Bully!

LP (Item 8574) Atlantic, 1966 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 5

The only Atlantic Records session from the Quartette Tres Bien – and a set that's got a bit more punch than some of their records for Decca! The groove here still features the compelling percussion/piano lineup of the combo – with Percy James on bongo and conga, Albert St James on drums, and Jeter Thompson on piano – and the playing has a strong focus on the piano work by Thompson, with a good mix of soul jazz and lyrical styles! Includes the original track "Bully", plus versions of "Work Song", "Caravan", "Three O'Clock In The Morning", and "I Never Knew". (White label promo. Cover is in decent shape.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Here It Is!
Decca, Mid 60s. Very Good-
The Quartette Tres Bien had a trademark piano/percussion/bass/conga sound that grooved nicely on their own material, and on their mellow covers of 60s pop and jazz standards. This nice mid-period Decca album by the group features some nice originals – like "Jamsine Eyes", "Trac ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy Giuffre 3
Atlantic, 1957. Very Good+
Groundbreaking trio work from the great Jimmy Giuffre – an album that cut loose both the piano and the drums – in a way that took Gerry Mulligan's earlier rhythm-less experiments with jazz, and pushed them one degree further! The group on the session features Giuffre on clarinet, tenor ... LP, Vinyl record album

Suite 16
Atlantic, 1970. Very Good+
A groundbreaking set from Yusef Lateef – one that mixes together a number of different soul jazz styles! In a way, Atlantic records tried to handle Yusef Lateef in the same way they did Roland Kirk – by creating recordings that either let him express himself strongly as an arch-modernis ...

Common Ground
Atlantic, 1960. Very Good+
A great little record, filled with loads of cross-cultural influences that make for one of the most exotic Herbie Mann albums of the 60s! The group's billed as the Afro-Jazz Sextet– but has a strong Latin vibe as well – a bit of an echo of the experiments Herbie Mann did with Latin ... LP, Vinyl record album

Heatin' System
Cadet, 1972. Good+ 2LP Gatefold
One of the most amazing, expansive albums ever recorded by Brother Jack McDuff – a session that we'd rank right up there with his classic Moon Rappin for Blue Note – and which has an equally stretched out feel! Although some of Jack's other albums for Cadet in the 70s have a bit more ... LP, Vinyl record album

Boss Men
Prestige, 1966. Very Good-
Nice cooker from Don, featuring a trio with Sonny Stitt on alto and Billy James on drums. The groove is that nice open-ended gutbucket style that Patterson was bringing to his Prestige sides of the time. There's rootsy soul jazz, but also a bit more freewheelingness than you'd expect – ... LP, Vinyl record album
