  • Dutch pianist Jack Van Poll got his start in the 1950s by backing visiting jazz artists in Holland and Belgium - people such as Don Byas, Ben Webster, Johnny Griffin, Clark Terry, Tony Scott, Ted Curson and Buddy DeFranco. "Hi-Jackin", recorded in 1972, appears to be his only album using the fender rhodes. He's joined by Mary Heuat on electric bass and Ruud Pronk on drums. It's a cool, sparse session of rhodes blues comprised of some original tracks and a few standards. Drummer Pronk has a light touch and often goes to brushes in order to give the keyboards some space. Heuat's playing with a pick, so her bass often carries percussive duties as well. Van Poll's working simply with the rhodes dynamics, not digging into the inbuilt FX - his playing style reminds a little of Clare Fischer's.
    A laidback bluesy version of Bill Withers' "Aint No Sunshine" opens the album. Van Poll's original tracks are the best here, as he seems to have written them around the dynamics of the rhodes - "Objizdka" is built around a rolling bassline by Heuat, with all three musicians soloing at different times. "Passage To Prerov", which has appeared on some comps, alternates between Van Poll and Heuat taking leads. The only odd track out is Heuat's composition "Married Yet", for two acoustic guitars. It sounds a little like Jack agreed to throw in in as a favour..."A Box for Leslie" is a blues-based track written by saxophonist Tony Vos, who played with Van Poll on his first album and also produced this one…Anyway, chill out with this album and enjoy!
