Artie Shaw & His Gramercy Five #1 (10 inch LP)

LP (Item 994864) Clef, Early 50s — Condition: Very Good

Mighty nice small combo work – with Tal Farlow on guitar, Joe Roland on vibes, and Hank Jones on piano!  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(UK pressing on Columbia, in a flip-back cover. Cover has some wear and aging, lightly bent corners, some gloss peel at the edges, and fading along the top seam and spine.)

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.

Clef, 1959. Very Good+
The classic tunes of Duke Ellington are turned towards the soulful style of the Oscar Peterson Trio – in a setting that makes these familiar numbers come alive again with a whole new quality!

Lionel Hampton

Lionel Hampton Quartet
Clef, Early 50s. Very Good
Great Verve material from Lionel Hampton – and like most of his sides for the label, a set that offers small combo grooving in a very stretched out setting! The album only features 4 long tracks – and Hampton's vibes are set up nicely with a trio that includes Oscar Peterson on piano, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Count Basie

Band Of Distinction
Clef, Early 50s. Very Good-
It certainly was the band of distinction – especially at this point, when the group featured players like Frank Foster, Frank Wess, Ernie Wilkins, Marshall Royal, Joe Newman, Thad Jones, Bennie Powell, and Freddie Green.

Gene Krupa

Gene Krupa Quartet
Clef, Early 50s. Very Good
The drummin' man leads a quartet that includes Bobby Scott on piano, John Drew on bass, and the amazing (and amazingly underrecorded) Eddie Shu on tenor.

Cannonball Adderley

Phenix
Fantasy, 1975. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
Sweet funky 70s work from Cannonball Adderley – a record that has him revisiting older tunes from his early soul jazz years – but in ways that give them a whole new electric vibe overall! The album's actually Cannonball's last full studio set, but it's also one of his greatest too ... LP, Vinyl record album
