Synopsis

Amazon.com
Toward the end of this exceptional compilation, Lou Donaldson's "Everything I Do Gonna Be Funky (from Now On) struts out of the speakers with a groove so rousing you'll need all weekend to recover. Indeed, Donaldson's track could have been the title of this collection, which highlights just about everyone who ever mudwrestled a Hammond B3 into submission or reached into their trick bag and yanked out the funky funk. Featuring the likes of Jimmy McGriff, "Big" John Patton, and Jimmy Smith (and that's just the first three tracks), this is a can't-miss collection. If these 12 tracks don't get your party started, it's time to look for new friends. --S. Duda

CD Reviews

Good, but not the best compilation around
Miguel Angel Martinez Rolland | Madrid Spain | 11/19/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"There are good tracks on this compilation, especially Jimmy McGriff's AWESOME 'All About My Girl', Lou Donaldson's 'Everything I Do Goin' Be Funky', and Grant Green 'Ain't It Funky'. However, the other tracks do not fare that well in comparison. The overall album is good, but could be far better knowing all the gems that Blue Note treasures in its vaults.
Anyway, the title is right: It is a very funky album and worth checking out if you don't have any of the songs above mentioned."
