referencing Light My Fire, LP, Album, LPS-819, 819

SHOULD YOU PICK THIS LP UP AND GIVE IT A CHANCE? Its a good and loud swinging album with some great Sax solos. Too many of Woody's contemporaries at this time were wasting away in a sea of Muzak in a desperate attempt to still sell records. While Woody and his band are playing the current hits they are doing it in legit fashion. This is a real deal big sounding jazz band wailing out these 'toons and in some places showing up the originals. The opener "Pontieo" could score a '60s Bond Movie while the next song up "Here I am, Baby" is payed with some true funk soul and would class up and Tarantino score. I really dig the Saxophone solo's from Woody on this album especially considering he was a native clarinet player. The switch isn't as easy as it first appears. Morris Jennings is a hell of a percussionist and keeps the album moving at a frantic pace. I am going to convert the Lp over so I can go running to these inspired tracks. My favorite being "Hush" which is just as heavy as the original but with reeds instead of fuzz guitar. Definitely a Keeper and worth rescuing from record bins if you find it.
