(80s issue. Cover has light wear.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Lionel Hampton plays vibes and synth with vocals from Sylvia Bennett. Tracks include "Lady Is A Tramp", "Avalon", and "It Don't Mean A Thing". LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1964. Very Good+ Gatefold
A real treasure, and a record that may well be our favorite Jimmy Smith album for Verve – a masterful meeting of his smoking Hammond work with some swingingly sophisticated arrangements by Oliver Nelson and Claus Ogerman! Both Nelson and Ogerman bring a fuller spectrum of horn work to the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, Mid 50s. Very Good
Wonderful stuff! Ben Webster blows soulful late night ballads over strings – a perfect combination! Backings are by Ralph Burns and Billy Strayhorn – both of whom can be trusted to keep things hip, using the strings to create mood, emotion, and tension, instead of a pillow to smother ...

Nice Verve package that collects material from Woodys's famous Third Herd and Four Brothers groups! There's some surprisingly modern moments here, and the sound is wonderful. LP, Vinyl record album

Dizzy Gillespie

Dizzy In Greece
Verve, 1956. Very Good+
Dizzy's in Greece, looking very cool in a fez on the cover – and really wailing hard with a larger group that includes Billy Mitchell, Charlie Persip, Lee Morgan, Wynton Kelly, and Phil Woods! The mode here is still quite boppish, despite the larger size of the ensemble – but Dizzy ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1957. Near Mint-
One of the best albums ever in Verve's classic set of recordings from the 1957 Newport Jazz Festival – a set that captures the Dizzy Gillespie group of the decade in top live formation! The ensemble here is plenty hip – with a young Lee Morgan joining Dizzy on trumpet, and a host of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve (UK), Early 60s. Near Mint-
The band here is filled with some great west coast players – with Bill Perkins, Richie Kamuca, Mel Lewis, Frank Rosolino, and Joe Maini – all coming together with a bit more of a kick than usual. Terry's vibes are right out front in the mix, almost doing a mainstream Lionel Hampton ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1953. Near Mint-
The title's a bit misleading, but the record's a great one! Oddly, the album's not a follow up to the West Coast Jazz album by Stan Getz – firstly, because it wasn't actually done on the west coast, and secondly, because this one was actually recorded two years before! But that doesn't stop ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1959. Sealed
A beautiful lost session from Lee Konitz – one that has him blowing beautifully over larger backings penned by Jimmy Giuffre – all done with that great blend of modern and swing that Jimmy was bringing to his best work of the 50s! Bill Evans and Jim Hall provide support in the rhythm ... LP, Vinyl record album
