Shirley ScottWorkin (Workin/Stompin) ... CD
Prestige, Late 50s/Early 60s. Used ... $11.99
Two albums on one CD! First up is Workin – a record that's heavier-duty than Shirley's other ones on Prestige. The album (which might have been recorded in earlier days), supports a great group on the b-side, which includes Wally Richardson, Ronell Bright, Peck Morrison, and Roy Haynes. The expanded lineup works nicely – and the tracks performed ("Work Song" and "Chapped Chops") are both nice and lively, with guitar providing a nice complement to Shirley's light style on the keys. Stompin is a mixed bag of tracks that features the organ of Shirley Scott in a number of different groupings – some with her old time compatriot Eddie Lockjaw Davis, and some with a newer group that includes Wally Richardson on guitar. Titles include "Traveling Light", "From This Moment On", "Down By The Riverside", and "You're My Everything". Oddly, the record also includes 1 track that doesn't even feature Shirley at all – "This Can't Be Love", which was recorded by Don Patterson with Eddie Lockjaw Davis! CD

✨✧ Jimmy Forrest with Shirley ScottHeart Of The Forrest ... CD
Muse, 1978. Used ... Out Of Stock
A really classic tenor/organ sort of album – one recorded live in the late 70s, but with the sort of open-ended feel we remember from Shirley Scott's late 50s material with Eddie Lockjaw Davis! Jimmy Forrest is one of those players that always has a nice little bite in his tone – and he sounds especially sharp here, working with Shirley at a small club in Michigan – helping the organist to hit notes she was hardly reaching at the time, and really taking the sound back to the gutbuckety years of early Hammond jazz. Randy Marsh completes the group on drums, and titles include "Love For Sale", "These Foolish Things", "Take The A Train", and "Night Train". CD

✨✧ Stanley TurrentineAin't No Way (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1968/1969. Used ... Just Sold Out!
Killer work from the last years of Stanley Turrentine on Blue Note – tracks that appeared here for the first time ever, as a long-overdue LP release at the end of the 70s! The bulk of the set features some compelling quartet work – with Stan's tenor in the company of McCoy Tyner on piano, Gene Taylor on bass, and Billy Cobham on drums – almost in Easy Walker sort of territory, with a great stepping soulful groove – but a bit more fluid, given the Tyner touch! That quartet plays "Stan's Shuffle", "Watch What Happens", "Intermission Walk", and "Wave". The set ends with the killer title track "Ain't No Way" – a tenor/Hammond cooker based on the Carolyn Franklin soul tune – really given a workout by Stan and a group that features Shirley Scott on organ and Jimmy Ponder on guitar!

✨✧ Stanley TurrentineHustlin' (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Blue Note (Japan), 1964. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of Stanley Turrentine's few organ-based sessions for Blue Note – recorded in the company of his wife Shirley Scott, a real cooker on the Hammond who holds it down masterfully here – and great band that's filled out by Kenny Burrell on guitar, Bob Cranshaw on bass and Otis Finch on drums. The album's sound has the triple strengths of strong interplay between Stanley's tenor sax and Shirley's organ grooves, rhythms as tightly honed or loosed-limbed as duty calls, and Burrell's guitars rolling gracefully from unfussy backing to refined solos. Tracks include "Trouble No 2", "Goin Home", "Ladyfingers", "Something Happens To Me" and "The Hustler". CD

✨✧ Eddie Lockjaw DavisStreetlights (I Only Have Eyes For You/Trackin') ... CD
Prestige, 1962. Used ... Out Of Stock
Two killers from Eddie Lockjaw Davis – both records that are different from his Cookbook sessions with Shirley Scott, and his twin-tenor battles with Johnny Griffin! First up is I Only Have Eyes For You – easily one of our favorite Eddie Lockjaw Davis albums! The record's a lot livelier than most – and it's recorded with the little-known Paul Weeden trio, who featured a young Don Patterson on organ. Weeden's a pretty good guitarist himself, and the whole session has a nice groovy groovy feel. Titles include "I Only Have Eyes For You", "Street Lights", and "The Way You Look Tonight" – and all tracks are taken at a good clip, with a strong club sound to them. Next is Trackin – a tight little soul jazz cooker from Eddie Lockjaw Davis – done with a sound that's leaner and cleaner than some of his Cookbook sessions – thanks to great Hammond from Don Patterson, working here in the trio of guitarist Paul Weeden! The combo's totally great – nicely focused, and hitting that more mature soul jazz swing that started to really come into play during the mid 60s – that stripping down of the organ stops, focused bite on tenor, and tight comping of guitar – all of which the combo carry off wonderfully – with help from George Duvivier on bass and Billy James on drums. There's a nice long cut with a laidback groove called "Beano", and a number of other shorter standards given the tenor/organ treatment – including "What's New", "Day By Day", and "Robbin's Nest". CD
