This image is a general representation of the item and the actual product may differ slightly in terms of color shading, logo placement, borders, or other small details. Used items may have various cosmetic differences as well.
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.
Nice and cool, but not in a west coast way – and instead a set that's got Gene Ammons working some wonderfully soulful magic on a set of gentle ballads! The set's got a brilliant late nite sort of feel – one of those tenor albums that seems to sound even better in the space past ... LP, Vinyl record album
Classic mellow Jug – from a time when Prestige discovered that Gene Ammons would sell equally well to the mellow jazz crowd as to the jukebox jumpers. Most of the cuts feature Gene with a deep soulful tone that could qualify as "velvet", but which still has enough of a rough edge ... LP, Vinyl record album
A great little session by Jug – cut after the late 50s blowing session years, and with a much tighter sound that's very much in the pocket! The record features two groups – one with Walter Bishop, Art Davis, and Art Taylor; the other with Patti Brown, George Duvivier, and Taylor ... LP, Vinyl record album
Kenny Burrell gets the soul call from Prestige Records – the result is one of his grooviest albums of the 60s! The vibe here is nicely mellow – pretty laidback, and almost in the late nite style of some of the Moodsville label dates – with Kenny's guitar ringing out in these ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sublime late 50s hardbop – recorded in the best Prestige blowing session mode! The record has an incredibly open-ended feel – as you might probably guess from the track "All Night Long", which runs for all of side one, and gives all the players included plenty of room to work ... LP, Vinyl record album
Classic American release of Cecil's legendary Shandar recordings! The album is one long live set that has Cecil playing with Sam Rivers, Jimmy Lyons, and Andrew Cyrille – and the material was recorded in Paris in 1969. One long track dominates the set – "Second Act Of A". LP, Vinyl record album
Excellent stuff – and a classic concert performance recorded in Paris in 1964! The group features Eric Dolphy on flute, alto sax and bass clarinet, Clifford Jordan on tenor, Jaki Byard is on piano ,and Dannie Richmand is on the kit. The set features some very long takes on Mingus standards ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sweet electric grooving from Houston Person – an album that features his soulful tenor set in larger arrangements than on his earlier small combo Prestige sessions, in a mode that's a bit like some of the larger jazz sets coming out on CTI and Kudu at the time! Like Stanley Turrentine, who ... LP, Vinyl record album
Shirley Scott plays both the organ and piano with George Duviver on bass and Arthur Edgehill on drums for these eight Duke Ellington tracks. The selections include "Caravan", "Just Squeeze In", "C Jam Blues", "Prelude To A Kiss", "In A Sentimental ... LP, Vinyl record album
