Black Feeling!

LP (Item 26448) Prestige, 1970 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 5

Johnny Hammond's hitting on all burners here – shaking off the heavier sound of his past, and stepping right into the best modes of the Prestige Records jazz funk years! The album's got a rock solid groove that's in the Bob Porter production vein for Prestige – tightly snapping rhythms at the bottom, with a simple no-nonsense groove that's usually plenty darn funky – and which seems to free all players into territory where they can really open up with their solos! Drums are from the mighty Bernard Purdie – and the rest of the lineup includes Rusty Bryant or Leo Johnson on tenor, Virgil Jones on trumpet, Wally Richardson on guitar, and Jimmy Lewis on Fender bass. Tracks are longish – and titles include "Johnny Hammond Boogaloo", "Black Feeling", "Kindra", and "Dig On It". (Blue label pressing.)  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

Prestige, 1961. Near Mint-
Compelling early work from trumpeter Don Ellis – and a set that's almost equally great for the presence of Jaki Byard on piano! The work's quite different than some of Ellis' other material – a bit more sharp and stark, and played by a group that includes Byard on piano, Al Francis on ... LP, Vinyl record album

CTI, 1975. Very Good Gatefold
A monster – and quite possibly one of the greatest Fender Rhodes albums of all time! Bob James is really at the height of his powers here – stepping out with a sound that's a lot smoother than some of his earlier work, yet in a groove that's never too slick or too overproduced – ...

CTI, 1971. Near Mint-
One of the moodiest sessions on CTI from the early days – and a landmark album that took George Benson from the funky jazz scene into the upper reaches of 70s jazz. The record was put together by Don Sebesky, and it's a lot more high concept than some of George's earlier work – and ... LP, Vinyl record album
