CD Reviews

There's gold here along with the dross
Bomojaz | South Central PA, USA | 10/29/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"A mixed bag. The CD collects two earlier LPs recorded for Prestige/Moodsville; the Moodsville date (4/12/60) has Shirley Scott on organ, the Prestige date (5/1/62) Horace Parlan on piano. The Prestige session is much superior. Everything just clicks: the tunes are great, tempos vary, and the playing is inventive. There's not a single dud on the whole session, and the beautiful slow version of PLEASE SEND ME SOMEONE TO LOVE is a real standout.

The earlier Moodsville session is rather lackluster. The addition of Ray Barretto's conga, usually a plus, just doesn't seem to work here. FROM THIS MOMENT ON, taken up-tempo, is the highlight on this date. So we have a so-so album paired with a great one. In my opinion, Lockjaw gives enough pleasure on this CD to make it still worth checking out."
