CD Reviews

A completely biased review!
Jeanette L. Ponder | NJ | 01/18/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It's a great album, and yeah, those are my eyes from when I was about 12. Hee! My father has fingers of lightning : ), and is a fantastic artist. Buy this!"
Blues . Soul & Emotion in one package

"I think that the corrrect name of this album is SOUL EYES and not sad eyes as indicated here.
This recording is from 1991, but well on the same artistic level as later albums from Ponder. Here we have Ponders usual "brew" of
Heavy Blues Swingers (Kansas City) Funk(All Blues)Standards(You are too beautiful) and Blues (You dont have to go) and that mix works. Ponder plays the simple riff on Kansas City single string.and he can "outline the groove" like noone else on tunes like this.Another highlight is "You are too beautiful" where Ponders solo will take any jazzguitar nut to "heaven"
Houston Persons sax playing is awesome he takes solo after solo that are loaded with soul and emotion.For Benny Green on piano I suppose this was pretty early in his career, but his playing is very mature and soulful here.
If you are an addicted Ponder fan (like me)this one is a must have... as well as for any jazzguitarfan of the jazz that came out of the sixties."
