Journey To The One

LP (Item 7169) Theresa, 1980 — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP Gatefold
Also available
Pharoah Sanders — Journey To The One (180 gram pressing) ... LP 54.99

A stunning little record from Pharoah Sanders – a double-length set that has all the soul and spirit of his Impulse Records classics, but with a very different vibe! There's a sense of focus here that's tremendous – as if Sanders has found a way to take the energy of his side-long performances and hone them to a level that's maybe even more expressive in its economy – maybe a streamlining of spiritual jazz for the new decade, but not at a level that tries to sound commercial or mainstream at all. Sanders is joined here by a host of equally well-voiced players who really match his energy – Joe Bonner and John Hicks on piano, Eddie Henderson on flugelhorn, Ray Drummond on bass, and Idris Muhammad on drums – and the set also features a bit of great work on koto from Yoko Ito Gates as well. Titles include the classic "You've Got To Have Freedom" – a fantastic soaring anthem of joy – plus "After The Rain", "Soledad", "Greetings To Idris", "Doktor Pitt", "Think About The One", "Bedria", and "Yemenja".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Early 00s reissue. Cover has minimal wear.)

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.

Pharoah Sanders

Love Will Find A Way
Arista, 1978. Very Good+
A beautiful little record by Pharoah Sanders – quite different than most of his other recordings of the 70s, and done in a smoothly jazzy mode that also features plenty of soul! Sanders did the set in collaboration with Norman Connors – and the style is in that same great mix of mellow ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jack McDuff

Prelude
Prestige, 1964. Very Good
Soul jazz organ with big band? It's been done – and never better than on this set – which features Brother Jack's classic quartet – with George Benson, Red Hollway, and Joe Dukes – next to the the screamin' orchestrations of a hip Benny Golson! Golson leads a crack band ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gabor Szabo

Spellbinder
Impulse, 1966. Very Good Gatefold
Breezy brilliance from the legendary Gabor Szabo – and one of the grooviest albums the Hungarian guitarist recorded during the 60s!

Johnny Hammond

Breakout
Kudu, 1971. Very Good
A massive groover from the great Johnny Hammond – the famous 60s organist from the soul jazz scene, getting a whole new sound for the 70s here on the CTI label!

Limelight, 1959. Very Good Gatefold
A great session from 1959 – one that features John Coltrane playing with the Adderley group, recorded in Chicago when they were stopping through the city with Miles Davis' combo at the time! In fact, since the rhythm section includes Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Jimmy Cobb – and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wes Montgomery

Tequila
Verve, 1966. Very Good Gatefold
A classic from Wes Montgomery – and exactly the kind of record that made him a legend in the 60s!

Jimmy Smith

Hoochie Cooche Man
Verve, 1966. Very Good Gatefold
Jimmy pays tribute to an earlier generation of R&B – in a hard-wailing set of soul jazz, done with backings from the legendary Oliver Nelson! A few tracks feature vocals by Jimmy, in a rough bluesy style, and others have some harmonica by Buddy Lucas – in a raspy, hard-wailing mode ... LP, Vinyl record album
Roulette, Early 60s. Very Good
One of Louie's hippest records – a hard grooving set of tracks recorded live, with a swinging off-beat edge that's very different than some of his other straighter work. The players include Conte Candoli on trumpet, Joe Maini on alto, Willie Green on tenor, and Bill Perkins on baritone ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mark Murphy

Bridging A Gap
Muse, 1972. Very Good-
One of Mark Murphy's earliest records for Muse, and an essential release in his developing style in the 70's.

Johnny Bristol

Bristol's Creme
Atlantic, 1976. Very Good+
An excellent smooth soul groover from Johnny Bristol! The album has Johnny stepping into a more sophisticated groove than he used on his early 70s albums for MGM – mixing together styles that sound a lot like those used by artists like Leroy Hutson or Leon Ware at the time, a mix of well-prod ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA (Brazil), Late 70s. Very Good+
A great album by Paulo Moura – and one of the most perfect realizations of his strong ability to mix jazz with more traditional Brazilian rhythms and instrumentation! The album is a wonderfully conceived bridge between cultures and periods in Brazil – performed by Moura on a rootsy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Marvin Gaye

Here, My Dear
Motown, 1978. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Wonderful stuff – and one of our favorite-ever Marvin Gaye albums! This is the legendary two-record set that Marvin wrote and recorded as an alimony payment to his ex-wife Anna Gordy (the story's pretty long, and we won't get into it here – suffice it to say that when stars get a ...
