Soul/Jazz Giants – Unissued Material

LP (Item 27991) Prestige, 1960s/1970 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.60 5

A nice compilation of tracks issued by Prestige at the end of the 60s – and pulled from unreleased sessions cut earlier in the decade. Most of the material has an early 60s soul jazz groove to it – and there's some nice bits by strong players on the label. Willis Jackson and Wally Richardson groove on "Something Private", Jack McDuff and Red Holloway lay down "Redwood City", Blue Mitchell and McDuff take the "9:20 Special", and Gene Ammons and Clarence Sleepy Anderson play versions of "I Can't Stop Loving You" and "My Babe".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Merl Saunders
Fantasy, 1974. Near Mint-
We have to admit we've always been somewhat dismissive of Merl Saunders 70s records, perhaps because of the hippy association we have with these bay area recordings. But ultimately there's at least a little bit of funk peeking through on any of his Fantasy recordings, which gets a nice helping ... LP, Vinyl record album
