Gene Ammons All Star Sessions (aka Woofin & Tweetin)

LP (Item 43367) Prestige, Early 50s — Condition: Sealed
Just Sold Out!

LP, Vinyl record album

❔

Nice nice album on Prestige, bringing together Jug's earlier sides in 2 different settings. The first batch has Ammons "battling" Sonny Stitt in a set of stuff that features hard twin tenors in the frontline, with the kind of cutting contests the two of them would perform live all over the country. Titles on that one include "Stringin The Jug", "New Blues Up & Down", and "You Can Depend On Me". The other side of the record features Ammons in one of those great Prestige open-ended groups – with crack players like Art Farmer, Lou Donaldson, and Freddie Redd – all soloing long and soulfully on two tracks – "Woofin & Tweetin" and "Juggernaut".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Sealed

This is what it says, that the record is still held fast in shrink-wrap. We tend to be pretty suspicious about these things, so if the shrink-wrap doesn't look original, or if the record seems to have undergone some damage over time, we'll probably take it out of the wrapper to ensure that it's in good shape — which is why we don't have more of these. In some cases the shrink-wrap may be torn in spots, but if it's not possible the record has been taken out and played, the record will still qualify as "Sealed".

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.

Jug Sessions
Mercury, Late 40s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Early work from Gene Ammons – his obscure late 40s recordings for Mercury Records – mostly from the 78rpm years! Sidemen include Junior Mance, Albert Ammons, Israel Crosby, Gene Wright and lesser known Chicago locals like Wes Landers, Leo Blevins, Jess Miller and Ernest McDonald. As you' ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, 1960s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Our favorite side of Gene Ammons' talents – summed up nicely in a 2LP set! Ammons wasn't the first tenor player to work with a Hammond organ, but once the format gained popularity, Gene made a wise move to take it up – and it became a pairing that forever defined the later years of his ...

Makes It Happen
Cadet, 1950. Near Mint-
An interesting album for Gene Ammons – one that was issued in the late 60s with a very sexy-looking cover, but which actually features recordings of much earlier vintage! The sides on the set were recorded in 1950, and they've got a sound that's moody, echoey, and which shows the soulfulness ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, Late 50s. Near Mint-
Not to be confused with the Jammin' With Gene LP, this set was later reissued as The Twister. Classic blowing session material from Jug – with 4 long tracks that are all a superb example of how great Prestige could be when they wanted to! The group is filled with great players – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, 1958. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
A nice 2LP set that collects material recorded on January 3, 1958 – originally issued as 2 separate LPs, The Big Sound and Groove Blues, but collected here together in its entirety, along with a good set of notes! The album's classic Ammons, playing in a laidback open-ended blowing session, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gene Ammons

Boss Tenor
Prestige, 1960. Near Mint-
A soul jazz classic from Gene Ammons – the kind of session that easy made him "boss" on tenor – with a tone and conception that few other players could touch! The set is done in a style that's laidback, but never too loose – bouncing along in that "with conga" ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gene Ammons

Goodbye
Prestige, 1975. Very Good
Gene Ammons' last session – not as funky as earlier work for Prestige, but pretty nice at that! The group's got Gary Bartz on alto, Kenny Drew on piano, Sam Jones on bass, Louis Hayes on drums, and Nat Adderley on cornet – and they groove together well, in the kind of soul jazz/modal ... LP, Vinyl record album

Oliver Nelson

Screamin' The Blues
New Jazz/Prestige, 1960. Near Mint-
One of the most open-ended and laidback records ever from Oliver Nelson – a set that gets away from the tighter arrangements of other albums, and really lets you concentrate on his saxophone work! The album's got a really wonderful feel throughout – easygoing and soulful, with work by ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, 1967. Near Mint-
Some obscure but great 60s work by Chet Baker – and one of 5 albums recorded under the guidance of Richard Carpenter, best known as the author of "Walkin", but also Chet's manager at the time. The record's got a lot more soulful feel than some of Chet's other work – thanks to ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, Early 50s. Very Good
Lots of classic early material – including "If I Were A Bell" recorded with John Coltrane on tenor and Red Garland on piano, "Conception" with Sonny Rollins on tenor and Jackie McLean on alto, "Bag's Groove" with Milt Jackson on vibes, "Solar" with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jack McDuff

Dynamic Jack McDuff
Prestige, 1964. Near Mint- Gatefold
A great groover from Brother Jack! The record is one of a few that Prestige cut matching Jack's hot quartet with the larger arrangements of Benny Golson – and that formula created some real winners that still sound great today! Sure, the formula was initiated by matching Jimmy Smith with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Thelonious Monk

Monk (2LP set)
Prestige, Early 50s. Near Mint- Gatefold
A 2LP set that combines tracks from a number of rare early 50s eps that Monk recorded for Prestige! The group's are a mix of trios – with Art Blakey or Max Roach on drums – and quintets, with horn players like Frank Foster, Sonny Rollins, and Ray Copeland. Titles include "Work&quo ...
