Red Alone ... LP Prestige/Moodsville, Early 60s. Near Mint- ...
Just Sold Out!
Pretty unusual work for the time – an album of solo piano tracks, played by Red, in an unfettered format that was rare enough for pianists, but even more so for those in the soul jazz end of the spectrum like Red. The tunes are almost all standards – done by Red in an impeccable manner ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

A few other tracks include tenor work, and the album features a core ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Dave Pike plays a jazz version of the score to the musical Oliver – but don't hold that against him, because this one's great, as great as any of Pike's best earl work, like Pike's Peak and Bossa Carnival! The tracks have a great approach that's sort of "soul jazz modal" – ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Everything's Mellow indeed – and that fact makes the record one of Terry's greatest from the 60s! The obscure session features Clark blowing in the laidback style of Prestige's Moodsville imprint – almost a swing-based, Verve-styled mode that makes for some really great tunes. Terry ...
