The title's a bit of a mouthful, but a good description of the way Cannonball was presented in the years before his soul jazz groove firmly kicked in!

✨✧ Gene AmmonsNothin' But Soul (Up Front) ... LP
Winley/Up Front, Early 60s/Early 70s. Very Good ... $1.99
Very nice record, and one of the rarer sides by Gene Ammons. We can't remember the exact story behind this, but we know that the material was recorded by Jug during the early 60's, when he was violating his contractual agreements with a number of labels, and recording sessions for just about ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gene AmmonsSock! ... LP
Prestige, 1965. Very Good+ ... $6.99
A striking title – and a strong set of grooves, even if the tracks were pulled from a variety of different sessions, and not recorded as a unified album. Jug plays tenor on all cuts – working in formats that range from a Mal Waldron led trio to larger honking groups with horn players ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gene AmmonsSoulful Moods Of Gene Ammons ... LP
Moodsville, Early 60s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Beautiful beautiful work from tenorist Gene Ammons – and an album that really demonstrates that during the 60s, one of Ammons' strongest suits was his work with a mellow tune or ballad! The tracks here are wonderfully laidback, but never sleepy – very soulful, and solidly put together ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Prestige, Early 50s. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Nice nice album on Prestige, bringing together Jug's earlier sides in 2 different settings. The first batch has Ammons "battling" Sonny Stitt in a set of stuff that features hard twin tenors in the frontline, with the kind of cutting contests the two of them would perform live all over ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Gene Ammons & Dexter GordonChase! ... LP
Prestige, 1971. Very Good ... $7.99
Gritty live work from twin tenor giants Gene Ammons and Dexter Gordon – recorded in an open-ended style that's a bit like some of Gordon's famous early work on the Central Avenue scene in LA, or Ammons' famous live "battles" with Sonny Stitt! The date was recorded in Chicago at the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Gene Ammons & His All StarsGroove Blues ... LP
Prestige, Late 50s. Sealed ... $18.99
One of the tasty blowing session albums that Jug cut for Prestige – remarkable in the quality of the players (Coltrane, Mal Waldron, Pepper Adams, and others), and in the relaxed easy groove of the solid soulful tracks. There's 4 long cuts, and they all swing nicely nicely nicely! Titles ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Gene Ammons & James MoodyChicago Concert ... LP
Prestige, 1971. Very Good ... $1.99
Late great work from Ammons – an album done at the time of his funk sides for Prestige, but recorded in the style of his earlier years in Chicago! The session's a laidback set of soulful solo-heavy work – recorded as part of a hip series of shows at the North Park Hotel, with a local ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A nice little album – featuring some of the sides that Gene Ammons cut "off contract" for Chess/Argo during the early 60s, and ones that feature him paired with Sonny Stitt, his longtime partner in legendary tenor battles from the 50s.

A nice little 2-fer collecting two great meetings of two greats!

Prestige, 1961/1968. Very Good ... $5.99
Nothing fancy – but some great straight-ahead blowing from Stitt and Jug! The album's a quintet session, with John Houston piano, Buster Williams bass, and George Brown drums providing all the rhythm. But the real focus is on the twin-sax frontline – with Sitt taking up the alto on a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Nice and rarely seen trio side from under-recorded Chicago pianist Anderson.
