Michael White — White Night ... CD 3.99

An album that's quite different than Michael White's early solo work, but also quite nice too – although in a completely different way! On this set, White's working with jazz funk legend Wayne Henderson – crafting a smooth approach to the groove that's very much in keeping with the rest of Henderson's At Home productions of the time. Most tracks have vocals, either lead by Alexandra Brown, or chorus/backing style by singers that include Angela Winbush, Augie Johnson, Jim Gilstrap, and Miki Howard. White's still playing violin, but the real appeal is the overall Henderson groove – helped out a bit here by some work by Don Mizell. Titles include "I Was Made To Love Him", "I Like It", "Rikki Don't Lose That Number", "Never Be The Same", "Of All Reasons", and "So Good To Me". (Cover has light wear. Spine is lined with tape.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Spirit Dance
Impulse, 1972. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of the killer albums that Michael White cut for Impulse Records in the early 70 – a sweet set of spiritual jazz that took his instrument to a whole new level! Normally, the violin isn't an instrument we love in jazz, but White really transforms it here – playing it with a stretched- ... LP, Vinyl record album
New York Improvisations
Elektra, 1955/1956. Very Good
80s release of some rare sessions cut at Tristano's private Manhattan studio in the mid 50s, featuring spare trio tracks with Peter Ind on bass and Tom Weyburn on drums. The album is an essential chapter in Tristano's under-recorded career, and the tracks are a delight all the way through. Titles ... LP, Vinyl record album
Elektra, 1978. Near Mint-
A post-Blue Note effort, and Donald's changing things up a bit with his 125th Street Orchestra and Uptown Singers – funking along in a way you'd expect from the longwinded title! Byrd loostens up the smoother backgrounds of his recent Larry Mizell helmed work, and in their place are grooves ... LP, Vinyl record album
We Are One
Elektra, 1982. Very Good+
The group's second album – a nicely laidback album of soul and jazz tracks, produced by Grover Washington Jr with that clean and perfect sound he was getting on his own albums at the time. Includes the group's classic slammer "Mt Airy Groove" – a great old school hip hop ... LP, Vinyl record album
Warwick, 1960. Near Mint-
We're not sure what "soul-stream" is as a genre – but given the strength of this record, we'd be more than willing to grant it onto Curtis Fuller all by himself! The record's a gem that's even more obscure than Fuller's already-rare dates for Blue Note at the end of the 50s – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Calling It The 8th
Hat Hut (Switzerland), 1983. Near Mint-
Nice set of two extended quartet pieces, featuring a group led by Taylor, and with Jimmy Lyons, William Parker, and Rashid Bakr. The LP includes a 30 minute version of "Calling It The 8th", plus a 10 minute take of "Calling It The 9th". Both tracks were recorded live in 1981, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Hamp!
Clef, Mid 50s. Good
One of Hamp's jazz sides for Verve, all of which were a lot different than the hard live sets he was still laying down around the world in the 50's. This one's a nice laid-back bit of jazz, with long tracks that let all the players – Hamp, Oscar Peterson, Ray Brown, and Buddy Rich – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Captain's Journey
Elektra, 1979. Near Mint-
A masterful fusion set from guitarist Lee Ritenour – one that expands his sound a bit more than usual by adding in vocals on a number of tracks – but in a way that really gets at the mainstream soul influences that bubble through his jazz work! The set features key vocal appearances ... LP, Vinyl record album
Music Makers – Strings
Chevron/Standard Oil, 1975. Very Good+ 2LP
Quite an unusual little record – one that features examples of string instrumentation, produced for schools by the Standard Oil company! Includes Ray Brown playing and interviewed by Mel Graves – and Graves playing electric bass in a hip group with Mike Nock on electric piano and Arp! ... LP, Vinyl record album
Song For Wounded Knee
Flying Dutchman, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of the few albums ever cut as a leader by bassist Richard Davis – and a very unusual session that features Joe Beck on guitar and Jack DeJohnette on drums. The groove is very free – as all players lanquidly explore the space of the session, not really going that "out", ... LP, Vinyl record album
Streamline
Elektra, 1978. Very Good+
As the title says, Lenny White's streamlined his sound here – but to us that's a good thing, as it eliminates some of the overly-heavy jam sound that could ruin earlier records – making for a lean, clean groove that's mighty nice, and plenty darn soulful! Plus, Lenny's working here ... LP, Vinyl record album
