For Singers Only Kit Vol 1 – Ballads

LP (Item 924171) Vee Jay, 1960 — Condition: Sealed

(Shrinkwrap has a hole in front.)

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.

Bird Lives!
Vee Jay, 1962. Very Good+
In the years after Charlie Parker passed away, tributes to his greatness were a very common thing in local jazz scenes across the US. This is a prime example of that tradition, but way more than that, it's also a killer Chicago jazz session from the old days – featuring trumpeter Ira ... LP, Vinyl record album
Vee Jay, 1961. Very Good+
The album seems to contain mostly material from the album that was originally titled Kelly At Midnight – but possibly alternate takes. The session dates from 1961, and features Kelly in a trio with Jimmy Cobb and Paul Chambers – grooving on soul jazz versions of tracks like "Someda ... LP, Vinyl record album

Louis Hayes
Vee Jay, Early 60s. Near Mint-
An excellent lost album on Vee Jay! The album's one of the few ever cut as a leader by Louis Hayes – a very soulful talent who's probably best known for his work with Horace Silver and Cannonball Adderley during the late 50s. Hayes' has a wonderful approach to the record – borrowing ... LP, Vinyl record album

Black Whip
Prestige, 1973. Very Good
Amazing stuff from Ivan Boogaloo Joe Jones! Unlike some of the other players on Prestige during the early 70s – who often got a bit weaker as the decade moved on, thanks to the departure of some of the better forces arranging and producing the records – Jones kept on playing hard, ...

Ornette Coleman

Tomorrow Is the Question!
Contemporary, 1959. Very Good-
Tomorrow may be the question, but the record screams "today!" – and even this many years after its recording, this early set by Ornette Coleman has an energy and presence that cannot be denied! The sound here is kind of a rougher take on the mode that would gel more strongly on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Roland Kirk

We Free Kings
Mercury, 1961. Near Mint-
One of Roland Kirk's classic early recordings for Mercury, and the kind of stuff that has him mixing his wild reed playing with more traditional hardbop structures. Most of the tracks are quartet sides, with piano, bass, and drums backing Kirk up – but the real focus is on Kirks solos, which ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hank Mobley

Slice Of The Top
Blue Note, 1966/1979. Sealed
A lost session by Hank Mobley – originally recorded in 1966, but not officially issued until 1979, and then only briefly until another short issue in the mid 90s! The record has Mobley really reaching out into a new bag – hitting a more soulfully arranged sound than on some of his ... LP, Vinyl record album

Charles Tyler

Voyage From Jericho
Ak Ba, 1975. Near Mint-
A strange album from Tyler – and one that's almost funky! The record features Tyler in the company of free modal players Steve Reid, Arthur Blythe, Ronnie Boykins, and Earl Cross – and the album has a nice open-ended loft jazz sound that mixes spiritualism and free post-ESP playing in ...

Steve Grossman

Terra Firma
PM, 1977. Very Good+
A stone slammer from saxophonist Steve Grossman – and a set that's served up in the same funky style as the best work by the related Stone Alliance combo! The core trio features tremendous interplay between the hard-biting tenor of Steve Grossman the funky bass of Gene Perla, and slamming ... LP, Vinyl record album

At The Cafe Bohemia Volume 1
Blue Note, Late 50s. Near Mint-
Classic early set featuring the Jazz Messengers back when the group still included Horace Silver, Hank Mobley, and Kenny Dorham. Hard hard hard bop, cracklin' with energy, and a great example of the kind of playing that made the group an instant success. Tracks include "Minor's Holiday" ... LP, Vinyl record album
