World Of Dudley Moore

LP (Item 948885) Decca (UK), 1970 — Condition: Very Good+

Lovely lovely work from Dudley Moore – known to most as a comedic actor, but also a heck of a jazz pianist, and head of his own groovy trio during the 60s! The tunes mix together soul jazz and bossa trio styles – all dancing together in Dud's incredibly light-touched style on the ivories – and the set's got some great original numbers – including the groover "Poova Nova", the slow stepper "Sooz Blues", and the cuts "Lysie Does It" and "Take Your Time".  © 1996-2020, 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.

Ellis Larkins

Manhattan At Midnight
Decca, 1956. Very Good
A dark suite of tracks dedicated to New York after hours – played by the wonderful Ellis Larkins, a vastly-overlooked 50s pianist who was always great at moody sessions like these! Most of the tunes are familiar ones – "Manhattan Serenade", "Lullaby Of Birdland", ... LP, Vinyl record album
Decca/London, 1972. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Hip 70s work from Stan Kenton – a set recorded live in the UK in 1972, in the best modern style he was using at the time! As with some of Kenton's other excellent 70s sessions, the players on the records are lesser-known than on his classic sets – but all are extremely well-suited to ... LP, Vinyl record album

Quartette Tres Bien

Boss Tres Bien (Decca pressing)
Decca, 1964. Near Mint-
A landmark blend of soul jazz and bossa nova – cut by the legendary Quartette Tres Bien back in the 60s! The group are kind of a "piano trio plus" – an outfit with piano, bass, and drums in the lead – but also plenty of conga and added percussion – a style used ... LP, Vinyl record album
Decca, 1958. Very Good+
One of the many releases in the surprisingly successful semi-genre of "jazz meets West Side Story" albums that came out in the late 50s and early 60s. Albam actually does a pretty great job of opening up the jazzy changes in Bernstein's score, and it helps that he's got great ensemble ... LP, Vinyl record album

Quartette Tres Bien

Our Thing
Decca, Mid 60s. Very Good+
Righteous grooviness by this great combo! The record was probably the group's 10th – recorded during a very successful run for Decca, when they were crafting finely groovy albums of soul jazz, in a mode that was similar to the early work by the Young-Holt Trio, but which also had the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Decca, Mid 50s. Very Good-
Easily one of our favorite of the Jazz Studio series on Decca – and despite the "from Hollywood" in the title, a great set of serious jazz! Geller works with a group that includes Milt Bernhardt on trombone, John Graas on French horn, Don Fagerquist on trumpet, Marty Paich on piano ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Graas

Jazz-Lab 1
Decca, 1955. Very Good-
A classic session from the second wave of LA cool jazz of the 50s – headed up by French horn player John Graas, a player as important to his instrument as Gerry Mulligan was to the baritone sax! Like Mulligan, Graas was working with an instrument that you might normally think of as clunky ... LP, Vinyl record album

Billy Gault

When Destiny Calls
Steeplechase/Inner City, 1976. Near Mint-
Great stuff – and a beautiful album of spiritual jazz recorded by this obscure piano player who worked briefly with Jackie McLean in the seventies. Billy Gault had an amazingly soulful way of putting together his work, but never got bogged down in too much sentiment. There's some beautiful ... LP, Vinyl record album

King Fleming Trio

Stand By
Argo, 1962. Very Good+
Incredible work from Chicago pianist King Fleming – a lost talent that had a key influence on more famous players in the scene, but who rarely got his due because he hardly left the Windy City! The set's got a really incredible feel – partly in the gentle groove of Ahmad Jamal, but ... LP, Vinyl record album
