( LP Muse Records, 1977 )
Catalog # MR 5100

Willis "Gator" Jackson (April 25, 1932 – October 25, 1987) was an American jazz tenor saxophonist. Born in Miami, Florida, Jackson joined Duke Ellington alumnus Cootie Williams's band in 1949 as a teenager, after being discovered by Eddie Vinson. During the 1950s he participated in R&B and jazz recordings, primarily as a session musician. He also toured as leader of the backing band of singer Ruth Brown, whom he married. Jackson joined Prestige Records in 1959, making a string of jazz albums which proved to an influence on the burgeoning soul jazz movement. During this era, Jack McDuff and Pat Martino became famous through association with Jackson. Jackson's main influences were Lester Young and Illinois Jacquet.
Jamaican ska innovator Prince Buster has cited Jackson's song "Later for the Gator" as one of the first ska songs.
Jackson died in New York one week after heart surgery, in October 1987, at the age of 55.

''Gator's Groove''

From The Liner Notes:
The “Gator” is back and Muse has got him. Willis Jackson and Muse… a natural if you have been into what is happening you know that Muse has recently turned us on to such greats as Clifford Jordan, Richard Davis, Woody Shaw, Buster Williams, Houston Person, the up and coming David Schnitter and others who are causing jazz listeners to exclaim, “That is great; who was that?” This new and exciting album by Willis will keep that sound and trend moving along.
Willis “Gator Tail” Jackson’s road has not been an easy one. Willis was with The Cootie Williams band when he had his first hit record, “GATOR TAIL”. the song naturally gave him his nickname. Jackson was leader, for a period, of a big band that featured his wife at the time, Ruth Brown; an outstanding vocalist. Willis then formed the smaller groups which included artists like Jack McDuff, Pat Martino, Mickey Tucker, to name a few. Still there were those know-it-alls and chest-thumpers who would say that Willis was a Rhythm and Blues player; not a jazz player. Well, I agree with Willis who said that “rhythm and blues and jazz are just words. It only counts at the horn.” What comes forth is the real happening, so judge for yourself. I did and Willis passed the test. If you hear a taste of the blues, well, Willis put it best — “Jazz has roots and blues is the roots. Maybe they understand this: the blues, you got to have it, that’s the roots of it. Some people read a book and decide they know who’s what, but you’ve got the live the music, you can’t read it.” This is what he said in 1974 and it also takes care of now.
A few more things about Willis’ background, he was born in Miami, Florida. At age seventeen, he was playing around town with a couple of musicians named Blue Mitchell and Cannonball Adderly; on to Cootie Williams and “GATOR TAIL”, the small groups and his own very successful recordings.
This is the “Compleat” Willis Jackson. This is the Gator-Tail Willis Jackson groove on the track, “GATOR’S GROOVE”. “IN THE ALLEY” is the Willis Jackson who takes up where “HEADED AND GUTTED” and “WEST AFRICA” albums leave off. He tried his hand at disco, but that is not the “Gator” that I know and love.
We have a beautiful jazz audience in Denver and many of them are in the process of “getting into it”. It is not like Los Angeles, New York or Chicago, where jazz has been around forever, or so it seems. Jazz is relatively new in Denver. Yet, when I played a track by Willis Jackson, featuring his GATOR HORN, (remember that?) a listener phoned to give me a complete rundown on the Gator Horn and closed by saying, “When is he coming back?” Well people, the “Gator” is back.
Willis is working with some outstanding musicians. Other than guitarist Jimmy Ponder, who has released some albums as a leader, the other names have regional followings and will not be too familiar until you hear them “get it on”. Sonny Phillips will make his presence known with some of the finest piano playing that has been heard in quite awhile, as well as writing one of the tunes, “NIAMANI”, a barn burner! Yusef Ali, the drummer contributes “GATOR’S GROOVE” which, incidentally, was the title of an album that Willis did back in 1969. Carl Wilson really strokes the organ and I am sure that your ears will come away completely satisfied with Wilson’s actions. Carl may not have the big name such as Jimmy Smith, Jack McDuff, Jimmy McGriff, etc., but he sure has the talent. You will also be turning the names, Jimmy Lewis and Buddy Caldwell, in your minds. Listen and your shall hear!! So what are you waiting for? Do as I did — rush over to the turntable, drop “IN THE ALLEY” on the spindle. Listen to “Gator” go to work. Yes Indeedy, Mr Tweedy!! Gator’s back and Muse has got him!

''Niamani''

Review:
"In the Alley" and "Niamani" are the highlights of this typical but often exciting outing by veteran tenor Willis Jackson. The music includes blues, romps, a ballad, and funky vamps. Jackson is assisted by pianist Sonny Phillips, organist Carl Wilson, guitarist Jimmy Ponder, bassist Jimmy Lewis, drummer Yusef Ali and percussionist Buddy Caldwell. This worthy set has not yet been reissued on CD.

