Guitar Artistry (AKA Guitar Artistry Of Charlie Byrd)

LP (Item 791653) Riverside, 1960 — Condition: Very Good+

(Later 60s reissue of Guitar Artistry Of Charlie Byrd.)

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.

Max Roach

Conversation
Riverside, Early 60s. Near Mint-
This is a retitled 2nd pressing of the album Deeds Not Words – which is a classic Max Roach session with Booker Little, George Coleman, Art Davis, and Ray Draper. The album's got 2 great originals by Bill Lee – "Jodie's Cha Cha" and "Deeds, Not Words" – plus ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sam Jones

Soul Society
Riverside, 1960. Very Good
A fantastic lost soul jazz groover! The record is clearly one of the best ever cut by this fantastically overlooked bass player – and it's filled with a great set of players that includes Bobby Timmons, Nat Adderley, Charles Davis, and Jimmy Heath. The whole thing leaps along with that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Johnny Griffin

White Gardenia
Riverside, 1961. Very Good
A tribute to Billie Holiday – with Johnny Griffin's tenor fronting some larger backing on strings and brass – but hipper than most efforts of this type, thanks to some great arrangements by Melba Liston and Norman Simmons! The record's a good change from some of Johnny's more full-on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bill Evans

Explorations
Riverside, 1961. Near Mint-
The Bill Evans trio with Scott LaFaro on bass and Paul Motian on drums – a near-perfect lineup that forever raise the bar for jazz piano expression! The title here is certainly apt – because even though many of the tunes are shortish, Evans has a sense of exploration in the way he's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy Heath

Swamp Seed
Riverside, 1963. Near Mint-
Early genius from Jimmy Heath – a set that displays both his talents on the tenor sax, and his growing role as a jazz arranger! The style here is still relatively simple – with Heath's saxophone offset by a range of brass players who include Donald Byrd on trumpet, Julius Watkins on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wes Montgomery

So Much Guitar!
Riverside, 1961. Near Mint-
So much guitar – but never too much, given that Wes was the real master of sound and space, even at this early point in his career! The album's one that tries to break Montgomery from some of his smaller combo albums for Riverside, and pair him with a few bigger names – Hank Jones on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Riverside, 1959. Near Mint-
With Herbie Mann on flute and tenor, Zoot Sims on alto and tenor, Pepper Adams on baritone, and even some piano from Bill Evans! LP, Vinyl record album

Cannonball Adderley

Know What I Mean?
Riverside, 1961. Very Good+
Beautiful early work from Cannonball Adderley – and a record that's quite different than most of his better known sets from the time! The album's more spare and stripped-down than usual – with Cannon's alto in a quartet alongside Bill Evans on piano, Percy Heath on bass, and Connie Kay ... LP, Vinyl record album

New Blue Horns
Riverside, Late 50s. Near Mint-
A nice collection, with some previously unissued tracks by Riverside's hippest trumpet players! LP, Vinyl record album

Black Whip
Prestige, 1973. Very Good
Amazing stuff from Ivan Boogaloo Joe Jones! Unlike some of the other players on Prestige during the early 70s – who often got a bit weaker as the decade moved on, thanks to the departure of some of the better forces arranging and producing the records – Jones kept on playing hard, ...

Ornette Coleman

Tomorrow Is the Question!
Contemporary, 1959. Very Good-
Tomorrow may be the question, but the record screams "today!" – and even this many years after its recording, this early set by Ornette Coleman has an energy and presence that cannot be denied! The sound here is kind of a rougher take on the mode that would gel more strongly on ... LP, Vinyl record album
