LP, Vinyl record album

(€16.66 || £14.70 || ¥2224) (approx.)

A surprisingly great album – one that features Herbie and Bobby trading flutes and tenor, blowing long solos in a set that gives them plenty of room to work! The album only features four long tracks – "Let's March", "Tel Aviv", "Somewhere Else", and "Chasing The Bird" – blown in the open-ended mode that made some of the best Prestiges sides from the time so great. Joe Puma plays guitar, Tommy Flanagan is on piano, and rhythm is by Wendell Marshall and Bobby Donaldson. (Yellow & black label NY 50th street pressing – with deep groove and RVG stamp! Cover has light wear & a small sticker.)  © 1996-2017, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Very Good - (minus)

  • Vinyl may be dirty, and can lack a fair amount of luster.
  • Vinyl can have a number of marks, either in clusters or smaller amounts, but deeper.
  • This is the kind of record that you'd buy to play, but not because it looked that great. Still, the flaws should be mostly cosmetic, with nothing too deep that would ruin the overall record.
  • Examples include a record that has been kept for a while in a cover without the paper sleeve, or heavily played by a previous owner and has some marks across the surface. The record should play okay, though probably with surface noise.

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.

Prestige, Early 60s. Very Good+
One of Shirley Scott's best records on Prestige (and in fact, one of the few really good ones). Shirley plays a bunch of Horace Silver compositions like "Moon Ray" and "Senor Blues", and the set's got a nice spiritual feel to it, without the hokiness of some of Shirley's other ...

Jug
Prestige, 1961. Very Good
A real turning point in the career of Gene Ammons – a record that almost returns Ammons to his earthier roots, and in the process helps build up a whole new sound in soul jazz for the 60s! The "Jug" nickname in the title is kind of a joking way to help Ammons stand alongside "M ... LP, Vinyl record album
New Jazz/Prestige, Early 50s. Good+
Sublime early Getz all the way through – material that shows why even right out of the gate, Stan's sound on the tenor was one to be reckoned with! Side one features a quartet with Al Haig on piano, Tommy Potter on bass, and Roy Haynes on drums – all giving Stan plenty of room to ... LP, Vinyl record album
Best Of Houston Person
Prestige, Late 60s. Very Good+
Good set of some of Houston Person's best hard tenor tracks for Prestige, including some from the more hard-to-find albums, like "Chocomotive" and "Blue Odyssey", the title tracks of two of his best (and most difficult) for the label. 6 tracks in all, with Person's nice gut ...

Shout It Out
Prestige, 1977. Very Good
A pivotal record for Patrice Rushen – a set that has her really tightening things up from her previous Prestige albums – heading much more towards the focused soul-drenched grooves of her Elektra Records years! The set's a stunner – still very much with the hip, west coast funky ... LP, Vinyl record album
Free Again
Prestige, 1973. Very Good
Dang! Poor Gene Ammons kept getting stuck with albums that had titles which referenced his prison time! Fortunately, the quality of this one's good enough to live past the stupid name – and the record has Gene blowing with a larger group of west coast soul jazz players, arranged by Bobby ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, 1954. Fair
A great set from Moody, nice and edgey, with his genius firmly in place! Quincy Jones handled the arrangements, and the group swings in a variety of modes. Moody's on alto and tenor – no flute yet at this point – and highlights include "Workshop", a great number with ... LP, Vinyl record album

To Hear Is To See
Prestige, Late 60s/Early 70s. Very Good
Moody bit of electric stuff recorded by Eric Kloss with the Miles' (then) rhythm section of Chick Corea, Dave Holland, and Jack DeJohnette. The groove is very open ended, as you'd expect from these guys at the time, but Kloss is right in the pocket with his sharp solos on alto and tenor. Tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album
Steppin' Out
Prestige, 1969. Very Good+
A great collection of previously-unreleased Prestige material from Jack McDuff – brought together as a full album at the end of the 60s! There's a number of different groups on here, but Joe Dukes plays drums in all of them – and other players include Grant Green or George Benson on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, 1959. Very Good-
Smoking tenor work from the legendary Willis Jackson – and a key record in Jackson's transition from 50s R&B to 60s soul jazz! Willis gets some great help on the session from Jack McDuff on organ and Wild Bill Jennings on guitar – both of whom craft some rootsy grooves that further ... LP, Vinyl record album
Brothers
Prestige, 1949/1952. Very Good+
A classic Prestige LP that compiles earlier sides by Getz – four tunes from a 1949 session recorded under Stan Getz & His Four Brothers, with Zoot Sims, Al Cohn, Allen Eager, and Brew Moore – all blowing with Getz in a real "brothers-like" sax section sound. The remaining ... LP, Vinyl record album
