Red Soul

LP (Item 7053) Prestige, 1966 — Condition: Near Mint-

Red Holloway caught in two different modes – one with organ, the other with piano – both plenty darn great! Side one features Holloway working with a very young Lonnie Smith on Hammond and George Benson on guitar – in a mode that's quite similar to the groove Red laid down with Jack McDuff – short, tight tracks that have plenty of playful changes – and very mean soloing from Holloway on tenor. Side two features a more acoustic group – still with Benson on guitar, but also Norman Simmons on piano, sometimes in an earthy soul jazz mode, sometimes in a more lyrical style as well. Benson's got that wonderful approach to rhythm on most of these numbers – swinging a groove that's quite unique, and filled with great little twists and turns! Titles include "Big Fat Lady", "Good & Groovy", "Making Tracks", "The Regulars", and "Movin On".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Green label pressing. Cover has a cutout notch.)

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.

Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers

Child's Dance
Prestige, 1972. Near Mint-
Seminal Art Blakey material from the early 70s – a real change from his 60s vibe on Blue Note, in a style that really opens up to a host of more spiritual touches! The album's a counterpart to the classic Buhania set, also issued on Prestige at the time – and like that record, this one ... LP, Vinyl record album

Coleman Hawkins

Hawk Relaxes
Prestige/Moodsville, 1961. Near Mint-
The Hawk Relaxes, but never lets himself go – and a set like this is a great illustration of the gentle genius that made so many later Coleman Hawkins records so great! The relaxed setting for this record is a perfect setting for Hawkins to open up and stretch out – working his tenor ... 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

Stan Getz

Quartets
Prestige, 1949/1950. Near Mint-
Groundbreaking early work from Stan Getz – a 12" LP that compiles earlier recordings made for Prestige at the end of the 40s – all of which are a perfect exercise in tone, timing, and balance! The setting is simple – quartets with either Al Haig or Tony Aless on piano – ... 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
Blue Note, 1970. Near Mint-
Pivotal work from Duke Pearson – a brilliant set that perfectly sums up all the criss-crossing of styles he was working on in the late 60s – and comes up with a wonderful blend of electric jazz, Brazilian rhythms, and just a touch of 70s soul! Pearson plays some sweet Fender Rhodes on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Doug Carn

Infant Eyes
Black Jazz, 1971. Very Good+
An undisputed 70s soul jazz classic – and arguably the best album that Doug Carn ever cut for the Black Jazz label! The set is a masterpiece of spiritual jazz – with Carn on keyboards setting up the groove, and wife Jean singing some incredible vocals – very different than her ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rahsaan Roland Kirk

Bright Moments
Atlantic, 1973. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Great double album live set with Roland leading a tight group through a long and varied set of material, all of which showcases the odd goofy sound of his music, and his offbeat approach to more familiar tracks. He talks a bit, makes the odd joke about being blind, and never ceases to amaze with ... LP, Vinyl record album
United Artists, 1962. Near Mint-
Bossa nova from Herbie Mann – one of our favorite albums ever from the famous flute player – cut for United Artists, and a one-off session that's arguably better than most of his Atlantic work of the time! There's a groove here that's undeniable – a sense of swing that grabs us ... LP, Vinyl record album
