4.70 5

2 of Cedar Walton's funkier albums for Prestige, released back to back on one CD! Spectrum has a nice hard piano sound, and feautres some very tight grooves that sound as if they might have been lifted from a mid 60s Herbie Hancock Blue Note LP. Titles on that one include the groovy "Higgins Holler", plus "Jake's Milkshakes" and "Spectrum". The second album on the CD is the incredibly rare Electric Boogaloo Song, and it's got Walton playing some electric piano with a group that includes Blue Mitchell and Clifford Jordan (who also appear on Spectrum). Titles on that set include "The Electric Boogaloo Song", "Impressions Of Scandinavia", and "Ugetsu", which Walton wrote and performed when he was with the Jazz Messengers. Very nice stuff, and some rare material that we never see on wax!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

A long-overdue reissue – both of Cedar Walton's fusion albums for Columbia – back to back on a single CD! Animation is one of Cedar Walton's mid 70s funky jazz efforts – acoustic keys often traded for electric piano, grooving with a funky bigger band, almost in a Ramsey Lewis ... CD
Specialty/OJC, 1958. New Copy
CD...$3.99 11.98
A hip little album from Buddy Collette – one that's ostensibly based around the then-popular idea of a set of Paris-inspired tunes – but which comes off with a sound that's a lot deeper than you might expect! David Axelrod produced the set – it was one of his early projects for ... CD
Brother Red

Prestige (Germany), 1962. New Copy
The brain trust of soul jazz in the early 60s – led by tenorist Gene Ammons on both albums! Soul Summit Volume one features Ammons and Sonny Stitt on tenor, plus Jack McDuff on Hammond – a definite soul summit for the time – with 3 top-shelf players in the lead, all getting ... CD
Prestige, 1972. New Copy
CD...$4.99 18.98
2 sides of sweet electric grooving from Houston Person – records that feature his soulful tenor set in larger arrangements than on his earlier small combo Prestige sessions, in a mode that's a bit like some of the larger jazz sets coming out on CTI and Kudu at the time! Like Stanley ... CD
Trombone Jazz Samba/Samba Para Dos
Verve (Germany), 1962. New Copy
Pure genius throughout – two great albums on a single CD! Trombone Jazz Samba is an overlooked gem from Bob Brookmeyer – and a set that fits in strongly with the other Verve Records bossa nova albums of the 60s! Bob's the center star on valve trombone, but the record's awash in work ... CD
