LP, Vinyl record album

(€24.57 || £21.96 || ¥3278) (approx.)

(Cover has a cutout notch and a promo sticker.)

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.

Spiral
Blue Note, 1968/1979. Very Good+
Moody material from Bobby Hutcherson – and one of the first records to feature his vibes in the company of tenorist Harold Land – a player who would help Hutcherson make some mighty fine music over the years! The set's got a super-hip group – with Stanley Cowell on piano, giving ... LP, Vinyl record album
Mellow Madness
A&M, 1973. Very Good
A really great, oft-overlooked album from the best period of Quincy Jones! This album is quite possibly Quincy's most farthest-reaching – as he works in an array of styles that really shows his growing genius in the studio – not just jazz and soundtrack modes, but more soul-based ones, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Night At Count Basie's
Roulette, Early 60s. Very Good-
Rare album of organ jazz by the lost Perri Lee trio. Lee was another one of the great female organists around in the early 60's – like Shirley Scott or Rhoda Scott – and she just wails in this live set recorded at Count Basie's nightclub in Harlem. A big added bonus on this album is ... LP, Vinyl record album
Manhattan Project
Beehive, 1978. Very Good+
Excellent later work from trumpeter Dizzy Reece – best known for his classic late 50s sides on Blue Note and New Jazz, but heard here as part of a great flurry of 70s revival sessions! The work's got an arch modern tone that's really surprising – almost a bit like Ted Curson at times, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Preach Brother
Blue Note, 1962. Very Good
An excellent album by this lusty tenor player – and one of the rarest Blue Notes ever! Brother Don plays lean and mean, in a nice tight group that features Grant Green on guitar, Sonny Clark on piano, and Billy Higgins on drums – all of whom give Wilkerson a freer setting than he ever ... LP, Vinyl record album
Deuces Wild
Atlantic, 1967. Near Mint-
A great little Sonny Stitt album – very different than any of his other sets from the 60s! The album has a number of interesting aspects – from hard-wailing organ by Wilmer Mosby (who we think is Don Patterson under a fake name), to some screaming guest work by Rufus Harley and Robin ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, 1965. Very Good+
Eric Kloss' great first jazz outing, recorded back when he was a teenage virtuoso attending the Western Pennsylvania School for Blind Children. Recorded with Don Patterson's trio, with Pat Martino on guitar, and very (and surprisingly) groovy all the way through. The tracks are mostly standards, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Pyramid
Fantasy, 1974. Very Good
One of Cannonball Adderley's excellent moody electric albums from the early 70s – with a stripped down vibe that's really nice, made even better by sweeeet production by David Axelrod! The set's got great keyboard work by George Duke and Hal Galper – both working in a spare, subtle ... LP, Vinyl record album
Latin Shadows
Impulse, 1965. Near Mint- Gatefold
A great album from Shirley Scott – with some excellent arrangements by Gary McFarland! We've always felt that Shirley plays best when she's not leading the group – when someone else is handling the arrangements, so that she can groove mightily on her own – and this album is a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Best of Daly-Wilson Big Band
Festival (Australia), 1978. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
2 LP set featuring some of the best work of this funky Australian big band! Tracks culled from most of their 70's albums, including their version of "Shaft" and the hard swingin' "Col's Dilemma". And we should warn you – the inside of the gatefold cover features the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Feels So Good
Kudu, 1975. Very Good
An incredible batch of electric funk from Grover Washington Jr – easily one of his best albums ever! The record really picks up from the sweet CTI sound of the 70s – taking Bob James arrangements with a lot of space and electric keyboards, and letting Groover blow some wonderfully ... LP, Vinyl record album
Home Cookin'
Blue Note, Early 60s. Very Good+
Classic work from Jimmy Smith – a smokin' quartet session from the early 60's, one that sports a rare appearance by Percy France on tenor on most of the tracks! France has a great raw sound that gives the session a nice little edge – and the rest of the group features Kenny Burrell on ... LP, Vinyl record album
