LP (Item 427080) Liberty, 1957 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 5

One of the hippest Red Norvo records ever – a rare outing for Liberty that features Buddy Collette on reeds, bringing in a new level of color to the Norvo group! Red's work on vibes is precise and nicely chromatic – often coming across in waves of sound on the mellower tracks, and with a poppingly melodic quality on the more upbeat ones. Other players include Dick Shreve on piano, Bill Douglass on drums, and either Curtis Counce or Joe Comfort on bass – and titles include "A Few Days After Xmas", "Tar Pit Blues", "Shreve-Port", "The Brushoff", and "Fifth Column". (Original Liberty blue label pressing, with deep groove. Vinyl has a couple of marks that play with light clicks. Cover has a split top seam, splitting on the other seams, some aging, and a couple of stains on the back.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Brothers Nash
Liberty, 1955. Very Good+
Features Ted Nash on a variety of saxes, and Dick on trombone – plus a group with Tony Rizzi on guitar, Jimmy Rowles on piano, Harry Babasin on bass, and Roy Harte on drums.

Feels So Good
Kudu, 1975. Very Good
An incredible batch of electric funk from Grover Washington Jr – easily one of his best albums ever! The record really picks up from the sweet CTI sound of the 70s – taking Bob James arrangements with a lot of space and electric keyboards, and letting Groover blow some wonderfully ...

Jaco Pastorius
Epic, 1976. Very Good+
This is the one that really nailed it for Jaco Pastorious – a brilliant showcase for all his many talents on the bass, and a key illustration of the way that he influenced an entire generation! Sure, Jaco in Weather Report was already pretty darn great – but here, on his own, he really ... LP, Vinyl record album
Boss Soul!
Prestige, 1966. Very Good
One of Gene Ammons' classics from the 60s, and a straight ahead session of soul jazz tenor and piano, with drums by Art Taylor and a bit of extra conga from Ray Barretto. Nice rolling 60's soul jazz groove, and some nice piano comping behind Jug by Patti Brown and Walter Bishop Jr. Tracks include ... LP, Vinyl record album
Big Sound
Prestige, Mid 50s. Good+
Classic Jug, playing in a laidback open-ended blowing session, with other strong Prestige players – like Coltrane, Jerome Richardson, Paul Quinichette, Art Taylor, and Mal Waldron, who always seems to be the driving force between most Prestige sides like this. The album has only 4 tracks, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Hangin' Out
Prestige, 1972. Very Good
No hangin out here – because these guys are tighter than ever, and right on the money from the very first note of the set! A snapping drum break opens up the album – followed by a wickedly stepping bassline, a rolling conga part, and a vamping dance between Hammond and tenor sax – ... LP, Vinyl record album
