Vince Guaraldi
Jazz Impressions Of Charlie Brown

  (Item #: guarajazzi_charl_1804_1808) 

Our Price: $199.99

  • This outstanding pressing boasts excellent Double Plus (A++) sound from first note to last
  • Guaraldi introduced the world to his unique, melodic, elegantly simple style with this very album - only a pressing this good does the timeless score justice
  • This copy is exceptionally quiet for a Vince Guaraldi album, Mint Minus to Mint Minus Minus - they don't survive any quieter in our experience
  • 5 stars: "The most remarkable thing, besides the high quality of Guaraldi's whimsically swinging tunes, is that he did not compromise his art one iota for the cartoon world; indeed, he sounds even more engaged, inventive, and lighthearted in his piano work here than ever."

Lee Morgan
The Sidewinder

  (Item #: morgasidew_1804_1808) 

Our Price: $179.99

  • This wonderful copy of this Blue Note classic earned Double Plus (A++) grades or close to it on both sides and plays on relatively quiet vinyl
  • Unusually rich, full-bodied, lively and present sound which brings out the best in this music
  • It's nearly impossible to find clean vintage pressings of Blue Notes these days, let alone copies that sound as good as this one does
  • 5 stars: "Carried by its almost impossibly infectious eponymous opening track, The Sidewinder helped foreshadow the sounds of boogaloo and soul-jazz with its healthy R&B influence and Latin tinge... The group works together seamlessly to create an album that crackles with energy while maintaining a stylish flow."

Our Price: $169.99

  • With excellent Double Plus (A++) sound throughout, this was one of the better copies from our most recent shootout

  • This early Verve stereo pressing plays about as quiet as they ever do - Mint Minus to Mint Minus Minus on both sides
  • 4 1/2 Stars: "Surprisingly enough this 1963 LP was the first time (other than a couple songs) that Ella Fitzgerald and Count Basie recorded together. The match-up was so logical that it would be repeated many times over the next 20 years."
