Avant soul jazz

"A generous workout from an unusual sax/guitar/organ/drums line-up. Despite David Murray and the late Don Pullen's avant-garde reputations, they understood the African-American gospel and blues tradition, and with Pullen playing a Hammond B-3 instead of his usual piano, the whole record is infused with a kind of soul jazz feel - sort of like what those old Blue Note records would have sounded like if they had absorbed the subsequent 25 years of developments in jazz. The highpoint is the closing track, Pullen's "Milano Strut" which he originally recorded as a duet with drummer Don Moye on an obscure Italian label. Here it gets a fuller reprise with the addition of the sax and guitar."
I agree one of the best cd's ever.

"I wish more people knew about David Murray and this CD. I found out about it from a friend. This CD gets played a lot in my house. I would go so far as to say its one of the best jazz cd's of all time. I was surprised to read a glowing review of this by Robert Christgau, the Dean of music critics. Please go to his web page ... and check out his review. He mainly reviews rock/pop music, but he listens to a lot of jazz too. I'm not a reviewer who can do justice to this amazing cd , but his review of Shakill's is perfect. This is a great performance that transcends all music genres, and it really is a landmark recording. Everyone should get to listen to this!Please check it out."
Superb organ combo!

"This is a great album, and at cutout prices simply has to be part of your collection if you like David Murray! Here he is in a very straight-ahead mode playing organ combo music with the late, great Don Pullen. Fantastic!"
