RARE vinyl EP CECIL YOUNG QUARTET historic be-bop jazz concert in Seattle 1951
THIS AUCTION LOT CONSISTS OF: One scarce original 1951 vinyl "Concert of Cool Jazz" EP of the CECIL YOUNG QUARTET blowing the roof off of Seattle's Metropolitan Theater back in 1951. The Quartet was Seattle's first important mixed-race bebop jazz unit, and them getting a gig anywhere downtown in those racially segregated days was an historic event on its own. Recorded by a local enthusiast, the tapes were so good that Cincinnati's famous jazz & R&B label, KING RECORDS, stepped in and released the discs nationally. The music is NOT cool jazz, rather red-hot tunes including "Cecil's House Party Blues," "Rushin' On Home," and "Stompin' At The savoy."
CONDITION: vinyl = still glossy but with some visible scuffs: VG+ / jacket = split at top, original blue tape on spine is aging, original bottom blue taope has been reinforced with cellophane tape, pocked front surface has more wear than the back

SHIPPING & INSURANCE: [Note: eBay thinks that us sellers can ship a 78rpm disc for $4 and that is their automated estimate noted with this listing. But that figure is inaccurate.

Thanks in advance!] We pride ourselves on offering reasonable shipping fees and providing excellent packing and fast service. All items are carefully prepared for shipping with damage-resistant packaging materials. Insurance is an additional charge and is required on all sales over $50 within the United States. On items under $50, buyer assumes risk if you choose no insurance (which is recommended and available at a reasonable additional cost). We will only ship to the “confirmed address” listed in your PayPal account.
