Better than you might think – and a nice set of flute-oriented hardbop that has Herbie Mann playing next to Belgian flautist Bobby Jaspar! The pair of them trade off lines in a couple of long tracks that have that Prestige "blowin' session" feel to them, with lots of spare rhythm playing in the back that lets the soloists wander amply in the front – and Jaspar takes over on main flute duties on some other tracks too. Other players include Tommy Flanagan, Joe Puma, Eddie Costa, and Doug Watkins – and tracks include "Bo Do", "Solacium", "Flute Bass Blues", and "Flute Bob". (Blue label pressing. Cover has a split spine and bottom seam, and some pen on front.)  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Atlantic, 1978. Very Good
Sweet electric work from Herbie Mann – a surprisingly nice little record, despite a cheesy title and cover! The set's got a way deeper groove than the resort image might make you think – and Herbie's working here with a hip lineup that includes Roy Ayers on vibes, Richard Tee on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Prestige, 1964. Very Good-
Bad Bossa Nova is right – as Gene Ammons really hits a great groove here – one that's not exactly bossa, but which has lots of Latin and tropical touches! The session makes great use of 2 guitars at the same time – using that of Kenny Burrell for soulful rhythm, but also adding ... LP, Vinyl record album

A beautiful comeback LP recorded by LA alto genius Sonny Criss in the mid 60s – his first American session after a few years in France, and a few years off the scene back home!

Pacific Jazz, 1960. Near Mint-
Great LA soul jazz session featuring the deep Texas tenor of Curtis Amy and the funky organ of Paul Bryant! Also present is Roy Brewster, the great, under-recorded LA valve trombonist, whose playing here gives the session a nice round bottom. 5 long cuts, with earthy, bluesy solos, and a very ...

Impulse, 1970. Very Good+ Gatefold
One of the grooviest albums ever from the legendary Milt Jackson – an upbeat, almost funky set of soul jazz tracks – played with some great grooves on the bottom! Those trademark Jackson vibes are firmly in place, but the setting is quite different from the staid sounds of the MJQ ... LP, Vinyl record album
