Frozen Days

LP (Item 883403) Crown (Japan), 1974 — Condition: Near Mint-

Searing work from pianist Yosuke Yamashita – working here in his legendary trio with Akira Sakata on alto sax!  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original Crown pressing with insert. Cover has a split spine and some edge wear.)

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.

Yosuke Yamashita

Enja (Germany), 1976. Near Mint-
Fantastic solo work from this revolutionary Japanese pianist – and a set that not only features some of his striking originals, but also versions of "A Night In Tunisia" and "Autumn Leave" – both of which make for a nice contrast! LP, Vinyl record album

Red Callender

Red Callender Speaks Low
Crown, Late 50s. Very Good-
One of the few albums ever recorded by Red Callender – a player who certainly speaks "low", given that his instrument here is the tuba! Red's got a rumbling, bassy sound that's surprisingly un-corny – an approach to the tuba that's also informed by Callender's many years ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stan Getz

Groovin High
Crown/Modern, Late 40s. Very Good-
Some of the most hard-edged work cut by Stan Getz in the early years – a great reminder that he could really open up with the best of the bop world – and not just lay back and get mellow with an electric guitar! The setting has Stan working with some key west coast talents – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Crown, Early 50s. Very Good+
Surprisingly great bop material from the LA scene – issued in a package that's no great shakes, but pretty wonderful from a music perspective. LP, Vinyl record album

Conte Candoli

Little Band Big Jazz
Crown, 1960. Very Good
An incredible record – and the kind of rare LA bop session that got totally lost because it was never packaged properly! This obscure set was issued by the Crown label under a number of names – both the Conte Candoli All Stars and Vince Guaraldi – and the group includes Conte ... LP, Vinyl record album
Crown, 1948. Very Good
Seminal sounds from the LA scene of the late 40s – one of the most important records to showcase the tenor talents of the legendary Wardell Gray – a key player on the harder side of the west coast for its formative bop years – and one whose career was cut short all too soon! The ... LP, Vinyl record album

Joe Houston

Surf Rockin
Crown, Early 60s. Very Good-
... LP, Vinyl record album
Crown, Mid 50s. Very Good+
One of those off brand-looking albums on the Crown label – but like the rest, always better than you'd expect from the cover! Paul Desmond's included – and titles include "Que Tanto", "Cherry Pickin", "Lyons Busy", and "Faded Blues". LP, Vinyl record album

Maxwell Davies

Salute To Stan Kenton
Crown, Late 50s. Sealed
West coast arranger Maxwell Davies works here with members of Stan Kenton's group – LA modernists who include Bob Cooper and Bill Holman on tenor, Bud Shank on alto, Frank Rosolino and Milt Burnhart on trombone, Conte and Pete Candoli on trumpets, and Mel Lewis on drums! LP, Vinyl record album
Crown (Japan), 1976. Near Mint-
Killer live work from Clark Terry – recorded at one of the high points in his career! The relaxed set really has a nice edge – a bit rougher than some of the bigger-label Terry dates from the west at the time – and the group features Ernie Wilkins on tenor, Marty Harris on piano, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Fantasy, 1972. Very Good
The Funky Quarters must have been a hell of a place – especially when Cal Tjader was bringing down the house with grooves this great! The record is one of Cal's best electric sides from the 70s – and it boasts some amazing work on Fender Rhodes from Al Zulaica – a player we only ... LP, Vinyl record album
