CD Reviews

Bebop with organ
Paul Robertz | Chicago, IL | 05/15/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I love this CD! This is one of the few I take with me on long road trips. When I'm driving, I'm definitely not tripping on acid, so I think the marketers made a mistake with the psychedelic album cover. I don't know who invented the category "acid jazz" or how they define it. I call this CD bebop with a Sonny Stitt's stable organ trio of the '60s underneath: Don Patterson, Paul Weeden, and Billy James. This music is simply a bop master playing his heart out in the '60s, when jazz organ was in vogue. (Stitt experimented with an electronic sax called Varitone during this period, as did Eddie Harris). Their great rendition of "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" amazes me and makes me laugh at currently popular version of this song by a morbidly obese Hawaiian who ignores some of the chord changes on his ukelele. (I bet he couldn't learn the changes to "Airegin"!) This is music which should be the soundtrack for urban life in this decade."
