Japanese Concerts (Nippon Soul plus unreleased bonus tracks)

LP (Item 78146) Riverside/Milestone, 1963 — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP Gatefold

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 adding Yusef Lateef, who does some excellent reed work on tenor, flute, and oboe – and who's playing at this point with that great mix of soul jazz and out-sounds that he was cooking up at the time. With the half dozen tunes from the original issue, including an excellent 12 minute reading of Lateef's "Brother John", pls "Tengo Tango", "Come Sunday", "The Weaver", "Easy To Love" and "Nippon Soul", plus the additional numbers 'Work Song", "Autumn Leaves", "Dizzy's Business", "Primitivo" and "Jive Samba".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light wear.)

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.

Portrait Of Cannonball
Riverside, 1958. Very Good-
A jazzy portrait of Cannonball Adderley in his early soul jazz prime – oddly one that doesn't feature his regular quintet lineup, but which more than makes up for that lack with a batch of players that includes Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Bill Evans on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Philly Joe ...

Soul Zodiac
Capitol, 1972. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
One of the coolest, baddest, funkiest albums Cannonball Adderley ever recorded – a massive suite of tunes based on the signs of the Zodiac, produced to perfection by David Axelrod, and featuring some hip recitations from the mighty Rick Holmes! The double-length set is completely compelling ... LP, Vinyl record album

Big Man
Fantasy, 1975. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
One of the last albums ever issued by the great Cannonball Adderley – and one of the most ambitious, too!

If you ever needed a key example of the genius of Cannonball on Capitol Records, this tight little set may well be it!

Inside Straight
Fantasy, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of Cannonball Adderley's late funky sessions for Fantasy – and a record that still features some mighty heavy production from David Axelrod!

Art Blakey

Kyoto
Riverside, 1964. Near Mint-
Quite possibly the best of the non-Blue Note Blakey sides from the early 60s – and an excellent outing from the sextet version of the Jazz Messengers that included Freddie Hubbard, Curtis Fuller, Wayne Shorter, Cedar Walton, and Reggie Workman! The format here is a big tighter than some of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Riverside, Early 50s. Very Good
Late 60s issue of some material that was recorded early in the producing career of Orrin Keepnews – and which features Navarro in the company of a hip group of boppers like Allan Eager, Curly Russell, Kenny Clarke, and Tadd Dameron. Dameron wrote a good portion of tracks on the set – ... LP, Vinyl record album
