Rojo

LP (Item 16261) Prestige, 1958 — Condition: Very Good+
Red Garland's really cooking on this late 50s set – thanks to some added conga work from Ray Barretto on most of the album's tracks – and that great little groove that Barretto's percussion brought to some other soul jazz cookers like this from the time! Garland still gets plenty of space to spin out in that lyrical style he did better than just about anyone else – and core trio rhythm support is from George Joyner on bass and Charlie Persip on drums, who burn nicely when Barretto sits out – although we're definitely partial to the more complicated grooves featured with Ray. Titles include "Rojo", "Mr. Wonderful", "We Kiss In A Shadow", "Darling Je Vous Aime Beaucoup", and the nice groover "Ralph J Gleason Blues".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Orange Status label pressing, with RVG stamp. Cover has a split spine & top seam, yellowed tape remnant on all seams, light surface wear and aging.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

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.

Jack McDuff

Live
Prestige, 1963. Very Good
A killer, and one of three live sides that Hammond organ genius Brother Jack McDuff cut for Prestige during the 60s – a monster session of stretched-out jazzy grooves, with many fine little dancers, and a raw soulful feel throughout! The group's one of Jack's best – as Red Holloway's ... 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

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

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

Bob James

One
CTI, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold
A landmark album – not only for Bob James, but for CTI and the Fender Rhodes as well! This is the album where all the magic starts – the first of many extremely successful albums that Bob recorded during the 70s under his own name, and almost the birthplace of the modern hip hop ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Coltrane

Love Supreme
Impulse, 1964. Near Mint- Gatefold
Maybe one of the greatest jazz albums of all time – a real breakthrough moment for the legendary John Coltrane, and the blueprint for generations of jazz records to come! Trane was already breaking down plenty of boundaries before Love Supreme – but he knocked it out of the park for ... LP, Vinyl record album

Clarke Boland Big Band

Now Hear Our Meanin'
Columbia, 1965. Very Good
One of the best-selling albums ever recorded by the Clark-Boland Big Band – a set of hard-searing tracks played by an all star group, capturing the ensemble at its finest! The album's got a few nicely open-ended tracks that really let the soloists take flight – and players include ... LP, Vinyl record album