''Misty''

Comment:
We are the Fans!
And here we have it! The blues ‘Living Soul’! One of the best organ jazz blues recordings, at least in my opinion. There are a lot that could be written about this song: ‘Groove’ Holmes blinding swing, his incredible groovy left hand walking bass, his drive and creativity chorus after chorus. But instead, let me just point to one small detail: Listen carefully at around 27 seconds into the song.
At this moment Holmes is switching the organ motor off and then back on again in a split second, and the effect is that the sound of the organ is pitch-bending as the restarted motor frantically adjusts trying to deliver a stable speed again (correlated to the frequency of 60 Hz current from the wall socket). And Holmes is using this Hammond-trick in the ongoing swinging context of the song! He is actually using this effect as an integrated part of the start of his solo phrasing. Neat and pretty, to say the least…
By Jazz Organ Fan (comment on the old post)

More On Mr. Holmes:
One of the top jazz organists to emerge on the scene after Jimmy Smith’s initial success, Richard “Groove” Holmes (1931-1991) recorded a series of soul jazz sets for Prestige that helped set the direction for that label in the late 1960s.
Holmes worked in small clubs in the Pittsburgh and New Jersey area until he was discovered by Les McCann in 1960. After recording several sets for Pacific Jazz, he was signed to Prestige in 1965 and immediately had a jukebox hit with a catchy double-time version of “Misty.”
Groove Holmes recorded regularly for Prestige during 1965-1968. Soul Message includes “Misty” along with other medium-tempo ballads, soulful originals, and tunes with boogaloo rhythms. Misty repeats the hit and features some other catchy arrangements of standards. Blue Groove reissues two former LPs (Get Up & Get It and Soul Mist) and features such notable sidemen as tenor saxophonist Teddy Edwards, trumpeter Blue Mitchell, and guitarist Pat Martino. Groove Holmes’s final Prestige albums, The Groover and That Healin’ Feelin’, are reissued in full on his Legends of Acid Jazz. Saxophonist Rusty Bryant is a strong asset on the latter set.
Like many other organists in the mid-1970s, Holmes experimented a bit with electric keyboards. But he soon realized that his musical personality was really to be found on the organ so he switched back, staying active as one of the top organists on the soul-jazz scene until his death in 1991.

Record Of The Week: The J's - When Did You Stop - Al Kent Disco Version

BBE present J's

The J's "When Did You Stop" 
Al Kent Disco Version

To celebrate Record Store Day 2014 BBE present to you two previously unreleased gems from the vaults, remixed by Glasgow's answer to Walter Gibbons, Al Kent.
"When Did You Stop" by The J's was criminally overlooked on its initial release in 1977 except on certain dance-floors in the north of England. Al Kent included the 12 inch version on his Disco Love Volume 2 for BBE, and while we did the licensing deal we discovered the original tapes were still safe and sound. So Al excitedly set to work creating a more disco friendly version of the song, taking influence from his hero Walter Gibbons, which quickly became a highlight of his DJ sets. We thought it was finally time to share this one with the rest of the world.
Similarly, Sandy Barber's "I Think I'll Do Some Stepping On My Own" was a big northern hit, but didn't receive much commercial success. And, like the J's, the inclusion on Disco Love 2 revealed a lock up containing the original tapes. Al's instrumental "Disco Jam" version appeared on our deluxe edition re-release of Sandy Barber's album alongside some John Morales mixes, but this "Classic Version" has remained unreleased until now. It doesn't seem possible that the original version could be bettered, but in Al's capable hands it's been transformed into a stunning seven minutes of soulful beauty.
*Mixed at Ebony Cuts*
Due for release on BBE Records, April 2014

Simona Faraone is one of the first Italian Women Djs. Since 1987 she carries out that activity with the passion that characterizes her. She belongs to a generation of European Djs, in the 80s, were influenced by the hip hop scene from the States, and that, immediately after the funk and electro, fell in love with the Detroit techno, Chicago house and acid house of London. Lover of experimentation , she defines herself an eclectic artist, radical and strictly underground. She's well known as a regular at the more alternative music scene in Italy, and she's still appreciated as a performer of refined DJ sets, vinyl only, in which she expresses her background contaminating different musical genres.

Certainly a mixed bag this week but enjoyable to cobble together and play. I'm sorry the audio quality on the Hank Mobley tracks is a bit low but in my opinion any Hank is better than none. To make up for that I feature him in a 3Play coming up soon. I hope you like the music,spread the word.

