Musique Por Les Drageurs – Errol Parker No 2

LP (Item 953125) Decca (France), Early 60s — Condition: Near Mint-

Early work from French pianist Errol Parker – not nearly as modern as his albums of the 70s, but still very nice in an old school way – with a dexterity and inherent sense of rhythm on the piano that's almost like Erroll Garner or Art Tatum! Titles include "Venus", "Orfeu Negro", "Love In Portofino", "Sophie", "Moi Lo", "Baisez Moi", and "Bal De Vienne".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Heavy stereo pressing! Cover has a small rip on the opening edge, but is very nice overall.)

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.

A groovy 60s set from pianist Errol Parker – with two nice originals "Sats" and "Soulful"! LP, Vinyl record album
Sahara, 1982. Near Mint-
An album of solo piano work by the enigmatic Errol Parker. As the title says, the album's a tribute to Monk – and in a way, it's nice to hear Parker playing in this sort of complicated piano style, which wasn't always heard that often since the days of his early French recordings.

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

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!

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 ...

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!

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!
