Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

Twin trombones from Robin Eubanks and Steve Turre – the latter of whom also plays some of his cool shells too! Other players include Mulgrew Miller on piano and Charnett Moffett on bass – and as with other JMT albums of this vintage, there's some electric touches too. LP, Vinyl record album

Barry Harris Sextet

Bull's Eye!
Prestige, 1968. Near Mint-
A sock-hard set of Detroit soul jazz that's one of Barry Harris' best albums of the 60s! The group on the record is a sextet – with Kenny Dorham on trumpet, Charles McPherson on tenor, and Pepper Adams on baritone – forging a much harder frontline than you'll hear on some of Barry's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, Late 60s. Sealed
Totally totally cool LP that has this groovy group playing with Oliver Nelson – who plays soprano on most tracks. The sound is very groovy, and very Now Sound, with a female vocal duet, and mod swingin' jazzy lyrics. The LP's got a nice version of "My Favorite Things", a cool ... LP, Vinyl record album

Wynder K Frog

Out Of The Frying Pan
United Artists, 1969. Near Mint-
A lost Hammond classic – from organist Mick Weaver, who famously worked with the group Traffic! This set's a lot different than the work he did in that band, though – as the album's all instrumental, and has a quick-stepping, all-soul sound that's a lot like the best Jimmy McGriff ... LP, Vinyl record album

Charles Mingus

Mingus Ah Um
Columbia, 1959. Very Good+
One of Charles Mingus' true classics – and an essential album in any jazz collection! This 1959 gem was recorded by Mingus at a key point in his career – when he was rising from the jazz underground into the ranks of America's elite jazzmen, penning some of the most challenging work of ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Coltrane

Love Supreme
Impulse, 1964. Sealed Gatefold
Maybe one of the greatest jazz albums of all time – a real breakthrough moment for the legendary John Coltrane, and the blueprint for generations of jazz records to come! Trane was already breaking down plenty of boundaries before Love Supreme – but he knocked it out of the park for ... LP, Vinyl record album

Clifford Jordan & Sonny Red

Story Tale
Jazzland, 1961. Near Mint-
A brilliant collaboration between Clifford Jordan and Sonny Red! At the time of this recording, Jordan was one of a number of firey young tenor players from Chicago – all of them hard-blowing, with a nice soulful bottom that opened up a bop sound to more moods and emotions – but Jordan ... LP, Vinyl record album

Milt Jackson

Meet Milt Jackson
Savoy, Mid 50s. Near Mint-
Great early material from Milt Jackson – very different than his 50s material with the MJQ, and much more in the spirit of his work for Blue Note! The groups here vary – and in addition to vibes, milt handles a bit of piano, and even sings on one track too – alongside players who ... LP, Vinyl record album

Richard Williams

New Horn In Town
Candid, Early 60s. Very Good+
A brilliant session of modernist hardbop – one of the few records ever cut as a leader by trumpeter Richard Williams! Williams was a key part of the Charles Mingus group for a few years – and his soulful approach ranks with Ted Curson as some of the most compelling underground trumpet ... LP, Vinyl record album
20th Century/Westbound, 1975. Sealed
Classic work from Fantastic Four – who are really hitting their stride vocally, moving into a whole new sound from their work in the late 60s. The groove is a mix of 70s harmony soul and early Westbound disco – and the longish tracks get quite involved, both vocally and arrangement-wise ... LP, Vinyl record album
