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.

Thing To Come By
Solid State, Late 60s. Near Mint- Gatefold
A real solid groover, and one that we passed up for many years, mistakenly, because the cover looks kind of boring! On the inside, though, the record's filled with lots of nice tasty tracks, and it's got a sinister bubbling under funky feel that's just great. Includes the monster cut "Charlot ...
