If you like it funky...! ! !
Eddie Landsberg | Tokyo, Japan | 06/27/2003

"Now that I live in Tokyo, I'm a bit spoiled... you go into a record store, and sitting on the shelf - - well, take just the other day - - I picked up a vinyl reissue of Joe Jones's Boogaloo Joe (the album from which many of these tracks come.) - - For some reason, you just don't find groovy stuff like this on CD/record store shelves back in the states, and its a shame. - - If you're a fan of that late '60s BLUE NOTE/Prestige Funk... and like cats like MELVIN SPARKS and Grant Green's later funk flirtations, this CD is made to order. - - Also a nice treat - - a right on red hot finger popping Bernard Purdie on drums, Sonny Phillips on organ and RUSTY BRYANT (If you ever can get your hands on an album called NIGHT TRAIN NOW, go for it !) - - Calling Joe Jones a legend of acid Jazz may or may not be a hip marketing cliche... but whether it is or isn't, book its probably an understatement. For some reason he is often criticised as underplaying (leaving the work to his sidemen) - - however, a quick listen to "Boogaloo Joe" should pretty much clear up any doubts as to weather or not the guy can get a groove on... Yip, go out and get this one !"
Jazz/Groove Guitar Master

"Boogaloo Joe Jones along with Grant Green are my favorite soul jazz guitarists. This cd contains the lps "Right On Brother" and "Boogaloo Joe". The groove NEVER ends on this cd. The side men on this smokin' cd include groove jazz masters Rusty Bryant, Charles Earland, Sonny Phillips & Bernard Purdie. My favorite tracks include "Boogaloo Joe", and a cover of the Supremes hit "Someday We'll Be Together." If you are a fan of the almighty groove you can't miss this one. The "Legends Of Acid Jazz Vol 2" cd of Boogaloo Joe Jones is equally good."
Great Funk Jazz Guitar
Michael Strom | Chicago, IL USA | 04/02/2000

"Boogaloo Joe Jones is a terrific funk-jazz guitarist whose work tends to be in combos with like minded sax/organ/bass/drummers. Fans of the late-'60s/early '70s Grant Green style will be at home (or is it down home?) here. Fire up the sample from the smoking self-titled cut Boogaloo Joe, & you'll get a good idea of what to expect. Great playing from sideman such as Rusty Bryant (sax) & Idris Muhammed (drums)."
