Legends of Acid Jazz: Tenor Titans

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
This 11-song compilation of material from the Prestige vaults, recorded between 1969 and 1974, captures the time at which soul-jazz was turning into funk-jazz and fusion, emphasizing the role of tenor saxophonists. Some of these players are quite well known Gene Ammons, Sonny Stitt, Rusty Bryant; some famous tenors, like David "Fathead" Newman, Grover Washington, Jr., and Joe Henderson, are heard as sidemen to leaders; and others, be they the saxophonists Wilton Felder, Eddie Pazant, Jerome Richardson or their non-sax-playing leaders Pucho & the Latin Soul Brothers, Boogaloo Joe Jones, Billy Butler are more in the cult or relatively unknown category.

This 11-song compilation of material from the Prestige vaults, recorded between 1969 and 1974, captures the time at which soul-jazz was turning into funk-jazz and fusion, emphasizing the role of tenor saxophonists. Some of these players are quite well known Gene Ammons, Sonny Stitt, Rusty Bryant; some famous tenors, like David "Fathead" Newman, Grover Washington, Jr., and Joe Henderson, are heard as sidemen to leaders; and others, be they the saxophonists Wilton Felder, Eddie Pazant, Jerome Richardson or their non-sax-playing leaders Pucho & the Latin Soul Brothers, Boogaloo Joe Jones, Billy Butler are more in the cult or relatively unknown category. Whether or not you're a tenor sax specialist, if you're into soul-jazz this is a fine anthology of the music as it entered its late phase, clocking in at a generous 78 minutes and yielding a good amount of variety within the genre. Sometimes it gets close to psychedelic funk Funk Inc.'s cover of Curtis Mayfield's "Give Me Your Love", sometimes to more traditional soul-jazz-with-organ Charles Kynard's "Slow Burn," Sonny Stitt's "Them Funky Changes", sometimes to fusion Patrice Rushen's "How Right Now", sometimes to James Brown-ish boogaloo Pucho & the Latin Soul Brothers' cover of "Cloud Nine".
