Flight to Denmark.Copenhagen and Tokyo: SteepleChase / Nippon Phonogram Co., Ltd., 1980 Stock Code: 144625
Signed by Jordan in black marker pen on the front cover, "Thank you - Duke Jordan". The pianist, whose work is "enlivened by a delightfully crisp touch and unexpected turns of phrase" (Brian Priestley in Jazz: The Rough Guide) had been away from the studio for many years before returning and recording initially for the Danish SteepleChase label.
Here he is accompanied by Ed Thigpen and Mads Vinding, who could be described as the SteepleChase house bassist, on a mix of standards and originals. The Penguin Guide describes his versions of "Here's That Rainy Day", "On Green Dolphin Street" and "How Deep is the Ocean" as "finely judged readings". First Japanese pressing, originally issued in Denmark in 1974.
12-inch vinyl LP (SteepleChase 15PJ-2002) new plain paper sleeve (original sleeve and separate Japanese liner notes also present), original album cover.
Without the original obi band. Spine abraded in several places, more noticeably at the foot, splash stains and general signs of handing, old tape repair to top edge, liner notes stained along one edge; disc in excellent condition.
