Johnny Rae was a drummer/vibes player from Boston (he's on only vibes here) who shows a strong Milt Jackson influence. He played with George Shearing for a while in the mid-fifties, and then made this album for Savoy in 1960. It's a solid outing all around. POTLIKKER BLUES is a swinging blues waltz in 6/8; ROLL ON DOWN is another blues, taken up-tempo, and both feature excellent Rae solos. Bobby Jaspar is on flute and plays well throughout, while a 22-year-old Steve Kuhn is on piano. Four of the seven tunes are Rae originals and are tasty and interesting.
It's a good CD, somewhat on the hard-to-find side now, but worth checking out."
