A Little Clef, A Little Norgran, A Little DSM

Trying to get off Blue Note a little bit and infuse some variety to our posts. Yesterday we added some Prestige and New Jazz jazz vinyl to the Jazz Collector Price Guide, today let’s look at a few from the Norman Granz pantheon.

This one has a very pretty, simple cover design by David Stone Martin: A Recital By Tal Farlow, Norgran 1030. This was an original pressing with the yellow label and the trumpeter logo. The record was listed in M- condition and the cover was VG++. The price was $122.16.

This one also has a nice Stone Martin Cover: Anita O’Day, Collates, Clef 130. This was a 10-inch LP and it was listed in M- condition for both the vinyl and the cover. The price was a very reasonable $82.

Here’s another nice 10-inch LP:

Billie Holiday, Clef 118. This one also has a Stone Martin cover. The record was in VG++ condition and the cover was VG+. The price was $225.

  • It is hard not to become lyrical about this one: what a fantastic DSM cover, also the back with Granz’ liner photo of a joyful Tal.
    I always found that the length of this LP was too short (an SP!), some 33 minutes only.
    Aren’t the players gorgeous? Bob Gordon esp. standing out, as usual.
