More Than Meets The Ear

LP (Item 71579) World Pacific, 1968 — Condition: Very Good
Gatefold

A great Jean Luc Ponty album – quite possibly his best, with a hip approach that's more MPS than World Pacific! The record has Ponty working under the supervision of George Gruntz, with an incredibly hip group that includes Carmell Jones on trumpet, Leo Wright on alto and flute, Daniel Humair on drums, and Gruntz himself on piano – a really great lineup that brings together late 60s Europea and Cali groovy styles! Tracks are skittish, jaunty, exploratory, and even a bit funky – in that groovy late 60s MPS/Saba way – and the album features some nice originals that include "Pacific Drove", "Fort Ord Canon", "Pebble Beach Walk", and "3 + 2 = 1".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has surface wear and some splitting on the spine.)

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.

Mystical Adventures
Atlantic, 1982. Near Mint-
Definitely some mystical adventures here from Jean-Luc Ponty – one of the few artists on the violin who can make it come up with sounds like this – weird cool and spacey elements that sound great next to the album's use of organ, keyboard, and Fender Rhodes! The album features two long ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rich A La Rakha
World Pacific, Late 60s. Very Good Gatefold
A pretty hip record – a lot cooler than you'd expect from Buddy Rich! The record features Rich playing with a group of Indian musicians lead by Alla Rakha on tabla, conducted by Ravi Shankar, who also wrote all the material on the album – and Paul Horn also joins the group for a bit of ...

Gerry Mulligan & Chet Baker

Timeless
World Pacific, Early 50s. Very Good+
A 60s collection of older material cut by Mulligan and Baker in the early 50s – pulled from a set of recordings done by Pacific Jazz, when both players were at their simple best! The format is often very simple – mostly quartet or quintet format – some with Baker and Mulligan in ... LP, Vinyl record album
Riverside, 1959. Near Mint-
A unique large group effort from Thelonious Monk – but one that bristles with all the angular energy of his other great work for Riverside! The group here is a tentet – filled with excellent players who include Donald Byrd, Phil Woods, Pepper Adams, Eddie Bert, Robert Northern, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Willie Williams

House Calls
New Note, 1987. Near Mint-
A great album of soulful tenor work from Willie Williams – with some great rhythm support from Ronnie Mathews on piano, Curtis Lundy on bass, and Kenny Washington on drums – very much in that great space the New Note label hit during the mid 80s! Tracks include "House Calls", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Archie Shepp

Kwanza
Impulse, 1969/1974. Very Good+ Gatefold
A brilliant little album from Archie Shepp – material recorded on a variety of dates at the end of the 60s, but packaged together as an extremely soulful set in the mid 70s! There's a feel here that rivals some of the best moments of the Attica Blues years – a mix of spiritual soul ... LP, Vinyl record album

Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers

Tough!
Cadet, 1957. Sealed
One of those obscure sessions recorded during the years after the time Blakey and Horace Silver broke up, and before he reestablished himself as a key leader on Blue Note during 1958. Features a striking early lineup of the Jazz Messengers featuring Jackie McLean(alto) and Bill Hardman(trumpet) ... LP, Vinyl record album

Roswell Rudd

Everywhere
Impulse, 1966. Very Good+ Gatefold
One of the greatest albums ever from trombonist Roswell Rudd – an early Impulse Records session, cut right at a time when Rudd was a crucial part of the New York "new thing" scene in the 60s! The album's almost more of an ESP session from its lineup – which includes Giuseppi ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1963. Very Good+
A real cooker of a set – and one that features Wynton's piano over some great larger backings from Claus Ogerman! The style of the set is really wonderful – as Wynton plays with a core smaller group that includes Kenny Burrell on guitar, plus regulars Paul Chambers on bass and Jimmy ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1962. Very Good+
Paul Winter's classic sextet is recorded here in both Rio and New York – one of three different sessions that Winter cut for Columbia in the 60s – all records that explore his own love of the bossa at a time when it was coincidentally very good business to be doing so! Tracks are light ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, 1958/1974. Sealed 2LP Gatefold
Double LP set that brings together two Coltrane sides for Prestige from the late 50's – Black Pearls and The Believer. Both LPs are nice easy blowing hard bop albums that feature Coltrane in a relaxed setting that lets him open up and get very exploratory in his solos. Donald Byrd's playing ...
