Twisting The Jug

LP (Item 44267) Prestige, 1961 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 5

Despite the title, the set's not a batch of cheapo "twist" tracks – and is instead a great soul jazz set, with added conga work by Ray Barretto to make the tracks dance lightly, perhaps in a manner that Prestige thought would pass for a "twist". The tracks are longish and laidback – and the group features Jack McDuff on organ, working here on a very early set for the label, plus Joe Newman trumpet, Wendell Marshall bass, Walter Perkins drums, and Ray Barretto conga. Tracks include "Twistin The Jug", "Moten Swing", "Down The Line", and "Born To Be Blue". (Silver & black label pressing with a NJ address & Van Gelder stamp.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
