Smokin' Out Loud

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - William Pearl
Mike LeDonne may have come to prominence in the jazz world as a fluent pianist, but he’s also a monster on the Hammond organ. This old-school-styled album finds him in fast company with three perfectly suited cohorts: tenor saxophonist Eric Alexander, guitarist Peter Bernstein, and drummer Joe Farnsworth. There’s plenty of room for everyone to stretch out, and these impassioned swingers make the most of it. Even on the ballads and medium-tempo pieces, the groove stays up; the enthusiasm generated by the music is infectious. LeDonne digs into some surprising material as well: The classic pop hits “After the Love Is Gone,” “They Long to Be Close to You,” and “Superstar” ...

Barnes & Noble - William Pearl
Mike LeDonne may have come to prominence in the jazz world as a fluent pianist, but he’s also a monster on the Hammond organ. This old-school-styled album finds him in fast company with three perfectly suited cohorts: tenor saxophonist Eric Alexander, guitarist Peter Bernstein, and drummer Joe Farnsworth. There’s plenty of room for everyone to stretch out, and these impassioned swingers make the most of it. Even on the ballads and medium-tempo pieces, the groove stays up; the enthusiasm generated by the music is infectious. LeDonne digs into some surprising material as well: The classic pop hits “After the Love Is Gone,” “They Long to Be Close to You,” and “Superstar” sit nicely next to jazz originals by Jimmy Smith, Donald Byrd, Howard McGhee, and the leader himself. There have been plenty of organ-based quartet albums over the past five decades, but a first-class recording like this just proves there’s life in the genre yet.
All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Mike LeDonne, who is better known as a pianist, is also a talented organist in the Jimmy Smith/Charles Earland/Don Patterson tradition. His quartet set is straight-ahead hard bop rather than soul-jazz, with excellent solos from LeDonne, tenor saxophonist Eric Alexander, and guitarist Peter Bernstein who is particularly strong on "Delilah" and fine support from drummer Joe Farnsworth. Most memorable are a pair of medium-tempo blues "You'll See" and "Pisces Soul", "Silverdust" which is based partly on the chord changes of "King Porter Stomp", and a cooking version of "Close to You." Although nothing innovative or overly surprising occurs, the music is well played and Alexander in particular has plenty of spirited solos.
