sometimes a larger ... LP, Vinyl record album
Caliente
A&M, 1976. Near Mint-
One of Gato Barbieri's later recordings – but don't hold that against it! The set's a smoother effort than most of Gato's earlier work, but it's also still pretty darn soulful – done in a way that allows plenty of space for his raspy reed work on tenor to flow over the top of larger ... LP, Vinyl record album
Dr Chicago
Beehive, 1985. Sealed
A nice hardbop revival session for Clifford Jordan – recorded with a style that takes us back to his first years on wax – with an excellent lineup, and a very strong focus on the dynamic of the ensemble! The lineup includes Red Rodney on trumpet and flugelhorn, Jaki Byard on piano, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Higher Ground
Kudu, 1973. Very Good
Massive work from Johnny Hammond – stretching out here in some totally jamming grooves that really transform his style for the 70s! The sound here is a lot hipper and tighter than some of Hammond's more rough-edged soul jazz of the 60s – a groove that's a great precursor to his more ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warwick, 1960. Near Mint-
We're not sure what "soul-stream" is as a genre – but given the strength of this record, we'd be more than willing to grant it onto Curtis Fuller all by himself! The record's a gem that's even more obscure than Fuller's already-rare dates for Blue Note at the end of the 50s – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Upendo Ni Pamoja
Columbia, 1972. Very Good+
Sublime electric work from Ramsey Lewis! Ramsey's working here with his hip 70s group that included Morris Jennings and Cleveland Eaton, and he's playing some fantastic electric piano – a blend of funky grooves and soulful spiritualism, stripped down into a sound that's one of his leanest ... LP, Vinyl record album
Quintet
Columbia, 1977. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
A classic album of soulful hardbop from the mid 70s – one that features the classic VSOP group with Herbie Hancock on piano, Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Wayne Shorter on tenor, Ron Carter on bass, and Tony Williams on drums – all nicely returned to the acoustic splendor of their early ...
