Thanks! Share it with your friends!


“This set from the 1974 Concord Jazz Festival (which has been reissued on CD) is a follow-up to the studio record Soft Shoe and uses similar personnel: guitarist Herb Ellis, bassist Ray Brown, drummer Jake Hanna, trumpeter Harry “Sweets” Edison, tenor saxophonist Plas Johnson and, in a rare straight-ahead outing, pianist George Duke. Each of the musicians has their chance to be featured; Ellis and Brown play a duet version of “Detour Ahead,” and Edison is quite lyrical on “Mood Indigo.” This is a bright, swinging set that helped to launch the Concord label.” – Scott Yanow/AllMusic.
