Keep On A Blowin

LP (Item 15051) Prestige, 1960 — Condition: Very Good
One of the key records that helped cement the role of tenorist Willis Jackson in the soul jazz scene of the 60s – a record that not only features some killer Hammond from Jack McDuff, but also plenty of guitar from the great Bill Jennings! Unlike some other McDuff sessions, there's bass on this one – plus conga work from Buck Clarke on one cut, who really keeps things kicking. Titles include "The Man I Love", "Blue Strollin", "A Smooth One", and "Keep On A Blowin".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono blue trident label pressing with RVG stamp. Cover has some wear with small splits on the top & bottom seam, surface wear & aging on the back.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Willis Jackson

Please Mr Jackson
Prestige, 1959. Very Good+
Smoking tenor work from the legendary Willis Jackson – and a key record in Jackson's transition from 50s R&B to 60s soul jazz! Willis gets some great help on the session from Jack McDuff on organ and Wild Bill Jennings on guitar – both of whom craft some rootsy grooves that further ... LP, Vinyl record album

Willis Jackson

Gator's Groove
Prestige, 1969. Near Mint-
A great lost session from tenorist Willis Jackson – who also plays his gator horn here – right up there with some of his best groovers of the 60s, and recorded with a nice little group of fresh players! The lesser-known organist Jackie Ivory is on the session, and Wild Bill Jennings ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, 1954. Near Mint-
Some of the best work ever from pianist Billy Taylor – and some of the earliest too! Taylor's 50s trio with Earl May and Percy Brice is augmented here by conga work by the great Candido – and this addition brings a lot of fire to the group, giving Taylor's normally safe style a harder ...

Jack McDuff & Gene Ammons

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. Very Good+
A pivotal album for Brother Jack McDuff – and one that has him cleaning the sound of his Hammond a bit – moving into the lean, clear tone that would dominate his work for most of the 60s! There's a great sense of focus here – one that moves past simple R&B-influenced organ ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, 1954. Very Good+
A slightly different issue of these great bop sides, originally issued on 10" and packaged under this title in a coupls of different LP formats, with Miles working with a quintet that includes Thelonious Monk, Milt Jackson, Percy Heath, and Kenny Clarke – on longer versions of "The ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Coltrane

Lush Life
Prestige, 1957/1958. Sealed
A beautiful little album from the young John Coltrane, and one that hides its strong sense of depth behind a familiar jazz standard used as a title! In some way, the record is almost experimental for the time – as side one features the tenor of Coltrane alongside just the bass of Earl May ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jazz Workshop/Prestige, 1948. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Two rare Charlie Parker albums in a single set! First up is Bird On 52nd Street – one of the more obscure Charlie Parker sessions of the 40s – at least in the original release! The material was recorded in 1948, on a home tape recorder, but not issued until after his death – ... LP, Vinyl record album

David Fathead Newman

Concrete Jungle
Prestige, 1978. Very Good+
Pretty laidback stuff from David Newman – but a nice record overall. The whole thing's arranged and produced by William Fischer, and it's got a soulful finish that works well with Newman's sweet-sounding horn. There's not really a lot of funk in the mix, but the album's got a solid approach ... LP, Vinyl record album

Boogaloo Joe Jones

What It Is
Prestige, Early 70s. Very Good
Killer funkiness from Boogaloo Joe Jones! Grover Washington Jr makes an incredible appearance here – sounding much harder and heavier than on some of his Kudu recordings – more of a gritty soul jazz player, working beautifully alongside the sharp guitar of Boogaloo Joe Jones, and the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1964. Near Mint-
An overlooked gem in the Dave Brubeck Columbia catalog – and a very hip set of "Eastern" tinged tracks! The album's theme is obvious from the title – as Dave pens a set of tracks reflecting his experiences on recent visits to Japan – but the sound and the style moves ... LP, Vinyl record album
