Live!

LP (Item 2530) Prestige, 1963 — Condition: Very Good
Just Sold Out!

LP, Vinyl record album

❔

A killer, and one of three live sides 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 tenor blows and hollers over the fingerpoppin' grooves delivered by a young George Benson on his first major guitar gig – and the soulful drums of Joe Dukes scatter across the place, taking the whole band into some incredible rhythms! Titles include cookin' live versions of "Rock Candy", "Sanctified Samba", "Undecided", and "A Real Goodun'".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Green label pressing. Cover has a split bottom seam.)

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.

Jack McDuff

Soul Circle
Prestige, 1968. Near Mint-
An excellent album of long jazzy grooves by Brother Jack McDuff – and one that has him really breaking past the tighter style of early years, into the long complicated modal style that graced his best later work. The material was most likely recorded earlier than the record's 1968 release ... LP, Vinyl record album

Richard Groove Holmes

Soul Message
Prestige, 1965. Very Good
A key album in the career of Richard Groove Holmes – his first session ever for Prestige Records, and the one that yielded the monster crossover hit version of "Misty"! The sound here is much leaner and cleaner than Groove in his Pacific Jazz years – a tight trio approach ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, Early 50s/1965. Very Good
Yipes! The MJQ must have freaked out when they saw the title to this one – especially since the record doesn't feature them playing especially for lovers, it's just a collection of their excellent early work for Prestige. The album features some of the group's great work with Kenny Clarke ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, 1960s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Our favorite side of Gene Ammons' talents – summed up nicely in a 2LP set! Ammons wasn't the first tenor player to work with a Hammond organ, but once the format gained popularity, Gene made a wise move to take it up – and it became a pairing that forever defined the later years of his ...

Gene Ammons

Big Sound
Prestige, Mid 50s. Very Good
Classic Jug, playing in a laidback open-ended blowing session, with other strong Prestige players – like Coltrane, Jerome Richardson, Paul Quinichette, Art Taylor, and Mal Waldron, who always seems to be the driving force between most Prestige sides like this. The album has only 4 tracks, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Willis Jackson

Neapolitan Nights
Prestige, 1963. Very Good
Moody set of tracks that has Willis' fat tenor sound fronting a little combo on a set of "Italian" standards like "Arrividerci Roma", "Volare", "Al Di La", plus the original "Verdi's Vonce". Bucky Pizzarelli's on guitar, to give the LP a "Neaop ... LP, Vinyl record album

Red Garland

Manteca
Prestige, 1958. Very Good
One of the best by Red Garland for Prestige – a totally cooking record that features some great added conga work from Ray Barretto! Ray's presence really helps the record live up to its Latin-styled title – and Garland's usual trio with Paul Chambers on bass and Art Taylor on drums ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, 1954/1955/1962. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A 70s double LP issue of a variety of sides Milt cut as a leader for Prestige and Riverside. The first batch of numbers were originally released as a couple of 10"s, then repackaged under various guises in LP format, and feature a slightly different take on the Modern Jazz Quartet sound of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Willis Jackson

Gator's Groove
Prestige, 1969. Near Mint-
A great lost session from Willis Jackson – 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 makes a good reappearance on guitar. Richard Landrum ... LP, Vinyl record album
Jazzland, 1961. Very Good
A killer set of grooves from vibes legend Johnny Lytle – one of the first and one of the few to ever combine vibes with Hammond organ – in this case, the work of Milt Harris on the keys! The group is a very rhythmic trio, thanks to Harris on the bass pedals, and Penny Hinant on the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Phil Woods with Michel Legrand and his Orchestra

Images
RCA, 1975. Very Good
A wonderful record – one in which Phil Woods blows alto solos over the arrangements of Michel Legrand – handled in the masterful style of Legrand's best jazzy soundtrack work, and in a way that lets Woods hit some of his best solos of the 70s! Legrand's always been great at this sort ... LP, Vinyl record album
Polydor, 1977. Very Good+
Seminal work from bassist Teruo Nakamura – one of the few Japanese fusion players of the 70s to make a bit of a splash over on this side of the Pacific, thanks to wickedly soulful work like this! Teruo's getting some great help here from a handful of American players – including the ... LP, Vinyl record album
