Odell Brown Plays Otis Redding

LP (Item 8595) Cadet, 1969 — Condition: Very Good+

A great step forward for Chicago organist Odell Brown – and maybe a hint of the influence he'd have on the world of 70s soul to come! Odell plays organ on a set of Otis Redding classics – in a tribute to the recently-passed Stax Records singer, but done with some great funk and soul charts from arranger Gene Barge – who almost takes Brown into territory of some of the Reuben Wilson records at the time! Other players aren't listed, but you can bet that they're a hip Chicago lineup – and titles include a funky version of "Hard To Handle", plus "Let Me Come Home", "Any Ole Way", and "Respect".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original pressing! Cover has some staining and waviness.)

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.

Bobby Bryant

Swahili Strut
Cadet, Late 60s. Very Good+
An excellent bit of funky stuff from LA trumpeter Bobby Bryant. The set was recorded for Cadet in LA, features tight arangements by Bryant, and a lot of nice long cuts that have a bit more of a groove than some of his other recordings (although most of them are pretty great). Tracks include " ... LP, Vinyl record album

Woody Herman

Woody
Cadet, 1970. Very Good+
The most obscure of Woody's albums for Cadet – and a bit different than the other two! The album still features one side of upbeat groovy tunes – recorded with Richard Evans in a style that's a mix of big band funk and Cadet Records soul – and which show Woody to be a lot hipper ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bunky Green

Playin' For Keeps
Cadet, 1966. Very Good+
Tremendous work from an alto player with a very unique conception – a player who was unlike Charlie Parker, Sonny Stitt, or some of his precursors on the instrument – and instead really took off in bold new directions, like Lou Donaldson or fellow Chicagoan Sonny Cox in the mid 60s! ... LP, Vinyl record album

John Klemmer

Involvement
Cadet, 1967. Near Mint-
Beautiful early work from John Klemmer – one of the most under-rated talents of his generation, and a great player who frequently gets overlooked because of his later, smoother work. This album is Klemmer's first – recorded with a soulful Chicago tenor sound, touched with some of the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lou Donaldson

Sweet Lou
Blue Note, 1974. Sealed
Sweet Lou, but funky Lou too – a perfect blend of modes that makes for one of Donaldson's last great albums for Blue Note! The set's got some fuller arrangements from Horace Ott – but given Ott's work in the indie soul world during the 60s, there's still a nice edge to the record too ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jimmy McGriff & Richard Groove Holmes

Giants Of The Organ Come Together
Groove Merchant, 1973. Near Mint-
Twin organs back to back – and a heck of a hard-wailing set from Groove Holmes and Jimmy McGriff! The album cooks from the very first note – and features long tunes that open up with the same sort of solo-heavy approach that you'd get on Holmes' Prestige albums of the 60s – very ... LP, Vinyl record album

Miles Davis

Kind Of Blue
Columbia, 1959. Sealed
What can we say? This is the ultimate Miles Davis album – the one that includes so many songs that we've heard way too much in Starbucks, in retail stores, or at a friend's house who claims to be a "jazz expert", but is really a yuppie dilettante. Yet somehow, over all the years, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stan Getz & Astrud Gilberto

Getz Au Go Go
Verve, Mid 60s. Very Good+
A beautiful dreamy album that's quite different from the classic Getz/Gilberto collaboration – but which also shares much of that set's lyrical beauty! This album was recorded live, in 1964, when Stan Getz was playing with his quartet that included Gary Burton on vibes – an incredible ... LP, Vinyl record album

Monty Alexander

Love & Sunshine
MPS, 1974. Very Good+
One of those wonderful Monty Alexander albums from the 70s – recorded for the MPS label, and with a very different vibe than some of his later albums in the US! There's a warmth, flow, and soul here that comes through instantly – a way of fitting the piano right in with the rhythms, so ... LP, Vinyl record album

Lou Donaldson

Sophisticated Lou
Blue Note, 1973. Sealed
A really unique album for Lou Donaldson – especially for his early 70s run on Blue Note! The session lives up to its title by offering up a batch of soulful ballads from Lou – tunes that really focus on his sweet lines on alto, yet set amidst some larger backing arranged by Wade Marcus ...

John Lewis, Bill Perkins & Others

2 Degrees East – 3 Degrees West (60s cover)
Pacific Jazz, 1956. Near Mint- Gatefold
A classic meeting of east and west coast artists of the third stream jazz sphere of the late 50s – one that features the team of John Lewis and Percy Heath of the Modern Jazz Quartet working alongside the west coast tenor of Bill Perkins, plus the guitar of Jim Hall and drums of Chico ... LP, Vinyl record album

Edwin Starr

War & Peace
Gordy, 1970. Very Good+
A real breakout album for Edwin Starr – and the kind of full-on set that really helped give his music a bold new focus! Starr had already scored nicely on some playful tracks from the Motor City scene of the late 60s – but here, he emerges as a singer with a lot more depth than before ... LP, Vinyl record album
