La Jazztek

LP (Item 886643) Capitol (Canada), 1968 — Condition: Near Mint-

An album with a sound as hip as its title, and one that features Gagnon on alto, tenor, and flute – all played with a nicely sharp tone that's at once both strongly modern, yet also surprisingly soulful – the kind of vibe you might expect from Roland Kirk or Yusef Lateef, but with less of the experimental mode of those players. The group's a quartet – with Art Roberts on piano, Michel Donato on bass, and Claude Ranger on drums – all showing a wonderful ear for rhythm that's often rompingly modal, yet in ways that are somewhat different from European exponents of that groove at the time. Titles include "Impressions Discotheque", "Suite", "Take Five", "Summertime", and "Con Alma".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Stereo pressing. Cover has light wear, and some splitting on the top seam, which is partially taped.)

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.

Capitol, Late 60s. Very Good
Very moody stuff – especially for the time it was recorded! The album came out in the late 60s, a time when most guitarists were plugging in, fuzzing out, and really getting crazy – but George Van Eps was still keeping his cool, playing gently swinging lines on his unique 7 string ...

Fantastic work from the massive electric years of the Cannonball Adderley Quintet – one of the group's last records to feature the keyboards of Joe Zawinul – and also one of the heaviest from the time!

If you ever needed a key example of the genius of Cannonball on Capitol Records, this tight little set may well be it!

A great album of soulful tenor work from Willie Williams – with some great rhythm support from Ronnie Mathews on piano, Curtis Lundy on bass, and Kenny Washington on drums – very much in that great space the New Note label hit during the mid 80s!

Everywhere
Impulse, 1966. Very Good+ Gatefold
One of the greatest albums ever from trombonist Roswell Rudd – an early Impulse Records session, cut right at a time when Rudd was a crucial part of the New York "new thing" scene in the 60s!
