Concert McDuff

LP (Item 3421) Prestige, 1965 — Condition: Very Good+
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

❔

Don't be put off by the staid sound of "concert" in the title – because the album's a great set of swingin' live McDuff, recorded at his prime, with the classic quartet of George Benson, Red Holloway, and Joe Dukes. The album's filled with screamin' groovers throughout, including a great version of "Girl From Ipanema", plus originals like "Another Goodun" and "S'Okay". McDuff was always best in a live setting – and this rare gem is a great testament to that fact!  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Blue label pressing, with address sitckers on the labels. Cover has a split on the top left corner.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

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.

Jack McDuff

Live!
Prestige, 1963. Very Good-
A killer, and one of three live sides McDuff cut for Prestige during the 60s – a monster session of stretched-out jazzy grooves, with many fine little dancers, and a raw soulful feel throughout! The group's one of Jack's best – as Red Holloway's tenor blows and hollers over the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, Mid 60s. Very Good-
A killer diller of a live set from Brother Jack McDuff – a cut that burns with energy that almost beats his studio 60s classics for Prestige! The group is one of Jack's best ever – a lineup that includes the twin tenors of Red Holloway and Harold Vick, plus incredibly sharp guitar from ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jack McDuff

Mellow Gravy
Prestige, Mid 60s. Very Good+
Mellow gravy is right! Brother Jack swings it nice and cool with help from Joe Dukes, Gene Ammons, and Harold Vick – using his patented two-tenor sound for a very full-on groove that makes this one of the best of his early 60s Prestige sessions. The tracks are all around the 5 to 7 minute ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jack McDuff

Tough Duff
Prestige, 1960. Near Mint-
One of Jack McDuff's first albums as a leader – and a really solid cooker that also features vibes and tenor sax! Given that McDuff hardly ever recorded with vibes again, the session's got a real standout sound that deserves to be heard – as Jack's smoking work on the Hammond comes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Billy Butler

Night Life
Prestige, 1971. Very Good+
An album with a very different groove than usual for Billy Butler! On this set, his guitar seems to be processed through something that sounds a bit like a wah wah pedal – although we're not quite sure, and can't find any reference to the technology in the notes. It's got a sound that's a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Oliver Nelson

Images
Prestige, 1960/1976. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Oliver Nelson never gets his due, and we can never understand why, because his talents as both an arranger and soloist are extremely strong. This nice 2 LP set brings together 2 albums that are bound to make a convert out of anyone who's been passing him up so far, and it shows a young Nelson in a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Richard Groove Holmes

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

Gene Ammons

Blue Gene
Prestige, Late 50s. Very Good-
Way more than just an album with Gene Ammons as a leader – and instead, a set that truly earns the "all stars" listed on the cover – thanks to a great array of supporting players, and a very loose, open-ended jam session style that lets everyone get in plenty of solo space! ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Coltrane

Lush Life
Prestige, 1957/1958. Very Good
Strong work from John Coltrane's early years as a leader – even if the album is sort of a collection of tracks that Trane recorded for Prestige, instead of a discreetly separate session! Side one features Coltrane's tenor in a spare setting with Earl May on bass and Art Taylor on drums ... LP, Vinyl record album

Larry Young

Testifying
Prestige/New Jazz, 1960. Very Good+
Before stretching out on Blue Note later on in the 60s, Larry Young started the decade with some great sets like this – straighter soul jazz that showed he had a very firm grasp on traditional modes for the Hammond – more than enough to allow his experimentation in later years! The set' ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sonny Stitt

Stitt's Bits
Prestige, Late 40s/Early 50s. Near Mint-
A classic early collection of Sonny Stitt bop material for Prestige – most of which were originally issued as 78s, but combined together in this fantastic full length LP! The package features Stitt in all of his cutting early greatness – blowing tenor in varying groups that include ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gene Ammons

Late Hour Special
Prestige, 1964. Very Good
Very nice album by Jug that often gets overlooked because it's comprised of 2 different sessions, and can't get the "historical" writeup of being a single significant moment in the studio. Some tracks – including "Lascivious" and "Soft Winds" – are with a ... LP, Vinyl record album
