High Blues Pressure

CD (Item 603376) Atlantic/Koch, 1968 — Condition: Used
$14.99 ...

CD

A real gem from Freddie Hubbard's 60s years – an all soul jazz outing, cut with a hip array of players that show that young Fred was definitely on the forefront of jazz at the time! Despite the "blues" in the title, the main groove is spiritual soul jazz – in a style that puts Freddie a few years ahead of the Strata East crew, and working here in a mode that he oddly didn't continue into the 70s. The album's got a really righteous sound overall – with long tracks that really stretch out wonderfully with rich feeling and spirit – thanks to work from players who include Weldon Irvine and Kenny Barron on piano, Bennie Maupin and James Spaulding on reeds, and Freddie Waits on drums. The set's filled with great original tunes that include Freddie's "Latina", "True Colors", and "For BP" – as well as a version of Weldon Irvine's "Can't Let Her Go".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

Freddie Hubbard

Breaking Point!
Blue Note, 1966. Used
Pivotal work from Freddie Hubbard – a tight, edgey quintet side with a sound that approaches the Blue Note "new thing" sound, but which stays just this side of the fence to keep in line with Freddie's other soulful work of the 60s! The group features some great work by James ... CD

Freddie Hubbard

Hub Cap
Blue Note, 1961. Used
Classic Freddie Hubbard on Blue Note – from the hip cover to the magical music in the grooves! The session is one of Freddie's all-time best from the early days – and features a very hard wailing lineup that mixes tight hardbop rhythms with some more adventurous soloing that almost has ... CD

Freddie Hubbard

Back To Birdland
Drive Archive, 1981. Used
Freddie Hubbard on trumpet and flugelhorn, Ashley Alexander on double trombone, George Cables on piano, Richie Cole on alto saxophone, John Dentz on drums, and Andy Simpkins on bass. CD
Atlantic/Rhino, Early 60s. Used 6 CD + Book
We'll be honest with you – we love this stuff! Sure, Ornette made some great recordings for a number of other labels – but as a whole, his Atlantic stuff is some of the greatest modern jazz ever recorded, and no other period of an artist is more worth collecting and having in a ... CD
Atlantic, 1960. Used
Coltrane plays the blues, but in a way like nobody else – stepping off of the deeply soulful sound of his late Prestige years, and moving into even more open and exploratory space for Atlantic! The setting is bare bones and simple – and many of these numbers begin with the sort of ... CD

Brubeck Brothers

Intuition
Koch, 2006. Used
With Dan Brubeck on drums and Chris Brubeck on bass and bass trombone – plus Mike DeMicco on guitar, Taylor Eigsti on pinao, and special guest Pete Levin on organ. CD

George Russell

Jazz Workshop
RCA/Koch, 1956. Used
Very hip early work from George Russell – a set that's maybe not as high-concept as some of his later records, but which still has a strikingly modern vibe! Russell's trying out some of his new tonal ideas here – and has a group that's very well-chosen for the project – with Art ... CD
Koch, 1995. Used
James Blood Ulmer does a nice job here with the music of Ornette Coleman – no surprise, considering what a big influence Ornette was on Ulmer's music! And although Ulmer's harmelodic styles of the 80s are what first brought him great fame, the album's actually got a much more open approach ... CD

Fats Navarro

Goin To Minton's
Savoy/Atlantic, 1946/1947. Used
Early Savoy sides – other musicians include Eddie Lockjaw Davis on tenor, Kenny Dorham on trumpet, Sony Stitt on alto, Leo Parker on baritone sax, and Tadd Dameron on piano. 22 tracks in all. CD

Modern Jazz Quartet

Legendary Profile
Atlantic (Japan), 1972. Used
A cool 70s album from the Modern Jazz Quartet – and one that has John Lewis playing a bit of electric piano, in addition to his usual acoustic keys! At some level, it almost feels like the group's working off the lessons learned during their Apple Records years – and are also picking ... CD

Larry Ochs & Donald Robinson

Civil Right
ESP, 2021. Used
Nicely bracing work from reedman Larry Ochs – a player you might know from his long legacy in Rova Sax Quartet, but who's often even more striking in a stripped-down setting like this! The album features improvised duets with drummer Don Robinson – and Ochs blows both tenor and ... CD
Black Lion (Germany), 1977. Used
Rod Mason on cornet, clippertone, valve trombone, clarinet, and vocals – with Pete allen on saxophones and clarinet, Johnny Withers on banjo and guitar, Chris Haskins on bass, and Jimmy Garforth on drums. CD
