Milt Jackson - Soul Fusion w/ Monty Alexander Trio

Soul Fusion with the Monty Alexander Trio


****KILLED BY THE IFPI ON 12/05/10****

Uncle Milty should need no introduction to regular readers of Soundological. Neither should Jamaican-born Alexander but unfortunately he's not as popular as you think he would be with the masses, considering his energetic drive and accessible style. For a taste of more Monty, it's highly recommended you head on over to the colossal Call It Anything.

by Scott Yanow
Pianist Monty Alexander had first appeared on a Milt Jackson record in 1969. Eight years later the great vibraphonist used Alexander's trio (which included bassist John Clayton and drummer Jeff Hamilton, future big-band co-leaders) for this spirited Pablo session that was subsequently reissued on CD through Original Jazz Classics. Much of the material is obscure (including Jackson's three originals), with Stevie Wonder's "Isn't She Lovely" being the only standard. The music, however, is as straight-ahead as one would expect from these fine musicians, and can easily be recommended to their fans.

Milt Jackson - Vibes
Monty Alexander - Piano
John Clayton - Bass
Jeff Hamilton - Drums

1 Parking Lot Blues
2 3000 Miles Ago
3 Isn't She Lovely
4 Soul Fusion
5 Compassion
6 Once I Loved
