5.00 5

One of the few albums ever issued by female alto player Vi Redd – a really unique artist, and a greatly overlooked talent from the time! Vi's got a wonderfully warm approach – and she often sings in addition to playing alto sax – with this vocal style that's really great, and completely charming! There's a slight rasp to both Vi's horn and her voice – which gives the record a soulful presence that's undeniable – and that kind of unique feel that we might link with Trudy Pitts – not because the pair share an instrument, but because as female players, perhaps they were a bit more able to break free from the usual constraints. The track list includes a lot of lesser known tracks like "Yours", "This Love of Mine", and "Your Love is Like the Wind" – plus a Redd original, "Lady Soul".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Stellar stellar set by this great vibes player! Recorded with the same high quality as all the Ubiquity releases, and a loving tribute to a great player who hasn't had his due in many many years. At first, we thought "big deal, another Dave Pike record. It's new, and it's probably a lot ... CD
