Jimmy Smith and Stanley Turrentine go head to head in a great little set for Blue Note – spare quartet grooving, with lots of room for soulful solos! Turrentine's simply great at this point – playing with a raspy edge on the bottom of his tone, sounding dark and mysterious – not nearly as sweet as in later years. Smith is wonderful too – still with traces of the rough experimental approach to the Hammond that he used in his first few Blue Note sides, but with a bit more of a defined and swinging sound. Titles include "Stone Cold Dead in the Market", "Red Top", and "Picknickin'". (New york mono pressing with Van Gelder stamp and ear. Cover is in nice shape.)  © 1996-2015, 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.

Metro, Late 60s. Very Good
A real cooker from Jimmy – and one not to pass up! The record's done during Jimmy's years at Verve, but it's got a rough raw feel that reminds us of his first few years at Blue Note – and features Jimmy playing live in trio formation, really cooking things up on 4 long tracks, with ...

Blue Note, 1956. Near Mint-
A real stormer from Jimmy Smith – done in his first year at Blue Note, but with a sense of power and imagination that cannot be denied!

Crazy! Baby
Blue Note, 1960. Very Good
One of Jimmy's most classic albums for Blue Note – and a key example of why his solo skills on the organ surpassed most of his contemporaries!

Bucket
Blue Note, 1963. Good+
One of the last Jimmy Smith albums for Blue Note, and a tasty trio session that features Quentin Warren on guitar and Donald Baily on drums. The tracks are short, but very groovy – with a tighter sound than on some of Smith's other Blue Note trio albums, and the same kind of in-the-pocket ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sermon!
Blue Note, Early 60s. Good
One of the Jimmy Smith "jam session" Blue Notes, with a large group that includes Lee Morgan, Lou Donaldson, George Coleman, Tina Brooks, and Art Blakey – nearly all of whom take long solos and dig deep to compete with each other. 3 long tracks, "The Sermon", "JOS&quo ... LP, Vinyl record album

Double Take
Blue Note, 1985. Near Mint-
Tremendous trumpets from Freddie Hubbard and Woody Shaw – a real standout from the mid 80s revival years of Blue Note – and a perfect setting for both players! The tracks are long, but tight too – with just the right balance of solo voices from Hubbard and Shaw – and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Magic Touch
Blue Note, 1985. Near Mint-
A crucial album for the jazz guitar in the 80s – the debut effort of Stanley Jordan, and a set that exploded with a very fresh sound! Jordan has a really unique way of handling his instrument – playing up and down the fret board with both hands – in ways that are often so ... LP, Vinyl record album
