Double Exposure

LP (Item 27450) Prestige, 1975 — Condition: Used
(€- || £- || ¥-) (approx.)

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!

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.

Gil Evans & Ten
Prestige, 1957. Very Good+
Fantastic early work from Gil Evans – emerging here in this early session as an already far-thinking modernist. The tracks are shorter and less ambitious than some of Evans' work on Impulse, but the group is excellent – and even in a shorter format, the conception of the work still ... LP, Vinyl record album
Opus De Funk
Prestige, 1965. Very Good
Not funk, as the title might imply – but a set that's still plenty darn soulful overall – thanks to great Hammond from Johnny Smith, and some wicked vibes from the legendary Freddie McCoy! The set's one of the first Prestige sessions for McCoy – an artist who's never fully gotten ... LP, Vinyl record album
Woodlore
Prestige, 1955. Very Good+
Early work by one of the greatest voices on the alto sax in the 1950s – a player who worked with the deftness of other altoists of his generation, but a depth of soul usually reserved for the tenor! The setting is simple and perfect – as Phil Woods blows at the helm of a quartet that ... LP, Vinyl record album
How High The Moon
Prestige, Late 60s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold

Night Hawk
Prestige/Swingville, 1960. Very Good+
Beautiful late work from Coleman Hawkins – mellow genius that wins us over time and time again over the years! The set's actually a twin-tenor outing – with both Hawk and Eddie Jockjaw Davis – the latter of whom, as proved with Johnny Griffin and others, is a perfect partner for ... LP, Vinyl record album
Black Talk!
Prestige, 1970. Very Good
A pivotal album in the development of the use of the Hammond organ in jazz – and Charles Earland's first exposure to a large audience! Durign the 60s, Charles was bumping around the Philly scene quite a bit – and recorded some small group indie sides that first gave a glimpse of his ... LP, Vinyl record album
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
Boss Tenor
Prestige, 1960. Near Mint-
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
Meetin' Here
Pacific Jazz, 1961. Very Good+
There wasn't much organ/tenor material being cut in LA during the early 60s – or not nearly as much as in the rest of the country – but the Amy/Bryant team was one of the city's best, if not the country's. This album's one of their few recordings together, and it features Curtis Amy ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sunshine Man
Flying Dutchman, 1971. Very Good Gatefold
A wicked bit of funky jazz from reedman Harold Alexander – and a set that's much sharper and harder-edged than some of his later work! There's maybe a bit of freedom in the mix, here too – some post-Coltrane spiritualism that mixes with some of the more funk-based currents – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Hard Bop
Columbia, 1956. Very Good
A killer album – one of Art Blakey's best non-Blue Note sides, and a blinding set of hard-driving jazz that well earns its title! The group is one of Blakey's pre-Timmons/Morgan/Shorter ones – with Jackie McLean on alto, Bill Hardman on trumpet, Spanky DeBrest on bass, and Sam Dockery ... LP, Vinyl record album
