LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 5

One of those 70s two-fers where Prestige went back and decided dicing up all those sessions in the 50s and 60s didn't make as much sense as issuing them as the way they went down. As such, this set collects work from one long blowing session, which eventually saw the light of day as two separate albums, Soul Junction and All Morning Long. The sides are a great meeting point between 50s hard bop and some of the looser, earthier styles that were beginning to show up in the first years of soul jazz! Red Garland works here with a super solid quintet featuring John Coltrane and Donald Byrd in the front plus Art Taylor and Jamil Nasser in the rhythm section. 8 numbers in all, including the very lengthy "Soul Junction" and "All Morning Long", plus "Woody'N You", "Birk's Works", "I've Got It Bad", "They Can't Take That Away FromMe", "Our Delight" and "Hallelujah". (Cover has light ring & edge wear.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Vee Jay, Early 60s. Very Good
Very nice, very tight little bossa nova set by Eddie Harris from his early days at Vee Jay! The groove is very open, and Eddie's still at the stage where he can really cut the stuff. His solos ring out hard and cold above some great Lalo Schifrin arrangements, and Lalo also plays piano on the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Merl Saunders
Fantasy, 1974. Near Mint-
We have to admit we've always been somewhat dismissive of Merl Saunders 70s records, perhaps because of the hippy association we have with these bay area recordings. But ultimately there's at least a little bit of funk peeking through on any of his Fantasy recordings, which gets a nice helping ... LP, Vinyl record album
