LP (Item 8062) Prestige, 1972 — Condition: Near Mint-

One of Dexter's most solid albums on Prestige – and a great set cut at the Van Gelder studios with a rock-solid American lineup that includes Cedar Walton, Freddie Hubbard, Buster Williams, and Billy Higgins. The ensemble groove is a lot tighter than on some of Gordon's solo-heavy European sessions – and in a way, the record hearkens back to some of the greatness of the Blue Note days. Titles include "Milestones", "Scared To Be Alone", "We See", and "The Group".  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has some wear at the spine.)

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.

Prestige, 1968. Very Good+
A really great album from tenor genius Willis Jackson – a set that not only has plenty of his raw horn in the lead – but also features organ work by the great Trudy Pitts, guitar by Wild Bill Jennings, and conga by Victor Allende! Not only that, but the set's driven by some electric ... LP, Vinyl record album

Hampton Hawes

Northern Windows
Prestige, 1974. Very Good+
One of the best David Axelrod-assisted albums from the early 70s – a sweet batch of funky cuts with arrangements and backings handled by Axe, and loads of great keyboard lines from the legendary Hampton Hawes! The record really bubbles with the warm and soulful approach Axelrod was using at ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gene Ammons

My Way
Prestige, Early 70s. Near Mint-
Gene Ammons gets a great change here – blowing strongly amidst larger arrangements from Bill (William S?) Fisher – who serves things up almost in a Kudu/CTI mode, as larger arrangements envelope Jug's soulful tenor! There's a hip blacksploitation vibe on some tracks – especially ...

Gene Ammons

Got My Own
Prestige, 1973. Very Good
A more laidback set than usual from Ammons' early 70s stretch on Prestige – but a record that nicely gets back to that big-toned tenor sound he used often on ballads from earlier years! The combo mixes both electric piano and organ – the former from Hank Jones, the latter from Ernie ... LP, Vinyl record album

Soul Battle

This is the kind of battle we like to see!

Stanley Turrentine

Chip Off The Old Block
Blue Note, 1963. Very Good
A solidly soulful session from Stanley Turrentine – one of his few Blue Note dates in the company of organist Shirley Scott, and possibly the hardest-hitting of the bunch! The album's got a great added element in the front line – the trumpet of Blue Mitchell, which really rounds out ... LP, Vinyl record album

Doug & Jean Carn

Higher Ground
Ovation, 1976. Near Mint-
Soaring soul from the team of Doug and Jean Carn – he on the keyboards, she on the vocals – both working here with really righteous power! The album brings together some of the best moments from Doug's albums on Black Jazz – including "Little B's Poem", "The ... LP, Vinyl record album
