After a series of sugary soul-jazz dates for Blue Note, Reuben Wilson resurfaced on Groove Merchant with The Sweet Life. The title notwithstanding, the session is his darkest and hardest-edged to date, complete with a physicality missing from previous efforts. Credit tenor saxophonist Ramon Morris, trumpeter Bill Hardman, guitarist Lloyd Davis, bassist Mickey Bass, and drummer Thomas Derrick, whose skin-tight grooves sand away the polished contours of Wilson's organ solos to reveal their diamond-sharp corners. The material, while predictable (i.e., standbys like "Inner City Blues" and "Never Can Say Goodbye"), is nevertheless well suited to the set's righteous funk sound.

On four songs (three swing standards plus Lionel Hampton's "Ham Hock Blues"), drummer Buddy Rich has fun jamming with vibraphonist Hampton, pianist Teddy Wilson, tenor-saxophonist Zoot Sims and bassist George Duvivier. Nothing all that significant occurs but these versions of "Avalon," "Airmail Special" and "Ring Dem Bells" are real fun. However the second session, which has Rich and Hampton playing two forgettable funk originals with a larger group featuring Sal Nistico on tenor, guitarist Jack Wilkins and Joe Romano's soprano, is much less interesting, making this album definitely a mixed bag.

If you're looking for an especially high energy Buddy Rich recording, then you've found it. I especially enjoy the trumpet section of this band. LA trumpet player Charley Davis is heard here on lead, soon after leaving Indiana University. He remains one of the top lead trumpet players in the business. Another top LA studio trumpet player and IU grad Larry Hall is also in the trumpet section on this recording. I only wish that this recording included a Charley Davis rendition of "Something", heard on the "Stick It" album, performed by Lin Biviano. "Time Check", "Backwoods Sideman" and "Nutville" are my favorites. Also great work by current Berklee faculty member Greg Hopkins and Toronto's tenor legend Pat LaBarbera.

Recorded in 1975, this is the original Groove Merchant recording of a jazz-funk orchestra loaded with heavyweight soloists. Indeed, it is as fine a modern band as Rich ever dished out. The disc is not as good as the Japanese P-Vine version which has two bonus tracks and the original artwork. If this more in your budget range, get it, but be aware the import has the complete session.

Monster funk from Hammond hero Reuben Wilson – an album of hard-burning, bad-walking tunes that are a fair bit different than most of his other work! Although Wilson recorded some pretty traditional organ jazz for the Blue Note and Groove Merchant labels, this album has him working with his "Cost Of Living" group – a combo who only recorded this one album, and which includes Richard Tee on keyboards, Bad Bascomb on bass, Bernard Purdie on drums, and both Houston Person and Pee Wee Ellis on tenor sax! Most cuts have some sort of vocals – sung by either Sammy Turner or Kenny Williams, both of whom really fit the badass spirit of the record, and bring in a nice range of deeper themes from the 70s.

Natalie Merchant’s new self-titled is the multi-platinum singer’s sixth solo collection, and her first of entirely original songs in 13 years. This self-produced album is the work of a mature artist with a clear and distinctive voice. Long appreciated for the depth and substance of her writing, Merchant has never shied away from weighty themes or subjects for her lyrics. She describes the new release as informed "by experience and keen observation," dealing with issues of "love gained and lost, regret, denial, surrender, greed, destructiveness, defeat, and occasional triumph".

1974 Groove Merchant

One of the grooviest albums ever from Jimmy McGriff -- a hard-wailing session that's filled with plenty of cooking lines on the organ, and a few especially funky tracks! The groove here is tight, short, and very sharp -- strongly in the mode of other post-Sue sessions by McGriff -- like The Worm or other Groove Merchant sides -- with a style that's often much more focused than Jimmy's earlier years, and strongly turned towards the rhythms of the tunes! A few numbers are more familiar soul jazz, but these are nicely offset by the harder funk numbers of the record -- like the romping, stomping break classic "The Main Squeeze", the totally groovy "The Worm Turns", and the fast-vamping "GMI". The group features Jimmy Ponder on guitar and Connie Lester on alto sax -- and other titles include "The Sermon", "Stella By Starlight", and "The Blues Train To Georgia".
