We’re watching the latest auction of jazz vinyl from the Jazz Record Center, which closes in a few days. Here are some of the highlights:
Sonny Rollins, Saxophone Colossus, Prestige 7079. This is an original New York pressing that looks to be in M- condition for both the record and the cover. This one is in the $900 range. I am happy to say, I recently purchased a near mint New York copy of Colossus in the Irving Kalus collection, which I will be writing about as soon as I get a chance.
Hank Mobley Quintet, Blue Note 1550. This is an original pressing in beautiful M- condition for both the record and the cover. This price is already more than $1,800 and at the rate it is going you would expect that it may even top $3,000.
Kenny Burrell, Blue Notes Volume 1, Blue Note 1596. This is an original pressing and of course it has the Andy Warhol cover. This one is also in beautiful condition and is currently at $500. I’d expect this do break into the $1,000 bin, wouldn’t you?
A couple more:
John Coltrane, Lush Life, Prestige 7188. This is an original New Jersey yellow label pressing and is in M- condition for both the record and the cover. Great record. The bidding starts at $150 and so far there are no bidders. That should change before the auction closes.
Miles Davis, Kind of Blue, Columbia 8163. This is an original deep groove stereo review copy with the white label. It is also in M- condition for the record and the cover. The bidding has already topped $400.
