Here are a few items of interest we’re following over the next few days:
Jutta Hipp at the Hickory House Volume One, Blue Note 1515. This is an original pressing with the Lexington Avenue address, but it’s only in VG condition. The seller has a start price of about $200 and there are no bidders with a couple of days left. We’ve recently seen one of these sell for about $775 in better condition, of course, on the Jazz Collector Price Guide. One of the reasons we’re watching this: We have been going through our own collection deciding what to keep and what to sell. Some of the prices of the Blue Notes are higher than ever, so we’re considering dipping into the collection and picking out some choice items to post on eBay. This is one of the records we own, and we have a copy in extremely nice condition. If anyone out there wants to make an offer, we’re listening.
Here’s one of similar interest, for similar reasons:
Serge Chaloff, Blue Serge, Capitol 742. This one is in M- condition and it still has a couple of days to go. It features Sonny Clark on piano, and the Sonny Clark records have been selling for quite a premium. This one is at $100 with a couple more days to do. We’ll keep you posted on what happens with it.
