Review:
An incredible album from one of the greatest talents on the Chicago soul scene of the late 60s – guitarist Phil Upchurch, a player with an amazing sound! Phil could work in worlds that were equal parts soul and psychedelia – making his guitar a perfect accompaniment for the best Chicago soul of Curtis Mayfield, Donny Hathaway, Minnie Riperton, and other greats of the time. This album's easily one of Phil's best – a mindblowing set of arrangements put together by the groundbreaking producer Charles Stepney – bringing together bits of jazz, rock, soul, and funk – all providing the perfect genre-blending space for Upchurch to solo! Given that there's no singer on the set, Phil's work on guitar is a lot freer than you're used to hearing – in a really great way, one that puts him in a space somewhere between Shuggie Otis and Jimi Hendrix! Brilliant all the way through, with tracks that include "Adam & Charlene", "You Wouldn't You Couldn't Be True", "Crosstown Traffic", "More & More", "Black Gold", "America", and "As You Said".

Biography:
From Wikipedia:
Upchurch started his career working with The Kool Gents, The Dells, and The Spaniels before going on to work with Curtis Mayfield, Otis Rush and Jimmy Reed. He then returned to Chicago to play and record with Woody Herman, Stan Getz, Groove Holmes, B.B. King, and Dizzy Gillespie. In 1961, when billed as the Philip Upchurch Combo, his recording of "You Can't Sit Down" sold over one million copies, and was awarded a gold disc. In the 60's he toured with Oscar Brown, appearing on the 1965 live album, Mr. Oscar Brown, Jr. Goes to Washington. Returning from the Army in 1967, he recorded with Richard Evans, John Lee Hooker, Grover Washington, Jr. and Cannonball Adderley. Upchurch was part of a group called The Soulful Strings during the 1960s, prior to working with Rotary Connection on Chess's Cadet label.
In the 1970s he worked with Ramsey Lewis, Quincy Jones and led his own quartet with Tennyson Stephens. In the mid 1970s and 1980s, he performed with George Benson, Mose Allison, Gary Burton, Lenny Breau, Joe Williams, Natalie Cole, Carmen McRae, Cat Stevens and Michael Jackson.
In the 1990s he worked with Jimmy Smith and Jack McDuff.
His son is the drummer, Sean Rickman.
His wife, his 7th, is actress Sonya Maddox.

''Black Gold''

By Ron Wynn (AMG):
A prolific guitarist who is comfortable playing blues, soul, R&B, and jazz, Phil Upchurch has been a prominent figure in Chicago music circles since the mid-'50s. He initially did freelance sessions with such musicians as Jerry Butler before becoming house guitarist for Chess. Upchurch's sensitive, often funky chording, riffs, and licks were heard on numerous releases by such artists as the Dells, Howlin' Wolf, Gene Chandler, and Muddy Waters. He frequently teamed with drummer Maurice White, who later headed Earth, Wind & Fire. He formed the Phil Upchurch Combo in the early '60s, and had a hit with the instrumental "You Can't Sit Down" in 1961. They did some follow-up singles, but none equaled the initial record's success. Upchurch did several soul-jazz and funk dates for such labels as Sue and Cadet in the mid- and late '60s. He signed with Blue Thumb in the '70s and split his time between sessions with the Crusaders and Ben Sidran and making his own albums. Tommy LiPuma produced Darkness, Darkness and Lovin' Feelin in 1972 and 1973. Upchurch did one LP for Creed Taylor's Kudu label in 1975, Upchurch Tennyson, with pianist/vocalist Tennyson Stephens. He returned to studio work, but recorded as a leader for Palladin in 1985, Ichiban in 1991, and Ridgetop in 1995 and 1997. He remains active as a session musician and bandleader, returning in 1999 with Rhapsody & Blues. Tell the Truth appeared in spring 2001.

From AllAboutJazz:
Chicago-born guitarist and bassist Phil Upchurch has been backing jazz, blues, and pop stars for over 50 years. What magic formula has allowed him to record and perform with everyone from Otis Rush and Donny Hathaway to George Benson and Michael Jackson? Aside from Upchurch’s immense talent and versatility, it also has to do with the fact that the guitarist is very detail oriented”particularly when it comes to rhythmic and melodic phrasing. Whether comping or soloing, Upchurch thinks like a drummer and always plays with and not on top of the band.
“If you listen to [drummer] Philly Joe Jones’ snare, you can get a lot of ideas for rhythmic comping on the guitar,” offers Upchurch, who also points to Miles Davis”with his masterful blend of sustained notes and silence”as essential listening for all aspiring jazzers. Upchurch says that, like Davis, a great soloist must practice mindful interaction with the band, knowing exactly when and when not to play.

Reviews & Comments:
Kynard's best combo effort. Shows him in a more favorable light as a soul-jazz proprietor.

