Jazz Junction (Soul Junction/All Morning Long)

LP (Item 422199) Prestige, 1957 — Condition: Used
2LP Gatefold
Out Of Stock

LP


One of those 70s two-fers where Prestige went back and decided dicing up all those sessions in the 50s and 60s didn't make as much sense as issuing them as the way they went down. As such, this set collects work from one long blowing session, which eventually saw the light of day as two separate albums, Soul Junction and All Morning Long. The sides are a great meeting point between 50s hard bop and some of the looser, earthier styles that were beginning to show up in the first years of soul jazz! Red Garland works here with a super solid quintet featuring John Coltrane and Donald Byrd in the front plus Art Taylor and Jamil Nasser in the rhythm section. 8 numbers in all, including the very lengthy "Soul Junction" and "All Morning Long", plus "Woody'N You", "Birk's Works", "I've Got It Bad", "They Can't Take That Away FromMe", "Our Delight" and "Hallelujah".  © 1996-2016, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.

Solar
Jazzland, 1962. Very Good-
An obscure little quartet session from Red Garland – recorded with Les Spann on both guitar and flute, caught at a time when he was just starting to make waves on the New York scene! The presence of Spann gives the record a decidedly different feel than most of Garland's work on Prestige ... LP, Vinyl record album

Prestige, 1959. Very Good-
One of the harder to find Red Garland albums on Prestige, and a trio session recorded with Specs Wright on drums and Jimmy Rowser on bass. This was Prestige's first live night club recording, and it's recorded live on location at the Prelude in Harlem. Red's a little bit less mannered than usual, ... LP, Vinyl record album

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

Living Black
Prestige, 1970. Very Good
A stone cold live date from Charles Earland – recorded in Newark, at just the sort of club where he got his start! The tracks are quite long and openly grooving – even more so than Charles' killer studio sets from the time – and there's a bit of a harder edge here too, thanks ... LP, Vinyl record album

Luminescence!
Prestige, 1969. Very Good
An extremely striking sextet session from pianist Barry Harris – quite unlike most of his other work from the time! The group on the album features Pepper Adams on baritone, Junior Cook on tenor, and Slide Hampton on trombone – and that brace of three horns gives a really solid feel to ... LP, Vinyl record album

Soul Message
Prestige, 1965. Near Mint-
A key album in the career of Richard Groove Holmes – his first session ever for Prestige Records, and the one that yielded the monster crossover hit version of "Misty"! The sound here is much leaner and cleaner than Groove in his Pacific Jazz years – a tight trio approach ... LP, Vinyl record album

Get Up & Get It!
Prestige, 1967. Very Good-
Nicely grooving gutbucket tenor/organ material from a group that includes Groove Holmes, Teddy Edwards, and Pat Martino. Billy Higgins is on drums, and he gives the set a bit more swing than you'd expect – especially on the lighter, faster tunes. Titles include "Grooves' Blue ... LP, Vinyl record album

Mellow Soul
Prestige, 1967. Very Good
A growling set of organ jazz tracks, played by Don with a tight trio that includes David Fathead Newman on flute and tenor. The set includes a great version of James Moody's amazing "Darben The Redd Foxx", plus the tracks "Head", "Mellow Soul", and "Hump Snapa ... 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

Walk On By
Prestige, 1966. Very Good
Wonderful stuff from Brother Jack McDuff – very hip, with a mixture of soul jazz and 60s grooving that's hard to beat! The album's also one of Jack's harder to find numbers on Prestige – and it features tenor work by Red Holloway and Harold Ousely, guitar by Pat Azzara, drums by Joe ... LP, Vinyl record album

Subconscious-Lee
Prestige, 1949/1950. Very Good+
One of THE key records in the Konitz school – a full length Prestige album that brings together important material from sessions originally issued on 10" LPs! The lineup here is virtually the Konitz school – with shifting lineups that include Billy Bauer on guitar, Lenny Tristano ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ezz-Thetic
Prestige/New Jazz, 1951/1952. Very Good
A great full length album that brings together early 50s work in the "birth of the cool" mode! Side one features Lee Konitz and Miles Davis – in a group with Sal Mosca, Max Roach, and Billy Bauer, on very "birth of the cool" like tracks that include "Odjenar", ... LP, Vinyl record album
