Gene Ammons All Star Sessions (aka Woofin & Tweetin)

LP (Item 43367) Prestige, Early 50s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 5

Nice nice album on Prestige, bringing together Jug's earlier sides in 2 different settings. The first batch has Ammons "battling" Sonny Stitt in a set of stuff that features hard twin tenors in the frontline, with the kind of cutting contests the two of them would perform live all over the country. Titles on that one include "Stringin The Jug", "New Blues Up & Down", and "You Can Depend On Me". The other side of the record features Ammons in one of those great Prestige open-ended groups – with crack players like Art Farmer, Lou Donaldson, and Freddie Redd – all soloing long and soulfully on two tracks – "Woofin & Tweetin" and "Juggernaut". (OJC pressing. Cover has remnants of a sticker on front and some pen on back.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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 ...

Les McCann sings on this set of short soul tracks with production by Bert DeCoteaux. As you may know, Les' voice is more about style than quality, but it sounds pretty groovy on a couple of the tracks here. He also plays electric piano on a number of cuts, including "Us" and "Butter ... LP, Vinyl record album
