Giants Of The Funk Tenor Sax

LP (Item 81098) Prestige, 1960s — Condition: Used
2LP Gatefold
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 5

Our only complaint about this set is that Prestige only saw fit to make it 2 LPs long, and as most of all of you know just as well as we do, the Prestige catalog runs deep with funky hornsmen! Most of these cats and the tracks they did choose to include need little or no introduction form us, so we'll just let the selection do all the talking: Gene Ammons "Hittin' The Jug" & "Chicago Breakdown", Sonny Stitt with Jack McDuff "Nother Fu'ther", Rusty Bryant "Red Eye Special" & "Soul Liberation", Willis Jackson "This'll Get To Ya" & "Tu'gether", Houston Person "Chains Of Love" & "Goodness", Johnny Griffin "Wade In The Water" and Stanley Turrentine "Walkin'".

Columbia, 1969. Very Good+ 2 LP Gatefold
One of the few cases in jazz where an oft-played classic still resonates with power! The record itself is a key cap to Miles Davis' already-groundbreaking years of the 60s – a bold step forward, not just for his nascent electric sound, but also for jazz in general – and the benchmark ...

House Of David
Atlantic, 1967. Very Good+
One of David Newman's grooviest albums of the 60s – a stripped-down set that features a quartet with Hammond and guitar – all in a vibe that's a bit more relaxed than some of Newman's other sessions for Atlantic! There's a gritty edge to the record – with organ by the obscure ... LP, Vinyl record album
