Swift Are The Winds Of Life

LP (Item 7423) Survival, 1975 — Condition: Near Mint-

Duets between ex-Coltrane drummer Rashied Ali and avant violinist Leroy Jenkins. Jenkins has a haunting ability to generate a wide range of sounds on the violin – pushing him past the usual snoozy jazz violinists of his generation (like Jean-Luc Ponty), and which make him a perfect sound-sensitive foil for a percussionist like Ali. The record has 4 long tracks – "The Past", "It's For You", "The Stomp", and "Swift Are The Winds Of Life".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original pressing. Cover has some light wear, in one corner, but is great overall.)

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.

Ivan Boogaloo Joe Jones

Black Whip
Prestige, 1973. Very Good
Amazing stuff from Ivan Boogaloo Joe Jones! Unlike some of the other players on Prestige during the early 70s – who often got a bit weaker as the decade moved on, thanks to the departure of some of the better forces arranging and producing the records – Jones kept on playing hard, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ornette Coleman

Tomorrow Is the Question!
Contemporary, 1959. Very Good-
Tomorrow may be the question, but the record screams "today!" – and even this many years after its recording, this early set by Ornette Coleman has an energy and presence that cannot be denied! The sound here is kind of a rougher take on the mode that would gel more strongly on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Willis Jackson

Shuckin'
Prestige, Early 60s. Very Good
A sharp groover from Willis Jackson! Tough to find on wax, this early 60's session takes Willis' mean tenor sound, and adds a nice bossa groove to it – in a style that's similar to Ike Quebec's Samba Soul LP. There's lots of extra percussion, thanks to Montego Joe and Juan Amalbert of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Harvey Mandel

Snake
Janus, 1972. Very Good- Gatefold
Messed-up funky guitar from Harvey Mandel – with lots of freewheeling fuzzed-out tracks, in the manner of his best classic work! In a way, Harvey's later albums are even better than his first few, as he's getting a lot tighter on the strings – which means that he can pick up the groove ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Dyani With John Tchicai & Dudu Pukwana

Witchdoctor's Son
Steeplechase (Denmark), 1978. Very Good
A late 70s classic from South African bassist Johnny Dyani – and an album that reunites him with Dudu Pukwana, the saxophonist in their original group The Blue Notes! The album also features John Tchicai on both alto and soprano sax, as well as added guitar from Afredo Do Nascimento, plus ... LP, Vinyl record album

Charles Earland

Revelation
Mercury, 1977. Very Good
One of the fine fine albums of spacey keyboard funk that Charles cut for the Mercury label during the late 70s. Earland starts with a Herbie Hancock approach – and no surprise, he's got Paul Jackson and Harvey Mason in the group – but then he changes the groove to show off more of his ... LP, Vinyl record album

Arnett Cobb

Movin Right Along
Prestige, 1960. Very Good
Probably the best of Arnett's albums for Prestige – thanks to an incredible set of players that includes Bobby Timmons, Sam Jones, and Art Taylor. With a group like that it's hard to miss – and believe us, Arnett doesn't! Timmons' firey piano is a nice change from some of the more ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sam Jones

Soul Society
Riverside, 1960. Very Good
A fantastic lost soul jazz groover! The record is clearly one of the best ever cut by this fantastically overlooked bass player – and it's filled with a great set of players that includes Bobby Timmons, Nat Adderley, Charles Davis, and Jimmy Heath. The whole thing leaps along with that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Westbound, 1972. Very Good
Maybe the funkiest album ever cut for the legendary Westbound label in Detroit – and that's saying a lot, given that the company was the initial home to Funkadelic! Yet on this stunning full length set, The Counts maybe do that famous group one better – pushing aside their vocals for ... LP, Vinyl record album
Buddah, 1970. Very Good
Although this set was issued by Buddah in 1970, it's a great set featuring some of the earliest work that the Five Stairsteps recorded for Curtis Mayfield's Windy C label during the late 60s, under his production talents as well! We love all of the Burke brothers albums, both as a group and solo, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ismael Quintana

Ismael Quintana
Vaya, Mid 70s. Very Good
A stunning 70s album from the great Ismael Quintana – a singer who first rose to fame with Eddie Palmieri in the 60s, and who maybe gets an even greater sound on this solo set! Quintana's got one of the most expressive styles of the New York scene – a way of inflecting his notes to ... LP, Vinyl record album
