LP (Item 6438) Blue Note, Late 50s — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 5

One of the best hard-wailing all-star sessions that Jimmy did so well for Blue Note! The album features an amazing array of top-line players – like Tina Brooks, Lee Morgan, Curtis Fuller, Lou Donaldson, Art Blakey, and Kenny Burrell – and they all play with Smith in differing combinations, all of which have an open-ended groove that sounds very nice, and very much like the kind of material that Smith would have laid down at some small club in the late 50s. Titles include "Blues After All", "Au Private", and "Lover Man". (80s DMM pressing.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Blue Note, Late 50s. Near Mint-
Bud plays live at Birdland with Sam Jones and Philly Joe Jones. The album's got almost a soul jazz feel in parts, perhaps due to the backing by Jones and Jones. Powell hits lots of soulful changes while running around in firey solos, and Jones' bass slams behind him in round warm lines. Tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album

Grass Is Greener
Atlantic, 1967. Very Good-
A sweet soulful set from drummer Grasella Oliphant – one of two legendary albums cut for Atlantic Records in the 60s – and the one with a very heavy-hitting lineup! The vibe here is somewhere between Blue Note Hammond dates and soul jazz on Prestige Records in the mid 60s – as ... LP, Vinyl record album
