You Knock Me Out

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Alex Henderson
When Charlie Parker and other beboppers were demonstrating how complex and intellectual saxophone playing could be, the honkers favored a much more accessible, groove-oriented approach. Gordon "Sax Gordon" Beadle's funky, grits-and-gravy style of tenor sax playing is right out of the honker school, and his very extroverted You Knock Me Out is a throwback to the days when Willis Jackson, Big Jay McNeely, Arnett Cobb, Doc Sausage, and others weren't afraid to play the you-know-what out of their horns. Indeed, hard-blowing instrumentals like "Crawling Home," "Lorenzo Leaps In," and "Speed Rack" all of them Gordon originals sound like they could have been written in the late...

All Music Guide - Alex Henderson
When Charlie Parker and other beboppers were demonstrating how complex and intellectual saxophone playing could be, the honkers favored a much more accessible, groove-oriented approach. Gordon "Sax Gordon" Beadle's funky, grits-and-gravy style of tenor sax playing is right out of the honker school, and his very extroverted You Knock Me Out is a throwback to the days when Willis Jackson, Big Jay McNeely, Arnett Cobb, Doc Sausage, and others weren't afraid to play the you-know-what out of their horns. Indeed, hard-blowing instrumentals like "Crawling Home," "Lorenzo Leaps In," and "Speed Rack" all of them Gordon originals sound like they could have been written in the late 1940s or early 1950s. Red Tyler's "Lonely for You," with its dusky, evocative, "Harlem Nocturne"-ish mood, conjures up thoughts of an era of burlesque shows, Mike Hammer novels, and film-noir thrillers starring Veronica Lake and Alan Ladd. Though Gordon loves the honker era, the saxman/singer occasionally detours into 1960s soul. "90 MPH" one of the tunes he sings on, for instance, and "BY-YA" wouldn't have been out of place on a Stax release in the 1960s; the latter, in fact, has a Booker T-ish appeal thanks to Tom West's organ playing. No, this jazz/R&B/blues effort isn't innovative, and yes, Gordon plays his share of clich├ęs, but he plays them with a lot of heart and passion, making You Know Me Out quite rewarding if you're a lover of the tenor saxophone's honker school.
Southwest Blues
A raucous, hard-driving, sax driven set of tunes that doesn't let up from start to finish.
