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". (Cover has two cutout holes.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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

Spring Rain
Black Jazz, 1971. Near Mint-
One of the few albums ever cut by reedman Rudolph Johnson – a hell of a saxophonist, and one with a great ability to combine the spiritual with the searing – a bit like Joe Farrell at his CTI best, but not as freewheeling – nicely focused, and a little bit funky in all the right ...
