Goose Sauce

LP (Item 927763) Original (UK), 1977 — Condition: Very Good+

A key transitional moment for British composer Mike Westbrook – an indie set from the late 70s, recorded after a rise to fame on bigger labels! The set's jokingly billed to "Mike Westbrook Brass Band" – but the style here isn't nearly what you'd expect – a much freer approach to the music even than on some of Mike's earlier albums, and hardly with the too-brassy sound you might anticipate from that name – although some passages echo older styles of horn work, but in a slightly ironic way. Players include Dave Chambers on tenor, soprano sax, and flute; Paul Rutherford on trombone and euphonium, Phil Minton on trumpet, Kate Westbrook on piccolo, and Nisar Hamad George Khan on baritone and soprano saxes – plus Mike himself on piano – and all players do a bit of vocalizing at times, in ways that are sometimes looser than on earlier Westbrook records, but occasionally a bit more song-based too. Titles include "Gooswing", "Alabama Song", "Mourn Not The Dead", "Jackie-Ing", "Ten Cents A Dance", and "Wheels Go Round".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Joe Beck

Beck
Kudu, 1975. Near Mint-
A great little Kudu set from guitarist Joe Beck – a player who's sounding a lot tighter here than some of his odd psychedelic experiments of the 60s – but still pretty darn great overall! The style is smooth, as you'd expect from Kudu, but Joe's still got plenty of edges in his guitar ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gary Burton

Good Vibes
Atlantic, 1970. Near Mint-
Gary Burton hits a sweet electric funky sound here – a great groove that really makes the album stand out from most of his other work! The support Burton gets is a big reason for the greatness of the date – as he's working in a group that includes Eric Gale on guitar, Richard Tee on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Impulse, 1963/1964. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A pretty nice 2LP set that collects together McCoy's early trio sides for Impulse – pulled from albums that were issued under his own name, and mostly featuring Coltrane-based lineups that either include Jimmy Garrison or Art Davis on bass, and Elvin Jones on drums. The set features 2 tunes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Oscar Peterson

Eloquence
Limelight, 1965. Near Mint- Gatefold
A sprightly mid 60s session from the Oscar Peterson Trio – one of the last live recordings from the famous lineup that featured Ray Brown on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums! The performance was captured at the Tivoli Gardens, in Copenhagen – and recorded in an open style that really gets ... LP, Vinyl record album

Billy Cobham

Magic
Columbia, 1977. Near Mint- Gatefold
A real jammer of a record from Billy Cobham – almost a summation of all the work he'd done in earlier years, smoothed out with a sweet funky late 70s fusion groove! The sound on the set is really tight – still plenty hard on the instrumentation, but also with a focus that we really ... LP, Vinyl record album

Buddy Rich

New One!
Pacific Jazz, 1967. Near Mint- Gatefold
Very hard-burning work from Buddy's hip band of the mid 60s – a large ensemble, but one that features searing horn parts that cut through the bigger arrangements with ease! Buddy really had an ear for tuning power with personality at this point in his career – and although the group ... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol, 1961. Near Mint-
A classic jazz interpretation of the score to West Side Story – served up in ultra-hip fashion by the Stan Kenton Orchestra! Although the tunes are familiar, the readings are extremely creative – and use Leonard Bernstein's original music as the starting point for a rich tapestry of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Epic, 1968. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of the most starkly beautiful recordings in Paul Horn's career – with spiritually resonant, almost spine tingling solo flute and some chants, all recorded in the Taj Majal one day in April of 1968! It's really all about the atmosphere, as it would have to be given the location – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1971. Near Mint-
Hip work from both players – and Jarrett plays electric piano and soprano sax too – in a group that also features Sam Brown on guitar, Steve Swallow on bass, and Bill Goodwin on drums. Titles include "Como En Vietnam", "Fortune Smiles", "The Raven Speaks", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Joao Gilberto

Amoroso
Warner, 1977. Near Mint-
A warmly intimate album from Joao Gilberto – one that has the singer and guitarist in the same special space as his wonderful albums from the early 70s - a bit more sophisticated than the bossa years, but equally personal throughout! The set was co-produced by Helen Keane – who was ... LP, Vinyl record album
