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 ...

Review by Stephen Cook Backed by some of the top bop players of the day, Al Cohn stretches out here for a program heavy with up-tempo swingers. Cut in two sessions during 1950 and 1953, Cohn’s Tones finds the usually more mellow tenor great feeding off the driving drum work of both Tiny Kahn and Max Roach. Besides the ballad ...

Review by Matt Collar A project long in the making, Across the Tracks finds tenor saxophonist Scott Hamilton pairing with journeyman blues guitarist Duke Robillard for a set of burnished lesser-known standards, ballads, and blues. As Rhode Island natives, Hamilton and Robillard crossed paths early on in their careers, with the younger Hamilton drawing inspiration for his own straight-ahead jazz ...

Review by Myles Boisen Here’s another must for sax instrumental buffs, with rare wax by Texas tenor Clifford Scott and balladeer Lynn Hope. You and a few million others heard Scott on Bill Doggett’s classic “Honky Tonk”; here he is joined by organist Hank Marr, Charles Brown on piano, and other session cookers for five solid shufflin’ sides. Lynn Hope ...

Review by Richard S. Ginell As specifically indicated by the album’s title, the title tune’s bluesy cast, and Sweet Lou Donaldson’s own determined liner notes, this CD aims to strike a blow for soul-jazz, a once-popular, then-maligned idiom newly returned from exile. That it does — with no frills, no apologies, and an idiomatic supporting cast. For Donaldson, it was ...

A pesar de la estrecha relación que mantendría con el bebop unos años más ...

Editorial Review: Four great tenor-saxs share this álbum. Julián DASH : His ñame cannot be parted from the one of Erskine HAWKINS Orchestra, the star which he was for more than 15 years. Warm, mellow, glamorous sound, extreme musicianship, easy swing, his solos are fully good-natured and fluent. He is a very agreable-to-listen-to musician. In his four selections recorded in ...

Editorial Reviews Second installment in this four volume series from the celebrated jazzmen with deep Blues roots, a prolific musical team with exquisite chemistry. Volume Two includes the two complete albums Joe’s Blues and Wings & Things, in which guitarist Grant Green plays with the two masters. Lonehill.

Review by Richie Unterberger Just the first paragraph of the liner notes to this CD is enough to make you wonder why Herb Hardesty isn’t in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in the sideman category, as he played saxophone on numerous Fats Domino classics including “I’m Walkin’,” “Blue Monday,” and “The Fat Man” (as well as Lloyd Price’s ...

Charlie Singleton was a New York City-based saxophonist and bandleader who worked in a jump blues/R&B vein during the late ’40s and early ’50s. During his tenure with Atlas Records; one of the first New York based, Black owned independent record labels of the early fifties, Charlie recorded a number of highly influential jump blues instrumentals and also backed many ...

Review by Richard S. Ginell Even though Desmond was kidding when he described himself as the world’s slowest alto player, this record bears out the kernel of truth within the jest. Here, Desmond set out to make a record of love songs and torch ballads, so the tempos are very slow to medium, the mood is of wistful relaxation, and ...

Never Let Me Go is the eighth album by jazz saxophonist Stanley Turrentine recorded for the Blue Note label and performed by Turrentine with Shirley Scott, Major Holley, Ray Barretto and Al Harewood, with Sam Jones and Clarence Johnston replacing Holley, Barretto and Harewood on two tracks.
