At The Embers

LP (Item 922233) Capitol, 1950s — Condition: Very Good+

With Peppi Moreale on piano, John Giuff on bass, and Buzzy Drootin on drums.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono rainbow label pressing. Cover has a peeled spot from sticker removal, small split in the top seam, and center split in the bottom seam.)

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.

Song Of Innocence
Capitol, 1968. Near Mint-
One of a handful of amazing albums recorded by David Axelrod towards the end of the 60s – really stunning, genre-breaking music that was years ahead of its time – and which has only finally been getting its due in more recent decades! At the time of the record, Axelrod was a house ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stan Kenton

Adventures In Jazz
Capitol, Early 60s. Very Good+
Stan reprises his famous modernist swing in a great little album that's one of his best works from the early 60s. The tracks are longish, with the mixture of dark shading and breakout solos that grace some of his best early work – and although the players in the group aren't the famous west ...

Stan Kenton

Adventures In Time
Capitol, 1962. Very Good+
Later modern work by Kenton – but still pretty darn great!

LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1967. Very Good+
One of the hippest Stan Kenton albums of the 60s – a set of original compositions by Dee Barton – Stan's drummer at the time, and a composer to rival the great ones who contributed to the Kenton group of the 40s and 50s! Barton's work here is totally great – modern, but never too ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ebony In Rhythem
Capitol (Canada), Mid 60s. Very Good+
A very unusual set from 60s Canada – a set that features a unique blend of jazz, vocal, and Caribbean modes – all handled by the large ensemble pictured on the cover!

Curtis Fuller

Cabin In The Sky
Impulse, Early 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold
A very unique album by Curtis Fuller – quite different than any of his other records at the time! The session has Curtis blowing on tunes from the score to Cabin In The Sky – arranged by Manny Albam, and performed by a large group that includes Freddy Hubbard, Hank Jones, and Bob ... LP, Vinyl record album
Cadet, Late 60s. Very Good+
One of McDuff's fantastic Cadet LPs, and one that features the funky funky organist in a set of crazy arrangements written by him and Richard Evans. An amazing mix of McDuff's soul jazz organ sound with the genius that was the Chess/Cadet studio system of the late 60's – and one that yields ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lou Donaldson

Sweet Lou
Blue Note, 1974. Sealed
Sweet Lou, but funky Lou too – a perfect blend of modes that makes for one of Donaldson's last great albums for Blue Note! The set's got some fuller arrangements from Horace Ott – but given Ott's work in the indie soul world during the 60s, there's still a nice edge to the record too ... LP, Vinyl record album

Quincy Jones

Mellow Madness
A&M, 1973. Sealed
A really great, oft-overlooked album from the best period of Quincy Jones! This album is quite possibly Quincy's most farthest-reaching – as he works in an array of styles that really shows his growing genius in the studio – not just jazz and soundtrack modes, but more soul-based ones, ...
