Jazz For The Jet Set

LP (Item 43980) Atlantic, 1966 — Condition: New Copy

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 5

A classic little album that's every bit as groovy as its cover – served up by vibist Dave Pike, and one of the first true expressions of his talents! The set's a standout early American date that predates Pike's later experiments for MPS – done in a great blend of soul jazz and some tighter Atlantic Records influences – all served up by a hip group of players that includes Billy Butler on guitar, Clark Terry and Marty Sheller on trumpets, and Grady Tate on drums – plus Herbie Hancock making a rare appearance on organ! There's a great little bounce to most numbers – not really funk, but a blend of soul instrumental and more contemporary jazz styles – in a way that takes a Blue Note groove more towards the jukebox audience. Titles include "When I'm Gone", "Devilette", "Sweet Tater Pie", "Blind Man Blind Man", and "Sunny".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Backlash
Atlantic, 1967. New Copy (reissue)
One of Freddie Hubbard's greatest records – a soaring bit of soulful modernism that's almost a precursor to 70s sounds on record labels like Black Jazz or Strata East!

Grass Is Greener
Atlantic, 1967. New Copy (reissue)
A sweet soulful set from drummer Grasella Oliphant – one of two legendary albums cut for Atlantic Records in the 60s – and the one with a very heavy-hitting lineup!
