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

Tell It
Prestige, 1967. Very Good
A killer from the 60s years of tenorist Willis Jackson – a time when the older R&B player was really rising to the top – thanks to the sort of smoking soul jazz setting that a record like this could provide! The whole thing's great – very much in the Groove Holmes or Jack ... 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

Eddie Lockjaw Davis

Goin To The Meeting
Prestige, 1962. Very Good+
A great one – and one of the rarest Prestige dates from Eddie Lockjaw Davis!

Sonny Rollins

Taking Care Of Business
Prestige/Milestone, 1955. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Early bop work by Sonny Rollins – from his Prestige years!

Prestige, Late 50s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A great collection – one that features a side of material from the album Soul, with piano by Ray Bryant; and another side of a set recorded with the Red Garland Trio.

Prestige, Early 50s. Very Good
One of modern vibes genius Teddy Charles' beautiful haunting albums – full of dark, edgey, playing, augmented by Bob Brookmeyer's contemplative piano and trombone. The deep end of this record is amazing, and the tracks are long, slow, and moody – with odd twists and turns that are a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jon Eardley

Jon Eardley Seven
Prestige, 1956. Very Good
A rare session as a leader for trumpeter Jon Eardley – a strong 50s player in Gerry Mulligan's group, one with a tone that is both cool and modern, but also able to move deftly in bop circles! This set features a septet (as might be expected by the title) – with players that include ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, 1955. Sealed
A touch of Billy Taylor, but that's more than enough – as his trio here can pack plenty into just a very short space!

Prestige, 1961. Near Mint-
This is volume 3 of Prestige's set of European recordings by Dolphy, some of the last he would make before he passed away at a very young age.

Prestige, 1957. Near Mint-
A seminal set from the young Miles Davis – working here on one of his legendary pairings with tenorist John Coltrane, who's equally important to the sound of the session as Miles!

Prestige/New Jazz, 1960. Near Mint-
Eric Dolphy's second album as a leader – and already a bold step forward from the first!

Featuring great work by Candido on a number of the tracks, most of which are great calypso-sounding cuts, which give Candido a lot of room to solo. Tracks include "Push De Button", "Savanna", "Ain't It The Truth" and "Napoleon". LP, Vinyl record album
