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
Impulse, 1961/1974. Very Good- Gatefold
Early material, recorded in 1961 for Saturn, and rereleased and remastered by Impulse in the 70's, as part of their limited run of Arkestra releases. The album features prime small group playing by Ra, Gilmore, Patrick, Marshall Allen, Ronnie Boykins, and Tommy Hunter, with the tracks "Search ... LP, Vinyl record album

Horace Silver

Song For My Father
Blue Note, 1963. Very Good
An incredible record – the kind of album that only Blue Note could put out, and an instant classic that will sound wonderful forever! The album's truly one of the great ones – one of those Blue Notes that still makes you stop and pause when you hear it, even though you've heard it a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bill Barron

Variations In Blue
Muse, 1984. Near Mint-
An excellent session from modernist tenor giant Bill Barron – maybe not as all-out avant as some of his earlier work, but still pretty darn wonderful overall! Kenny Barron plays piano, and the group also features the great Jimmy Owens on trumpet, Ray Drummond on bass, and Ben Riley on drums. ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gary McFarland

In Sound
Verve, 1965. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of the grooviest albums of the 60s – a sublime blend of jazz, bossa, and easy – and a set that definitely lives up to its title! The album's probably the most perfect realization of the unique groove that Gary McFarland was going for back in the day – a mix of vibes, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny Rollins

Saxophone Colossus
Prestige, 1956. Near Mint-
Quite possibly THE greatest Sonny Rollins album of the early years – or at least the one that has received the most accolades over the years! The record is a brilliant batch of quartet tracks that reinvents bop through Sonny's complicated, yet seemingly automatic solos – an excellent ... LP, Vinyl record album

Phil Woods & Gene Quill

Phil & Quill
RCA, 1956. Near Mint-
A wonderful twin-alto session from the mid 50s – and one of our favorites from the RCA jazz years! Gene Quill was always one of the crisper, tighter alto talents of the time, and he's ably paired here with a young Phil Woods – an equally crisp player at this point in his career, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wes Montgomery

Down Here On The Ground
CTI/A&M, 1968. Very Good Gatefold
Super-dope work from the great Wes Montgomery – set to excellent early CTI arrangements from Don Sebesky and Deodato! The groove is nice and airy – with Wes' guitar floating over the top, yet still present enough to ring out loud and clear on all the tightly plucked notes – and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Three Sounds

Moods
Blue Note, 1960. Very Good
"Moods" is right – as the album's got a wonderfully dark undercurrent, one that makes it one of the most captivating early Three Sounds albums for Blue Note! Pianist Gene Harris leads a trio that includes Andrew Simpkins on bass and Bill Dowdy on drums – and even though the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers

Once Upon A Groove (aka Ritual)
Blue Note/Pacific Jazz, 1957/1980. Near Mint-
A hard-swinging cooker from Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers – recorded during the landmark year of 1957 – when Blakey's group was open to recording for a number of different labels, in a number of different settings! The set was originally done for the west coast stalwart Pacific ... LP, Vinyl record album

Art Farmer/Benny Golson Jazztet

Another Git Together
Mercury, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
One of our favorite records ever from the legendary Art Farmer/Benny Golson Jazztet – and a rare later date, recorded after their more famous albums for Chess! The lineup here is a bit unusual – in that a young Grachan Moncur III is in the combo on trombone – really adding some ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Floyd

Soul Street
Stax, 1974. Near Mint-
Funkier than usual for Eddie – with a sound that's almost in the same sort of mode that the Staple Singers were using at the time. There are hard drums underneath, warm electric keyboards on many cuts and a range of vocal styles by Eddie that show him pushing past the cliches of earlier ... LP, Vinyl record album
