A growling set of organ jazz tracks, played by Don with a tight trio that includes David Fathead Newman on flute and tenor. The set includes a great version of James Moody's amazing "Darben The Redd Foxx", plus the tracks "Head", "Mellow Soul", and "Hump Snapa Blues". One of Don Patterson's best! (Blue label pressing. Cover has a cutout hole, with a bit of sticker residue and some light stains.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Live At The Lighthouse
Prestige, 1972. Very Good+
A real killer from Earland! The record swings incredibly hard, with a tight jazzy groove that sounds like his early work for Prestige from the first few albums. The band includes lesser known players like trumpeter Elmer Coles, alto player James Vass, and conga player Kenneth Nash – but ... LP, Vinyl record album

Soul Summit (2nd cover)
Prestige, 1962. Very Good+
A definite soul summit for the time – with 3 top-shelf players in the lead, all getting plenty of room to do their thing!

Ramsey on his own is great enough at this point – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Having A Ball
Argo, 1963. Very Good
Although he's made many snoozy records in his time, the early Al Grey albums for Argo are pretty hard swingin', and have a lot of nice surprises. This one's got a very young Bobby Hutcherson on vibes, and the great Dave Burns on trumpet. Tracks are short, with a hard swingin' groove that's still ... LP, Vinyl record album

Prayer Meetin'
Blue Note, Early 60s. Very Good+
Jimmy Smith and Stanley Turrentine go head to head in a great little set for Blue Note – spare quartet grooving, with lots of room for soulful solos! Turrentine's simply great at this point – playing with a raspy edge on the bottom of his tone, sounding dark and mysterious – not ... LP, Vinyl record album
