Hold On, I'm Coming

LP (Item 78347) Limelight, 1967 — Condition: Very Good-

A soulful little record from Art Blakey – and very different than his Blue Note sessions! The album's got a tight soul jazz groove – shorter numbers, fuller backings, and an overall sound that's almost more like Cadet Records at the time. Backings are handled by Melba Liston or Tom McIntosh, and tracks are shorter than usual – but still filled with firey work by from the players – who include Freddie Hubbard and Chuck Mangione on trumpet, Tom McIntosh and Garnett Brown on trombone, Gary Bartz on alto, Frank Mitchell on tenor, Grant Green on guitar, John Hicks on piano, and Malcolm Bass on organ. A number of tracks have a conga drum groove – very unusual for the average Blakey album – and the tracks are a mix of soul jazz originals and pop covers, like "Secret Agent Man", "Sakeena", "Slowly But Surely", "Monday, Monday", and "Hold On, I'm Coming". (White label stereo promo with deep groove. Cover has some edge wear and a promo stamp on back.)  © 1996-2018, 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.

An unusual UK pressing of the album also known as Hard Drive – a well-titled set from Art Blakey – considering the hard-driving sound of the group! The album's one of the best from that unusual year of 1957 – almost a "lost" year for Art, when he was working away from ... LP, Vinyl record album

Fontana (Japan), Early 60s. Very Good
One of the coolest entries in that overseas series from Fontana from the 60s – one that features a jazz artist with a groovy girl – an a unique presentation of vintage American material! This set features Art Blakey work for Riverside – and titles include "On The Ginza" ... LP, Vinyl record album

Limelight/Trip, 1966. Near Mint-
An unusual little record from Art Blakey – a live set recorded at the Lighthouse in 1966, with a band that includes the surprising lineup of Keith Jarrett on piano and Chuck Mangione on trumpet!

Drum Suite
Columbia, 1956/1957. Near Mint- (reissue)

S Make It
Limelight, 1965. Very Good+
A lost classic from Art Blakey – quite different from some of his Blue Note work! The album's a very swinging mid 60s session, noteworthy for the presence of John Gilmore, recording here in one of his few appearances away from Sun Ra. Gilmore wails on tenor, and he sounds great next to Lee ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 1954. Very Good+
A wonderfully hard-storming set – and a record that not only firmly put the Jazz Messengers on the map, but also set a whole new standard for live jazz recording! The group here is the early version of the Messengers – almost co-led by drummer Art Blakey with pianist Horace Silver ... LP, Vinyl record album

3/27/65 – Charlie Parker 10th Memorial Concert
Limelight, 1965. Very Good Gatefold
Way more than the simple Charlie Parker tribute promised in the title! For starters, the set's got two of the best cuts by Gillespie's mid 60s group with James Moody – "Um-Hmmm" and "Groovin High" – both of which have Moody playing in an incredibly unbridled tone ... LP, Vinyl record album
Limelight, 1965. Very Good+ Gatefold
One of the better trio sides that Les cut during the 60s – in that it's got a pretty freewheeling approach to the music, and more than a bit of a sense of humor. You'd probably guess that from the track titles, though – especially "She Broke My Heart (And I Broke Her Jaw)", ... LP, Vinyl record album
Today's Sounds
Limelight, 1966. Near Mint- Gatefold
A great little set from Gene Harris and his soul jazz trio – recorded live at Chicago's London House, in a setting that always has the band working at their best. Somehow, Harris' solos are always a lot freer and more driven in this sort of an environment – stronger than his work on ... LP, Vinyl record album
With Respect To Nat
Limelight, 1965. Very Good+
Oscar Peterson pays tribute to the late Nat King Cole – not only on piano, but also with a bit of vocals as well! Given how rarely Oscar sings on record, the album's a real treat – especially as his vocals capture the spirit of Cole surprisingly well – not exactly like Nat, but ... LP, Vinyl record album
