Los Graduados

LP (Item 931125) Codiscos/Zeida (Colombia), 1969 — Condition: Very Good-

(Cover no longer has the plastic outer sleeve, and comes in two panels. Cover and label have an inscription in pen.)

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Tito Rodriguez

Uptempo
Tico, Late 50s/1978. Very Good+
We're not entirely sure, but we have a feeling that the material on this set is older than the 1978 date on the album – as it feels a lot like classic Tito from the early days, possibly from his first few LPs at Tico. Tracks are short, with distinct choppy late 50s-styled grooves – and ... LP, Vinyl record album
ABC, 1957. Near Mint-
Candido's firey conga is backed by a tight jazz group conducted by Ernie Wilkins. The players include Art Farmer, Jimmy Cleveland, Hank Jones, and Ernie Royal, and although they don't get to solo much, they play nice and hard, and give Candido great support in the background. Tracks include " ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Palmieri

Vamonos Pa'l Monte
Tico, 1971. Very Good+
Brilliant 70s work by Eddie Palmieri – easily one of his greatest records of the decade! The album features Eddie really showing off his jazz chops on a number of longer tracks – tunes that bring together some of the spirit forged during the Harlem River Drive era, with some of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Tico, 1960s/Early 70s. Very Good+
Very nice greatest hits compilation that brings together some of Eddie's best tracks from the 60's, most of which is quite tough to find on wax! Ismael Quintana sings on some cuts, and others are instrumentals with a Latin jazz groove. Titles include "African Twist", "Azucar", ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Palmieri

La Verdad – The Truth
Fania, 1987. Very Good+
A great little salsa session – issued in kind of a cheapo cover, but with some of Eddie's best grooves of the 80s! The album's got a great jazzy touch, and the rhythm section is excellent – very subtle, and with a dark edge that works perfectly with Eddie's piano solos. Most tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album

La Pachanga

... LP, Vinyl record album
Vik/RCA, 1957. Near Mint-
Noro Morales' most ambitious recording, and a beautiful reading of Ernesto Lecuona's extended Afro Cuban Suite! The suite spans both sides of the album, and is done here in a beautiful orchestral intervweaving of Latin themes, with arrangements by George Siravo, and piano by Noro, who also leads ... LP, Vinyl record album

Poncho Sanchez

El Conguero
Picante, 1985. Near Mint-
One of Poncho's excellent 80s sides for Concord/Picante – some of the finest Latin jazz recorded in the US at the time, taking the torch from the New York scene, and showing that west coast players could really keep the groove strong and true! Poncho leads a group that includes piano, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Budd Johnson

Ya Ya (Argo)
Argo, 1964. Very Good+
One of the most soulful sessions ever cut by tenorist Budd Johnson – recorded with a cool combo that features Al Williams on some smoking Hammond – plus bass and drums. Lots of tracks are originals – and titles include the jazz dance groover "Ya Ya" – plus "Ex ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jack McDuff

Gin & Orange
Cadet, 1969. Very Good+
Fuzzy, funky genius from the great Jack McDuff – a killer late 60s set done for Chess Records, and one that mixes his own searing Hammond with wicked arrangements from the mighty Richard Evans! Given Evans' background in the Chicago soul scene, there's a gritty groove here you don't get on ... LP, Vinyl record album
