Double Exposure

LP (Item 27450) Prestige, 1975 — Condition: Very Good

A lost chapter in the David Axelrod/Cannonball Adderley tradition – and one of Nat's best albums from the 70s! Nat's funky trumpet sits nicely in moody arrangements by David Axelrod and Jimmy Jones – and the group features electric piano by George Duke, plus guest playing by Cannonball Adderley, Hal Galper, and Johnny Watson. Includes a few cuts with vocals by Nat, done in a weird funky style that's vaguely similar to Eugene McDaniels. Titles include "Traffic", "Contant 19", "59 Go & Pass", "Quit It", "Watermelon Man", and "Song Of The Valez Diamond", which has some cool electronics! (Cover has a cut corner.)  © 1996-2018, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

That Healin' Feelin'
Prestige, 1968. Very Good
Great stuff from Groove – a tight, no-nonsense set of hard grooves featuring a quartet that includes Rusty Bryant, Billy Butler, and Herbie Lovelle.

Groover!
Prestige, 1968. Very Good-
A nice one from the days when Groove was playing with guitarist George Freeman! The core of the tracks on here feature a trio of Holmes, Freeman, and drummer Billy Jackson – and the trio knows how to cook nice and nicely, especially on the original cut "The Walrus", a groovy number ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, 1956. Very Good-
One of the classic early Miles Davis & John Coltrane sessions for Prestige – a well-crafted quintet album that shows Miles finding a stronger voice than ever, and Coltrane beginning to emerge as a key force on his own!

Together Again!
Prestige, 1965. Very Good-
A classic set of soul jazz tracks from Gator Tail and Brother Jack McDuff – recorded in a raw grooving style, very similar to that used on some of their live recordings from the same time. The core of the group features Bill Jennings on guitar and Wendell Marshall on bass, but some of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Out Of The Forrest
Prestige, 1961. Very Good
Great work from one of the most under-rated tenor players of the 60s! Jimmy Forrest was an excellent player who made only a handful of recordings at the time – but he blows with a deep confidence that should have made him one of the biggest new stars on the scene. This set's one of Jimmy's ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, Early 50s. Very Good-
Nice nice album on Prestige, bringing together Jug's earlier sides in 2 different settings. The first batch has Ammons "battling" Sonny Stitt in a set of stuff that features hard twin tenors in the frontline, with the kind of cutting contests the two of them would perform live all over ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sounds Of Yusef
Prestige, 1957. Very Good+
A beautifully haunting set by Yusef that marked his move to Prestige, and a sophistication of the Eastern-tinged jazz style that he developed during his years with Savoy. The tracks on here feature Yusef playing tenor, flute, and argol – with backing by a group of Detroit musicians that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Prestige, Late 40s/1950s/1960s. Very Good 2LP Gatefold
To look a the tracks on this collection you might ask yourself, "what were they thinking?" But as the notes mention, the set was pulled together to illustrate "the changes and consistencies in Moody's music over a period of twenty years". 14 tracks in all, including "Don't ...

Fat Albert Rotunda
Warner, 1969. Very Good-
The start of funky funky Herbie Hancock! This album's the first to feature Herbie really breaking away from his straight jazz work – moving into a groove that's nice and funky, using electric piano along with acoustic, to forge the sound that he'd develop famously over the 70s. The album's ... LP, Vinyl record album
