Baby Face Willette: Face To Face (CD: Blue Note RVG)
Baby Face Willette is one of those mysterious musicians who came on the scene, made a big splash and then faded into obscurity. He was monstrously talented organist with a relentless sense of swing. His first of two Blue Note albums puts him in ideal company with soulful saxophonist Fred Jackson, guitarist Grant Green, and drummer Ben Dixon. The degree of empathy they attained on the various grooves set forth here sounds like they’d been together for years. Added to the original album are two alternate takes. (Blue Note Records)

Baby Face Willette: Face To Face (Vinyl LP: Blue Note)Baby Face Willette: Face To Face (Vinyl LP: Blue Note)
First released in 1961 by Blue Note, this re-issue features all the original artwork. This was the under recorded Willette’s debut album for the label and features his trademark, Hammond B3 style – more percussive than Jimmy Smith’s. A fine grooving soul-jazz outing. (Discovery Records)

Baby Face Willette: Stop And Listen (CD: Blue Note RVG)
Stop and Listen was the last session that organist Baby Face Willette made for Blue Note. He came in with guns blazing on Lou Donaldson's Here 'Tis, made his and Grant Green's debut recordings, and then this fiery trio album in May 1961. Willette was an earthy, exciting player and he, Green, and Ben Dixon would have become one of the premier organ trios in jazz had he stuck around. This great album includes three standards (one a bonus track), four originals, and Nat Adderley's "Work Song." The whole affair cooks from first tune to last. Remastered by original recording engineer Rudy Van Gelder from the original analog masters. (Blue Note Records)

Recorded for the Atlantic label in 1960, More Soul, his explosive debut as a leader, includes beautiful renditions of ballads such as ‘Angel Eyes’ and Erroll Garner’s ‘Misty’, as well as Bobby Timmons’ ‘Dat Dere’ and Horace Silver’s ‘Sister Sadie’. Liner notes include foreword by Atlantic producer Joel Dorn, as well as interviews of Ray Charles and Hank Crawford by David Ritz. (Warner Jazz)

Shirley Scott & Stanley Turrentine: Blue Flames (CD: Prestige- US Import)Shirley Scott & Stanley Turrentine: Blue Flames (CD: Prestige- US Import)
Shirley Scott, one of the most successful of the Philadelphia organists, came to prominence with the Lockjaw Davis trio of the late Fifties. In fact she was signed to Prestige largely on the strength of Lockjaw’s hit “In the Kitchen.” While many of her recordings were trio sessions, it was her collaboration with Stanley Turrentine that brought her even more into the limelight. Those recordings for Prestige (and Blue Note, Impulse, and Atlantic) still sound good today--this group presented consistently interesting fare. (Fantasy, Inc.)

George Benson: Giblet Gravy (CD: Verve)
In the same year that 25 year old George Benson appeared on a Miles Davis LP, he took the rhythm team of Hancock and Carter to make his own. With Billy Cobham, they were the foundation for an album that's half small group and half big band- one of the truly satisfying jazz that Benson made before following his role model, Wes Montgomery, in changing labels and boldly crossing over. Alongside the jazz and pop standards covered, Benson created a new standard with the title tune. The secret ingredient in the Gravy, as throughout the record, is the brilliant arranging of Tom McIntosh, one of the most original musical minds to emerge in the Sixties. (Verve Music Group)
