CD Reviews

Burrell & Smith at their best

"I got the cassette version when this album was first released. I am glad that they rereleased it in CD with alternate takes.
Burrell & Smith were very relax in this session. As such, their playing have a free jam session quality, as opposed to a regular studio session. This quality results in a really good interaction and good music. I really enjoy this album, and one of my desert island disc."
A true pleasure

"This CD is wonderful. It is the combination of Jimmy Smith on Hammond B3 and Kenny Burrell on guitar. There are no suffocating string arrangements, no big band drama drowning out the talent, no lead sax in the spotlight, no LSD (lead singer disease) hamming up the vocal. There are just the blessed sounds of two of the true masters of jazz. I completely recommend this CD for its listening pleasure.

If you like this one then try Organ Grinder Swing as well. It has the same line-up and this CD and if anything Jimmy Smith plays with more fire. If you really like Kenny Burrell I also suggest you try to find a copy of Soulero.

"Burrell (g) Jimmy Smith (org) George Duvivier, Milt Hinton (b) Bill English, Mel Lewis (d) 7/63.

When two blues masters like Burrell and Smith team up (something they'd been doing since 1957), you know you're in for a treat. I'm glad this finally made it on to CD because my LP copy was just about worn out, especially BLUES FOR DEL, a terrific downhome blues track. It was written for dj Del Shields, one of the better jazz djs working out of NYC in the mid-60's, and he used this recording as background music. The title track and FEVER are also excellent. It's also one of James Oscar Smith's last complete jazz albums before falling completely down the commercial rathole. Recommended."
