LP (Item 19582) Prestige, 1963 — Condition: Very Good+

Fantastic sound from this famous team – a set that's maybe even rawer than some of theire previous records together – although all of them are pretty darn amazing! Rhythm is by Norman Simmons, Vic Sproles, and Ben Riley – and the album's actually a bit gutsier and more freewheeling than some of their earlier sets, the ones with a bit more Monk work. Titles include "What's Happening?", "63rd Street Theme", "Pull My Coat", and "Hey Jim!". (Blue label pressing, with RVG stamp. Cover has one very small mark from an old sticker, and a small bit of clear tape on the bottom seam, but this is a great copy overall.)  © 1996-2018, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Dig
Prestige, 1951. Good
A key early appearance on record by Sonny Rollins – recorded here with Miles Davis and Jackie McLean in the landmark Dig session! The album's the stuff that 50s bop dreams are made of – a session that has up-and-coming modernists working in the new freedom of the long playing record, ... LP, Vinyl record album
Brother Jug!
Prestige, 1970. Very Good
One of Jug's funkier albums from his time back out of the pen, and a tasty electric session with Billy Butler on guitar and Sonny Phillips on organ. Pretty Purdie plays drums, and he kicks it nice and lean on the great groover "Jungle Strut". The album also features a nice version of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, 1961. Very Good
Searing live work from Eric Dolphy – part of a series of recordings that set a whole new standard for live jazz recording! The record features Dolphy going even farther out than on his studio sides from the time – as the record features very long tracks performed by a crack group that ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sonny Boy
Prestige, 1956. Very Good
Frenetic bop work from Sonny Rollins – recorded in 1956 with an open-mouthed tone that's certainly less controlled than later years, but still no less compelling! Sonny races along some of these tracks like a train out of control – especially on "B Quick" and "B ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, Mid 50s/1963. Very Good
A 60s version of Miles' classic Dig album – repackaged as "Diggin" to make it fit with other sides from those years, like Cookin, Relaxin, etc. The album's about as classic as you can get from Miles' early years – and a startlingly great record that features Sonny Rollins on ...

... LP, Vinyl record album
Smokin'
Prestige, 1963. Very Good
The title's certainly right – as the set's a smoker of a record from the mighty Eddie Lockjaw Davis – really hitting his best groove here, and opening up on tunes that are even stronger than his classic Cookbook material! The group includes Shirley Scott on Hammond, and Jerome ... LP, Vinyl record album
Shout It Out
Prestige, 1977. Near Mint-
A pivotal record for Patrice Rushen – a set that has her really tightening things up from her previous Prestige albums – heading much more towards the focused soul-drenched grooves of her Elektra Records years! The set's a stunner – still very much with the hip, west coast funky ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, Early 50s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A 2LP set that brings together most of the material from the first three full-length albums by the Modern Jazz Quartet – all recorded at a time when the combo were first forging their famous sound! Most of the sides here are in contrast to the group's better-known Atlantic work, because the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Good Old Zoot
New Jazz/Prestige, 1950/1954/1963. Very Good+
A 60s compilation of some of Zoot's great work during the 10" days at Prestige – back when he was playing with a bit more fire than in some of his later work. Half the tracks are cut with a small group that includes Kenny Drew and Stu Williamson – and the other half are cut with a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Latin Kick
Fantasy, 1956. Very Good-
Excellent 50s Latin work from Cal Tjader – and a set that boasts some especially nice tenor from the legendary Brew Moore! Moore's sound here anchors the date nicely – bringing in a bit more of a bottom sound than usual for a Cal Tjader Latin date – really rooting the record with ... LP, Vinyl record album
Buck Clarke Sound
Argo, 1961. Very Good-
Fantastic! This amazing record is one of the best albums ever to be released by Argo in the sixties. The great Buck Clarke leads a soulful group of players from Washington, DC that includes the amazing Charles Hampton, who plays flute, alto, and piano – and who contributed most of the ...
