More Updates For the Jazz Collector Price Guide

I’ve been spending time this weekend updating the Jazz Collector Price Guide and realized there are a bunch more interesting items we’ve mentioned here but haven’t followed up, so here are a few of them:

George Wallington, Jazz For the Carriage Trade, Prestige 7032. This was an original New York pressing with a record in M- condition and a nice shiny cover in VG++ condition. It sold for $395.

Sonny Criss Plays Cole Porter, Imperial 9024. This looked to be an original pressing in M- condition for both the record and the cover. It sold for $350.99.

Lou Donaldson, Swing and Soul, Blue Note 1566. This was one of the recent records sold by the Jazz Record Center. It was in M- condition for both the record and the cover and it sold for $544.44.

From that same auction were these:

The Wes Montgomery Trio, Riverside 310. This was an original pressing in M- condition and sold for $305, the highest price we’ve seen for this record.

Sonny Clark, Leapin’ and Lopin’, Blue Note 4091. This was an original pressing also in M- condition. It sold for $430. Dexter Gordon, One Flight Up, Blue Note 4175. This was an original pressing that sold for $342. Finally, there was Kenny Drew, Undercurrent, Blue Note 4059. This was the ostensible second pressing with the deep groove on side one only. This was in M- condition and sold for $1,202.77.


  • It’s interesting to see, that the Blue Notes didn’t fetch the high prices I’d thought of. The Donaldson LP is one of his finer moments and the Clark is undoubtedly one of his best works. The record itself is quite rare in that condition.
    I still have the 1k “No room for squares” in mind and I just can wonder…

  • Btw, it’s so nice to have all these new postings frequently. Thank you so much. This is a “lonely island website”!!

  • Thanks, Katharsis. Glad to be back posting more frequently. Not sure what a lonely island website is, but it sounds good.

  • Al
    I can’t remember did I e-mail you the Percy album is on Folkways

  • Al, you’re very welcome. With “lonely island website” I meant, that your site would be perfectly suitable, if I could check just one website, while stranded on a lonely island. 😉
