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.

Al Cohn

Broadway 1954
Prestige, 1954. Near Mint-
A rare 1954 date from saxophonist Al Cohn – not issued to the public until this 1970 LP, but easily one of Al's best from the early days! The approach is straight and simple, something Al didn't always get – and the group's a quintet with Hal Stein on alto and Harvey Leonard on piano. ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rod Levitt

Solid Ground
RCA, 1966. Very Good+
Rod Levitt led one of the hippest large groups of the 60's, and although his work was barely recognized at the time, and all but forgotten now, these RCA records of his stand as a constant tribute to his brilliant skills as an arranger and leader. These cuts are short and quirky, with ensemble ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gary Burton

Lofty Fake Anagram
RCA, 1967. Very Good+
A standout classic from Gary Burton – the kind of fresh-voiced and angularly modern session that showed why his sound on the vibes was one of the most revolutionary in jazz at the time! The session features a quartet with Larry Coryell on guitar, Steve Swallow on bass, and Bob Moses on drums ... LP, Vinyl record album
RCA, 1971. Very Good-
Crackling live energy from Buddy Rich – recorded at Ronnie Scott's nightclub in London, and with a sound that recalls some of Buddy's best from the 60s! The group is plenty great – and the attraction here goes way beyond just Buddy's famous work as a leader. As with other Rich albums ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jack Montrose

Horn's Full
RCA, 1958. Very Good+
A great set, and one of the few obscure sides of west coast jazz from Jack Montrose (not to be confused with east coast player JR Montrose). Shorty Rogers supervised the session, and the album features some open-ended tracks done in quintet format that are similar to some of Shorty's best work for ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Dankworth

Movies N Me
RCA, 1974. Near Mint-
Totally groovy work from John Dankworth – a 70s album that features slightly electrified versions of some of his older film and TV themes! The approach is quite different than the originals at times – with horn passages that are even quirkier, and some cool use of electric piano by ... LP, Vinyl record album

Brian Auger's Oblivion Express

Closer To It!
RCA, 1973. Very Good
Soaring organ work from Brian Auger's Oblivion Express – and arguably the greatest album he ever cut with this post-Trinity group! The sound here is clean and lean – with Brian himself on a mix of organ, piano, and moog – really hitting a nice jazz funk mode that drops some of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wild Bill Davis

Midnight To Dawn
RCA, 1967. Very Good+
A nice live cooker from Wild Bill Davis! This album was recorded at Grace's Little Belmont, a club in Atlantic City in 1967, a place where organist Davis had played almost every summer for over twenty years. He is joined by Clayton Robert Brown on tenor sax, James "Dickie" Thompson on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Creamy
Verve, Early 50s. Very Good+
Swing session with small group backing by Billy Strayhorn, Jimmy Woode, Sonny Greer, and Clark Terry – and which features Johnny's warm tones soloing nicely on comfortable standards.
