Flip Phillips/Buddy Rich Trio

LP (Item 853454) Clef, Mid 50s — Condition: Very Good+
(€31.35 || £27.40 || ¥4170) (approx.)

Flip Phillips had plenty of great moments on Verve – but some of his best seemed to come when he was working with Buddy Rich, who always seem to spur him on to even greater heights! This set may be one of their best moments together – a wonderfully spare date that just features Buddy on drums, Flip on tenor, and Hank Jones on piano! (Original deep groove, trumpeter logo Clef pressing. Vinyl is nice – but cover has light wear, tape on two seams, and a few light pen notes on the back.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Groovin' With Jacquet
Clef, Mid 50s. Very Good-
Groovin is right – as you'll hear on this tasty rare side that Jacquet recorded with a smallish group for Verve! Other players include Matthew Gee, Cecil Payne, Ray Acea, and brother Russell Jacquet on trumpet – and the tracks are short, but with lively moments from Illinois, in the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Clef, 1953. Very Good
A repackaged version of material from Count Basie's excellent Dance Session albums for Verve – no-nonsense albums that really get at the high-grooving side of the group, and which feature the kind of compelling and catchy tunes that always made them a favorite on the dancefloor! The Count ... LP, Vinyl record album
Drum Boogie
Clef, Early 50s. Very Good
A great little record that features Krupa in two modes – trio and sextet. The trio sides feature Teddy Napoleon on piano and Charlie Ventura on tenor and baritone on tracks that include "Stardust", "Perdido", "Drum Boogie", and "Fine's Idea" – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Exciting Gene Krupa
Clef/Verve, Early 50s. Very Good+
Despite the fact that he was a showy bombastic drummer in his big band days, during the early 50s, Gene Krupa made some fantastic small group sessions – and this is one of them! The record features two different groups – one with the great Willie Smith on alto, the other with Ben ... LP, Vinyl record album
Charlie Parker Big Band
Clef, Early 50s. Poor
Not really a big band album by Charlie Parker – but a collection of tunes that both feature him blowing with a larger group, and with some great string ensembles! The genius of Bird and strings is hard to describe – an edgey approach that really goes far past most other "jazz with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Titles include "Be Be", "Broadway", "I've Got My Love To Keep Me Warm", and "Dream A Little Dream Of Me". LP, Vinyl record album
Clef, 1952. Good
The second 10" LP in Johnny's classic "collates" series for Verve – a hard-hitting batch of tracks that blows away any work he recorded with Ellington in earlier years! Johnny's at the head of the group – and the set offers an amazing focus on his alto sax lines – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hamp!
Clef, Mid 50s. Very Good
One of Hamp's jazz sides for Verve, all of which were a lot different than the hard live sets he was still laying down around the world in the 50's. This one's a nice laid-back bit of jazz, with long tracks that let all the players – Hamp, Oscar Peterson, Ray Brown, and Buddy Rich – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Boss Is Back!
Prestige, 1969. Very Good+
In "back", the title is pointing to the fact that Gene Ammons is back on the scene, after being released from 7 years of a tragic 15 year narcotics sentence in prison. The album marks a proud return for Jug – who'd not recorded since a very successful flurry of sides recorded in ... LP, Vinyl record album
Return Of The 5000 Lb Man
Warner, 1975. Very Good+
A beautiful late chapter in the jazz journey of Rahsaan Roland Kirk – and an album of subtle genius that's really opened up to us over the years! The setting here isn't as "hit you over the head" as on some of Kirk's Atlantic Records – because at one level, the tunes are ... LP, Vinyl record album
Luminescence!
Prestige, 1969. Very Good+
An extremely striking sextet session from pianist Barry Harris – quite unlike most of his other work from the time! The group on the album features Pepper Adams on baritone, Junior Cook on tenor, and Slide Hampton on trombone – and that brace of three horns gives a really solid feel to ...
