Brother Jack McDuff - organ
Kenny Burrell - guitar
Joe Dukes - drums
Ray Barretto - conga
 
Organist Jack McDuff has long had a powerful style and the two former LPs that are combined on this single reissue offer some strong examples of his accessible playing. In both cases McDuff is joined by guitarist Kenny Burrell (in fact one of the two sets was originally under Burrell's name), drummer Joe Dukes and occasionally Ray Barretto on congas. In addition Harold Vick is on tenor for most selections and Eric Dixon guests on tenor and flute during three songs. Highlights include a driving "How High the Moon," "Love Walked In" and a pair of original blues: "Smut" and "Our Miss Brooks." McDuff and Burrell work together quite well. This 76-minute reissue is easily recommended to fans of the jazz organ. ~ Scott Yanow

Recorded April 22, 1978 at Shade Tree Studio, Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.
 
"You take some skins, jazz begins..." Thus Bing Crosby famously introduced Louis Armstrong's All Stars in the film High Society. The skins were beaten by Barrett Deems, a drummer who made his name with the All Stars in the mid-fifties, although he had already played for Joe Venuti, Red Norvo, Charlie Barnet and Muggsy Spanier. This reissued album from 1978 was his first recording as a bandleader, although he keeps a fairly low profile, mostly content to push the rhythm along.

In fact the real star of this album is clarinettist Chuck Hedges, who made his name in Chicago in the early fifties. Like Barrett Deems, Chuck played for Muggsy Spanier and he also toured with Wild Bill Davison, although he is less well known than he should be. He plays some beautiful solos on this CD. For instance, sample his calm theme statement and solo in New Orleans, where vibist Don DeMichael, guitarist Bob Roberts and pianist Steve Behr all make fine solo contributions.

Here and elsewhere on the album, Barrett Deems is not particularly prominent, although he trades eights with the front-line musicians on the ultra-fast Shine (whose speed makes the vibist sound uncomfortable) and gets a solo in After You've Gone, which starts intriguingly with a tentative Chuck Hedges accompanied only by drums.

The presence of clarinet and vibes makes for an understandable resemblance on some tracks to Benny Goodman groups, as in Seven Come Eleven and Six Appeal. I Love Paris and Get Happy are features for pianist Steve Behr and they sound rather disorganised. But perhaps these are the two previously unissued tracks added to the CD.

This is not a notably special album but it's a palatable, swinging session. Jazz begins...
