Ike Quebec: Heavy Soul

Album Reviews:

Jazziz (10/95, p.34) - "...thick-toned....swinging..."

Album Notes

Personnel: Ike Quebec (tenor saxophone); Freddie Roach (organ); Milt Hinton (bass); Al Harewood (drums).

Recorded at the Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey on November 26, 1961. Originally released on Blue Note (84093). Includes liner notes by Leonard Feather.

Thick-toned tenor Ike Quebec is in excellent form on this CD reissue of a 1961 Blue Note date. His ballad statements are quite warm, and he swings nicely on a variety of medium-tempo material. Unfortunately, organist Freddie Roach has a rather dated sound, which weakens this session a bit; bassist Milt Hinton and drummer Al Harewood are typically fine in support. Originals alternate with standards, with "Just One More Chance," "The Man I Love," and "Nature Boy" (the latter an emotional tenor-bass duet) being among the highlights. ~ Scott Yanow
