Saying Something

LP (Item 82742) Prestige, Late 50s — Condition: Used
2LP Gatefold
(€- || £- || ¥-) (approx.)

Excellent hard bop sides from Red Garland, originally recorded for the Prestige label and issued on the albums High Pressure, Dig It and Soul Burnin'. Featuring either Donald Byrd and John Coltrane or Richard Williams and Oliver Nelson up front and George Joyner and Arthur Taylor or Peck Morrison and Charlie Persip in the rhythm section, these sides crackle with a wonderful inventiveness that reveals why Garland played alongside 'Trane onso many classic sides from this era. 9 tracks in all, most nice lengthy takes where everyone gets a chance to stretch out, including "Two Bass Hit", "Billie's Bounce", "Solitude", "Lazy Mae" and "On Green Dolphin Street". (Cover has a promo stamp & light wear.)  © 1996-2017, 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.

A great session from Red Garland – recorded in the early 80s with support from Ahmad Jamal's old trio-mates – Jamil Nassar on bass and Frank Gant on drums!

Red Garland's Piano
Prestige, 1957. Good+
Red Garland's piano was certainly humming strong at the time of this session – as Red's trio were one of the key rhythm components of many Prestige albums of the late 50s, but also a real starring act on their own! The album's got a laidback, almost mellow feel that's a bit different from ... LP, Vinyl record album
Halleloo-y-all
Prestige, 1963. Very Good+
Red's usual trio bag is given a bit of a soul jazz twist (or perhaps we should say "a bit more of a soul jazz twist" since Red's always pretty darn soulful!) – in this set of tracks that has a slight gospel piano sound to it, and which also features Red playing organ on one track! ...

Truth!
Prestige, 1970. Very Good
One of Houston Person's first forays into the jazz funk sound that other Prestige Records players were picking up at the time – a sweet little set with some nicely extended tunes! The groove here is a bit harder than some of Person's previous soul jazz sets – with some tightly snapping ... LP, Vinyl record album
Prestige, 1963/1964. Very Good+ 2LP Gatefold
Two of Booker Ervin's best albums ever, issued together in one 2LP set with great notes by Stanley Crouch, and an extra track that was issued elsewhere! The group on all sides features Ervin with Jaki Byard piano, Richard Davis bass, and Alan Dawson drums – and the longish tracks are some of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Gil Evans & Ten
Prestige, 1957. Very Good+
Fantastic early work from Gil Evans – emerging here in this early session as an already far-thinking modernist. The tracks are shorter and less ambitious than some of Evans' work on Impulse, but the group is excellent – and even in a shorter format, the conception of the work still ... LP, Vinyl record album
Opus De Funk
Prestige, 1965. Very Good
Not funk, as the title might imply – but a set that's still plenty darn soulful overall – thanks to great Hammond from Johnny Smith, and some wicked vibes from the legendary Freddie McCoy! The set's one of the first Prestige sessions for McCoy – an artist who's never fully gotten ... LP, Vinyl record album
Black Talk!
Prestige, 1970. Very Good
A pivotal album in the development of the use of the Hammond organ in jazz – and Charles Earland's first exposure to a large audience! Durign the 60s, Charles was bumping around the Philly scene quite a bit – and recorded some small group indie sides that first gave a glimpse of his ... LP, Vinyl record album
Boss Tenor
Prestige, 1960. Near Mint-
A soul jazz classic from Gene Ammons – the kind of session that easy made him "boss" on tenor – with a tone and conception that few other players could touch! The set is done in a style that's laidback, but never too loose – bouncing along in that "with conga" ... LP, Vinyl record album
