LP, Vinyl record album

❔

Nothing fancy – but some great straight-ahead blowing from Stitt and Jug! The album's a quintet session, with John Houston piano, Buster Williams bass, and George Brown drums providing all the rhythm. But the real focus is on the twin-sax frontline – with Sitt taking up the alto on a few numbers, but mostly blowing tenor head to head with Jug. Recorded in 1961 during Jug's great year of contract-breaking – and issued later in the 60s by Prestige under a different title. Titles include "A Mess", "Water Jug", "New Blues Up & Down", "Red Sails In The Sunset", and "A Pair Of Red Pants".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Grey. label Argo pressing with deep groove. Cover is nice.)

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.

Gene Ammons & Sonny Stitt

Jug & Sonny (jug & corn cover)
Chess, Early 60s. Very Good
A nice little album – featuring some of the sides that Gene Ammons cut "off contract" for Chess/Argo during the early 60s, and ones that feature him paired with Sonny Stitt, his longtime partner in legendary tenor battles from the 50s. The two horns aren't really locked in combat ... LP, Vinyl record album
Argo, 1960. Very Good+
One of the tighter sessions you'll ever find by Milt Bucker, but still one that has him playing with the open stop style that makes the organ all vibrato-y and shimmery. The group features James Campbell on alto, Reggie Boyd on guitar, and Richard Evans on bass – and the titles include " ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lou Donaldson

Musty Rusty
Argo, 1965. Very Good+
A great mid 60s session by Lou Donaldson – a bridge between his earlier Blue Note recordings and his styles of the mid and late 60s, featuring an electric group with Billy Gardner on organ, Grant Green on guitar, Ben Dixon on drums, and Bill Hardman on trumpet. The tracks have the same tight ... LP, Vinyl record album

Milt Buckner

Mighty High
Argo, 1959. Very Good
Sweet and slow-burning organ from the great Milt Buckner – a really simple session overall, but one with lots of magical touches! Milt plays with a tone that's much lighter than a lot of his contemporaries on the Hammond – not as many tricks as Jimmy Smith, and perhaps more integrated ... LP, Vinyl record album
Argo, 1960s. Very Good+

Argo (UK), 1973. Near Mint-
A really inventive reading of Duke Ellington's famous suite – done with a hip early 70s British jazz spin, in a performance that features Norma Winstone on the vocal tunes – plus other work in the group from Kenny Wheeler and Harry Beckett on trumpets, Henry Lowther on trumpet and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Argo, 1961. Very Good
A rare session as a leader from drummer Red Holt – cut at a time when he was making waves with the Ramsey Lewis Trio, and years before his work in Young Holt Unlimited! The record's got a really playful feel that points the way towards directions Holt would take later – a mix of soul ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bill Perkins

Quietly There
Riverside/ABC, 1966/1970. Near Mint-
Amazing work from west coast saxophonist Bill Perkins – playing here in a mode that's quite different than his more famous 50s recordings! The style here is almost one you'd hear on late 60s A&M Records – definitely "quietly there", with a blend of Perkins' reeds and ... LP, Vinyl record album

Klaus Doldinger

Dig Doldinger
Philips, 1963. Very Good
Although he sucked monumentally during the 70s, when he was blowing his head off with his group Passport, Klaus Doldinger was actually a damn good soul jazz tenorist during the 60s – and he cut some great groovy LPs that were issued in the US, like this one from 1963. The record features ... LP, Vinyl record album

Walt Dickerson & Sun Ra

Visions
Steeplechase, 1978. Near Mint-
Walt Dickerson and Sun Ra are reunited – after only playing together on the seminal 60s album Impressions Of A Patch Of Blue! The session's a very spare one, in the typical mode of Dickerson's Steeplechase work of the late 70s – and most titles have Dickerson taking the main lead on ... LP, Vinyl record album
Black Saint (Italy), 1984. Near Mint-
A really bold step forward for David Murray – a seminal live recording that features one of the hippest big bands you'll ever hope to find! Murray really uses the date as a chance to express the full range of his musical talents – and often shows modes that are more traditional than ... LP, Vinyl record album
Columbia, 1972. Near Mint-
A funky fusion classic – the second Columbia set from this killer group of all-star players! The style's like the first Dreams album – a bit rock-influenced at times, but filled with jazzy instrumentation by players who include Randy Brecker on trumpet, Michael Brecker on saxes, Don ...
