I Don't Like Hecklers
07/26/2000
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I bought this disc to round out my collection. "Volume 4" was the only one in the six volume "Live and Dirty" series that I didn't have. It's very good, but whenever a performer has to deal with hecklers in the audience, he/she spends too much time reacting to them and less time "getting on with the show," as it were. Foxx handles the hecklers on this recorded performance very well, but they are a distraction nonetheless. What's more, these particular hecklers refuse to pipe down and just let Foxx do his thing. There are many gems here, however, including "When You Finish Your Homework" and "They All Look Alike to Me." Don't let the three stars totally discourage you. All the discs in the "Live and Dirty" series are excellent, as far as Foxx himself is concerned. He is performing in a warm, intimate setting with his piano player providing the atmosphere. Foxx's timing is devastating, and his warm, easy way with the audience gives one a glimpse into his personality. "Volume 4" is definitely good, but certain things, namely hecklers, prevent it from being great."
