Brothers

LP (Item 79436) Prestige, 1949/1952 — Condition: Very Good+

A classic Prestige LP that compiles earlier sides by Getz – four tunes from a 1949 session recorded under Stan Getz & His Four Brothers, with Zoot Sims, Al Cohn, Allen Eager, and Brew Moore – all blowing with Getz in a real "brothers-like" sax section sound. The remaining 4 tracks feature Stan and Al Cohn, working in a 1952 session with Geroge Wallington and Kai Winding – on some nice light boppish tracks that have that sweet smooth Getz tone firmly in place. The album's got a great Don Martin cover, and titles include "Battleground", "Five Brothers", "Four & One Moore", "Red Door", and "Zoot Case".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Blue label pressing, with RVG stamp. Cover has some water staining and flaking in a bottom corner, and some overall light wear.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight 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.

Stan Getz

Sweet Rain
Verve, 1967. Very Good Gatefold
One of Stan Getz's greatest records – no fooling! This gem often gets overlooked because it was issued in the years between Stan's bossa recordings and his later pop experiments – but trust us, it's a totally solid jazz album, with a quality level that was hardly ever matched by Getz ... LP, Vinyl record album
Verve, 1962. Very Good Gatefold
An overlooked gem from the Verve bossa years – a session that features the sweet tenor sax work of Stan Getz, alongside some swinging bossa arrangements from the great Gary McFarland! Given the strength of Gary's own work for Verve at the time, it's no surprise that he's a perfect ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gene Ammons

Greatest Hits
Prestige, 1960s. Near Mint-
While it's tough to think of a jazz player having "hits" – given the low sales of jazz albums, even in the 60s – it's still the case that Ammons' sound was so strong, and so soulful, he had plenty of fans in the crossover market for some of his bigger recordings. The album ... LP, Vinyl record album

Rusty Bryant

Rusty Bryant Returns
Prestige, 1969. Very Good+
A real smoker of a session – Rusty Bryant's first comeback album of the jazz funk years, done in a mode that virtually set the tone for other Prestige sessions of the time! Rusty's working here on alto sax, in a mode that's clearly inspired by the Lou Donaldson sessions of the time on Blue ... LP, Vinyl record album

Don Patterson

Opus De Don
Prestige, 1968. Very Good+
A real cooker from the great Hammond hero Don Patterson – a set that adds in the trumpet of Blue Mitchell and tenor of Junior Cook – in addition to Don's core trio of Pat Martino on guitar and Billy James on drums! The addition of horns takes the material places that Don's earlier ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, 1948. Sealed
A legendary live set from Dizzy Gillespie – recorded over in Paris, but featuring a very hip large ensemble! The group includes extra trumpet from Dave Burns, trombone from Ted Kelly and William Shepherd, alto from John Brown, tenor from George Nicholas, baritone from Cecil Payne, piano from ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige/Craft, 1957/1958. Near Mint-
Strong work from John Coltrane's early years as a leader – even if the album is sort of a collection of tracks that Trane recorded for Prestige, instead of a discreetly separate session! Side one features Coltrane's tenor in a spare setting with Earl May on bass and Art Taylor on drums ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, 1961. Near Mint-
Classic set of European recordings – made by Dolphy in 1961, before the fateful 1964 European tour that would later claim his life. The group features Swedish piano giant Bent Axen, plus a rhythm section that includes Erik Moseholm on bass and Jorn Elniff on drums. Like most Dolphy ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gene Ammons

Brasswind
Prestige, 1973. Very Good+
Gene Ammons gets the Cannonball Adderley treatment – as he blows funky solos over an album arranged and conducted by David Axelrod! Brasswind has a larger, fuller funky sound than some of his earlier work for Prestige – and it works very well! The overall sound's a bit smoother, but ... LP, Vinyl record album

Eddie Daniels

First Prize
Prestige, 1967. Very Good+
The first album by Eddie Daniels – and loads better than most of his later work! About half the tracks feature Daniels playing clarinet, which is OK – but the best ones have him on tenor, working away in a lyrical modal mode that's really great. The rhythm's by a trio that includes ... LP, Vinyl record album

Teddy Edwards

Nothin But The Truth!
Prestige, 1967. Very Good
Great stuff – and one of the groovier Teddy Edwards sessions from the 60s! The group's a sextet – with Walter Davis piano, Paul Chambers bass, Billy Higgins drums, Phil Orlando guitar, and Montego Joe on congas and bongos. The band grooves in a soul jazz vamping mode – darkly ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, 1966. Very Good+
Excellent stuff – a mid 60s collection of some of Jack's earlier work for Prestige, with a focus on the kind of jukebox-busting tracks that made him a legend right out of the box! Tracks are lean, mean, and with the kind of gutbucket organ groove that made Jack one of the best of the 60s ... LP, Vinyl record album
