MF Horn

LP (Item 80433) Columbia, Late 60s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

4.80 5

A brilliant album from Maynard Ferguson – one that owes a heck of a lot to Brit easy maestro Keith Mansfield! Mansfield produced the whole thing, and arranged with the help of Kenny Wheeler and Adrian Dover – and the whole record has the tightness of the best expansive Brit easy grooves from the time – setting Ferguson's brassy horn in some impeccable backings that have an amazing blend of jazz, easy, and rhythm – never failing to please our oft-jaded ears! Way more than just funky big band, with a really solid approach all the way through – and solo work by Kenny Wheeler and Pete King, in addition to Ferguson. Titles include the Indian groover "Chala Nata", plus "L-Dopa", "Eli's Comin", "Ballad To Max", and "MacArthur Park". (70s pressing. Cover has light wear and a tracklist sticker.)  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Columbia, Early 60s. Very Good+
An incredibly great album! Although the pretense for this record is similar to other "bird sounds from jazz players" sessions – the record is a darn nice batch of tracks that has a sweet soul jazz groove, and a nice goofy instrumental sound that has a lot more edges than you'd ...

One of Duke's standout sides for Columbia during the late 50s wealth of new recordings – a live set recorded at Miami's Bal Masque nightclub. The arrangements are sophisticated, and Duke's piano is hitting that darkly-tinged later style – but the focus is also on danceable arrangements ... LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia, 1980. Near Mint-
A nice little later album from Miles Davis – one that still has some sharp edges and interesting moments that refine the earlier electric sound of the 70s! Teo Macero's still producing here, and he gives the record a focus that really brings the best sound out of the tunes – and ... LP, Vinyl record album

A unique little album from Thelonious Monk – an early 60s live date that features a really cooking big band, plus some solo and quartet tracks as well! The bulk of the album's played by the big band – an unusual mix of players that includes Phil Woods on alto, Steve Lacy on soprano sax ... LP, Vinyl record album
