"Harris mixes it up ~ jazz, soul, rock and funky blues"
J. Lovins | Missouri-USA | 05/02/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"How can you miss with this great jazz combination ~ Ron Eschete (guitar) ~ Luther Hughes (bass) ~ Paul Humphrey (drums) ~ and the man himself tickling the ivories, Mr. Gene Harris ~ make up THE GENE HARRIS QUARTET. Featuring some old and some new ~ "BYE BYE BLUES", a classic tune from the early days ~ "BLUES IN HOSS' FLAT", big number from the Count Basie era ~ "NICE 'N' EASY", Alan & Marilyn Bergman song recorded so matter of fact by Frank Sinatra, with a new arrangement giving us another side to this jazz favorite by Gene and his associates ~ "CHILDREN OF SANCHEZ", composed for the film by Chuck Mangione and hand picked by Gene with this haunting and original arrangement for piano and guitar, takes on several tempo changes ~ "BLUES FOR BASIE" and "OLD FUNKY GENE'S", written by Harris gives the listener a wild ride, opening with soulful melodies, counter-balancing on through jazz, tip-toeing in gospel and closing with hard-pounding blues ~ what a ride that was...can we do it again?Why not try other title on Concord Jazz featuring Gene Harris ~ "Alley Cats" (CCD-4859-2) ~ "Listen Here" (CCD-4385) ~ "It's The Real Soul" (CCD-4692) ~ "In His Hands" (CCD-4758-2).Total Time: 57:25 on 9 Tracks...Concord Jazz CCD 4509...(1994)"
