Product Description:

Light jazz saxophonist Eddie Chamblee makes smooth, sexy music with his instrument on ROCKING TENOR SAX, which features 8 tunes, including "Honeydripper" and "Soon".
Though by no means an innovator or virtuoso on par with the great tenor saxophonists of the mid-'60s, Eddie Chamblee deserved better than the relative obscurity which proved his fate. His aptly titled 1964 Prestige label debut The Rocking Tenor Sax of Eddie Chamblee finds him blowing with a leering, bump-and-grind swagger more ideally suited to a roadhouse strip joint than an uptown jazz club -- fittingly enough, he performed in the Brigitte Bardot opus And God Created Woman. In tandem with organist Dayton Selby and drummer Al Griffin, he tears through scintillating readings of "The Honeydripper" and "Champin'." The trio fares less successfully on down-tempo material like "Softly, As I Leave You" and the closing "Little Things Mean a Lot" -- it's not without good reason that the cover spells out "Rocking" entirely in capital letters. [The Rocking Tenor Sax of Eddie Chamblee was reissued in conjunction with Victor Japan's excellent Soul Jazz Collection campaign.] ~ Jason Ankeny
