Item Description

Up for auction is Grant Green's seminal Idle Moments with Joe Henderson, Bobby Hutcherson, Duke Pearson, Bob Cranshaw, and Al Harewood, available on the original Blue Note MONO release BLP 4154 from 1964. Label states New York USA, has the "ear" or P etched into the dead wax, and states "Van Gelder" on both sides stamped into the dead wax.


Interestingly, this was recorded in Joe Henderson's first year with Blue Note and is probably within the first 10 sessions he played there!


Sleeve: EX+, with no ringwear, no dog-ears, no seam splits, and a small tear in the bottom of the front cover, a "review copy" stamp on the back cover, some writing in blue ink next to the tracks, as well as slight discoloration on the white bottom of the back. Back cover has the 43 W 61 St, New York 23 address.


Record: side 1 - NM, with two very light needle trails that do not affect playback; side 2 - NM, with a few very light scuffs from coming out of the sleeve and one tiny pressing fault (tiny, think pin-tip, raised bump) in the second track. Quite possible that the second side was never played.


Overall a beautiful copy of this beautiful album.


I am a university professor of music here in the US who inherited this and other records from a collector a few years back. I am looking to sell off some of these records to collectors/audiophiles who can get more enjoyment out of them than I can.
Thanks for looking.
