Cookin' Together

LP (Item 12191) Prestige, 1964 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


Groovy session that features this star tenorist of the Jack McDuff group as the leader, but which also has the same group backing him up – including McDuff on organ, George Benson on guitar, and Joe Dukes on drums. The set list has a good batch of originals, with the same sort of groove and strong sense of humor as the best McDuff recordings from the time. Tracks include "Brother Red", "No Tears", "Shout Brother", and "Something Funny". (Black label pressing. Cover has a light stain along the spine.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Midnight Sun
Prestige, 1967. Very Good
Hard to find McDuff album that features some great material recorded during the mid 60s, and not available elsewhere! The album features a setting that's mostly quartet material – with McDuff's classic group of Red Holloway, George Benson, and Joe Dukes, but on one track, they're backed by ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, 1954. Near Mint-
A nice little 10" LP – featuring Miles leading a great bop group on 2 long blowing tracks "The Man I Love" and "Bemsha Swing", recorded with an all-star group that features Milt Jackson, Thelonious Monk, Percy Heath, and Kenny Clarke. LP, Vinyl record album
Hip Twist
Prestige, 1961. Very Good+
Hip Twist indeed – as Shirley's joined here by husband Stanley Turrentine, whose tenor work on any Scott album always takes it to the next level! Stan's tone is still nice and raw here – blowing out some hard and soulful lines that are the perfect complement to Shirley's more composed ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, 1956. Good+
Gene Ammons in a mighty nice setting – working here in an open-ended jam session style that brings all his best live energy into play at the studio of Rudy Van Gelder! The set's got a crackle that really goes beyond the earlier, shorter bop recordings from Ammons – and a bit more ... LP, Vinyl record album
Soul Liberation
Prestige, 1970. Fair
Fantastic funky jazz from tenorman Rusty Bryant – one of the real standout titles in the classic early 70s Prestige jazz/funk years! Rusty leads a group that includes heavyweights like Charles Earland on organ, Virgil Jones on trumpet, Melvin Sparks on guitar, and Idris Muhammad on drums ... LP, Vinyl record album
Brother Jack Meets The Boss
Prestige, 1962. Near Mint-
A classic early set from Jack McDuff – and a record that's very much in his own hands, despite the presence of Gene Ammons as a co-leader! The group's more of a McDuff one than an Ammons ensemble – and features the great Joe Dukes on drums, Eddie Diehl on guitar, and Harold Vick on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, 1961. Fair
Classic set of European recordings – made by Dolphy in 1961, before the fateful 1964 European tour that would later claim his life. The group features Swedish piano giant Bent Axen, plus a rhythm section that includes Erik Moseholm on bass and Jorn Elniff on drums. Like most Dolphy ... LP, Vinyl record album
Out There
Prestige/New Jazz, 1960. Near Mint-
Eric Dolphy's second album as a leader – and already a bold step forward from the first! The format here changes from the more standard lineup of before – as Dolphy drops out other horn players, loses the piano, and brings the cello of Ron Carter into the frontline! Backing is by the ...

Travelin' Light
Prestige, 1964. Good
Kenny Burrell joins the trio of organist Shirley Scott for this sweet little album – a set that seems to burn a bit more than usual for Shirley, probably because of the cool-toned guitar lines from Kenny! The album's got the same laid back feel as other Scott albums of the time, but Burrell ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, Early 50s. Near Mint-
With Sonny Rollins on tenor and Jackie McLean on alto! Features "Dig", "Conception", and "It's Only A Paper Moon". LP, Vinyl record album
Southern Comfort
Prestige, 1962. Very Good-
A cool cooker from Frank Wess – one of his great early 60s albums for Prestige, most of which sparkle even more strongly than his 50s dates for Savoy! By this point in his career, Wess had a firm attachment to the flute, and he was also one of the more soulful soloists of the early 60s. ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, 1957. Fair
A seminal session from the team of Miles Davis & John Coltrane – not nearly as "cookin" (at least in a blowing session way) as you might guess from the title, but instead a beautiful example of the lyrically modern explorations the pair created together! Rhythm is by the trio ... LP, Vinyl record album
