LP (Item 955770) Mercury (Netherlands), 1976 — Condition: Near Mint-

With David Mancini, Gordon Stout, Ted Moore, Ted Rounds, and James Saporito.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Erroll Garner

Garnering
Mercury, Early 50s. Very Good+
This set's definitely full of Garnering – that lopingly rhythmic approach to the keys that set Erroll apart from all the rest back in the day – in a mode that almost sounds like he's making things up as he goes along, deciding which course to take at the very last moment. The album's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Houston Person

Pure Pleasure
Mercury, 1976. Very Good
Slicker than usual for Houston Person, but still a pretty nice album of tighly produced R&B-oriented jazz. The group includes a lot of hip players, like Cecil Bridgewater, Paul Griffin, and Bruce Nazarian – and the record has arrangements by Jimmy Roach. Tracks are long, and titles ...

Improvisations
Mercury, 1956. Very Good
Not as freely improvised as you might think – but a nice set from the mid 50s, issued here with bonus unreleased tracks, and one that features Grappelli as the lead soloist in a quartet with Maurice Vander on piano and harpsichord, Pierre Michelot on bass, and Baptiste Reilles on drums. ...

Mercury, 1951. Very Good+
A great modern jazz-meets-strings session that follows from Burns' exploratory "Introspection" title for the Jazz Scene collection!

Chet Baker

Chet Baker Big Band
Pacific Jazz, 1956. Near Mint-
Excellent work – and believe it or not, a great big band album led by Chet Baker! Although Chet's mostly best known for his work in small groups, he's really shining here as the leader of a large ensemble that includes a mix of "cool" west coast players on horns – Bud Shank, ...

Art Farmer

Perception
Argo, 1961. Very Good+
An amazingly beautiful set of tracks from Art Farmer – playing here with superb accompaniment from a young Harold Mabern on piano, in a laidback quartet format that really lets Art open up! Art's playing is fresh and creative throughout – never too over the top, and always blown with ... LP, Vinyl record album
