Clickin' With Clax

LP (Item 750886) Atlantic (UK), 1978 — Condition: Near Mint-

A gem of a record from Shorty Rogers – a set recorded in the mid 50s for Atlantic, but never issued at the time – making it not only a hell of an album, but a great discovery too! Shorty's in wonderful form here – working with some of the best modes learned on his RCA sides, served up with the tighter focus that we love in his other Atlantic recordings of the 50s – and graced with a great group of players who include Herb Geller on alto, Jimmy Giuffre on clarinet and tenor, Bud Shank on alto and baritone, Bill Holman on tenor, Lou Levy on piano, Ralph Pena on bass, and Shelly Manne on drums. With a lineup like that, you can bet things are on the money throughout – especially since all tunes are originals by Shorty, with great arrangements that really let all the solo voices come through strongly! Titles include "I Dig Ed", "Adam In New York", "Clickin With Clax", "Put The Goodies On", and "Pete's Meat".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Japanese pressing, with obi!)

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.

Charles Mingus

Blues & Roots
Atlantic, 1960. Near Mint-
One of Mingus' classic sessions from the middle period – a legendary blending of jazz with bluesy gospel touches, in a mode that seemed to move away from the politics of some of the late 50s years, and open up his work to a whole new audience! The band is an all-star ensemble all the way ... LP, Vinyl record album

Billy Cobham

Total Eclipse
Atlantic, 1974. Very Good
Full throttle fusion from Billy Cobham, the kind of stuff we once winced at because of the really over the top moments of heavy, heavy jamming, but that we find ourselves more sympathetic to these days, probably for the more sublime moments that poke through the onslaught here and there, including ...

Eddie Harris

Is It In
Atlantic, 1974. Very Good
One of Eddie's groovier Varitone albums, and a record that has a very electric sound to it! At times, Eddie's electric sax is so off-beat that you'd think he was playing a synthesizer instead of a sax, but in true Harris form, he always keeps it funky, and even the weird sounds have a great groove ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1962. Very Good
Herbie Mann's at the Village Gate – really wailing away in a set of extended numbers that not only set a whole new standard for live recording in jazz, but which also pushed forward the role of the flute in the music as well! There's a heck of a lot of soul in the grooves here – served ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1966. Very Good
A sweet early 60s set by Herbie Mann! After cutting a very successful side at the Gate in 1962, Herbie returns with an even broader approach to the groove – working here with players that include Ahmed Abdul-Malik, Dave Pike, Ray Mantilla, and Ray Barretto, on a set of long tracks that have ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1958. Very Good
David Newman's first album as a leader – recorded under the Ray Charles banner, and featuring Ray himself on piano! The set's a really surprising one – as it's much more jazz-based than we'd expect, given the Charles connection – and really steps out with some lively solo work ... LP, Vinyl record album

Leo Wright

Blues Shout
Atlantic, 1960. Very Good+
A beautiful record, and one of the few albums ever cut as a leader by alto player Leo Wright! At the time of the set, Wright was really making some excellent records with Lalo Schifrin and in Dizzy Gillespie's group (where they both were working at the time) – and this set is a perfect ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1957. Near Mint-
An amazing record – quite possibly one of the greatest jazz albums of all time, and a session that has Charles Mingus stepping boldly forward in a whole new direction! The album shakes loose the sometimes too-academic modern tones of Mingus albums from the previous year or two – and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Harris

In Sound
Atlantic, 1965. Very Good+
We can never get enough of Eddie Harris – and a record like this is a great reason why! Despite all the many different settings Eddie worked in at Atlantic, he still always stayed true to his roots – and a record like this is a perfect example of that – no electric horn, no funk, ...

Nolan-Buddle Quartet

Odd Couple
M7 (Australia), 1976. Very Good
Quartet album featuring Australian jazz legends Col Nolan and Errol Buddle, plus the drumming of Warren Daly, from the Daly-Wilson Big Band. The group was one of the most popular of the Aussie jazz funk combos of the 70's, and the record has lots of nice mellow groovy moments. The best cuts are ... LP, Vinyl record album
Pacific Jazz, 1954. Very Good
Original 10" LP featuring the great alto player amidst a lineup that includes 3 west coast trombonists, and a west coast rhythm section with Claude Williamson, Joe Mondragon, and Shelly Manne. Bob Cooper did the arrangements, and the sound's got that nice measured feel that he gets, but with ... LP, Vinyl record album
