LP (Item 881879) Kings Of Jazz (Italy), 1963 — Condition: Sealed
Originally: 19.99
Recorded in New York City in February of 1963 – with Charlie Rouse on tenor, John Ore on bass, and Frankie Dunlop on drums.  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(70s issue, still sealed with a hole at the top right from sticker removal.)

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

CBS (Japan), 1963. Very Good+
Rare live material by Monk – recorded in Tokyo in 1963, and featuring the classic Columbia quartet with Charlie Rouse on tenor, Butch Warren on bass, and Frankie Dunlop on drums. Rouse is especially wonderful, and he gets a lot of freedom on the record to work out these complicated solos ... LP, Vinyl record album

Thelonious Monk

Thelonious Himself
Riverside, 1957. Near Mint-
A classic outing of solo piano by Thelonious Monk – a format that wasn't used often, but which always made for some really compelling work! Monk in this mode is often different than the bolder leader of a trio or larger group – and there's a more introspective quality to the record ... LP, Vinyl record album

Thelonious Monk

Unique Thelonious Monk
Riverside, 1956. Very Good+
The session's billed as "very personal treatments of great standards" – and it's a great twist on familiar material, all given the Thelonius touch! There's less of Monk's creative composition and angular group arrangements going on here – and instead, the album's almost a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Thelonious Monk

Criss-Cross
Columbia, 1963. Near Mint-
A title and cover that beautifully illustrate the sharp-edged power of the Thelonious Monk quartet on Columbia – and a wonderful place to start if you're just digging Thelonious' music! The record is similar to the best of Monk's Columbia sides – in that it revisits older tunes and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Thelonious Monk

Misterioso (Riverside)
Riverside, 1958. Near Mint-
A key classic from Thelonious Monk's years at Riverside – and an album that's as compelling as its haunting title! The session features Thelonious working with a great quartet that includes Johnny Griffin on tenor, playing these wonderfully angular lines; Ahmed Abdul-Malik on bass, working ...

Thelonious Monk

Monk.
Columbia, 1964. Very Good+
Beautiful Columbia work from Thelonious Monk – a record that has as much warmth and charm as it does visionary modernist moments! A number of the tunes are standards, not Monk compositions – and they're done here with a sense of depth and joy of exploration that's really wonderful ... LP, Vinyl record album
Kings Of Jazz (Italy), 1951. Near Mint-
With JJ Johnson on trombone, Sonny Rollins on tenor sax, Kenny Drew on piano, and Art Blakey on drums. Titles include "Half Nelson", "Mike's Blues", "Move", and "Squirrel". LP, Vinyl record album

Miles Davis

Bitches Brew
Columbia, 1969. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
One of the few cases in jazz where an oft-played classic still resonates with power! The record itself is a key cap to Miles Davis' already-groundbreaking years of the 60s – a bold step forward, not just for his nascent electric sound, but also for jazz in general – and the benchmark ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny Rollins

East Broadway Run Down
Impulse, 1966. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of the most free-wheeling Sonny Rollins albums of the 60s – an album that features some very long, extended tracks that really break out from some of the straighter moments of Sonny's mid-60s recordings! The title track is an incredible 20 minute workout – one that almost feels ... LP, Vinyl record album

Miles Davis

Live Evil
Columbia, 1971. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
A beautiful live representation of the energy of the Bitches Brew years – one that has Miles Davis and the group really letting loose with free-flowing, modally-inspired lines – cooking up an incredible blend of acoustic and electric sounds at once! There's a bit of funk here, but not ... LP, Vinyl record album

Les McCann & Eddie Harris

Swiss Movement
Atlantic, 1969. Near Mint-
The extremely successful union of two of Atlantic's biggest funky jazz stars, caught live in Switzerland, with the amazing Benny Bailey sitting in on trumpet. The tracks are long and funky, and are virtually a blueprint for pop soul jazz playing of the time – mixing slinky rhythms with some ... LP, Vinyl record album

Conte Candoli, Shorty Rogers, Bob Cooper, & Others

Best From The West Volumes 1 & 2
Fresh Sound/Blue Note (Spain), 1954. Near Mint- Gatefold
A real rarity in West Coast jazz – originally issued as a very obscure Blue Note session recorded on the west coast in the mid 50s – released as a "blindfold test" under the supervision of Leonard Feather, but featuring some of Blue Note's only west coast jazz sessions of the ...
