This image is a general representation of the item and the actual product may differ slightly in terms of color shading, logo placement, borders, or other small details. Used items may have various cosmetic differences as well.
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.
Rare concert work by Cannonball Adderley – recorded live in Europe in the early 60s, only ever issued there until a much later release in the US, but every bit as essential as any of the Adderley live combo albums from the early 60s – including their classics at the Lighthouse and in ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of Cannonball Adderley's first albums – recorded for Savoy way back in 1955, and done with a free and open style that's a nice contrast to his tighter sides for Mercury! The album's very relaxed – that hardbop blowing session mode that Savoy virtually pioneered – letting the ... LP, Vinyl record album
The title's a bit of a mouthful, but a good description of the way Cannonball was presented in the years before his soul jazz groove firmly kicked in! The "hi fi" is a bit overstated – as the album's pretty much of a straight jazz record, featuring Cannon blowing lead solos in a ... LP, Vinyl record album
A nice double LP expanding on Cannonball's swingin' Japanese concert set issued as Nippon Soul, adding dates from the same concert tour. Featuring one of Cannonball's best groups from the 60's, with Joe Zawinul on piano, brother Nat on cornet, Sam Jones on bass, and Louis Hayes on drums, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Rock-solid live material from the classic Cannonball Adderley Sextet – a combo who could usually groove even better on a concert date then they could in the studio! The album's one of a number of key live sides from Cannon in the 60s – and although it pre-dates his work on Capitol, it's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Once again, Cannonball Adderley proves the old jazz adage – it's not the song, but the singer – as he breathes fantastic new life here into a set of tunes from the musical Fiddler on the Roof! Yet in thinking of the music, there's also a special sort of genius – as there's some ... LP, Vinyl record album
Wickedly hip work from Cannonball Adderley – and one of his real standout sessions for Capitol Records in the 60s! The set lives up to its "Africa" promise right from the very first note – and features a set of loud, proud tunes that really bring out the righteous sounds of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cannon's left his usual soul jazz combo for this album – and he's recording on the west coast with an all-star group that includes Wes Montgomery on guitar, Victor Feldman on vibes and piano, Ray Brown on bass, and Louis Hayes on drums. The sound's a bit different than usual – with a ... LP, Vinyl record album
An 80s issue looking back on alternate takes of seminal bop material cut by Bird for Savoy. The recordings here are all of alternate versions of those originally released by Savoy on 10"s and 78s, and feature Parker alongside Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Max Roach, Bud Powell and others. 16 ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great little session – an oft-overlooked gem from Savoy's legendary hard bop years of the 50s – reissued many years later with an added bonus track! Altoist John Jenkins leads the session – which also features Donald Byrd – who gets co-billed as leader on this reissue, ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of the better of the many posthumous albums that Savoy issued after Bird's death. The set combines one side of master takes and alternates of classic Parker material for the label with Miles Davis, Bud Powell, Tommy potter and Max Roach, and another of Bird's recordings with a young Miles ... LP, Vinyl record album
Never-issued material from reedman Frank Wess – done around the same time as his other all-star sessions for Savoy, but even more obscure! The lineup features Frank on flute, tenor, and alto – with Thad Jones on trumpet, Curtis Fuller on trombone, and Hank Jones on piano! LP, Vinyl record album
