Great news. Just talked to the great Leon Spencer Jr. In about 3 months, he's flying to NYC to record a new CD for an unnamed (to me at least) jazz label based out of New York. :excited:

I posted this on the CDBaby thread, but I thought I'd put it here as well. The samples on the CDBaby page of this CD are funktastic!

I was just browsing CDBaby and came across this bad boy:

Listened to four tracks including the first . I like it, good stuff! A nice breezy if somewhat predictable version of "What's Going On" :tup

How's this for a greeeazy review? These are both from someone calling himself "jazzman," reviewing The Sermon and House Party, respectively:

This CD is from the same session that produced "House Party" and it is the first half of the best jazz ever recorded by Blue Note records. It is filthier than a flop house mattress and dirtier than a 50 cent whore. This is the best you will ever hear fron Tina Brooks, Lou Donaldson, and Jimmy Smith. This is incredible jazz. There is nothing out there better than this. 5 big Chalupas. Trust the Jazzman.

This is so filthy, I found it in the gutter. This is simply the best jazz CD I have ever heard, and I am very picky. Lou Donaldson's playing on "Lover Man" is the best saxaphone ever recorded. 5 Chalupas.

I can't recall seeing it on 'domestic' CD so Japan would be the only bet. I've a NY USA vinyl and can vouch that this one smokes ! Well worth tracking down.

I have it on a CD made in Canada. It's a nice, laid-back record. Jimmy plays some really sweet stuff.

Unfortunately I found the Groove Holmes and Melvin Sparks L.O.T.A.J. CDs lacking, and I really enjoy them both as players elsewhere. I did, however, really get a kick out of both volumes of Ivan "Boogaloo Joe" Jones from the series.

anyone like this cd?

Own it, like it, and recommend it for those inclined towards groove music (whatever that is B-) ). I prefer Melvin's later work but this one is indeed infectious if lacking a bit in originality.

which one in the l.o.t.a.j. series is your fav?

Leon Spencer Jr. by a long shot. :tup:D . But this series holds MANY treasures.
