Oscar Brown, Jr.'s vocal and lyrical talents shine on this reissue of his 1972 album Movin' On. Brown's witty, politically conscious scats meld art and humor into innovation. Movin' On's nine songs, including highlights like "A Dime Away from a Hot Dog," "Ladiesman," and "No Place to Be Somebody" enhance Brown's reputation as an inventive jazzman. ~ Heather Phares
