LP (Item 80161) Vanguard, 1972 — Condition: Very Good
Also available
Larry Coryell — Offering ... CD 10.99

A fantastic record from guitarist Larry Coryell – one that maybe has him shedding some of the more rockish tendencies of his roots, while finding the way forward in a searing, searching style of funky jazz! There's almost a Flying Dutchman sort of righteousness to the record – as Larry mixes the ever-increasing sharpness of his guitar with great soprano sax from Steve Marcus – who himself may well be topping performances on albums under his own name. Bottom energy is driven strongly by Mervin Bronson on bass and Harry Wilkinson on drums – and the group also features lots of great keyboards from Mike Mandel – playing "electric piano with fuzz wah"! Titles include "Foreplay", "Ruminations", "Scotland 1", "Beggars' Chant", and "Offering".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Larry Coryell

At The Village Gate
Vanguard, 1971. Very Good+
One of the most stripped-down records from the early years of Larry Coryell – but one of the most powerful, too – as the record sometimes has Larry singing along with his guitar, in an effortless blend of trippy rock and jazz! The date's a live one – and the trio features Marvin ... LP, Vinyl record album

Larry Coryell

Barefoot Boy
Flying Dutchman, 1972. Very Good Gatefold
One of Larry Coryell's greatest albums ever! Barefoot Boy is a much more expansive session than some of Coryell's others, fueled in part by the spiritual intensity of the Impulse Records generation. It's got a momentum that's pretty darn exciting throughout – but the compositions are nice ... LP, Vinyl record album

Larry Coryell

Real Great Escape
Vanguard, 1973. Very Good
Larry Coryell tries out his vocal chops a bit on this album with his classic group from the early 70s – but the main "voice" on the record is still his wonderfully tight guitar – which has a beautifully sharp sound throughout! When Coryell sings, he almost seems to be doing ... LP, Vinyl record album
Vanguard, 1974. Very Good+
Heavy-duty funky fusion – an all-star group that featured Alphonse Mouzon on drums, Randy Brecker on trumpet, Mike Mandel on keyboards, and Larry Coryell on guitar. The tracks all have that heavy electric full-on fusion sound that you'd find in a rock-inspired hard-jamming group like this ... LP, Vinyl record album

James Moody

Sun Journey
Vanguard, 1976. Near Mint-
Not as funky as Moody's work for Perception, but definitely in a similar mode. The record's got James playing alto, tenor, and soprano – in a group that includes Kenny Barron on electric piano, Roland Prince on guitar, and some guest trumpet by Randy Brecker. The tracks shift from warm and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Vanguard, 1938/1939. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold

Joe Beck

Beck
Kudu, 1975. Near Mint-
A great little Kudu set from guitarist Joe Beck – a player who's sounding a lot tighter here than some of his odd psychedelic experiments of the 60s – but still pretty darn great overall! The style is smooth, as you'd expect from Kudu, but Joe's still got plenty of edges in his guitar ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gary Burton

Good Vibes
Atlantic, 1970. Near Mint-
Gary Burton hits a sweet electric funky sound here – a great groove that really makes the album stand out from most of his other work! The support Burton gets is a big reason for the greatness of the date – as he's working in a group that includes Eric Gale on guitar, Richard Tee on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Impulse, 1963/1964. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A pretty nice 2LP set that collects together McCoy's early trio sides for Impulse – pulled from albums that were issued under his own name, and mostly featuring Coltrane-based lineups that either include Jimmy Garrison or Art Davis on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. The set features 2 tunes ... LP, Vinyl record album
