Such a lovely listen and full off music throughout

Great interplay between the guitar and horns

Why'd you come here - to hear an old record or something...?

This swings and bounces its way straight to your toes.






I love this guitar sound, thin, trebly, delicate. A spider's web is being spun.

Lovely.



They're all good, and yet again it's the space between them that counts.

foot tapping, head nodding

The horns again the delicacy of Freddie's guitar is really powerful

Lots of harmonica too which drives things along

Solid tubs

That's what John said to the crowd when they shouted requests for old material and 'chika-chika' at the start of track 2

"Change your Ways".

There's a Miles influence in there methinks.....

Good Times Boogie was fantastic!

It is the first so far to set aside my worries that the album title might be solely a marketing gambit.
Trumpeter Blue Mitchell is a favourite jazzer of mine. I have his recordings with Jimmy Smith, Stanley Turrentine, Jackie McLean, and of course pianist Horace Silver, where he followed Art Farmer, Kenny Doreham, and Donald Byrd in a band that had its origins in the very first Jazz Messengers - amazingly, they were a collaboration between Horace Silver and Art Blakey, but first appeared on an album by the former.

You wouldn't think that Freddy Robinson played guitar on Howlin' Wolf's Spoonful, Back Door Man and Wang Dang Doodle recordings (along with Hubert Sumlin).

Clifford Solomon on sax - amazing!

Wikipedia: "From 1974 to 1987 he was Ray Charles's musical director"

So...just a bit talented, then.

Yes, a good retort

Yes agreed, Clifford Solomon is a talented geezer
