Modern Jazz Gallery (10 inch LP)

LP (Item 930901) Columbia (Japan), Late 50s — Condition: Near Mint-

Very cool – an unusual Japanese 10" album of late 50s Columbia work from Art Blakey – with a cool modernist cover to boot! Includes "Infra Rae" and "Ecaroh" with the Jazz Messengers – and "Oscalpyso" and "The Sacrifice" with The Art Blakey Percussion Ensemble!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(In great shape – and in a cool flip-back cover too.)

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.

Art Blakey

Wild
Fontana (Japan), Early 60s. Very Good
One of the coolest entries in that overseas series from Fontana from the 60s – one that features a jazz artist with a groovy girl – an a unique presentation of vintage American material! This set features Art Blakey work for Riverside – and titles include "On The Ginza" ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, Late 50s. Near Mint-
A wonderfully hard-storming set – and a record that not only firmly put the Jazz Messengers on the map, but also set a whole new standard for live jazz recording! The group here is the early version of the Messengers – almost co-led by drummer Art Blakey with pianist Horace Silver ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Note, 1960. Very Good+
Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers, recording in the very familiar territory of the Birdland nightclub – in a format that was handled previously by the Blue Note label, but maybe never with a lineup this great! The performance features the sublime frontline trio of Lee Morgan on trumpet, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Columbia (Netherlands), Early 50s. Very Good+
One of our favorite Duke Ellington albums, and a sometimes-overlooked work that stands as one of his best compositions from the time. The "Liberian Suite" was originally issued as a 10" LP, and is one extended suite of tracks commissioned by the Liberian government for their ... LP, Vinyl record album

Weather Report

Sweetnighter
Columbia, 1973. Near Mint-
One of our favorite albums ever from Weather Report – an album that has them picking up a bit more soul than before, and shaking off some of the experimental sounds of their roots – yet all in a way that still makes them one of the most revolutionary fusion combos of the time! There's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Miles Davis

Round About Midnight
Columbia, 1956. Near Mint-
Thelonious Monk may have written the title tune, but Miles Davis makes it all his own here – blowing with a subtle moody magic that makes the album one of his true treasures from the early Columbia Records years! John Coltrane's along on tenor sax – helping Davis expand the sound the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Heath Brothers

Expressions Of Life
Columbia, 1981. Near Mint-
Great work by The Heath Brothers – a lot slicker and smoother than their earlier album for Strata East, but still filled with a soulful jazzy approach that befits their rich talents! By the point of this album, Jimmy Heath, once a rougher talent on the tenor, had emerged as one of the smooth ... LP, Vinyl record album

Thelonious Monk

Straight No Chaser
Columbia, 1967. Near Mint-
Classic 60s work from Thelonious Monk – featuring his incredible quartet with Charlie Rouse on tenor, certainly Monk's best-ever musical soulmate! The album features some newer versions of older tunes, and a few written just for the album – but the source of the material is not ... LP, Vinyl record album

Al Di Meola

Elegant Gypsy
Columbia, 1977. Near Mint-
A set that features DiMeola moving into some very dynamic territory – jamming out heavy on a mix of electric and acoustic guitars, with additional help from Paco DeLucia on acoustic at points. The instrumentation also features heavy electric piano from Jan Hammer, other keyboards from Barry ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wayne Shorter & Milton Nascimento

Native Dancer
Columbia, 1975. Very Good+
A beautiful little album, very different than Wayne Shorter's other work, and sort of a "return of the favor" to the nation of Brazil for the country's rich musical influence on his music! Milton Nascimento sings vocals on most cuts, and if anything, the album resembles Nascimento's work ... LP, Vinyl record album
