Giants Of The Funk Tenor Sax

LP (Item 81098) Prestige, 1960s — Condition: Used
2LP Gatefold
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 5

Our only complaint about this set is that Prestige only saw fit to make it 2 LPs long, and as most of all of you know just as well as we do, the Prestige catalog runs deep with funky hornsmen! Most of these cats and the tracks they did choose to include need little or no introduction form us, so we'll just let the selection do all the talking: Gene Ammons "Hittin' The Jug" & "Chicago Breakdown", Sonny Stitt with Jack McDuff "Nother Fu'ther", Rusty Bryant "Red Eye Special" & "Soul Liberation", Willis Jackson "This'll Get To Ya" & "Tu'gether", Houston Person "Chains Of Love" & "Goodness", Johnny Griffin "Wade In The Water" and Stanley Turrentine "Walkin'".

Spring Rain
Black Jazz, 1971. Near Mint-
One of the few albums ever cut by reedman Rudolph Johnson – a hell of a saxophonist, and one with a great ability to combine the spiritual with the searing – a bit like Joe Farrell at his CTI best, but not as freewheeling – nicely focused, and a little bit funky in all the right ...

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
