Oscar Peterson Trio + One

LP (Item 74692) Mercury, 1964 — Condition: Near Mint-

Oscar Peterson's trio is augmented here by a famous guest – trumpeter Clark Terry, whose horn adds a nice bit of punctuation to the set, and makes the record a strong standout in the 60s catalogs of both players! The addition of Terry to the record is a great one – as Clark's rising fame at the time merges nicely with the popularity of the Peterson group – and since both players share a talent for mixing earthy moments with tighter playing, the whole thing comes off pretty darn nicely! Peterson's piano is supported by rhythm work from Ray Brown on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums – and Terry not only plays trumpet and flugelhorn, but also vocalizes a slight bit too – sometimes at the same point he's playing his horn! Titles include "Mumbles", "Mack The Knife", "Jim", "Blues For Smedley", "Brotherhood Of Man", and "Incoherent Blues".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Late 60s red label stereo pressing.)

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.

Mercury, Mid 60s. Very Good+
Very groovy stuff from Quincy – a mix of jazz, soundtrack, and popular themes, all done in that soulful swinging style that Quincy virtually helped invent back in the 60s! The album's got plenty of great groovers that take a popular tune and kind of turn it on its ear – takes on tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gigi Gryce

Reminiscin'
Mercury, Early 60s. Very Good+
A great lost date from the wonderful Gigi Gryce – a set that features the altoist in an sextet, but often swinging with a looser vibe than on some of his better-known albums from the 50s! There's a mix of soulful and modern here that's not unlike the Art Farmer/Benny Golson Jazztet – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Maynard Ferguson

Stratospheric
EmArcy/Mercury, Mid 50s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Great early sides for Emarcy – most recorded on the LA scene in the 50s, with players who include Herb Geller on alto, Conte Candoli on trumpet, Bud Shank on flute and alto, Bob Cooper on tenor, and Bob Gordon on baritone sax! LP, Vinyl record album

Erroll Garner

Garnering
Mercury, Early 50s. Very Good+
This set's definitely full of Garnering – that lopingly rhythmic approach to the keys that set Erroll apart from all the rest back in the day – in a mode that almost sounds like he's making things up as he goes along, deciding which course to take at the very last moment. The album's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Houston Person

Pure Pleasure
Mercury, 1976. Very Good
Slicker than usual for Houston Person, but still a pretty nice album of tighly produced R&B-oriented jazz. The group includes a lot of hip players, like Cecil Bridgewater, Paul Griffin, and Bruce Nazarian – and the record has arrangements by Jimmy Roach. Tracks are long, and titles ...

Buddy Johnson

Rock N Roll Stage Show
Mercury/Wing, Mid 50s. Very Good-
Titles include "Doot Doot Dow", "Any Day Now", "It's Obdacious", "Ain't But One", "A 12", and "I'm Just Your Fool". LP, Vinyl record album

Stephane Grappelli

Improvisations
Mercury, 1956. Very Good
Not as freely improvised as you might think – but a nice set from the mid 50s, issued here with bonus unreleased tracks, and one that features Grappelli as the lead soloist in a quartet with Maurice Vander on piano and harpsichord, Pierre Michelot on bass, and Baptiste Reilles on drums. ...

Teddy Wilson & Red Norvo

Improvisations (10 inch LP)
Mercury, Early 50s. Very Good-

Charles Earland

Live At The Lighthouse
Prestige, 1972. Very Good
A real killer from Earland! The record swings incredibly hard, with a tight jazzy groove that sounds like his early work for Prestige from the first few albums. The band includes lesser known players like trumpeter Elmer Coles, alto player James Vass, and conga player Kenneth Nash – but ... LP, Vinyl record album
Impulse, 1966. Near Mint- Gatefold
John Coltrane returns to the Village Vanguard – but his sound here is a lot more far-reaching than a few years before! The album's a great counterpart to the first Vanguard session – as it takes all of the bold, soaring energy of that date, and balances it with the newly introspective ... LP, Vinyl record album
