Review by Scott Yanow This somewhat obscure date by the great jazz harmonica player Toots Thielemans also features the leader playing some fine guitar (most notably on “Lonesome Road”) and taking one of his first whistling solos on “Brother John.” With pianist Ray Bryant, bassist Tom Bryant and drummer Oliver Jackson completing the quartet, Thielemans is in excellent form introducing ...

Good Deal is a typically fine record from the Three Sounds, who were beginning to hit their stride when this session was recorded in May of 1959. Like most of their records, it’s laidback – even when the group works a swinging tempo, there’s a sense of ease that keeps the mood friendly, relaxed and mellow. Balancing standards like “Satin ...

Review by Scott Yanow This Yazoo LP has many rather rare acoustic guitar performances. Carl Kress, a great chordal player, is heard on ten duets with fellow guitarist Tony Mottola in 1941, a couple of hot numbers with Dick McDonough (1934’s “Danzon” and “I’ve Got a Feeling You’re Fooling” from 1936) and two 1939 solos. In addition the seven-string guitar ...

Review by Michael Erlewine Just what it says. The queen of the Hammond organ (along with Henry Grimes (b) and Otis Finch (d)) plays compositions by the funk-master himself, Horace Silver. Included are “Senor Blues” and “The Preacher.” Tracklist A1 Senor Blues A2 Moon Ray A3 Sister Sadie B1 Doodlin’ B2 The Preacher B3 Strollin’ Credits Bass – Henry Grimes ...

Review by Lindsay Planer Kirk’s Work, Rahsaan Roland Kirk’s third long-player, teams him up with organist “Brother” Jack McDuff for Kirk’s most soulful post-bop set to date. His unorthodox performance style incorporates the polyphonies of a tenor sax, flute, manzello, and stritch. (The latter instrument is Kirk’s own modification of a second-generation B-flat soprano sax.) This contributes to the unique ...

Review by Michael G. Nastos As an originator of the initial soul-funk movement of the ’60s when he was with Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers, Golson is eminently qualified to funkify jazz and R&B-flavored instrumental music. Nat Adderley plays cornet alongside Golson’s tenor in this, one of his last recordings before he passed away. Always fresh and deep in the groove ...

Biography Putte Wickman was born on September 10, 1924, in the Swedish town of Falun. He learned the clarinet, and by the time he left school he was ready for a professional career in Sweden. When he started out, bebop was just becoming the rage, and he adapted quite easily. He performed with Simon Brehm and Charlie Norman for a ...

Review by Scott Yanow Most of organist Shirley Scott’s records in the 1960s featured her husband, tenor saxophonist Stanley Turrentine, so this trio effort with bassist Ron Carter and drummer Jimmy Cobb was a change of pace. As usual, Scott features an off-the-wall tune (“What The World Needs Now Is Love”) in her repertoire, along with standards (including “On A ...

Review by Scott Yanow Although bassist Ray Drummond is the leader of this trio set, he shares the spotlight quite evenly with pianist Hank Jones and drummer Billy Higgins. Drummond contributed two originals (including a tribute piece to Higgins) but otherwise the repertoire is comprised of jazz standards including “Things Ain’t What They Used to Be,” “Whisper Not,” “Love Walked ...

Biography A reliable cool-toned guitarist who was on many sessions through the years despite never becoming a household name, Mundell Lowe picked up early experience during 1936-1940 playing Dixieland in New Orleans and country music in Nashville. He toured with Jan Savitt (1942), Ray McKinley (1945-1947), Mary Lou Williams (1947-1949), Red Norvo, and Ellis Larkins. In 1950, he became a ...

Review by Scott Yanow For this CD reissue, pianist Billy Taylor is features on eight songs with his trio of 1954 (which included bassist Earl May and drummer Percy Brice); the four originals (which alternate with standards) were all dedicated to disc jockeys of the time. The trio was pretty tight with Taylor in the lead and, although boppish, it ...

En este álbum Grant se inclina hacia el blues y el funky, lo cual puede decepcionar a su fans por abandonar en parte su estilo netamente jazzístico. En mi caso trato de escuchar el disco desde la perpectiva de la época, no olvidemos que los buenos músicos en general buscan siempre nuevos sonidos, otros enfoques a su estilo y en ...

Jimmy Smith did not invent the organ. This is a fact. Long before his arrival, the instrument had been the vehicle of countless memorable performances. Word to Fats Waller. But as with anything, there are architects and then there are innovators. I prescribe unto Smith the latter. Anyone can learn to play the organ, but few can extend it beyond ...

Biography Jimmy Smith wasn’t the first organ player in jazz, but no one had a greater influence with the instrument than he did; Smith coaxed a rich, grooving tone from the Hammond B-3, and his sound and style made him a top instrumentalist in the 1950s and ’60s, while a number of rock and R&B keyboardists would learn valuable lessons ...
