Out Of Stock


A wonderful musical discovery – a 2CD set that brings together the complete recordings from the Jazz At The Philharmonic performance in Hamburg, Germany in 1956! The first half of the set features the JATP All-Stars really wailing away – playing on long tracks that are filled with lively solo energy that recall the genius of the first few sessions of this type in the US. Players include Dizzy Gillespie and Roy Eldridge on trumpets, Flip Phillips and Illinois Jacquet on tenor, Oscar Peterson on piano, Herb Ellis on guitar, Ray Brown on bass, and Gene Krupa on drums. 11 tracks include "My Man", "The Modern Set", "Jam At JATP #2", "My Man #2", "The Modern Set #2", "Drum Boogie", and an extended "Ballad Medley". The Oscar Peterson trio takes the stage next – with Peterson on piano, Herb Ellis on guitar, and Ray Brown on bass – on 6 titles that include "Elevation", "Indiana", "Easy Does It", "How High The Moon", and "Seven Come Eleven". On the last set of tracks, Ella Fitzgerald is featured on vocals, with backing by the full JATP All-Stars – on 9 tracks that include "Lady Be Good", "This Can't Be Love", "I Love Paris", "Lover Come Back To Me", "Lullaby Of Birdland", and "I Want You To Be My Baby". Great package too – 2 CDs in a slipcase, with a nice booklet as well!  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Used CD Grade

We only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

When you purchase a used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use, but if there are significant details or defects we will describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.

Verve, 1965. Used
Surprisingly wonderful work from Kenny! The album has Kenny's guitar set to arrangements by Gil Evans – who gives the session a modern edge that really sets it apart from other Burrell albums of the time. Kenny's freed to do his thing – wonderfully, we might add – and Gil paints ... CD

All the Charlie Parker solos from the JATP performances in 1949 – long tracks that also feature excellent work from Lester Young on tenor, Roy Eldridge on trumpet, and Ella Fitzgerald on vocals! CD
Verve, 1962. Used
One of Oscar Peterson's biggest records ever – one of those albums we turn up time and time again when digging through classic jazz collections – and for good reason too, given the lasting power of the set! The album's got a rock-solid sound that's filled with soul – almost a bit ... CD

Tony Scott

Tony Scott
Verve, 1967. Used
A killer record – one with some great modal tracks! Unlike Tony Scott's other LPs on Verve, which feature some extended meditative tracks with more Eastern instrumentation than jazz, this one's got a great blend of Scott's two sides, and some shorter tracks that are really nice groovers, ... CD

Pulled from his Decca, Barclay, and Blue Star sessions – other players include Stephane Grappelli, Pierre Michelot, and Joseph Reinhardt. 16 tracks total. CD
Verve, 1957. Used
A great little session – and a meeting that was one of the best things to happen to the Oscar Peterson trio during the 50s! Stan's tone fits perfectly with the group here – and his playing next to the guitar of Herb Ellis recalls many of the fine strengths of the early 50s Getz sides ... CD
Blue Note, 1962. Used
A really unusual live set from the great Art Blakey – his only album for the United Artists label, but one that continues the tradition of the expanded group style he was starting to use at Blue Note! The lineup here is a sextet, one that's got even more power than the Jazz Messengers as a ... CD

Gerry Mulligan

What Is There To Say?
Columbia, 1959. Used
A beautiful pairing of the baritone of Gerry Mulligan and the trumpet of Art Farmer – brought together wonderfully in this piano-less session that has both players effortlessly carving lines in the open space of the studio. Rhythm is by the team of Bill Crow on bass and Dave Bailey on drums ... CD

Chet Baker & Art Pepper

Pacific Jazz, 1956. Used
An excellent session that stands as one of both players' strongest from the time! Baker's really opening up here, moving more into that hardbop mode of the late 50s – and Pepper's already hit his stride here – with the pair of them working in a group that includes Phil Urso on tenor, ... CD
