Sal Salvador All Star Quartet —
JuicyLucy ... LP Beehive, 1979. Near Mint- ...
Out Of Stock
A great return to form for guitarist Sal Salvador – a player who didn't always get that much time in the spotlight in the 70s, until a big wave of fresh exposure from the Beehive label! Sal got his start in the Stan Kenton group, where he learned a great sense of color and phrasing – but his approach here is much more down to earth, as he plays in a relaxed combo with Billy Taylor on piano, Art Davis on bass, and Joe Morello on drums! Some tracks are nice and long – with superb solos from Sal and Billy – and titles include "Opus De Funk", "Northern Lights", "JuicyLucy", and "Tune For Two". LP, Vinyl record album
The second album recorded by altoist Jesse Davis at Smalls in New York, and a set that's every bit as great as the first – like that one, a record in a setting that really seems to set Davis on fire at a level that's different than some of his studio recordings! Tracks are long, and Davis is wonderful on his solos – very expressive, almost blowing the instrument like some tenorist from years back – and getting superb accompaniment from Spike Wilner on piano, Peter Washington bass, and Joe Farnsworth on drums – all great players too. Titles include "Ceora", "Cup Bearers", "Gingerbread Boy", "JuicyLucy", "Love For Sale", and "Rhythm N Ning". CD
