Prestige 16000 series

4 posts in this topic

Prestige only released a handful of records in its 16000 series. And they don't seem to have any unifying characteristics.

16001: Gumbo! (Pony Poindexter, Booker Ervin) [6/27/63]
16002: Trumpet Giants (Fats Navarro a.o.) [same as 8296]
16003: Eastern Moods (Ahmed Abdul-Malik) [6/3/63]
16004: I'm Shooting High (Gildo Mahones) [2/4/63, 8/15/63, 9/3/63]
16005: Look Out! (Johnny Hammond Smith) [not issued; same as 8288]
16006: Soul Street (Jimmy Forrest) [not issued; same as 8293]
16007: Dameronia (Tadd Dameron) [reissue of 7037]
16008: Clifford Brown Memorial (Tadd Dameron a.o.) [reissue of 7055]
16009: Trotting (Zoot Sims) [reissue of 7026]
16010: not issued?
16011: Ezz-thetic (Lee Konitz a.o.) [reissue of 8295]

Anyone know the rationale behind?

I have really many from the 7000 series, and when I was a teenie there very many double albums I think it is 24000 series, but later anyway had them all on 7000 series. Never heard about 16000 series. But I must admit almost all I have is the typical Prestige Rooster of the 50s, Miles, Monk, MJQ, Trane, Rollins, Jackie McLean, Dameron, Brownie....

There weren't very many 1600s, and most of them were reissues of the 7000 and 8000 series - I'm trying to understand why there was a 16000 series at all.
