Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.90 5

A great little record – one of Houston's most successful for Prestige! The album follows strongly in that late 60s pre-funk mode that Prestige was cooking up – tight and groovy, with electric bass dropped into the mix, electrifying things a bit, but still really just grooving in a souped-up 60s soul jazz mode. Houston rises to the style wonderfully – and the rest of the group include Sonny Phillips on organ, Billy Butler on guitar, and Buddy Caldwell who throws in some great conga work! Includes a nice boogaloo cut called "Hey Driver!", with some chanted vocals by the band, plus the tracks "Hard Times" and "Jamilah", which have a very nice groove!

Different work than usual for Herbie – a series of sides recorded in Sweden in the late 50s, featuring Herbie on both flute and tenor! The feel here is at once more poised and more open than some of Herbie's US sides from the time – as the groups shift from track to track, and Herbie's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Prestige, Mid/Late 50s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
70's 2-fer that brings together 2 of Jackie McLean's classic bop albums for Prestige – Lights Out and 4, 5, & 6. The groups include Donald Byrd, Hank Mobley, Elmo Hope, and Mal Waldron. The tracks are longish, and McLean's tone is very raw, much rawer than on some of his Blue Note ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kind Of Blue
Columbia, 1959. Very Good+
What can we say? This is the ultimate Miles Davis album – the one that includes so many songs that we've heard way too much in Starbucks, in retail stores, or at a friend's house who claims to be a "jazz expert", but is really a yuppie dilettante. Yet somehow, over all the years, ... LP, Vinyl record album
