Big Bands – 1933

LP (Item 612586) Prestige, 1933 — Condition: Near Mint-

(Blue label pressing in a purple cover.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

Hampton Hawes

Playin In The Yard
Prestige, 1973. Very Good+
Very very nice electric material by Hampton, recorded live at Montreux in 1973, and with a light open-ended groove that's got a sweet mellow feel. The record is similar to some of Ahmad Jamal's from the same time – with a sound that's not really funk, but which has some wonderful soulful ... LP, Vinyl record album

David Fathead Newman

Keep The Dream Alive
Prestige, 1978. Very Good+
Slick 70s jazz funk from Fathead – an uncommon record in his canon, and a nice one! If you're more accustomed to hearing Newman in more of his bluesy southern R&B inflected jazz setting, this one's a groovy left turn – with a more polished touch here a la 70s Fantasy, with Wilbur ... LP, Vinyl record album

Freddie McCoy

Peas & Rice
Prestige, 1967. Very Good+
Stunning stuff – and one of the few great records that vibist Freddie McCoy cut for Prestige! Very different than the usual funky vibesmen, Freddie's got a style that leads itself nicely to modal pop soul jazz – as you'll hear on the short little groovers that fill up this album, all ... LP, Vinyl record album

Steve Lacy

Soprano Sax
Prestige, 1957. Sealed
A stone classic from Steve Lacy – a record that was nearly as important to the soprano sax in jazz as it was to Lacy in his career! In one record, Lacy almost single-handedly takes the soprano sax into the modern age – working before Coltrane and others to push the instrument from its ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, Mid 60s. Near Mint-
A killer diller of a live set from Brother Jack McDuff – a cut that burns with energy that almost beats his studio 60s classics for Prestige! The group is one of Jack's best ever – a lineup that includes the twin tenors of Red Holloway and Harold Vick, plus incredibly sharp guitar from ... LP, Vinyl record album

Modern Jazz Quartet/Milt Jackson Quintet

MJQ
Prestige, 1952/1954. Sealed
Nice stuff from the early days of the MJQ – recorded back when Kenny Clarke was still playing drums with the group, and giving them a bit more of a bottom! One side of the record features material recorded from one of the quartet's first sessions – in late 1952, with the tracks "La ... LP, Vinyl record album

Charles McPherson

McPherson's Mood
Prestige, 1970. Very Good+
A really beautiful batch of tracks from Charles McPherson – with a late 60s approach to soul jazz that reminds us of some of the work by Sonny Criss on Prestige, or of some of Cedar Walton's sessions from the same time. McPherson's moved way past his earlier bop roots here – stretching ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gene Ammons

Twister
Prestige, Late 50s. Very Good
Classic blowing session material from Jug – with 4 long tracks that are all a superb example of how great Prestige could be when they wanted to! The group is filled with great players – Jackie McLean, Mal Waldron, Idrees Sulieman, and Kenny Burrell – and the band plays with a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, Early 50s. Sealed
One of the best-ever documents of the young genius of tenorist Wardell Gray – exactly the kind of music that shows why he was one of the biggest and best of the bop saxophonists – before he was taken away from us all too soon! The material here was originally issued on 78s or 45s, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

George Benson/Jack McDuff

New Boss Guitar Of George Benson
Prestige, 1964. Near Mint-
The first album ever cut by George Benson as a leader – a cooker of a soul jazz set, recorded back when George was the guitarist in Jack McDuff's classic 60s quartet! The album's almost a McDuff Quartet one – since Jack's on Hammond and Red Holloway is on tenor – but the group's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Roland Kirk

Volunteered Slavery
Atlantic, 1969. Very Good+
Our favorite album ever from Roland Kirk – and a beautiful mix of two different sides of his genius! Side one's got Roland doing these crazy takes on late 60's pop cuts like "My Cherie Amour" and "Say a Little Prayer", plus his own "songs", done with soulful ... LP, Vinyl record album

O'Donel Levy

Dawn Of A New Day
Groove Merchant, 1973. Very Good+
Totally wicked guitar work from the mighty O'Donel Levy – easily one of the hippest talents to ever work for the Groove Merchant label! Levy's got a sound here that's a bit like Wes Montgomery on some of his late 60s sides, but also a fair bit funkier overall – a style that's steeped ... LP, Vinyl record album
