Giants Of The Funk Tenor Sax

LP (Item 81098) Prestige, 1960s — Condition: Used
2LP Gatefold
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 5

Our only complaint about this set is that Prestige only saw fit to make it 2 LPs long, and as most of all of you know just as well as we do, the Prestige catalog runs deep with funky hornsmen! Most of these cats and the tracks they did choose to include need little or no introduction form us, so we'll just let the selection do all the talking: Gene Ammons "Hittin' The Jug" & "Chicago Breakdown", Sonny Stitt with Jack McDuff "Nother Fu'ther", Rusty Bryant "Red Eye Special" & "Soul Liberation", Willis Jackson "This'll Get To Ya" & "Tu'gether", Houston Person "Chains Of Love" & "Goodness", Johnny Griffin "Wade In The Water" and Stanley Turrentine "Walkin'".  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

We realize that there are many different interpretations of the standard grades used for pre-owned vinyl record albums & CD, so we thought we'd offer you the ones that we are working with, so you have an idea what we mean when we give the grade for a non-new item on our pages.

Used Vinyl Grades

Below are stated conditions for a used vinyl records at Dusty Groove. Grading for the cover should be assumed to be near (within a "+" or "-") the grading for the vinyl. If there is significant divergence from the condition of the vinyl, or specific flaws, these will be noted in the comments section of the item. However, please be aware that since the emphasis of this site is towards the music listener, our main concern is with the vinyl of any used item we sell. Additionally, please note that all of our records are graded visually; considering the volume of used vinyl we handle, it is impossible for us to listen to each record. If we spot any significant flaws, we make every attempt to listen through them and note how they play.

The following grading conditions apply to the vinyl component of an album or single:

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, 1977. Very Good+
A pivotal record for Patrice Rushen – a set that has her really tightening things up from her previous Prestige albums – heading much more towards the focused soul-drenched grooves of her Elektra Records years!

Sparks!
Prestige, 1970. Very Good+
A killer – one of the best from Prestige during the runaway classic years of the early 70s! Melvin Sparks is a genius guitarist, with a talent as rich as that of Grant Green, who's probably his most immediate precursor. He'd played in the groups of Lou Donaldson and Jack McDuff during the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Prestige, 1967. Very Good-
A weird one for Prestige, but a groovy one too. Billy Hawks sings and plays organ, with a groove that's in between jazz, blues, and deep soul. He's fronting a trio that includes a young Ivan "Boogaloo Joe" Jones on guitar, and the group plays a few instrumentals with some excellent ... LP, Vinyl record album

Night Hawk (Jazz Classics Series)
Prestige/Swingville, 1960. Very Good
Beautiful late work from Coleman Hawkins – mellow genius that wins us over time and time again over the years! The set's actually a twin-tenor outing – with both Hawk and Eddie Jockjaw Davis – the latter of whom, as proved with Johnny Griffin and others, is a perfect partner for ...
