This image is a general representation of the item and the actual product may differ slightly in terms of color shading, logo placement, borders, or other small details. Used items may have various cosmetic differences as well.
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.
If the 60's ever had a "hit" jazz record, it was probably this one! The album's a sparkling live session featuring the trademark soul jazz sounds of the Cannonball Adderley group with Joe Zawinul on acoustic and electric piano, and brother Nat Adderley on cornet. The tracks have a long ... LP, Vinyl record album
A collection of some of Kenton's early 50s hits. Most of the tracks that are included were arranged by Pete Rugolo and they include "Peg O' My Heart", "He's Funny That Way", "Capitol Punishment", "Painted Rhythm", "Lover", "Somnambulism", ... LP, Vinyl record album
Later modern work by Kenton – but still pretty darn great! The album features arrangements by Johnny Richards – clever explorations in time that still swing with that nice Richards touch, played by a group that features a number of lesser-known younger players, including Don Menza, who' ... LP, Vinyl record album
Early 70s Capitol collection – includes a 50s cooker from Gerry Mulligan – working here with a real birth of the cool-styled group that includes Chet Baker and Pete Candoli on trumpets, Bud Shank on alto, John Graas on French horn, Bob Enevoldsen on trombone, and Chico Hamilton on drums ...

LP, Vinyl record album
Moody mid-60's set in which Kenton has Pete Rugolo re-arrange some of his classics, then set them to lyrics written by Milt Raskin, which are then sung by a wispy chorus. Mood music, but with an edge, and nice modernist Kenton overtones. Titles inlcude "Flame", "Moonlove", ... LP, Vinyl record album
One of the hippest Stan Kenton albums of the 60s – a set of original compositions by Dee Barton – Stan's drummer at the time, and a composer to rival the great ones who contributed to the Kenton group of the 40s and 50s! Barton's work here is totally great – modern, but never too ... LP, Vinyl record album
A very unusual set from 60s Canada – a set that features a unique blend of jazz, vocal, and Caribbean modes – all handled by the large ensemble pictured on the cover! Some tracks are vocal, some are instrumental, and there's a nicely varied approach throughout – all directed by ... LP, Vinyl record album
Probably the best of Buddy Montgomery's solo albums, with a tight little group that features Mel Rhyne on organ, Jodie Christian on piano, and brother Monk Montgomery on sweet heavy bass – all coming together in a messed up style of funky jazz! Buddy plays piano and vibes on a number of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sweet electric work from Ron Carter – subtle magic in the best CTI mode! Ron arranged the set himself, but he's working with a core group of CTI players that includes Bob James and Richard Tee on electric piano, Hubert Laws on flute, Ralph MacDonald on percussion, and Billy Cobham on drums ... LP, Vinyl record album
Although this should be a "sell out" album for Stan – because it's got his tenor set amidst some sweeping larger arrangements – it's actually still a pretty dope little LP, and one that shows Turrentine's capacity for hitting a nice groove in kind of a soundtrack-y funk vein. ... LP, Vinyl record album
Like Dave Brubeck's legendary Time Out set? Try this one – a great record that takes off from the concept of the first, but which goes in some very fresh new directions – using the same great group with Paul Desmond on alto, Eugene Wright on bass, and Joe Morello on drums! Dave's ... LP, Vinyl record album
