Eddie's Back In Town

LP (Item 748620) Krona, 1982 — Condition: Near Mint-

An obscure later album – a quartet date recorded by Frank Wright on his return to the US, as a tribute to the late Eddie Jefferson! Frank is on tenor – with Richard Williams on bass, Tony Smith on piano, and Gregory Bufford on drums – and all titles are original, and include "T&W", "Two For John", "Rotterdam Blues", "13th & 3rd", and "Stoveman".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has some light wear, but is nice 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.

Sandra (Germany), 1979. Near Mint-
A great little album from Frank Wright – pretty soulful, with an inside vibe that's more in a 70s spiritual soul jazz mode than some of Wright's other work. The title's a pretty strange one – as is the bluesy title track, which features Wright vocalizing a bit. The other numbers are ... LP, Vinyl record album

Shirley Scott

Latin Shadows
Impulse, 1965. Very Good Gatefold
A great album from Shirley Scott – with some excellent arrangements by Gary McFarland! We've always felt that Shirley plays best when she's not leading the group – when someone else is handling the arrangements, so that she can groove mightily on her own – and this album is a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Herbie Hancock

Fat Albert Rotunda
Warner, 1969. Very Good
The start of funky funky Herbie Hancock! This album's the first to feature Herbie really breaking away from his straight jazz work – moving into a groove that's nice and funky, using electric piano along with acoustic, to forge the sound that he'd develop famously over the 70s. The album's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Woody Shaw

Imagination
Muse, 1988. Sealed
A late date for Woody Shaw, but a great one too – a bit more straightforward than some of his more righteous albums of the 70s, but still proof that Shaw is easily one of the greatest trumpeters of his generation! The album's got a laidback sort of feel, and features a fair bit of familiar ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lennie Tristano

Lennie Tristano
Atlantic, 1955. Very Good
Darkly imaginative work from the great Lennie Tristano – and one of the few full albums he ever cut as a leader! The record features the incredible track "Turkish Mambo" – which has Tristano overdubbed 3 times in this dark modal way that's totally amazing, and which will hook ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy Lyons

Other Afternoons
BYG/Actuel (France), 1969. Very Good+ Gatefold
Jimmy Lyons' recordings for BYG/Actuel are among some of the best for the label, and this one from 1969 is a stellar session that features Lester Bowie on trumpet, Alan Silva on bass, and Andrew Cyrille on drums. All players are excellent, and they play together in a set of free tracks in which ... LP, Vinyl record album

Thelonious Monk

Monk's Music
Riverside, 1957. Very Good
A landmark in jazz – easily one of Thelonious Monk's greatest albums ever, and a magical crossroads of talents that brings together a variety of jazz traditions! The work is performed by an ambitious Monk septet that includes both Coleman Hawkins and John Coltrane on tenor – and if you' ... LP, Vinyl record album

Blue Mitchell

Graffiti Blues
Mainstream, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of Blue Mitchell's hippest funky sets of the 70s – an unusual little record that mixes a bit of funky harmonica with his own soulful trumpet! The approach definitely echoes a bit of the "blues" in the title – but the groove is much more straightforward and funky – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Donald Byrd & 125th Street, NYC

Love Byrd
Elektra, 1981. Very Good
Funky electric groove from Donald Byrd – a post Mizell effort that's still burning in a crisp groove similar to his classic 70s Blue Note work – one that's absolutely dripping with keys! Isaac Hayes produced this one, and also played a lot of those keyboards on the session with Byrd's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Buddy Rich

Big Swing Face
Pacific Jazz, Late 60s. Very Good Gatefold
Although Buddy's always been a bit laughable, he was always trying to keep his bag moving, and his band of the late 60s included some pretty darn nice players. The group on this session includes Ernie Watts and Bobby Shew, and the band wails hard and fast in a live setting with lots of tight ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1963. Very Good
One of the grooviest 60s live albums from Herbie Mann – done in a style that's a bit different from the rest! Herbie cut many successful live albums for Atlantic, most of them with a hard wailing soul jazz groove – but this one's a nice batch of mellower bossa tunes, played at the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Linda Lewis

Heart Strings
Reprise, 1974. Near Mint-
Great stuff from Linda Lewis – one of the sweetest soul talents of the 70s! Linda's got a great jazzy vocal style that's somewhere between Minnie Riperton and other more folksy singers, like Ellen McIlwaine, and she's really got a knack for writing great little tracks that have a good groove ...
