Atlantic Jazz – Soul

LP (Item 816213) Atlantic, 1960s — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP Gatefold

...

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.

Atlantic, 1962. Sealed
Herbie Mann's at the Village Gate – really wailing away in a set of extended numbers that not only set a whole new standard for live recording in jazz, but which also pushed forward the role of the flute in the music as well! There's a heck of a lot of soul in the grooves here – served ... LP, Vinyl record album

Charles Lloyd

Love-In
Atlantic, 1967. Very Good
A classic batch of modal grooves from Charles Lloyd – recorded during the height of his mind-expanding years, with his famous quartet that included Keith Jarrett on piano and Jack DeJohnette on drums!

Best Of Rahsaan Roland Kirk
Atlantic, Late 60s/1971. Near Mint-
A great collection of work that Roland Kirk recorded for Atlantic – some of his best-ever, as far as we're concerned! And while we'd recommend that you get every Roland Kirk album on Atlantic you can find, we also know that they're pretty darn hard to find on vinyl – and this ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ray Bryant

MCMLXX
Atlantic, 1970. Very Good+
Sweet funky piano from the mighty Ray Bryant – one of his excellent albums for Atlantic Records, a label who really seemed to give him an extra push in the groove department! The record's got a nicely laidback sort of feel – core grooving from a trio that features Bryant on acoustic ... LP, Vinyl record album

Charles Mingus

Changes Two
Atlantic, 1975. Very Good
A great little 70s session from Mingus – the second part of the Changes set, some of his best work from the time, and recorded with a small group that includes George Adams, Don Pullen, and Jack Walrath. Tracks are long, with that late love of Ellington that Mingus was developing – and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Charles Mingus

Something Like A Bird
Atlantic, 1978. Near Mint-
One of the last albums Charles Mingus ever gave us – before departing this planet way way too soon! The set shows the increasing sophistication of Mingus' music in these later years – a mode that almost echoes the path that Duke Ellington would take in his final decade – a move ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1976. Near Mint-
Eddie continues the funky groove begun on Instant Funk, and smoothed out over albums like I Need Some Money – and although jazz fans probably gave him hell for going this way, we think this is actually a pretty darn great album! The record takes all of Eddie's experimentation with groovy ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, Late 50s/1985. Near Mint-
80's issue of alternate takes from some of Trane's best Atlantic sessions, including the one that went on to be the Giant Steps album.

Atlantic, 1985. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A stretched out performance from Ahmad Jamal – recorded with stunning acoustic brilliance at the Montreal Jazz Festival in 1985, in a performance that alternates between long solo lines on the piano, and bolder passages with bass, drums, and percussion! There's a strength here that's easily ... LP, Vinyl record album

Avenue Of The Americas
Owl (France), 1979. Near Mint-
Solo piano tracks from this committed modernist. Recorded in New York, and released on the French Owl label. Includes the titles "Autumn Dusk", "Changing", and "Meet". LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy Smith

Unfinished Business
Mercury, 1978. Very Good
Mighty soulful business from the great Jimmy Smith – a set for Mercury Records that updates his sound slightly, yet also hits some classic Hammond lines too! Jimmy plays a bit of acoustic piano and keyboards in addition to his classic organ – and works here in a setting that's tightly ... LP, Vinyl record album

Thad Jones & Mel Lewis

Central Park North
Solid State, 1969. Very Good Gatefold
Excellent work from the team of Thad Jones and Mel Lewis – arguably one of their best albums from the late 60s, and a set that's got some really great funky big band numbers! There's a nice bouncing groove to the group that they normally don't have – possibly because Richard Davis is ... LP, Vinyl record album
