Groovin'

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - William Pearl
BWB is the collective acronym for a band that brings together three giants of the smooth-jazz world: trumpeter Rick Braun, saxophonist Kirk Whalum, and guitarist Norman Brown. For this all-star session, the instrumentalists take on a host of old-school R&B classics, such as the Rascals’ “Groovin’,” Parliament-Funkadelic’s “Up for the Down Stroke,” the Isley Brothers' “It’s Your Thing,” and the Staples’ “Let’s Do It Again.” (A few anomalies find their way into the mix, including Cannonball Adderley’s “Mercy, Mercy, Mercy,” Freddie Hubbard’s “Povo,” and contemporary R&B singer D’ Angelo’s “Brown Sugar.”) The three leaders obviously have this material deeply ...

Ego was left at the door: All three players blend like brothers. The addition of the great vocalist Dee Dee Bridgewater on “Let’s Do It Again” is a special delight on an album filled with pleasures. We can only hope that a Volume Two is in the works: There are plenty more funky classics out there waiting to be worked on.
