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 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 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 ...

The Three Sounds were pianist Gene Harris, bassist Andy Simpkins, and drummer Bill Dowdy, and they swung in-the-pocket. Although they were not as acclaimed as the Modern Jazz Quartet, the Ramsey Lewis Trio, and other marquee combos, their streamlined sound bridged Count Basie and bebop into a modern yet grooving sensibility. This two-CD set features the trio’s entire 1960 Blue ...

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 Steve Huey One of the biggest hit jazz LPs of the post-rock & roll era, Eddie Harris’ Exodus to Jazz seemed to come completely out of left field. It was the debut album by a previously unknown artist from an under-publicized scene in Chicago, and it was released on the primarily R&B-oriented Vee Jay label, which had originally ...

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 ...
