Living Soul

LP (Item 7672) Prestige, 1966 — Condition: Good
Tight trio material from the legendary Richard Groove Holmes – caught live at Count Basie's Nightclub in Harlem, working hard and heavy with a trio that features Gene Edwards on guitar and George Randall on drums! This live set is the kind of record that beautifully shows why Groove was so popular with live audiences in the 60s – because he can burn all night long, with no tricks, no gimmicks, just a straight-on soul jazz groove and some amazing work on the Hammond! Most cuts are pretty long – and there's some great groovers on here like Gerald Wilson's "Blues For Yna Yna", a cover of "Girl From Ipanema", Jimmy Heath's "Gemini", and Groove's own "Living Soul".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Good

  • A record that you'd buy to play, cheap, but which you wouldn't buy for collecting.
  • Will have marks across all parts of the playing surface, and will most likely play with surface noise throughout. May have some other significant flaws, such as residue, or a track that skips.
  • In most cases, a poor quality copy of a very difficult to find record.

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.

Willis Jackson

Blue Gator
Prestige, 1959. Near Mint-
A massive early Prestige set from tenorist Willis Jackson – and just the kind of record that set him firmly in the soul jazz camp for the 60s! By the time of the set, Jackson had already won plenty of fame for his R&B-tinged work – but here, he stretches out a bit more, and really ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, 1953. Near Mint-
A nice album compiling of some of the less-collected work by Clifford Brown – 1953 recordings done in Europe for the Metronome and Vogue labels, recorded with a great larger group. Sides feature Brown working with Quincy Jones, Gigi Gryce, Anthony Ortega, Juimmy Cleveland, and others ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gene Ammons

Angel Eyes
Prestige, 1965. Very Good
A stone classic from Gene Ammons – and a record that introduced his talents to a whole new audience in the 60s! The album's a more laidback one than some of Jug's more hard-blown honkers – as you might guess from his hit rendition of the ballad in the title – and the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, Late 40s. Very Good+
It's no secret that Don Byas made some of his best recordings in Europe, not America – and this tasty little set is great support of that fact! The set features numbers that Byas cut in Paris at the end of the 40s – working with a mixture of American and Parisian players that includes ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, Early 50s. Very Good+
Great small group work from this excellent guitarist – with John Wilson on trumpet and Hall Overton on piano! LP, Vinyl record album

Phil Woods

Pairing Off
Prestige, 1956. Near Mint-
The "pair" here is Phil Woods and Gene Quill – both blowing beautifully on alto sax, with that sharp edge and deep tone that made both players a real standout in the 50s scene! The Woods/Quill mix has been documented elsewhere, but the sound here is rawer than some of those other ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jack McDuff

Honeydripper
Prestige, 1961. Near Mint-
One of the records that put a young Brother Jack McDuff on the map – and a perfect example of the rougher R&B roots that first emerged in his early work on the Hammond! The session's got a much more down-n-dirty feel than some of McDuff's tighter 60s quartet work – and offers a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, 1956. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
Prestige reissued this record in 1975 and it includes the whole of Saxophone Colossus as well as parts of Sonny Boy, Sonny Rollins Plays For Bird and Sonny Rollins Plus Four all from 1956. Rollins plays tenor sax and is joined by a stellar bunch of musicians such as Doug Watkins on bass, Max Roach ... LP, Vinyl record album

Thelonious Monk

Genius Of Thelonious Monk
Prestige, 1954. Very Good+
There were three sets of musicians that played with Monk for these recordings and they include Sonny Rollins on tenor sax, Percy Heath on bass, Art Blakey on drums and Julius Watkins on French horn. The tracks are "The Way You Look Tonight", "I Want To Be Happy", "Work" ... LP, Vinyl record album

Miles Davis

Sketches Of Spain
Columbia, 1960. Near Mint-
A beautiful collaboration between Miles Davis and the great Gil Evans – and perhaps the most perfectly realized of all their projects! The album's got a wonderfully unified feel – as it begins with long compositions that have a distinct Spanish-tinge (and not a Latin-tinge, which is an ... LP, Vinyl record album
Riverside, 1958. Near Mint-
One of Chet Baker's most classic albums of the 50s – a record that features both vocals and strong trumpet solos – all from a time when Baker was one of the hottest things going in jazz! The album's different from records from previous years, in that it moves Baker from LA to New York ... LP, Vinyl record album
