30 Years In 30 Minutes

LP (Item 718728) Toshiba (Japan), 1977 — Condition: Near Mint-

Dixieland tunes played by leader Kitamura on clarinet, with Kouichi Kawabe on trombone, Akio Mitsui on trumpet, Akira Kumasaka and Yoshitaka Akimitsu on piano, Ichiro Masuda on vibes, Ikuo Ikezawa on bass, and Hiroshi Sunaga on drums.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes the insert.)

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.

Buddy Rich

Big Band Machine
Groove Merchant, 1976. Very Good+ Gatefold
Pretty darn great stuff from Buddy Rich! The album's got Buddy working in a tight funky mode – with strong players like Steve Marcus on soprano and tenor, Cornell Dupree on guitar, Ray Armando on congas, Greg Kogan on piano, and Lloyd Michaels on trumpet – all of whom come together in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Thad Jones & Mel Lewis

Consummation
Blue Note, 1970. Very Good+ Gatefold
One of the greatest records ever cut by the Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Orchestra – way way more than a big band jazz session, and a fantastically hip batch of grooves that encompasses a wealth of styles! The Jones/Lewis group could sometimes sound a bit clunky and overhashed – but on this ... LP, Vinyl record album

Thad Jones & Mel Lewis

Central Park North
Solid State, 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold
Excellent work from the team of Thad Jones and Mel Lewis – arguably one of their best albums from the late 60s, and a set that's got some really great funky big band numbers! There's a nice bouncing groove to the group that they normally don't have – possibly because Richard Davis is ... LP, Vinyl record album

Buddy Rich

Different Drummer
RCA, 1971. Very Good+
A 70s gem from Buddy Rich – a session that's cut with some really tightly arranged backings, but done in a way that actually has Buddy kicking the kit even more than usual! Some of the best tunes on the set have a really wicked sense of funk – one that uses a bit more space than in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dexter Gordon

Sophisticated Giant
Columbia, 1977. Very Good+
A really wonderful album from Dexter Gordon's later years at Columbia – and a rare session that pairs larger arrangements with his soulful voice on the tenor and soprano saxophone! Although other players worked often in this mode, the record may well be the only one of its type for Dexter ... LP, Vinyl record album

Woody Herman

My Kind Of Broadway
Columbia, 1965. Very Good+
Broadway tunes, but some very hip ones – thanks to mightily swinging work from the Woody Herman group of the 60s! Many of the numbers here are familiar ones pulled from big shows of the 1950s and early 60s – but Herman and crew change things up wonderfully by using the tunes as lively ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gene Chandler

Gene Chandler Situation
Mercury, 1970. Very Good+
Killer stuff from Gene! After recording a few sadly overlooked albums for Brunwsick, Gene hit big big big with this killer record on Mercury! The record virtually defines the Chicago soul sound of the late 60s – with arrangements by Tom Tom, production by Gene, and a great loping soul ... LP, Vinyl record album

Martin Denny

Exotica Vol 2
Liberty, Late 50s. Very Good
The second album in Denny's legendary Exotica trilogy – a set of records that provided the extreme definition of the small sub-genre that today has become the stuff of legend! Denny's still working here in his classic format – a small group with heavy piano lines, playful percussion, ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1959. Very Good
This one's a bit subdued, but it's still classic RCA material by Tito – with a strong easy Latin vibe, of the sort that went down very big with the Catskills crowd. The record's got plenty of Cha Cha and Mambo Latin jazz tracks, most of which are covers, apart from the originals "Dancing ... LP, Vinyl record album
