Yet Another Jazz Vinyl Porpourri
Here are updates on some of the jazz records we’ve been watching on eBay, starting with Piano Interpretations by Bud Powell, Norgran 1077. I was watching this because I’m getting the sense that Norgrans are being devalued a bit, but then I realized this was not an original pressing. Oh well. Watching it anyway. This one has the black label, whereas an original would have the yellow label. This one looked to be in VG++ condition for the record and VG+ for the cover. It sold for $79. It does have quite a lovely David Stone Martin cover.
Kenny Dorham and the Jazz Prophets Volume 1, ABC Paramount 122. Is it really necessary to label this is Volume 1, since there was never a Volume 2, 3, 4 or any other number? This one looked to be in VG+ condition for the record and VG+ for the cover. It sold for $364.
Sonny Clark Trio, Blue Note 1579. This is the one
with feelable marks that was graded in VG+ condition for the record and the cover. I had speculated that it might be worth a risk at the right price. I’m not sure $719 would have qualified as the right price for me, but it did for someone.
Bill Evans Trio, Sunday Night at the Village Vanguard, Riverside 9376. In perusing my own collection the other day, I realized I have two copies of this record, but neither is an original pressing. Both are Japanese pressings. This was an original stereo with the black label. That would have sufficed for me if I thought about bidding, which I didn’t. This one was probably in VG++ condition for the record and VG+ for the cover. Great record. This one sold for $141.50, which seems quite reasonable.
