CD Reviews

"Lookin' Good" for the Last Time
Michael B. Richman | Portland, Maine USA | 07/30/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

""Lookin' Good" was the final recording made by brilliant, underrated trumpeter Joe Gordon, best known for his brief stint as a Jazz Messenger and for his immeasurable contribution to the magnificent Shelly Manne "At The Blackhawk" discs (see my reviews of Volumes 2-5). This session, originally recorded in July 1961 for the Contemporary label, features the talents of Jimmy Woods on alto sax, Dick Whittington on piano (both making their recording debuts), Jimmy Bond on bass and Milt Turner on drums. Aside from the excellent playing, this album is significant for showcasing Gordon's surprisingly original compositions (all eight of the tracks were penned by the trumpeter). In my opinion, Gordon's playing and writing talents put him in the same company as another under-recognized trumpeter who died tragically young, Booker Little. One final note, if you are interested in "Lookin' Good" act quickly, this CD is a limited edition."
