Product Description:

Why, oh, why must Henry Butler's recordings go out of print? The man is one of the best piano players around, and perhaps my favorite. Unfortunately, most of his earlier recordings seem to have gone out of print. Recently, he has been returning to his New Orleans blues and funk roots, but his earliest recordings are straight-ahead post-bop, like this one. The band here is outstanding, and includes Ron Carter on bass and Jack DeJohnette on drums, as well as a couple of lesser-known but solid horn players (Alvin Batiste, John Purcell and Bob Stewart). The sound is reminiscent of McCoy Tyner's 70s recordings, meaning that it is aggressive, and adventurous without dipping very heavily into dissonant avant-guarde styles. Pre-Rahsaan Roland Kirk would have sounded at home on this album. It is a fine piece of work that fans of jazz piano, and Henry Butler in particular should pick up now while you can. Someday, maybe it will be re-released, as it deserves to be, but just in case, buy it now.
