Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 5

One of Jimmy's most classic albums for Blue Note – and a key example of why his solo skills on the organ surpassed most of his contemporaries! The record's got a stripped-down trio group of Jimmy, guitarist Quentin Warren, and drummer Donald Bailey – working through mostly familiar numbers, but taking them to places previously unheard of! The best example of this is the album's amazing version of "When Johnny Comes Marching Home" – a classic groover that takes the old snoozer and pumps it up with a snapping rhythm, then features Jimmy really working the whole thing over with an incredible solo! A similar format's applied to numbers that include "Mack the Knife", "Night in Tunisia", "What's New", and "Makin Whoopee" – and the album soars with an easy groove that's every bit of Jimmy at his best! (63rd St mono pressing with deep groove, RVG stamp, and "ear". Cover has some wear, a center split in the bottom seam, a bit of aging, a sticker on the front and a name in pen on the back. Label has a sticker. Vinyl plays with some crackles and clicks.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
