In Their Own Sweet Way (aka Eddie Costa Quintet)

LP (Item 79185) Premier, Late 50s — Condition: Very Good+

An extremely great session from Eddie Costa and Art Farmer – arguably more so, because the cover and label make you think it's going to be a cheap knockoff! In what is an odd meeting of players, especially for the label, Eddie's piano and vibes meet up with Art's trumpet, the alto of Phil Woods, bass of Teddy Kotick, and drums of Paul Motian – all of whom work together with the fluidity and soulfulness of some of the best Prestige sessions of the time. The horn work is tremendous – and it's hard to remember Woods sounding this great on other albums of the time, really cutting an edge next to Farmer's trumpet – which also has an incredible tone for the album, right up there with his Farmer's Market record. Titles include "Big Ben", "Blues Plus Eight", "Stretch In F", and "Get Out Of The Road".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Great work by one of the grooviest groups on the LA 60s scene!

Skies Of America
Columbia, 1972. Very Good+
A brilliant large ensemble work from Ornette Coleman – ambitious material recorded with full orchestra, in a haunting sound that's light years from any of his smaller group recordings of the 60s and 70s!

Les Liaisons Dangereuses (Epic)

Anthony Braxton

Five Pieces 1975
Arista, 1975. Very Good Gatefold
One of Braxton's best records for Arista, and a great quartet session that features Kenny Wheeler on trumpet, Dave Holland on bass, and Barry Altschul on drums. The playing is extremely tight, and Braxton and Wheeler trade very sharp solos, while Holland pulls these amazing lines out of his bass. ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lionel Hampton

Please Sunrise
Brunswick, 1972. Sealed
Sweet vibes from the great Lionel Hampton – sounding different here than both his early swing years, and his later small combo modes – and working in a style that has his instrument in the lead over hip Chicago soul backings from the team at Brunswick Records! The album's got a nicely ... LP, Vinyl record album

Herb Geller Sextette
EmArcy, 1955. Near Mint-
Classic early work by Herb Geller – and a record that features his crispy alto against a group that features wife Lorraine Geller on piano, Conte Candoli on trumpet, and Zoot Sims on tenor (playing here under the name Ziggy Vines!) The tracks are short, with a lot of west coast whimsy – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Brenda & The Tabulations

Dry Your Eyes
Dionn, 1967. Sealed
Incredible early work from Brenda & The Tabulations – one of the best male/female soul groups of their era, yet one that's often sadly overlooked! This album will more than display why the group are so great – as they have a unique quality that's soft and sweet, yet also deeply ... LP, Vinyl record album

Parliament

Trombipulation
Casablanca, 1980. Sealed Gatefold
Often overlooked, but a very tasty album of late grooves from Parliament – not as much of a major hit as their previous records, but maybe even better because of that!
