All Day Long (photo cover)

LP (Item 34369) Prestige, 1957 — Condition: Good+
Also available
Kenny Burrell — All Day Long (Japanese pressing – with bonus track) ... CD 18.99

One of the best blowing sessions on Prestige – and proof that Kenny Burrell could hit a nice groove when he wanted to! The record is a very open-ended set, and players include Burrell, Donald Byrd, Frank Foster, Tommy Flanagan, Doug Watkins, and Art Taylor. Side one features a great long track called "All Day Long", with loads of space and plenty of great soloing – a cut that is quite possibly THE blowing session tune from Prestige – as it's a perfect example of the label's work in that style, and one of the longest ever recorded in that format. Side two features shorter cuts "Slim Jim", "Say Listen", and "AT" – all a bit tighter, and still very nice!  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Yellow & black label 50th St NYC pressing, with deep groove and RVG/AB etch. Vinyl plays with some crackles, mostly on Side B. Cover has center splits in the spine and bottom seam, with some small stains on back at the top and along the spine.)

Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, or have one outstanding flaw, such as a light residue, which could be difficult to clean.
  • May have marks on all parts, too many to qualify as Very Good-, or several deeper marks, but the record should still be ok for play without skips.
  • In general, this is a record that was played a fair amount, and handled without care. A typical example may be a record which has been heavily played by a DJ, and carries marks from slip cueing. Depending on the quality of the vinyl, may play with surface noise throughout.

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.

Verve, 1970. Very Good+
A stunner from Kenny Burrell – one of his most sophisticated and soulful sessions of the 60s! Kenny's working here with the ultra-cool arranger Johnny Pate – best known for his work with Curtis Mayfield, and his 70s soundtrack fame – but a heck of a creative talent when it comes ...

Tender Gender
Cadet, 1966. Near Mint-
Straight, strong, and soulful sounds from guitarist Kenny Burrell – quite possibly one of his best albums of the 60s, thanks to a really well-focused sound throughout!

Leon Spencer

Bad Walking Woman
Prestige, 1972. Near Mint-
Supremely heavy work from organist Leon Spencer – one of his classic jazz funk sessions for Prestige Records, and a record that shows him opening up his sound a bit more than before!

Ivan Boogaloo Joe Jones

Snake Rhythm Rock
Prestige, 1973. Near Mint-
A tasty batch of funky jazz cuts from Ivan Boogaloo Joe Jones – working here in a tight guitar groove that's actually better than that heard on his early albums for Prestige! The group's a good one – with Rusty Bryant on tenor, Butch Cornell on organ, and Grady Tate on drums – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Miles Davis

Blue Haze
Prestige, 1954. Sealed
An early full-length album issued under Miles Davis' name – one that brings together some earlier 10" and single recordings for Prestige! The feel here is quite similar to Davis' work of the time for Blue Note – done with tracks that are short and tight, and very boppish – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Paul Quinichette

On The Sunny Side
Prestige, 1957. Sealed
A perfect example of the great skill that Prestige had for taking a good ensemble player, and putting him into a context that really let him open up in a manner that brought his best points to light! In this case, Quinichette's plucked from Basie's group and put with a tight bunch of soulful ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, 1961/1968. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Nice 2-in-1 set that reissues 2 hard to find albums by Roland Kirk! Kirk's Work is a strange and tasty album that Kirk made with organist Jack McDuff in the early 60s. The album's also been issued under the title Funk Underneath – but this is the original version. Kirk's tenor, manzello, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eric Dolphy

Out There
Prestige/New Jazz, 1960. Near Mint-
Eric Dolphy's second album as a leader – and already a bold step forward from the first! The format here changes from the more standard lineup of before – as Dolphy drops out other horn players, loses the piano, and brings the cello of Ron Carter into the frontline! Backing is by the ... LP, Vinyl record album

George Braith

Laughing Soul
Prestige, 1966. Near Mint-
A fantastic lost bit of soul jazz from the 60s! The great reedman George Braith makes a rare non-Blue Note appearance here – working in a tightly grooving mode that's even groovier than his better-known work for that label! The group here features Grant Green on guitar and John Patton on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gildo Mahones

I'm Shooting High
Prestige, 1963. Very Good+
Very hard to find LP by this obscure soul jazz piano giant from the early 60's. Best known as the accompanist for Lambert, Hendricks, & Ross, Mahones has a tight soulful style that's always in the pocket, and sounds like Bobby Timmons or John Wright in their best moments. This LP's unique in ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy Forrest

Most Much!
Prestige, 1961. Very Good-
Gutsy tenor work from Jimmy Forrest – a player who was poised to rival Sonny Stitt and Gene Ammons at the start of the 60s, and who could have easily done so, given the strength of his work for Prestige! The record's one of a few that the St Louis player got to cut for the label – and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, Early 50s. Very Good
A key moment in the sound of piano jazz in the 50s – featuring Billy Taylor, and his trio that included Earl May on bass and Charlie Smith on drums. Titles include "Cool & Caressing", "Tenderly", "I've Got The World On A String", "That's All", ... LP, Vinyl record album
