This weeks jazz rarities include import pressings of albums by Count Basie, Ralph Burns, and Teddy Charles.
Below are just some of the highlights, and you can see the full catalogue over at our Jazz Collectors Store.
COUNT BASIE In Kansas City (Rare 1966 Japanese 16-track mono vinyl LP, manufactured by Victor, featuring Bennie Moten’s Great Band of 1930-1932, in sixteen sides that capture a young Basie in the wild, swinging Kansas City setting, silk laminated gatefold picture sleeve with obi-strip. There is a little light foxing inside the sleeve yet the vinyl remains in mint condition! VRA-5008).
RALPH BURNS Where There’s Burns There’s Fire (1961 US 12-track stereo LP, pasted picture sleeve. The sleeve is showing some edge scuffing but is otherwise hanging together quite well, with a clearly readable spine. There is a little paper lossto the back slick near the spine, but otherwise the sleeve shows no more shelfwear than you’d expect on a fifty year old sleeve of this type. The vinyl remains in amazing bear ‘as new’ condition with just a couple of light surface scuffs after all those years in the wild – A nice copy! W5001ST).
TEDDY CHARLES Three For Duke (1957 US 6-track mono LP, also featuring Oscar Pettiford on Bass & Hall Overton on Piano, pasted picture sleeve. The sleeve shows remarkably little shelfwear with just a little light creasing at the corners & the vinyl remains excellent with just the odd light surface hairline to show for its fifty five years JLP1047).
