Jazz Junction (Soul Junction/All Morning Long)

LP (Item 422199) Prestige, 1957 — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP Gatefold

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".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light wear.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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

Tough Duff
Prestige, 1960. Very Good+
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
Prestige, 1977. Near Mint- 3LP Box Set
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
Prestige, 1964. Near Mint- 3LP Trifold
Excellent stuff – and a classic concert performance recorded in Paris in 1964!

Prestige, 1972. Very Good+
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

Red Soul
Prestige, 1966. Near Mint-
Red Holloway caught in two different modes – one with organ, the other with piano – both plenty darn great!

Pharoah Sanders

Village Of The Pharoahs
Impulse, 1973. Very Good+ Gatefold
An overlooked gem from Pharoah Sanders' years on Impulse – one that has him breaking the pattern a bit, but in a really great way! The session mixes up more shorter songs than before – still all quite spiritual, but also a bit more focused – in a way that packs an incredible ... LP, Vinyl record album

Miles Davis

Live Evil
Columbia, 1972. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
A beautiful live representation of the energy of the Bitches Brew years – one that has Miles Davis and the group really letting loose with free-flowing, modally-inspired lines – cooking up an incredible blend of acoustic and electric sounds at once! There's a bit of funk here, but not ... LP, Vinyl record album

Clarence Wheeler

New Chicago Blues
Atlantic, 1972. Very Good+
No blues at all – despite the title – and a great set of tracks that showcases the southside Chicago tenor roots of Clarence Wheeler!

Interstellar Space

One of the greatest recordings ever made by John Coltrane in his late years – a spare set of duets with drummer Rashied Ali, recorded in 1967, but never issued until after his death! Trane and Ali play in a free spiritualist mode, with no other accompaniment – making for a very unique ... LP, Vinyl record album
