Lockin' Horns

LP (Item 6880) Muse, 1981 — Condition: Very Good

A Texas tenor takes on one of Chicago's mightiest reedmen! Worth it for the presence of Freeman alone (only a handful of recordings exist of the man), this live date from '78 features Gator and Von fronting a heavy, heavy band with Carl Wilson, Yusef Ali, and Joe(as in "Boogaloo") Jones. Screamin' shouts and bluesy honks drive numbers like "Pow!" and "Troubled Times", while the 2 turn down the flame and burn slowly on ballads like "Shadow of Your Smile". The real highlight, though, is a great take on "The Man I Love", done club-style, using the track as a perfect platform for both players to riff in bop-heavy style!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has some wear, aging, light staining along the spine and some pen.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Nothing Butt
Muse, 1980. Very Good
A nice return to the soul jazz style of Willis' years at Prestige – after cutting a few too-smooth albums for bigger labels during the 70s!

Headed & Gutted
Muse, 1974. Very Good+
The date's a bit late, but this is a nice groover from Willis, with a strong jazzy sound, and organ by Mickey Tucker and guitar by Pat Martino.

Muse, 1979. Very Good+
An overlooked Hammond slammer from Charles Earland – cut at a time when he was working on more electric keyboards for other labels.

Teddy Edwards

Feelin's
Muse, 1974. Very Good
A great 70s comeback album from tenorist Teddy Edwards – done after a number of years away from the studio, but with a rock-solid sound that may well be his classics from the 60s! Teddy's tone is amazing on the record – more laidback and confident than on his earlier albums, and a lot ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hard swingin' British jazz, issued in the US during a brief period when Riverside/Jazzland was toying with import titles.

Adams Apple
Black Jazz, 1974. Sealed
The last album in a legendary run of music from keyboardist Doug Carn – his final album for the Black Jazz label, and a set that pushes even farther than his previous efforts!

Colpix, Early 60s. Good

Pacific Jazz, 1966. Good Gatefold
One of the Jazz Crusaders' classic funky live sets from the 60's, recorded live at the Lighthouse, where there talents were slowly becoming the stuff of legend.
