Jazz For The Carriage Trade

LP (Item 50036) Prestige, 1956 — Condition: Near Mint-

Sublime work from pianist George Wallington – and one of his best albums ever! The set's also one of the few he ever recorded as a leader outside the trio format, and has him working with a very hip quintet that features Phil Woods, Donald Byrd, Teddy Kotick, and Art Taylor – all players that help push the record with a tremendous amount of hardbop and modern jazz energy! Byrd and Woods are at their best youthful prime on the set – and the longish tracks really give both artists room to stretch out and show off their talents! Titles include "Foster Dulles", "Together We Wail", "Our Delight", and "But George".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(70s Japanese pressing.)

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.

Savoy, 1957. Sealed
A rare quintet session from George Wallington – and a smoking little record we'd rate right up there with his other non-trio sides of the 50s! The set's done in that hard-edge Savoy mode of the time – relaxed and open, with lots of dark elements in the rhythms – and beautifully ... LP, Vinyl record album

George Wallington

Knight Music
Atlantic, Late 50s. Very Good+
Great work from bop legend George Wallington – one of the last records in an initial run of 50s strengths from the pianist – and a set that features some great original compositions of his own! The set's a bit unusual for Atlantic Records at the time – almost more of a Prestige ... LP, Vinyl record album
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

Shirley Scott

Scottie Plays The Duke
Prestige, 1959. Very Good+
Shirley Scott plays both the organ and piano with George Duviver on bass and Arthur Edgehill on drums for these eight Duke Ellington tracks. The selections include "Caravan", "Just Squeeze In", "C Jam Blues", "Prelude To A Kiss", "In A Sentimental ... LP, Vinyl record album

Red Holloway

Red Soul
Prestige, 1966. Near Mint-
Red Holloway caught in two different modes – one with organ, the other with piano – both plenty darn great! Side one features Holloway working with a very young Lonnie Smith on Hammond and George Benson on guitar – in a mode that's quite similar to the groove Red laid down with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gene Ammons

Nice An' Cool
Prestige/Moodsville, 1961. Very Good-
Nice and cool, but not in a west coast way – and instead a set that's got Gene Ammons working some wonderfully soulful magic on a set of gentle ballads! The set's got a brilliant late nite sort of feel – one of those tenor albums that seems to sound even better in the space past ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jack McDuff & Gene Ammons

Brother Jack Meets The Boss
Prestige, 1962. Very Good
A classic early set from Jack McDuff – and a record that's very much in his own hands, despite the presence of Gene Ammons as a co-leader! The group's more of a McDuff one than an Ammons ensemble – and features the great Joe Dukes on drums, Eddie Diehl on guitar, and Harold Vick on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Shirley Scott with Stanely Turrentine

Soul Is Willing (black cover)
Prestige, Early 60s. Very Good
One of the strongest albums that Shirley Scott ever cut with Stanley Turrentine – organ and tenor working together perfectly in a mellow soulful groove, sliding easily from track to track in a mode that still satisfies mightily over the years! The group is tight, soulful quartet, featuring ... LP, Vinyl record album

Oliver Nelson

Afro/American Sketches
Prestige, 1961. Good
One of the first larger concept albums from Oliver Nelson – and a set that really marked a strong step forward as a jazz arranger! The album is one long suite – as you might guess from the title – with righteous themes that deal not just with rising independence in postwar Africa ... LP, Vinyl record album
