Soul Is Willing (black cover)

LP (Item 934750) Prestige, Early 60s — Condition: Very Good

One of the strongest albums that Shirley Scott ever cut with Stanley Turrentine – organ and tenor working together perfectly in a mellow soulful groove, sliding easily from track to track in a mode that still satisfies mightily over the years! The group is tight, soulful quartet, featuring Major Holley and Grasella Oliphant in the rhythm section, and titles include "Stolen Sweets", "The Soul Is Willing", "I Feel Alright", "Yes Indeed", "Remember" and "Secret Love".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Yellow & black label NJ pressing with Van Gelder stamp. Cover has light wear and some light aging. Vinyl has a short click on "Secret Love".)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.

Excellent stuff – and a classic concert performance recorded in Paris in 1964!

Prestige, 1972. Very Good+
Sweet electric grooving from Houston Person – an album that features his soulful tenor set in larger arrangements than on his earlier small combo Prestige sessions, in a mode that's a bit like some of the larger jazz sets coming out on CTI and Kudu at the time! Like Stanley Turrentine, who ... LP, Vinyl record album

Shirley Scott

Scottie Plays The Duke
Prestige, 1959. Very Good+

Red Holloway

Red Soul
Prestige, 1966. Near Mint-
Red Holloway caught in two different modes – one with organ, the other with piano – both plenty darn great! Side one features Holloway working with a very young Lonnie Smith on Hammond and George Benson on guitar – in a mode that's quite similar to the groove Red laid down with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Gene Ammons

Nice An' Cool
Prestige/Moodsville, 1961. Very Good-
Nice and cool, but not in a west coast way – and instead a set that's got Gene Ammons working some wonderfully soulful magic on a set of gentle ballads! The set's got a brilliant late nite sort of feel – one of those tenor albums that seems to sound even better in the space past ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jack McDuff & Gene Ammons

Brother Jack Meets The Boss
Prestige, 1962. Very Good
A classic early set from Jack McDuff – and a record that's very much in his own hands, despite the presence of Gene Ammons as a co-leader! The group's more of a McDuff one than an Ammons ensemble – and features the great Joe Dukes on drums, Eddie Diehl on guitar, and Harold Vick on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Oliver Nelson

Afro/American Sketches
Prestige, 1961. Good
One of the first larger concept albums from Oliver Nelson – and a set that really marked a strong step forward as a jazz arranger! The album is one long suite – as you might guess from the title – with righteous themes that deal not just with rising independence in postwar Africa ... LP, Vinyl record album

Art Of The Improvisers
Atlantic, Early 60s/1970. Near Mint-
Great lost work from Ornette Coleman – material recorded in New York and LA during the years 1959 through 1961 – never issued at the time, but pulled together in this wonderful package at the start of the 70s! Although not recorded as an official album, the record stands easily with ... LP, Vinyl record album

Miles Davis

Sketches Of Spain
Columbia, 1960. Near Mint-
A beautiful collaboration between Miles Davis and the great Gil Evans – and perhaps the most perfectly realized of all their projects! The album's got a wonderfully unified feel – as it begins with long compositions that have a distinct Spanish-tinge (and not a Latin-tinge, which is an ... LP, Vinyl record album
