5.00 5

About as close as you'll get to soul jazz with Oscar Peterson – and a very groovy set recorded with some good Latiny influences in the playing, and kind of a pop soul style in the arrangements! The core trio of Peterson on piano, Sam Jones on bass, and Louis Hayes on drums (a very soulful group already) is augmented by added timbales by Marshall Thompson and conga by Master Henry Gibson – great extra percussion that really makes the whole thing groove nicely! The album was recorded in Chicago, and has a sound that's very much in the best Cadet Records style of the time – filled with soulful groovers that include "Mas Que Nada", "Samba Sensitive", "Amanha", "Soulville Samba", "Samba De Orfeu", and "Call Me". (Cover has a cutout hole.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

A killer little set from Les McCann – one of his greatest records of the 60s, thanks to a fair bit of Latin Soul influences!

Way You Look Tonight
Solid State, Late 60s. Very Good- Gatefold
Damn, Jimmy's always great! Even in a session like this – the kind of obscure, almost "off the books" sort of album, Jimmy's still giving 110% on the Hammond – grooving with an unnamed group in a mode that recalls the fiercely swinging sound of Groove Holmes at his best in ...

Is It In
Atlantic, 1974. Near Mint-
One of Eddie's groovier Varitone albums, and a record that has a very electric sound to it! At times, Eddie's electric sax is so off-beat that you'd think he was playing a synthesizer instead of a sax, but in true Harris form, he always keeps it funky, and even the weird sounds have a great groove ...
