This spirited set of tunes--or rather jams--documents the original and long-forgotten recording sessions made for the television sitcom THE BILL COSBY SHOW. Fronted by legendary producer and arranger Quincy Jones, THE ORIGINAL JAM SESSIONS 1969 is made up of funk, funk, and more funk.
An all-star band was assembled for this project, and on "Eubie Walkin'" and "Groovy Gravy," the bluesy guitar work of LA session great Arthur Adams adds just the right down-home flavor to the proceedings. Other tracks, such as the swinging "Toe Jam," highlight the jazz musicians on the date, namely saxophonist Tom Scott, pianist Joe Sample, and vibraphonist Victor Feldman. The most memorable track is "Hikky-Burr." This tune features Cosby himself scatting humorously atop an ad-lib vamp. Contagiously groovy, these spontaneous jams feel more like a party than a recording session. They are carefree, uninhibited, and at times, perfectly goofy. Who would expect anything else from the great comedian?
