The Essence All Stars - Jackies Blues Bag Retail CD
On this heartfelt tribute, a handful of compositions penned by one of the greatest living alto saxophonists is supremely executed with imaginative interpretations, feverish solos and vigorous immediacy. The formidable rhythm section, comprised of pianist and former McLean associate LaMont Johnson, drummer Idris Muhammad and bassist Rodney Whitaker, makes up the core of this recording as they accompany a whirlwind of sax greats like Branford Marsalis, Joe Lovano, Donald Harrison and Abraham Burton. Unlike many tributes, this one does not attempt to ape the styling of its honoree. Instead, the musiciansmore… hone in on the spirit of the blues and the composition's unforgettable melodies to concoct some tasteful interpretations like Marsalis' hushed soprano sax musing on "Dr. Jackie" or the exuberant duet between Muhammad and Lovano on "Blues Inn."
Jackies Blues Bag is one of those rare tributes that not only deserves, but demands, continuous play.
