Virgo Vibes (plus bonus tracks)

CD (Item 57105) Atlantic (UK), 1967 — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock


4.80 5

A great set of straight jazz from Roy, recorded for Atlantic, and with a feel that's a lot edgier than some of his other work from the time! The groups on the record feature some of the hippest soul jazz players of the time – including Charles Tolliver, Jack Wilson, Joe Henderson, Harold Land, and Reggie Workman – and the feel of the material is almost a precursor to the Strata East sound of the 70s. Tracks are long and spiritual – and titles include "Glow Flower", "Ayerloom", and Charles Tolliver's "The Ringer". Plus, this CD also features 2 bonus tracks – previously unissued – "Mine Royd" and "Number Seven"!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Prestige, 1970/1971. New Copy
A pair of funky killers from tenorist Gene Ammons! Black Cat is one of the great funky albums that Gene Ammons cut for Prestige at the start of the 70s – quite different than his earlier work for the label, and a very different showcase for his tenor genius! The whole lineup here is amazing ... CD
