Harry Warren Showcase

LP (Item 81241) Judson, 1957 — Condition: Very Good

One of a number of mid 50s albums that Kenny recorded to showcase the work of assorted 20th century composers – and like all of them, a spare and thoughtful set, recorded with only bass by Wilbur Ware as accompaniment! Kenny's piano dominates, making the album feel more like a solo set than anything else – and the set features 12 nicely-done versions of Harry Warren tunes – including "Remember Me", "Lullaby Of Broadway", "You're My Everything", "You'll Never Know", and "September In The Rain".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Maroon label pressing with deep groove. Cover has some tape remnants on back, in nice shape otherwise.)

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.

Riverside, 1957. Very Good-
A great early date as a leader from trumpeter Clark Terry – one cut during the stretch when he was keeping company with players like Thelonious Monk and Johnny Griffin!

Ear Wax/Wonderland, Late 70s. Sealed
