Funk You

LP (Item 24742) Prestige, 1969 — Condition: Very Good+

A very cooking set by this great 60s organist – and one that has him leading a 2-horn frontline that includes Sonny Stitt and Charles McPherson. Pat Martino's on guitar, and Patterson's longtime drummer Billy James plays with a nice free style. Lots of nice tracks – like "My Man String", "Funk In 3/4", "Ratio & Proportion", and "Little Angie".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Green label pressing. Label has a small bit of pencil, and back has a few very light, small notes – but this is a great copy overall.)

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.

Eddie Lockjaw Davis

Bacalao
Prestige, 1959. Very Good
A pretty rare one – and one of the best albums that Eddie Lockjaw Davis ever recorded! The album takes Eddie's usual trio with Shirley Scott on organ, and adds in some extra bongos and conga – by Luiz Perez and Ray Barretto, respectively – to create a Latinized version of soul ...

Eddie Lockjaw Davis Big Band

Stolen Moments (aka Trane Whistle)
Prestige, 1960/1970. Very Good
Don't pass this one up – even though this set is a 1970s repackaging of the album originally entitled Trane Whistle. Although lots of other albums by Eddie Lockjaw Davis are laidback quartet and quintet sessions, this one's got a stunning big band backing him up, and the sound is incredible. ...

Gene Ammons, Etta Jones, & Jack McDuff

Soul Summit Vol 2
Prestige, 1963. Very Good+

Tenorist Gene Ammons is the main star ... LP, Vinyl record album

Saying Something
Prestige, Late 50s. Very Good 2LP Gatefold

Gene Ammons

Boss Is Back!
Prestige, 1969. Very Good+
A great comeback for tenor legend Gene Ammons – not just in a musical sense, but also because Jug had spent most of the past few years in prison – as part of the usual trumped-up drug charges that were filed against musicians at the time! At the time of this album, Ammons had not ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Coltrane & Paul Quinichette

Cattin' With Coltrane & Quinichette
Prestige, 1957. Good
A great meeting of tenor sax talents old and young – as the up-and-coming John Coltrane plays alongside Paul "Vice Pres" Quinichette – in a classic Prestige session of well-blown saxophone work! The rhythm section on the album features Mal Waldron on piano, Julian Euell on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gene Ammons & Dexter Gordon

Chase
Prestige, 1971. Very Good+
Gritty live work from twin tenor giants Gene Ammons and Dexter Gordon – recorded in an open-ended style that's a bit like some of Gordon's famous early work on the Central Avenue scene in LA, or Ammons' famous live "battles" with Sonny Stitt! The date was recorded in Chicago at the ... LP, Vinyl record album

George Wallington

Our Delight
Prestige, 1950s/1980. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Truthfully we don't know what happened to George Wallington, but he was one of the bright lights on the early bebop scene. He didn't leave behind a whole lot of recordings, but this 2 LP set brings together selections from three hard to find Wallington sides from the 50s – George Wallington ... LP, Vinyl record album

Prestige, 1960s. Very Good
Slammin! Brother Jack McDuff is one of the greatest organ players of all time – and he's never better than when caught in a live setting, as you'll hear on this great set!

Johnny Lytle

Done It Again
Pacific Jazz, Late 60s. Very Good Gatefold
Very very very groovy stuff by this masterful jazz vibist, recorded with a sort of late 60s swingin' feel – but still very much in the pocket and warm as a summer breeze! Lytle has a pretty remarkable way of playing the vibes with speed and energy, yet the overall feel still has kind of a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ronnie Laws

Classic Masters
Capitol, 1984. Sealed
The best of Ronnie Laws' 70s material, plus a few new tracks as well – an album that definitely lives up to its Classic Masters title!
