Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Eddie Jefferson had not been on record in quite a few years when he recorded this excellent set reissued on CD for Prestige. A few of the songs "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy," "Psychedelic Sally" and "See If You Can Git to That" were attempts to update the singer's style in the mod idiom of the late '60s but the most memorable selections are "So What" on which Jefferson recreates Miles Davis's famous solo, "Body and Soul," "Now's the Time," "Oh Gee" and "Filthy McNasty"; the latter has very effective lyrics by writer Ira Gitler. Tenorman James Moody, trumpeter Dave Burns and pianist Barry Harris are in the supporting cast of this excellent set.
