Mr. Percussion

LP (Item 813844) Mercury, 1958 — Condition: Near Mint-
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

✈
❔
(Black label stereo pressing with deep groove. Cover has some surface wear, yellowing from age, small seam splits, and gloss separation at the spine.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

Bobby Christian

Smoooth Man
Stepheny, Late 50s. Very Good
Very cool work from percussionist Bobby Christian – a set that's a bit of jazz, and a bit of bachelor pad – the latter of which you might have guessed from the cover! LP, Vinyl record album
Mercury, Late 50s. Very Good+
Buddy takes his Swinging Shepherds crew to the movies on this one – serving up a set of tunes from 40s and 50s films that all come off perfectly with the group's multi-flute approach! The sound's nicely mellow at times, but still has that tightly arranged west coast modern style that made ... LP, Vinyl record album
Clef/Mercury, 1952. Very Good
An early collaboration between Count Basie and Norman Granz – and a real cooker too! Granz shows some great foresight here – grabbing Basie at a time when his group was just getting its groove back, and really learning how to hit a more modern sound! The set includes some great tenor ... LP, Vinyl record album

Charles Mingus

Pre Bird
Mercury, 1960. Near Mint-
An unusual chapter in the label-hopping career of Charles Mingus – a one-off date recorded for Mercury right after Mingus' legendary sessions for Columbia! The format here may well be Mingus' most ambitious to date – as the album features larger groups than before, exploring a range of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mercury, 1958. Very Good+
Although he's best known for his vocal R&B hit "Heartbreak", Jon Thomas was also a darn good organist, and this mid 50s album for Mercury's a nice batch of sides in the same tradition as contemporaneous work by Bill Doggett and Doc Bagby. The tracks are short and lively, and Jon ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mercury, 1966. Near Mint-
One of the greatest sax talents in 60s England – and one of his greatest albums! Tenorist Dick Morrissey had a talent level that put him right up there with giants Tubby Hayes and Ronnie Scott – and like the former, he really grew as a musician during the 60s, picking up a lot of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mercury, 1952. Good
Heavy swinging material from Krupa – working here in a loud and frenetic trio format, with Teddy Napoleon on piano and Charlie Ventura on tenor. Gene's working all the bass himself on the drums, and the album's got that pyrotechnic feel of the best JATP sets. Titles include "Dark ... LP, Vinyl record album
EmArcy/Mercury, 1958. Very Good+
A key album in the development of the flute in jazz – issued under the Swingin Shepherds name to cash in on the fame of that popular hit of the time! The album's a bit more serious and conceptual than you might guess from the title and cover image – and follows strongly on the approach ... LP, Vinyl record album

Quincy Jones

I Dig Dancers
Mercury, 1960. Sealed
Call it a love of dancers or just plain Quincy Jones groove – this album's filled with tight tracks that are a perfect showcase for the ways in which Quincy had such a huge influence on jazz in the 60s! The tunes are often old standards, but done here in a style that's nicely syncopated ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chuck Mangione

Alive!
Mercury, 1972. Near Mint- Gatefold
Mangione plays flugelhorn and electric piano; with Gerry Niewood on tenor, soprano, and alto flute; Tony Levin on bass; and Steve Gadd on drums. LP, Vinyl record album
Mercury (Japan), Late 40s/1950s/1960s. Very Good+ 4LPs
A killer collection of previously-unissued jazz from Mercury Records – with material by Roland Kirk, Ben Webster, Dinah Washington, Bob James, Dizzy Gillespie, Art Farmer, Cannonball Adderley, and others! LP, Vinyl record album

Don Elliott Octet featuring Candido

Jamaica Jazz
ABC, 1958. Near Mint-
Featuring great work by Candido on a number of the tracks, most of which are great calypso-sounding cuts, which give Candido a lot of room to solo. Tracks include "Push De Button", "Savanna", "Ain't It The Truth" and "Napoleon". LP, Vinyl record album
