Fabulous stuff!
C. J. Zimmel | United States | 06/09/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I just can't understand why this album isn't more popular, or why Harry hasn't put out another trio album like this. He's got a unique piano style, although borrowed from Monk and a few others, that is young and exciting on this album. It is borderline awkward and clumsy that also seems like sheer genius. The drumming is unbelievable. You get the feeling they had a lot of fun in the studio making this album as all three members bring "kick" to each song in a laid-back style. This sits on the CD shelf right next to Dave Brubeck's Time Out."
Strange title. good CD

"Lofty's Roach Souffle is a clear reflection of Harry's New Orleans roots, and is a great mix of bouncy and upbeat and quiet and mellow songs, all presented in a clear and enjoyable format. I recommend it to everybody and anybody who listens to jazz."
In dire need of remastering!

"(This review refers to the 1990 issue of this disc. It is unclear, as of yet, if the 2007 issue has been, in fact, remastered or merely re-released.)

Excellent music from excellent musicians.

No question.

The technical aspects of this release are, however, far from optimal.

Digital overs and overs and overs...

...detected on 3 tracks and counting...

...lost interest, unlistenable...

On a 'boom box' it's perfect.

(Not the target audience, however.)

On anything else it is simply a crime.
