eBaying This Week: JR,Trane and More

Another week, another 7,000 or so jazz records on eBay. Here are some of the ones we’ll be watching for you at Jazz Collector:

As noted, the lovely bobdjukic is back with a lot of superbly hyped records, including: J.R. Monterose, Blue Note 1536. This looks clearly to be an original pressing and it is listed in VG+ condition for both the record and the cover. It closes at the end of the week and is already at $510. This will certainly be in the $1,000 bin soon. From the same seller, among others, is John Coltrane, Lush Life, Prestige 7188. I mention this because I have a friend looking for a nice original pressing of this record. This one looks to be in VG++ condition for the record and VG+ for the cover. It is now at $100. I’m sure you all know the great story behind this record, about the trio side which was only a trio side because Red Garland forgot to show up for the date.

This is from another seller: Lee Morgan, City Lights, Blue Note 1575. This one looks to be VG++ for the record and perhaps VG+ for the cover, although part of the top right corner is off. The current price is $485 and there are about three days left.

Kenny Dorham and the Jazz Prophets Volume 1, ABC Paramount 122. This is an original pressing that looks to be in M- condition for both the record and the cover. The current price is $228 and there is only one bidder.

Duke Jordan, Flight To Jordan, Blue Note 4046. This looks to be an original pressing. The record is in M- condition and the cover is VG+. The start price is $699 and there are no bidders, but still six days to go. We’ll keep an eye on it for you, as is our custom.


  • *cough*… Ehr… Al? I think you copied the link to the J.R. Monterose two times, because the Lee Morgan City Lights eBay link also redirects to the J.R. Monterose! 😉

  • Thank you Mattyman

  • I can’t get behind the bob dj you kick dude. Always seems to be a rat somewhere near those auctions. He could write a remark about his arse and get you to believe the scent was wild roses!
