Item Description

Up for auction is Blue Note 4034: Lee Morgan's Leeway, featuring Morgan on trumpet, Jackie McLean on alto, Bobby Timmons on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Art Blakey on drums. This is a copy from the collection of an ex-radio DJ from New York, this is an original mono with the47 WEST 63rd - NYCaddress, the RVG and "ear" stamped in the dead wax, and deep grooves on the label. It hasBLUE NOTE RECORDS INC., 43 West 61st St. New York 23on the back cover. All signs point to this being a first pressing.This album was recorded on April 28, 1960.

Sleeve; Ex-, with a glossy, bright NM front cover, no seam splits, no ringwear, but some staining on the bottom of the back cover. Includes anacquisitiondate of "April 10,1961" written by the DJ and a "review copy" stamp by Blue Note.

Record: NM-, comes with the original Blue Note inner sleeve, has some very minor scuffing on both sides from coming in and out of the sleeve. Very little spindle wear, perhaps played once per side.

I am a university professor of music here in the US who inherited this and other records (Blue Note, Norgran, Impulse!, Columbia, Prestige, Fantasy, Riverside, etc.) from a collector and former radio DJ 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.
