KENNY DORHAM Quiet Kenny

Very rare and in demand original 1959 US 7-track deep groove mono vinyl LP on a purple New Jazz label with silver print, flat edge and 'RVG' stamper in the run-out. Also stars Tommy Flanagan on Piano, Paul Chambers on Bass and Arthur Taylor on Drums, for what was one of Dorham's greatest works outside of Blue Note. Pasted laminate picture sleeve NJLP8225

MILES DAVIS Bags' Groove

Rare 1959 UK Esquire issue of the classic 1954 7-track mono LP with flat edge and 'RVG' stamper, starring the modern jazz giants Sonny Rollins, Milt Jackson, Thelonious Monk, Horace Silver, Percy Heath & Kenny Clarke. The front laminated flipback sleeve is a design variant to the US Prestige issue. Despite a little edge wear, the sleeve is excellent and the vinyl looks barely played!

MILES DAVIS The Musings Of Miles

Hard to find 1955 UK 6-track mono LP, with Red Garland on Piano, Oscar Petteiford on Bass and Philly Joe Jones on Drums, released on Prestige in the US and here on Esquire in the UK on lovely heavyweight vinyl with very nice unique Esquire-only sleeve design. The sleeve is fully laminated with scalloped flipbacks, and shows some yellowing with age, however the vinyl is practically mint with pristine labels!

MILES DAVIS Birth Of The Cool

Incredibly rare original 1956 UK 11-track mono LP on the turquoise Capitol label, featuring early 1949 to early 1950 recording sessions that marked a turning point in jazz towards a more stylistic sound. Includes the masterful 'Move' and 'Boplicity'. The sleeve is fully laminated and in beautiful condition; the spine is immaculate, the scalloped flipbacks secure and the print  unblemished, with only the lightest signs of ringwear starting to show. The vinyl is near mint T762 

CANNONBALL ADDERLEY Somethin' Else

Rare and in demand original 1958 US 5-track deep groove mono vinyl LP, on a Blue Note label with 'West 63rd' address both sides, plus 'RVG' and 'ear' markings in the run-outs. One of many Blue Note classics, this one is a particular standout as it includes not only Cannonball's but some of Miles Davis' very best work, who appears here along with Hank Jones, Sam Jones & Art Blakey. 'Autumn Leaves' and 'Love For Sale' are among the most beautiful andcontemporary renditions ever recorded! Pasted laminate sleeve. A simply a must-own for the jazz fan BLP1595

SONNY ROLLINS Sonny Rollins Quintet

Rare 1957 UK 4-track mono 10" LP, with Kenny Dorham on trumpet, Elmo Hope piano, Percy Heath bass and Abdullah Buhaina drums. The 10" laminated flipback sleeve is a unique Esquire-only design, and has just onesmall blemish visible on the spine but is otherwise a solid excellent example. The vinyl is so clean, and really does look barely played. A gorgeous one previous owner copy for one lucky jazz cat!
