& Hank Crawford Quartet.
Jimmy McGriff And Hank Crawford Quartet: Jimmy McGriff (organ); Hank Crawford (alto saxophone); Wayne Boyd (guitar); Vance James (drums).
Recorded at Ambient Recording Company, Stamford, Connecticut on July 21-22, 1995.
Organist Jimmy McGriff and altoist Hank Crawford always make for a potent team. With guitarist Wayne Boyd and drummer Vance James completing the quartet, McGriff and Crawford explore an appealing mixture of blues, soulful ballads and riff tunes. Few surprises occur but many of the songs (particularly "Movin' Upside the Blues," "The Sermon," "When I Fall in Love" and "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy") are fairly memorable. The fans of these fine players will not be disappointed. ~ Scott Yanow
