Jazz in an R&B Groove

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - William Pearl
A great jazz musician can make anything sound like, well, jazz. On this pleasurable collection a handful of HighNote Records artists -- including vocalists Dakota Staton, Ernie Andrews, Dela Griffin, and Irene Reid, and saxophonists Houston Person, Red Holloway, and Bruce Williams -- take on R&B tunes of the past six decades and turn in swinging performances. (There are also plenty of top-notch musicians appearing as support players throughout the performances.) It’s fascinating, as well as highly enjoyable, to hear tunes firmly associated with popular artists take on jazzy new identities.

All Music Guide - Campbell
Jazz in an R&B Groove is a fine sampling of the jazz artists and vocalists on the 2004 High Note roster. All 11 tracks are cover versions of soul, R&B, and standards including "Let's Stay Together" Houston Person, "The Closer I Get to You" Charles Earland Tribute Band, "What a Difference a Day Makes" Irene Reid, "Night Life" Dakota Staton and "Watermelon Man" Red Holloway. All of these tracks have been previously released but it's still a great way to get familiar with the High Note label and audiophiles will be interested in knowing that this title, and the companion volume Kinda Jazzy Kinda Funky, can be played on both standard CD players as well as SA-CD players.
