"Walking Down" Down Slightly
Michael B. Richman | Portland, Maine USA | 05/30/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)
"After my excitement at discovering the absolutely smokin' Bennie Green disc With Art Farmer (see my review), I was delighted to come across an inexpensive copy of the rare, out-of-print "Walking Down" recently. Recorded two and a half months after "BG with AF" on June 29, 1956, this session unfortunately doesn't have the star power of its predecesor, and that's the primary reason why it's not as good. Simply put, local unheralded NYC players Eric Dixon on tenor sax, Lloyd Mayers on piano, Sonny Wellesley on bass and Bill English on drums (I don't think I have any of these men on a single disc in my 1500+ jazz collection) cannot replace the likes of Art and Addison Farmer and Philly Joe! If you see "Walking Down" come down in price then go for it, but otherwise use your money to pick up the 3CD Mosaic Select of his wonderful recordings for Blue Note."
