I come across a lot of sweet Jazz records thought I would rip some and share them in this thread. All rips will be from original pressings.
Today we start with Kenny Dorham "Una Mas (One More Time)" Recorded for Blue Note at Englewood Cliffs, NJ, April 1, 1963.
“Una Mas” is a testament to Dorham’s singular approach to mixing bossa and bop. His breathy articulations also add spice to an already infectious melody. This was Joe Henderson’s first recording session. Just shy of his 26th birthday and already mature in his conception, Joe would become one of Blue Note’s most celebrated mainstays. In the rhythm section are Herbie Hancock and Tony Williams, two future anchors of the Miles Davis Quintet. Handfuls of groove rise up from Hancock’s fervent and uncharacteristically soulful comping. The spirited cymbals of the 17-year-old Williams complete the package."
I picked up this record at the Buena Park record show a few weeks ago. It is a Original Mono 1st pressing released on Blue Note 4127. It has Van Gelder and the "ear" etched in the dead wax. It has a little static on playback The Vinyl is VG+ with a few slight surface marks no feelable scratches. The Cover is in Good + with some writing on the back.
