EX: Light marks under bright light, almost NM-
Very clean pressing with excellent quiet stereo fidelity!
VG: Light wear; edge wear, all three seams are taped
Quintet: Lee Morgan, Clifford Jordan, Barry Harris, Bob Cranshaw & Louis Hayes
A great deal on a classic set - highly recommended!
AllMusic 4.0: Take Twelve was trumpeter Lee Morgan's only recording during an off-period that lasted from mid-1961 to late 1963. Morgan (who sounds in fine form) leads a quintet with tenor saxophonist Clifford Jordan, pianist Barry Harris, bassist Bob Cranshaw and drummer Louis Hayes through four of his originals, Jordan's "Little Spain," and the title cut, an Elmo Hope composition. The superior material uplifts the set from being a mere "blowing" date but it generally has the spontaneity of a jam session. It's one of Lee Morgan's lesser-known dates.
These are actual scans of the LP for sale
The scanner tends to over-emphasize ring wear and cover blemishes that are unobtrusive in plain sight.
