Soul Summit

LP (Item 35097) Prestige, 1962 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 5

A definite soul summit for the time – with 3 top-shelf players in the lead, all getting plenty of room to do their thing! Both Gene Ammons and Sonny Stitt are on tenor in the front, working with the respect and confidence they'd forged together on other co-led sessions from the time – and Jack McDuff's a great addition to the set, playing Hammond with his newly-lean tone, and really helping things move along nicely. Drummer Charlie Persip has a nicely booming style here – one that gets the group out of the box from the get-go, and McDuff's handling all the bass work on the organ, which always makes for a tight rhythmic romp! Most tunes are in that great raw Prestige mode from the old days, as you'd guess by titles like "Tubby", "Dumplin", and "Shuffle Twist" – alongside other numbers that include "Sleeping Susan" and "Out In The Cold Again".

Soul jazz organ with big band? It's been done – and never better than on this set – which features Brother Jack's classic quartet – with George Benson, Red Hollway, and Joe Dukes – next to the the screamin' orchestrations of a hip Benny Golson! Golson leads a crack band ... LP, Vinyl record album
