Soul Searching

LP (Item 53626) Prestige, 1959 — Condition: Very Good+
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

✈
❔

Great early work as a leader from organist Shirley Scott – a tight trio album that's filled with plenty of heavy Hammond, all set out in that early Scott mode with plenty of flutters and vibration! The group features frequent Scott associates Wendell Marshall on bass and Arthur Edgehill on drums – both laying out simple, effective rhythms that feature Shirley's organ as the main solo vehicle. The record's got some really great original compositions – including "Plunk Plunk Plunk", "Duck & Rock", "Boss", and "Soul Searchin" – plus versions of "Yes Indeed", "Moanin", and "You Won't Let Me Go".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mono yellow & black label NJ pressing with deep groove & RVG stamp. Cover has some clear tape on the top seam, center split in the bottom seam, and some yellowing from age.)

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.

Prestige, Early 60s. Near Mint-
One of Shirley Scott's best records on Prestige (and in fact, one of the few really good ones).

Jackie McLean

4, 5 & 6
Prestige, 1956. Near Mint-
An unusual title, but one that refers to Jackie McLean in quartet, quintet, and sextet formation – a growing lineup that develops along the course of the record, as new players are added into the mix with a casual, almost blowing session approach! The set begins with Jackie's alto set out in ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, Early 50s/1965. Very Good
Yipes! The MJQ must have freaked out when they saw the title to this one – especially since the record doesn't feature them playing especially for lovers, it's just a collection of their excellent early work for Prestige.

Prestige, 1960s. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Our favorite side of Gene Ammons' talents – summed up nicely in a 2LP set!

Big Sound
Prestige, Mid 50s. Very Good
Classic Jug, playing in a laidback open-ended blowing session, with other strong Prestige players – like Coltrane, Jerome Richardson, Paul Quinichette, Art Taylor, and Mal Waldron, who always seems to be the driving force between most Prestige sides like this.

Moody set of tracks that has Willis' fat tenor sound fronting a little combo on a set of "Italian" standards like "Arrividerci Roma", "Volare", "Al Di La", plus the original "Verdi's Vonce". Bucky Pizzarelli's on guitar, to give the LP a "Neaop ... LP, Vinyl record album

Red Garland

Manteca
Prestige, 1958. Very Good
One of the best by Red Garland for Prestige – a totally cooking record that features some great added conga work from Ray Barretto!