Funky Fusion: Side Effect's What You Need (1976)

side effect flyer 2a
Side Effect

The birth of Side Effect began in the year 1972 with founder and leader Augie Johnson and members Lomita Johnson, Jim Gilstrap, Gregory Matta and Louie Patton.
Sylvia Nabors did an excellent job on the first album, but by the time "What You Need" was recorded, Helen Lowe, now gospel superstar Helen Baylor, was the new vocalist. In 1977, Lowe was replaced by Sylvia St. James. St. James was replaced in 1979 by Miki Howard. Howard left the group for a solo career in 1985. The group recruited Elaine Gibbs for its 1995 comeback album.
Nowadays members are:
Augie Johnson (Founder & Leader)
Milton Ellis (1st Tenor)
Anthony Hicks (1st & 2nd Tenor, Baritone, Bass)
Vernon Woods (1st & 2nd Tenor, Bass)

''Always There''

Reviews:
Side Effect changed female leads with practically every album, all the while maintaining a sophisticated jazz-imbued sound that transcended the disco market at which it aimed. The soul vocal group's eponymous 1975 first release for Fantasy Records featured Sylvia Nabors alongside stalwarts Augie Johnson, Gregory Matta, and Louis Patton. That disc is herein coupled with the quartet's 1976 sophomore Fantasy effort, What You Need, on which Nabors was replaced by Helen LaRue Lowe (who'd begun her recording career a decade earlier as 13-year-old soul singer Little Helen and, after Side Effect, reemerged as gospel star Helen Baylor). Sylvia St. James and Miki Howard were future leads, but the Lowe edition was the most successful, giving Side Effect the biggest of its nine R&B chart hits with the No. 22 "Keep That Same Old Feeling." That catchy tune was penned by the group's producer, trombonist Wayne Henderson, who'd initially recorded it some months earlier with the Crusaders--and, using the pseudonym "Big Daddy," solos on the Side Effect version.
From Concord Music Group

Side Effect reached its creative peak with the Wayne Henderson-produced What You Need, which was the group's second album as well as its best one. This time, the songs weren't simply decent -- they were excellent, and Side Effect had a gem of a female vocalist to help bring them to life. The quartet's new female singer was Helen Lowe, who had replaced Sylvia Nabors. While Nabors was competent, the brassy, big-voiced Lowe was a treasure -- and she shows herself to be major asset on the hit "S.O.S." and a remake of Ronnie Laws' "Always There," which was originally a soul-jazz instrumental in 1975 but becomes a gutsy vocal tune thanks to added lyrics by Paul Allen. Equally strong are the funky "Honky Tonk Scat," the mournful ballad "Changes," and a cover of the Crusaders' "Keep That Same Old Feeling." Regrettably, What You Need was Lowe's only album with Side Effect, and it's equally regrettable that she didn't go on to become huge as a solo artist.
By Alex Henderson (AMG)

Quite possibly the greatest album ever from Side Effect – a wonderful set that mixes their soulful harmonies with some killer jazz funk from Wayne Henderson! The album may be the most perfect realization of the groove that Henderson was going for during his At Home Productions years – lots of funky fusion in the instrumentation, but all directed towards a tighter, more soul-based style – that perfect contribution that Fantasy Records made to the world in the 70s – after labels like Blue Note and Columbia first started setting things down. Whatever the chronology, though, this set's a standout no matter how you slice it – damn catchy tunes, incredible vocals, and a set of rhythms that are every bit as hip today as they were back when first recorded – really genre-defining grooves that you'll definitely recognize in the album's classics "Always There" and "Keep That Same Old Feeling" – and will go on to love in the cuts "Life Is What You Make It", "Changes", "I Know You Can", "SOS", "Time Has No Ending", "Finally Found Someone", and "Honky Tonk Scat".

''Keep That Same Old Feeling''

Biography by Alex Henderson (AMG):
If the O'Jays, the Dramatics, or Bloodstone had added a female singer and incorporated bebop-influenced harmonies, they might have sounded something like Side Effect -- a distinctive soul and funk vocal quartet of the '70s and early '80s. Side Effect was never a big name in R&B -- and its material wasn't as consistently strong as that of the O'Jays -- but it did have a recognizable and appealing sound. The group was formed in Los Angeles in May 1972, when it started out as an all-male trio and consisted of Louis Patton, Gregory Matta, and leader Augie Johnson. The latter had been singing since childhood -- in fact, Johnson was among the kids who sang on Frank Sinatra's 1959 hit "High Hopes." Side Effect became a quartet when, in 1974, Johnson, Patton, and Matta decided to add a female vocalist and hired L.A. native Sylvia Nabors. In 1975, Side Effect signed with Fantasy and recorded its self-titled debut album, which was, like subsequent efforts, produced by Wayne Henderson of Crusaders fame. By the time Side Effect recorded its second album, What You Need, in 1976, Nabors had been replaced by Helen Lowe. Then, in 1977, Lowe was replaced by Sylvia St. James, who recorded with the group in 1977 and 1978. St. James' subsequent replacement was Miki Howard, a talented singer who sang with the group for a few years before signing with Atlantic in 1986 and becoming well known as a solo artist.
