Wheelin (Dealers/Wheelin & Dealin)

LP (Item 73184) Prestige, 1957 — Condition: Used
2LP Gatefold
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 5

A 2LP set that expands on tunes originally issued on the Coltrane/Mal Waldron albums The Dealers and Wheelin & Dealin – both featuring material recorded in 1957, with Coltrane on tenor, and a rhythm section that features Waldron, Doug Watkins, and Art Taylor. The tracks are open-ended and very much in the blowing session mode that Waldron perfected for Prestige – solidly rhythmic, and quite cohesive, yet also very open-handed in the way that each player is allowed space for solo expression. Paul Quinichette and Frank Wess perform on 3 sides of the set, and the last one features Jackie McLean and Bill Hardman taking their place. Includes 2 takes each of "Wheelin" and "Dealin", plus "Blue Calypso", "Falling In Love With Love", "Robbin's Nest", and "Things Ain't What They Used To Be".

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

Infant Eyes
Muse, 1979. Very Good-
An overlooked Hammond slammer from Charles Earland – cut at a time when he was working on more electric keyboards for other labels. The set's a killer all the way through – very much in the best early 70s Prestige Records mode – with long tracks that really jam, and a lineup that ... LP, Vinyl record album
