Gene AmmonsJug ... LP
Prestige, 1961. Very Good ... $4.99
A real turning point in the career of Gene Ammons – a record that almost returns Ammons to his earthier roots, and in the process helps build up a whole new sound in soul jazz for the 60s! The "Jug" nickname in the title is kind of a joking way to help Ammons stand alongside "M ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A double LP set pulled together in the mid 70s of Jug's bluesy bop sides cut in the late 40s for Mercury. Sidemen include Junior Mance, Albert Ammons, Israel Crosby, Gene Wright and lesser known Chicago locals like Wes Landers, Leo Blevins, Jess Miller and Ernest McDonald. As you'd expect the ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Gene AmmonsJust Jug ... LP
Argo, Early 60s. Very Good+ ... $9.99
One of those shady little sessions that Gene Ammons cut for Argo when he wasn't supposed to be recording for anyone but Prestige – and a great album that never got full circulation because of contract difficulties. The group on the album features organist Eddie Buster, who'd backed Jug or ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Gene AmmonsLate Hour Special ... LP
Prestige, 1964. Sealed ... $19.99
Very nice album by Jug that often gets overlooked because it's comprised of 2 different sessions, and can't get the "historical" writeup of being a single significant moment in the studio. Some tracks – including "Lascivious" and "Soft Winds" – are with a ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Gene AmmonsNothin' But Soul (Up Front) ... LP
Winley/Up Front, Early 60s/Early 70s. Very Good+ ... $0.99
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 AmmonsVelvet Soul ... LP
Prestige, 1964. Very Good+ ... $6.99
Classic mellow Jug – from a time when Prestige discovered that Gene Ammons would sell equally well to the mellow jazz crowd as to the jukebox jumpers. Most of the cuts feature Gene with a deep soulful tone that could qualify as "velvet", but which still has enough of a rough edge ... 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. Very Good ... $14.99
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 ... $2.99
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

Argo, 1961. Very Good+ ... $14.99
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

Chess, Early 60s. Very Good- ... $1.99
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. The two horns aren't really locked in combat ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A nice little 2-fer collecting two great meetings of two greats! Jug and Stitt go head to head on Boss Tenors, a classic album of tracks that perfectly captures the joy and fury of their live performances from years before! The record was cut in Chicago with a very hard rhythm section that ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

Prestige, 1976. Very Good+ ... $3.99
1973 recording that would become the last that Jug and Stitt did before Jug's untimely death in the mid 70's. Duke Pearson produced it (even though it wasn't for Blue Note), and the group includes Junior Mance on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and either Mickey Roker or Ajaramu on drums.

A definite soul summit for the time – with 3 top-shelf players in the lead, all getting plenty of room to do their thing!

A great set that brings together some great lost material that was originally recorded for Chess (or Aristocrat as it was called back then), and which was only ever released on 78s.

Jazzland, 1961. Very Good ... $19.99
Nice and rarely seen trio side from under-recorded Chicago pianist Anderson.

One of the sweetest sets we've ever heard from the Chilean scene of the 70s – great work by a group who are heavy on electric piano and vibes, and who also have a hell of an alto saxophonist in the mix too! The music is funky jazz, but with some deeper spiritual currents too – never ... read more LP, Vinyl record album
