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". (Purple label pressing. Cover has some wear and a cutout hole.)  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Jazz Workshop/Prestige, 1948. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Two rare Charlie Parker albums in a single set! First up is Bird On 52nd Street – one of the more obscure Charlie Parker sessions of the 40s – at least in the original release!

Gene Ammons has some pretty hip friends here – a roster of talent that includes guest appearances by hornmen Cannonball Adderley, Dexter Gordon, and Nat Adderley on one long jam number – plus Hampton Hawes on electric piano on the entire set!

Boss Tenor
Prestige, 1960. Very Good-
A soul jazz classic from Gene Ammons – the kind of session that easy made him "boss" on tenor – with a tone and conception that few other players could touch! The set is done in a style that's laidback, but never too loose – bouncing along in that "with conga" ... 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 – ...

White Rabbit
CTI, 1971. Very Good+
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
