Soulful Moods Of Gene Ammons

LP (Item 20936) Moodsville, Early 60s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 5

Beautiful beautiful work from tenorist Gene Ammons – and an album that really demonstrates that during the 60s, one of Ammons' strongest suits was his work with a mellow tune or ballad! The tracks here are wonderfully laidback, but never sleepy – very soulful, and solidly put together in that Ammons-made gentle-blown way – using just a few notes to send the message out with a powerful punch, without ever overdoing things the way that a few of his tenor contemporaries might be tempted to do! The group's a great fit too – with the lovely Patti Brown on piano, plus bass from George Duvivier and bass from Ed Shaughnessy – and titles include "Two Different Worlds", "Skylark", "Three Little Words", "Street Of Dreams", and "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To". (Green label Moodsville pressing. Cover has a name written on marker on the front, some splitting on the seam, and several pieces of tape along the edges.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Prestige, 1973. Very Good+
Amazing stuff from Ivan Boogaloo Joe Jones!

Aura, Early 60s. Very Good-
Killer stuff! This is one of Billy's earliest albums, and it's a monster batch of funky organ tunes with a much harder groove than on later works! The group is Billy's early Delegates trio – with Hank Swarn on guitar and Mel Brown on drums – and bad, bad grooves abound: including the ... LP, Vinyl record album
