George Kawaguchi Plays Herbie Hancock

LP (Item 859168) Paddle Wheel/King (Japan), 1987 — Condition: Near Mint-

A really great take on the classic Herbie Hancock sound of the Blue Note years – led by Japanese drummer George Kawaguchi, but featuring some great work by Americans Donald Harrison on alto and tenor sax, Terence Blanchard on trumpet, and Cyrus Chestnut on piano. The tracks are short and upbeat – almost a distillation of Herbie's best themes into a swinging 80s sort of soul jazz groove. Titles include "Maiden Voyage", "Speak Like A Child", "The Eye Of The Hurricane", "Dolphin Dance", and "Cataloupe Island" – plus a great Harrison original called "Funky HH"!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Includes obi!)

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.

We know Bostic's organ numbers are the stuff of mainstream dancefloors – but we never tire of digging up these old King LPs, just to hear his raspy-edged alto and fat tone on the organ! 14 numbers in all, from LPs and 45s, including "That's The Groovy Thing (parts 1 & 2)", ...

Bill Doggett

Nearness Of You
King, Late 60s. Sealed
Pretty mellow stuff from this great soul jazz organist – issued here in an album from the late 60s, but most likely recorded much earlier. Bill sticks with his guitar/tenor/organ lineup here – and plays a mellow set of standards that have a perfect late night feel. Tracks include ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sadao Watanabe

Sadao Watanabe (1961)
King (Japan), 1961. Near Mint-
One of the sharpest altos of the east – heard here in a great early album! Sadao Watanabe sounds wonderful on the set – blowing in a quintet setting, with a groove that's a bit like Lou Donaldson on Blue Note at the same time – slightly modern at moments, but also laidback and ...

King (Japan), 1957. Very Good
That's Torys, as in Suntory's – the big Japanese distillery who's hosting this special performance of The Big Four – a crackling lineup that features soulful tenor from Hidehiko Matsumoto and drums from George Kawaguchi! The core group have an energy that's like the best American bop ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bobby Hutcherson

Natural Illusions
Blue Note, 1972. Near Mint-
Vibes and orchestrations – a combination that makes for one of the coolest Bobby Hutcherson albums of the 70s – a really magical set that expands the sound of Bobby's work in ways we wouldn't have expected! The style is similar to that used with Grant Green and Lou Donaldson at the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of Rahsaan Roland Kirk's last truly fantastic albums – a set that still has all the amazingly messed-up qualities of his best late 60s work – delivered with the honest heart and sense of soul that always make us love his music! The set was recorded for Atlantic in the early 70s, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Revolutionary Ensemble

People's Republic
A&M, 1976. Near Mint- Gatefold
Set of free "out" tracks by this classic 70's loft avant group. Leroy Jenkins, Sirone, and Jerome Cooper mesh together brilliantly, and have honed their style sharply by the time of this A&M release. Gatefold cover, with the tracks "Trio for Trio", "Chinese Rock" ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tomato, 1978/1989. Near Mint-
Fairly loft-oriented jazz session from Sam Rivers – but with a more focused approach than you might initially imagine.

Robin Kenyatta

Nomusa
Muse, 1975. Near Mint-
An early Muse session by Robin Kenyatta – and a record that's probably one of his best of the 70s. Kenyatta plays with a very nice group that includes Dom Salvador on piano and organ, Stafford James on bass, and Joe Chambers on drums – and the tracks are nice and long, with a good ...
