My Memories

LP (Item 975970) Argo, 1958 — Condition: Very Good

With arrangements by Tony Osborne and production by Dave Usher.  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono black label pressing with deep groove. Cover has light surface wear and small splits on the right corners.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Ahmad Jamal

Happy Moods
Argo, 1960. Very Good
A sprightly set from the Ahmad Jamal Trio – but also a record that's not as brightly colored as you might guess from the title, thanks to a nice undercurrent of darkness in the mix! Jamal's piano work is often nicely punctuated – perhaps living up to the "happy moods" ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ahmad Jamal

Macanudo
Argo, 1963. Very Good
One of Ahmad's best albums ever – a Latin-ized set of tracks done with arrangements by Richard Evans, who really knows how to make the set groove! Ahmad's flowing piano lines come into play with lots of tight percussion and big band backing – in a way that never dampens his spirit, and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Argo, 1958. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
One of Ahmad Jamal's best early albums for Argo – a brilliant set of live recordings, done at the Spotlite Club in Washington DC in 1958 – and with a fluid vibe that's simply incredible – one of the best true statements of Jamal's genius from the early years! The trio is ... LP, Vinyl record album
Argo, 1960. Good
Despite the fact that the title's "Introducing Roland Kirk", it's not actually Kirk's first album – but it is a heck of a smoker with a very unusual sound! The session features Roland with a Chicago group that includes Ira Sullivan on trumpet, Don Garrett on bass, and Ron Burton on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Benny Bailey, Ake Persson, & Others

Music Of Quincy Jones
Argo, 1960. Very Good+
An excellent album that's a perfect document of the strong impact that Quincy Jones had in the transatlantic jazz scene of the late 50s and early 60s. The set was recorded in 1960, and features two players that Quincy would leave behind in Europe to have a huge influence on the scene. Trumpeter ... 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

Ron Carter

Blues Farm
CTI, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold
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

Michal Urbaniak

Beginning
Catalyst, Early 70s. Near Mint- 2LP
A great 2LP set that brings together work from 2 early electric albums from this groundbreaking Polish jazz combo! Record one features the album Inactin – one of the greatest albums that Urbaniak ever cut – and a sparkling session of funky fusion recorded in Germany, at the studios of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dave Brubeck

Time Further Out
Columbia, 1961. Near Mint-
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
Trend, 1979. Near Mint-
Overlooked work from west coast tenor giant Bob Cooper – recorded years after his initial fame with the Kenton group, but in an intimate, well-crafted group setting that's plenty darn nice! Bob's on tenor here, and working with a quartet that includes Carl Schroeder on piano, Bob Magnusson ... LP, Vinyl record album

Woody Herman

Giant Steps
Fantasy, 1973. Near Mint-
Genius 70s work from Woody Herman – funky big band with electric touches, served up on a range of wonderful tunes! Woody's still at the helm of the group on saxes and clarinet – but as with other Fantasy and Cadet albums, the real thanks here goes to arrangers – who include Bill ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rune Gustafsson & Zoot Sims

Sweetest Sounds
Pablo, 1978. Near Mint-
Rune's guitar and Zoot's tenor – in a group that features additional guitar by Bucky Pizzarelli, with George Mraz on bass and Peter Donald on drums. LP, Vinyl record album
