Caravan

LP (Item 48305) Riverside, 1962 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 5

A killer set from Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers – not a Blue Note album, but probably one of their best from the time that isn't! The group at this point are a sextet – a lineup that changed the way that Blakey grooved, with Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Wayne Shorter on tenor, Curtis Fuller on trombone, and Cedar Walton on piano. Tracks are long and open, with a bouncing lyrical groove that's more soaring than some of the heavy-hitting earlier albums, but no less pleasing – and possibly even a bit more soulful! Titles include "Sweet N Sour", "This Is For Albert", "Skylark", and "Thermo". (Turquoise label Orpheum Productions pressing. Cover has some wear.)  © 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
