Jazz in Paris: From Boogie to Funk [Verve]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jason Birchmeier
From Boogie to Funk finds the somewhat under-celebrated swing trumpeter Bill Coleman at a late period in his career, nailing down this set of blues in Paris with a fine group in 1960. The set begins wonderfully with an extended journey through a 16-minute two-part piece entitled "From Boogie to Funk," with the first part subtitled The Blues and the second titled The Boogie. The subtitles prove fitting, as Colemen indeed picks up the pace a bit for the second part, and from there the album never really slows down much. It's this swinging feel that propels the later pieces -- "Bill, Budd and Butter," "Afromotive in Blue," "Colemanonlogy," and "Have Blues, Will Play 'Em" ...

The set begins wonderfully with an extended journey through a 16-minute two-part piece entitled "From Boogie to Funk," with the first part subtitled The Blues and the second titled The Boogie. The subtitles prove fitting, as Colemen indeed picks up the pace a bit for the second part, and from there the album never really slows down much. It's this swinging feel that propels the later pieces -- "Bill, Budd and Butter," "Afromotive in Blue," "Colemanonlogy," and "Have Blues, Will Play 'Em" -- which were all composed by Coleman, as were the two parts of "From Boogie to Funk." Overall, this set never hits a lull and proves delightful throughout, making one wish Coleman would have recorded a few more sessions such as this while in Paris. Joining him here are Budd Johnson tenor sax, Les Spann guitar, Patti Bown piano, Quentin Jackson trombone, Buddy Catlett bass, and Joe Harris drums. This set was originally released in 1960 and also re-released in late 1990 by Polygram under the title The Great Parisian Session and then again thankfully in 2001 by Verve.
