"Harris, Hamilton, Ellis, Brown & Jones a personal sound"
J. Lovins | Missouri-USA | 02/03/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)
"What a lucky-break we have here in this Concord Jazz release - "At Last", although most are standards take on a new direction with each tune. There is a kind of deep, natural swing tempo, blending with rhythm waves flowing essence of jazz. And in the flow of this personal sound is Gene Harris (piano), Scott Hamilton (tenor sax), Herb Ellis (guitar), Ray Brown (bass) and Harold Jones (drums).On the ballads, Scott Hamilton reveals again that he is a commanding romanticist unafraid of unabashed lyricism, he has such a good feeling on everything - even up-tempos, blues whatever. Gene Harris when he solos has a powerful presence, takes each song and makes it his own. Herb Ellis can move into any musical context and lift it into new and unexpected dimensions. Ray Brown, of course has been such an influential force in jazz, he has always been a big part of it, and Harold Jones (a Count Basie and Sarah Vaughan alumnus), was said he could even make the Congress of the United States swing.Of course the highlights - "YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE" is an amazingly-bluesy arrangement you'll never forget..."AT LAST" not because it's the title tune, but the rich-inner-feeling each musician brings to this classic....and the Milt Jackson tune written especially for Gene Harris - "BLUES FOR GENE" is an outstanding and a great tribute to this wonderful man of JAZZ! Total Time: 59:11 on 10 Tracks...Concord Jazz CCD-4434...(1990)"
This has turned out to be a very meaningful cd

"This cd has really become a favorite of mine. It is a meaningful and significant cd.The idea of Scott and Gene together on a project is mind boggling.
Until this cd, I had never had the opportunity to hear Gene play. I must confess that Gene has won me over with his sound on the ivories. I plan to buy some of his product in the future.This cd offers a star studded band. The band seems to play together real well and seems to be having a lot of fun in the process.This cd offers a good repertoire. I like most of the songs offered here.Recommendation: I would like to recommend this cd."
