"Bennie is a decent sax player; a bit brassy and noisy, which is perfect for this type of Texas roadhouse jazz/blues. He gets right to the heart. What REALLY makes this recording worth hearing, though, is a young Stevie Ray Vaughn who just burns on a couple tracks and John Scofield, who's playing is unusually lyrical and emotional (usually he's a more cerebral, melodic fragments kind o guy). Whoever thought Stevie couldn't play jazz needs to hear this - true, it's a bluesy jazz, but Stevie really takes the melody and makes a statement on his cuts.
That said, I came across this trying to replace my old lp copy. Imagine my surprise when I see it listed for $70 used! Insane! Who would pay such a ransom? And shame on the sellers for putting it up at that price!"
