CD Reviews

Chad A. Timm | Morristown, NJ United States | 06/19/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the best B-3 funky jam album I own (and I have a lot of them). I am not sure which (*cough*) album the other reviewer is talking about. If there is a better Reuben Wilson album, I'd buy it in a heartbeat. All of the tracks are strong, with Orange Peel and Hot Rod probably leading the way. It takes the funkiest of Wilson's short late 60s- early 70s career. If you like funky B-3, this album is a must have. If you ever see this album for sale, buy it!"
No one plays the B-3 as Funky as Reuben

"Reuben Wilson is undoubtedly the funkiest man to have ever sat behind the bench of the B-3. While the album we all really want to hear (*cough*) is still out of print, this is second best, and features one of his most climatic grooves, Ronnie's Bonnie among others. - - Reuben is no be-bopper wannabe, nor is this antequated organ lounge Blues and Boogaloo... these are highly danceable rare Blue Note grooves. Like the works of Big John Patton, many of the grooves are deceptively simple with lot's of surprizes that kinda land you straight in the jaw and go straight for the K.O. After you listen to this album ACCENT ON THE BLUES (John Patton), LEGENDS OF ACID JAZZ (Leon Spencer), FUNK INC., and CHARLES EARLAND (BLACK TALK) and well worth considering."
