Odalisque – The Music Of Buddy DeFranco

LP (Item 736750) Verve, Early 50s — Condition: Very Good+
(Verve trumpeter logo pressing, with deep groove. Cover has a small split on top, light aging.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Verve, 1957. Near Mint-
Not just a Benny Goodman tribute record – but instead a sweet west coast jazz reworking of older themes – with Don Fagerquist on trumpet, Barney Kessel on guitar, Larry Bunker and Victor Feldman on vibes, George Auld on tenor, and Carl Perkins on piano! LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1957. Very Good+
Buddy DeFranco plays tunes associated with Artie Shaw – but in a completely different way than before – with a wider-open swing for the 50s! The work here is all small combo, not big band – and there's a free-flowing groove that's totally great – a sound that carries echoes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dizzy Gillespie

Dizzy In Greece
Verve, 1956. Very Good
Dizzy's in Greece, looking very cool in a fez on the cover – and really wailing hard with a larger group that includes Billy Mitchell, Charlie Persip, Lee Morgan, Wynton Kelly, and Phil Woods! The mode here is still quite boppish, despite the larger size of the ensemble – but Dizzy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Junior Mance

Junior
Verve, 1959. Near Mint-
A groovy early album from pianist Junior Mance – one of the first we've ever seen with him as a leader, and a rare date recorded at the end of the 50s for Verve! The style here is a fair bit like some of Junior's work of the early 60s – a definite soul jazz leaning, but also some more ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1955. Very Good
Count Basie taken down a few notches – not in quality, but in terms of the size of the group – as Oscar really opens up some of the Count's standards in a whole new way, by playing them with a stripped-down quartet that features Herb Ellis on guitar, Ray Brown on bass, and Buddy Rich on ...

Getz/Gilberto
Verve, 1963. Very Good+ Gatefold
A landmark record – both in 60s jazz and bossa nova – and a set that not only bridged worlds of music, but set the tone for so many other albums to come! By the time of this 1964 set, Stan Getz had already issued a few bossa nova experiments on Verve – but this pairing with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Charlie Parker & Dizzy Gillespie

Bird & Diz (Verve)
Verve, Early 50s. Very Good+
A classic meeting of two giants from the early years of bop – altoist Charlie Parker and trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie – brought together here in a session that Norman Granz would later list as one of the truest realizations of his vision for recording jazz music! Parker's sharp lines are ... LP, Vinyl record album

Oscar Peterson

We Get Requests
Verve, 1964. Near Mint-
A key example of the popularity of the Oscar Peterson Trio in the mid 60s – an album of tracks that listeners wanted to hear done in the group's familiar style! The tunes are simple ones, mostly standards and 60s covers – but they're done by Oscar, Ray Brown, and Ed Thigpen in a mode ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lester Young

Pres & His Cabinet
Verve, Mid 50s. Very Good+
Small group material from Lester Youn sessions of the 50s for Verve – with additional solo work from Harry Edison on trumpet, Oscar Peterson and Hank Jones on piano, and Barney Kessel and Herb Ellis on guitar! LP, Vinyl record album

Langston Hughes with Charles Mingus

Weary Blues (Verve pressing)
VSP/Verve, 1958. Near Mint-
A landmark meeting of two talents! This rare session has the poet Langston Hughes reading his own jazz-based work, set to arrangements by Charles Mingus, with additional work by Horace Parlan. Hughes' voice is incredible – a bit frail, with a wispy integrity that really opens up his own ... LP, Vinyl record album