A great album from organist Charles Kynard -- one of his best that wasn't issued on Prestige! This is one of the funky jazz LPs on Mainstream that really hits a nice groove, with Bob Shad's crisp production dovetailing with Kynard's jazz funk sensibilities just right -- not too slick or uptight at all! Kynard's backed here by a nice little LA combo that includes Carol Kaye on bass, King Errison on conga, and Ernie Watts on tenor -- all players who relax nicely into the groove, and let Charles hit a sweetly gliding sort of line on the Hammond. The overall groove is similar to his earlier Prestige soul jazz classic Reelin' With The Feelin -- but with shorter, tighter tracks, and more emphasis on the funk side, which is what we love to hear! Titles include "She", "Nightwood", "Grits", "El Toro Poo Poo", "Greeze", and "Greens".

One of the best artists Mainstream ever signed, and one of the best albums they ever put out. The opening track is entitled El Toro Poo Poo. With a title like that how could you go wrong? Kynard lets loose with a series of funky rhythms like the first song, and some slow jams like She, which was sampled by Blackalicious, to provide a record that ends as well as it starts. Other noteworthy tunes to listen to are Greeze, Greens and a rousing cover of It’s Too Late that also sports a drum and conga break. Supporting Kynard on organ are Carol Kaye, of Axelrod fame, King Errison, Ernie Watts, Billy Fender and James Gadson.

''Greeze''

Biography:
Charles Elliot Kynard was born February 20, 1933. A native of Kansas City, who lived and played in Kansas City, Missouri as a child, and an adult for over forty years. Considered a Hammond organ virtuoso and electric-bass player, Kynard is unquestionably the finest organist to have played in Kansas City, Missouri. Pat Metheney of Kansas City and national fame has said Charles Kynard was the best organ player he has ever played with. Foremost, Kynard holds a very special place in jazz history as he is always mentioned along with the giants of organ mastery that includes Jimmy Smith, Richard "Groove" Holmes, and Jimmy McGriff.
Kynard received his early his early education in the Kansas City, Kansas public Schools. He received his undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of Kansas at Lawrence; Post graduate work at UCLA, University of California at Long Beach; Avila University, Kansas City; the Ford Free University in Berlin, Germany; and the Hock-Schule for Music in Berlin, Germany. Charles Kynard started studying and playing music at the tender age of nine then switching from piano to the organ. His Mother, and father, (B.C. Kynard) both were outstanding professional musicians.
An uncle, Ben Kynard, Kansas City’s own Mr. Red Top played with the Lionel Hampton Orchestra; and an aunt was a dean of Music at Hampton Institute.
In 1956-1957 he touched the world with the U.S. Army show. He also appeared on the famous Ed Sullivan show in 1956; and with the Kansas City Philharmonic Orchestra. During the early 1960’s Kynard often played as a guest organist at Municipal stadium at Kansas City Athletics baseball games. There he played the traditional baseball songs in the 7th inning stretch such as Take Me Out To The Ball Game, while also adding his flair for improvisation.
In 1963, Kynard moved to Los Angeles, California and worked in studio orchestras for Columbia Pictures, and Warner Brothers Pictures. He also worked with studio musicians in and around Hollywood. He recorded on three labels, Prestige Records, under his own name with Pacific Jazz in the 1960’s, and Mainstream Records during 1971-74. It is, perhaps, the four records he did for Prestige between 1968 and 1970 that Kynard is best known for. “Legends of Acid Jazz” which combines the last two of these, “Afro-Disiac” (1970) and “Wa-Tu-Wa-Zui” (1970). A brief discography includes: “Where it's at“ (1963) “Professor Soul” (1968) “Soul Brotherhood “ (1969), “Reelin With The Feelin”(1969), “Charles Kynard” (1971), “Woga” (1972) “Your Mama Don't Dance” (1973). In addition, Charles Kynard has accumulated numerous credits for his outstanding work throughout the years, and with many artists continuing today.
Kynard, despite the number of albums produced, actually recorded infrequently choosing to appear nightly on the Los Angeles County and New York night club scenes.
Kynard was also an educator who taught mentally challenged children of both the Kansas City, Missouri public school district and the Los Angeles County public school system. In his private studio, he would teach piano and organ to budding musicians of all ages. In addition to his love of several jazz genres that included soul, jazz, and acid jazz, Kynard equally loved and played Gospel music much in the tradition of Thomas Wright Waller (Fats Waller). To that end he served as organist at the First AME Church Los Angeles under the Reverend H. Hartford Brookins before he was selected to the bishopric. Charles Kynard later led First AME Church of Pasadena as its Minister of Music and served as organist for the Fifth District of the AME Church.
Kynard traveled and performed with Gladys Knight and the Pips, and Jimmy Witherspoon, in concerts in New York, California, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and other states. Charles had been performing with the popular stage drama, “Evolution of the Blues.” The good Lord called Charles E. Kynard home July 8, 1979 as he sat at the organ that day playing the music he loved so much.
Charles Kynard was married to the late Alice Kynard and have three children, the late Jeffrey Kynard, Kimberly Kynard of Los Angeles, and noted opera singer, Bradley Kynard of San Francisco. Two brothers, Gary Kynard of Los Angeles, and Richard Kynard of New York. An uncle Ben Kynard, and an aunt Shiverla Jones of Kansas City, Missouri in addition to several cousins in California, New York, Lee’s Sumit and Kansas City, Missouri.
