Mississippi Gambler

LP (Item 50508) Atlantic, 1972 — Condition: Very Good+
Gatefold

After dipping into the Memphis Underground, Herbie continues his tour of the funky south – recording here at American Studios in Memphis (only 5 miles from Mississippi, we guess!), with a small combo that includes Bobby Emmons on organ, Bobby Wood on electric piano, and Reggie Young on guitar! There's a relaxed easy groove to the album that makes it one of Mann's most consistently satisfying funky albums – a really cool, laidback style that's a great showcase for Herbie's funky flute – and David Newman turns out some great solos on tenor and flute, which really soup the record up! Tracks are long, and titles include "Dippermouth", "Mississippi Gambler", "Respect Yourself", and "Satisfaction".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has mostly unglued seams.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Herbie Mann

Inspiration I Feel
Atlantic, 1968. Very Good+
Herbie Mann takes strong inspiration from the great Ray Charles here – working in a cool mode that's partly the soulful sound of Mann's other work for Atlantic Records, and partly the fuller style of Charles' 60s music for ABC! Backings are full, but very groovy – thanks to ... LP, Vinyl record album

Herbie Mann

Surprises
Atlantic, 1976. Near Mint-
A record that's full of many surprises – one of which is the sweet lead vocals of Cissy Houston! Houston works here in a style that merges nicely with the jazzy currents of Herbie Mann – at a level that's different than other soul/fusion sets of the time – like work on CTI or ...

Herbie Mann

Herbie Mann Plays
Bethlehem, 1957. Very Good
Sprightly early work from the great Herbie Mann – key proof that Herb was always a hell of a talent on his chosen instrument! Mann blows both conventional flute and alto flute on the record – with a deftness of notes that may be the most fluid recorded at that date in jazz – ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1966. Very Good
Herbie Mann got a standing ovation for this performance – at least if the title is to be believed – and considering the grooves on the set, it was all for very good reason! The album's one of the few to feature Mann in the company of pianist Chick Corea – who steps out here with ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1969. Very Good+
Herbie Mann kicks Johnny Rivers off the stage of the Whisky A Go Go – and serves up some amazing long tracks that really redefine the sound of jamming on the Sunset Strip! The album's quite unusual for the time – in that it features two long tracks, which each run a side apiece – ... LP, Vinyl record album

Herbie Mann

Hold On, I'm Comin'
Atlantic, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold
Great early 70s work from Herbie Mann! By this point in his career, Herbie must have had a fleet of cars, a harem of ladies, and a golden flute. You can hear his success in the live material that makes up the album – recorded before very enthusiastic audiences at the New York and Montreux ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nat Adderley

Live At Memory Lane
Atlantic, 1967. Very Good Gatefold
Nice hard swingin' quintet session, with a good late 60's groove. Nat Adderley borrows brother Cannonball's pianist Joe Zawinul, and Joe Henderson sits in on tenor. The set was recorded live, with the same sort of relaxed funky groove as the Cannonball live sets from the time. Cuts include " ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy Giuffre

Western Suite
Atlantic, 1957. Sealed
One of the best-ever Jimmy Giuffre albums! Jimmy's playing here in his classic piano-less trio format, in a group with Jim Hall on guitar and Bob Brookmeyer on trombone. The group was perhaps his best, and they achieve a perfect blend of free-flowing improvised lines, while still managing to ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dave Brubeck/Gerry Mulligan/Paul Desmond

We're All Together Again For The First Time
Atlantic, 1973. Near Mint-
Kind of a meeting of two different generations of Dave Brubeck – as the group here features Paul Desmond's alto sax, a key force in Dave's early recordings – and the baritone sax of Gerry Mulligan, a player who'd worked often with Brubeck in the late 60s and early 70s! The blend of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Joe Zawinul

Zawinul
Atlantic, 1971. Very Good+
A beautiful fusion of Joe Zawinul's roots in the groups of Miles Davis and Cannonball Adderley – a set with some of the far-reaching jazz ideas of the former, and much of the soulful subtleties of the latter! The album features Joe on electric piano throughout, playing alongside Herbie ... LP, Vinyl record album

Charles Lloyd

Love-In
Atlantic, 1967. Sealed
A classic batch of modal grooves from Charles Lloyd – recorded during the height of his mind-expanding years, with his famous quartet that included Keith Jarrett on piano and Jack DeJohnette on drums! The tracks are long and magical, done with that spiritual spiraling sound that Lloyd was ... LP, Vinyl record album

Milt Jackson

Be Bop
Atlantic/East West, 1988. Near Mint-
A surprisingly great record from Milt Jackson – and we're saying that after being plenty darn suspicious about a record titled Be Bop recorded in the late 80s! The set has Jackson returning to the sound of his earliest roots – the boppish material he first cut for Blue Note as a leader ... LP, Vinyl record album
