Blue Duke.Japan: Baystate, 1983 Stock Code: 144623
First pressing, signed by Jordan in full in black marker pen on the front cover. "This trio set by pianist Duke Jordan (with bassist Harry Memmery and drummer James Martin) differs from his usual recordings in putting an emphasis on blues, although not exclusively. Jordan performs six of his originals (including "No Problem," "Ben Sugar Blues," "Jordu" and "From Duke to Duke") plus "All the Things You Are," "C Jam Blues" and "St. Louis Blues." The classic bebop pianist's consistency holds up on this set (cut when he was 61), making the obscure LP worth searching for" (Scott Yanow for AllMusic). The attractive cover art is by Munehiro Uchimichi, who has executed some fine work for a number of labels, including Sony, JVC and Mercury.
12-inch vinyl LP (Baystate RJL-8060) new plain paper sleeve (original sleeve and separate Japanese liner notes also present), original gatefold album cover.
Some shelf wear, general signs of handling, a few old stains, spine toned and partially split; disc in excellent condition.
