Flute Souffle

LP (Item 51550) Prestige, 1957 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


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.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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.

On With It!
Prestige, 1961/1971. Very Good
A great session by McDuff – one that was recorded in 1961, but not issued until this version in 1971! The band features McDuff in one of his earliest sessions with the great Joe Dukes on drums, and it shows the emergence of that wicked sense of humor, and tight arranging that made his 60s ...

Great Scott!! (Prestige)
Prestige, Early 60s. Very Good
A mellow trio session – Shirley on organ, George Duvivier on bass, and Art Edgehill on drums – done in the moody, loungey style of most of Shirley's work as a leader for Prestige. There's nothing here that's going to hit you over the head, but the album does have a really solid feel ... LP, Vinyl record album

Classic set of European recordings – made by Dolphy in 1961, before the fateful 1964 European tour that would later claim his life.

Velvet Soul
Prestige, 1964. Very Good
Classic mellow Jug – from a time when Prestige discovered that Gene Ammons would sell equally well to the mellow jazz crowd as to the jukebox jumpers. Most of the cuts feature Gene with a deep soulful tone that could qualify as "velvet", but which still has enough of a rough edge ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blue Gene
Prestige, Late 50s. Very Good
Way more than just an album with Gene Ammons as a leader – and instead, a set that truly earns the "all stars" listed on the cover – thanks to a great array of supporting players, and a very loose, open-ended jam session style that lets everyone get in plenty of solo space! ...

What It Is
Prestige, Early 70s. Good
Killer funkiness from Boogaloo Joe Jones! Grover Washington Jr makes an incredible appearance here – sounding much harder and heavier than on some of his Kudu recordings – more of a gritty soul jazz player, working beautifully alongside the sharp guitar of Boogaloo Joe Jones, and the ...
