Twister

LP (Item 24168) Prestige, Late 50s — Condition: Very Good

Classic blowing session material from Jug – with 4 long tracks that are all a superb example of how great Prestige could be when they wanted to! The group is filled with great players – Jackie McLean, Mal Waldron, Idrees Sulieman, and Kenny Burrell – and the band plays with a free easy groove that produces some beautiful solos, especially from Jug! Titles include "Cattin", "The Twister", "Four", and "Pennies From Heaven".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Yellow & black label NJ pressing, with deep groove and RVG etch. Vinyl plays with a short click on "Pennies From Heaven")

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.

Gene Ammons

Velvet Soul
Prestige, 1964. Very Good+
Classic mellow Jug – from a time when Prestige discovered that Gene Ammons would sell equally well to the mellow jazz crowd as to the jukebox jumpers. Most of the cuts feature Gene with a deep soulful tone that could qualify as "velvet", but which still has enough of a rough edge ... LP, Vinyl record album

Charles Earland

Living Black
Prestige, 1970. Very Good-
A stone cold live date from Charles Earland – recorded in Newark, at just the sort of club where he got his start! The tracks are quite long and openly grooving – even more so than Charles' killer studio sets from the time – and there's a bit of a harder edge here too, thanks ... LP, Vinyl record album
MPS/Prestige, 1967. Very Good+
A Prestige pressing of this rare German MPS session by Hampton Hawes – recorded in trio format with backing by two of Europe's best rhythm players, bassist Eberhard Weber and drummer Klaus Weiss – and in a groove that's really wonderful! There's a great tone to the record that's ... LP, Vinyl record album

George Wallington

Jazz For The Carriage Trade
Prestige, 1956. Near Mint-
Sublime work from pianist George Wallington – and one of his best albums ever! The set's also one of the few he ever recorded as a leader outside the trio format, and has him working with a very hip quintet that features Phil Woods, Donald Byrd, Teddy Kotick, and Art Taylor – all ...

Yusef Lateef

Yusef's Bag
Prestige, Late 50s/Early 60s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
One of those two-fers pulled from Prestige sides during the 70s, this one combining music from several different recordings featuring Yusef Lateef. The first LP of the set was originally issued as Soulnik under leader Doug Watkins' name. Although Watkins was one heck of a hardbop bassist in his ... LP, Vinyl record album

Freddie Roach

Mocha Motion
Prestige, 1967. Very Good+
One of Freddie's best ever albums – and a cool session that has a much more laid back, less hokey, and groovier feel than his Blue Note stuff. Freddie leads a trio that includes Vincent Corrao on guitar and Eddie Gladden on drums, and the group is augmented by Ralph Dorsey's conga. Freddie ... LP, Vinyl record album

James Moody

Moody's Workshop
Prestige, Mid 50s. Near Mint-
A great set from Moody, nice and edgey, with his genius firmly in place! Quincy Jones handled the arrangements, and the group swings in a variety of modes. Moody's on alto and tenor – no flute yet at this point – and highlights include "Workshop", a great number with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dexter Gordon

Ca'Purange
Prestige, 1973. Very Good
One of Dexter's best sessions from the 70s – and one that's got more soul, more power, and more ensemble playing than a lot of his other "soloist with European rhythm section" albums. The group's a great one – with Thad Jones, Hank Jones, and Louis Hayes laying down some very ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Lockjaw Davis/Coleman Hawkins/Arnett Cobb/Bu

Very Saxy (second cover)
Prestige, 1959. Near Mint-
The title's terrible, but the album's a great one – a really classic-styled jam session, of the sort that the Prestige label hardly ever recorded! The session features 4 tenor giants of slightly older vintage – Eddie Lockjaw Davis, Coleman Hawkins, Arnett Cobb, and Buddy Tate – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Paul Quinichette

For Basie
Prestige, 1957. Near Mint-
Smoking tenor sax from Paul Quinichette – heard here in a small group of Basie bandmates, but in a setting that also has all the players stretch out a lot more than usual! Tracks are a bit long, and in addition to Quinichette on tenor, the set also features Shad Collins on trumpet, Nat ... LP, Vinyl record album

Art Ensemble Of Chicago

Phase One (Prestige pressing)
Prestige, 1971/1973. Near Mint-
One of the headiest albums ever recorded by the Art Ensemble of Chicago – a brilliant mix of noise and silence that rivals some of the greatest genius of the 20th century avant composition! The album's lead track "Ohnedaruth" builds slowly with a variety of percussion – ... LP, Vinyl record album
