LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 5

A rare pre-Blue Note gem from pianist Duke Pearson – originally recorded in 1961 for the short-lived Jazzline label! The set appears here in a short-lived 1969 incarnation from Prestige – issued, no doubt, to cash in on Pearson's growing fame at Blue Note – and the record's a good fit for the label, as it's got a tight, right, and in-the-pocket soul jazz energy that's really great! Pearson's leading a group that includes Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Pepper Adams on baritone, and the lesser-known Willie Wilson on trombone – a great player, but one who was mostly a friend of Pearson, and only ever made this one appearance on record! Tracks have a lively well-crafted sound – mixing modern and soul jazz idioms nicely – and titles include "Lex", "Blues For Alvina", "Apothegm", and "Minor Mishap". (Blue label pressing. Cover has a cutout hole.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

70's issue of one of the Donald Byrd/Pepper Adams sessions for the Warwick label, from the early 60's. The groove is nice and hard, with a very tight, very in-the-pocket sort of sound. A young Herbie Hancock plays piano, and he lays down solos that are a lot more daring, and with a lot more fire, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bitches Brew
Columbia, 1969. Very Good 2 LP Gatefold
One of the few cases in jazz where an oft-played classic still resonates with power! The record itself is a key cap to Miles Davis' already-groundbreaking years of the 60s – a bold step forward, not just for his nascent electric sound, but also for jazz in general – and the benchmark ...
