Grassella Oliphant — Grass Is Greener ... LP 9.99

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 Grasella leads a totally great group with John Patton on Hammond, Grant Green on guitar, and Harold Ousley on tenor – making a really great appearance here, and having us wish he did more dates like this! Clark Terry's also on the set to punch things up on trumpet and flugelhorn – and titles include a killer break version of "Get Out Of My Life Woman", with some very tasty drums – plus "Cantaloupe Woman, "The Yodel", "The Latter Days", "Rapid Shave", and "Soul Woman". (Red & purple label pressing. Cover has a cutout hole, a small split on the bottom seam, some peeling at the top, and some marker and ink stamps on the back. Label has a sticker.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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

Flying Dutchman, 1972. Very Good Gatefold
One of the few albums ever cut by saxophonist Harold Alexander – and a nice little live date that has the leader really stretching out on soprano sax and flute!
