CD Reviews

Great "Straight"
Michael B. Richman | Portland, Maine USA | 07/10/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"While the reviewer below was trying to be helpful, it has backfired since he only gave this title one star. "Straight, No Chaser" is an excellent live document of Joe with the Wynton Kelly Trio in the years immediately following his stint with Blue Note. Along with "Four," this recording sat in the vaults for close to 30 years before being issued on CD by Verve. Normally, I would say this is a four-star disc, as the material is mostly standards and not as adventurous as the Blue Note albums. But I have no qualms awarding five here to offset the earlier one star rating. Great sound from a great group in a great era -- we'll miss you Joe."
