Format: Audio CD
As a professional jazz tenor sax player for over 40 years, I feel qualified to identify those players who possess a unique concept and sound, and execute solo's with ingenuity, virtuosity, and soul. "Lockjaw" is, per the parlance of the working jazz musician, "ridiculous."
NO ONE sounds like him! His phrasing and ideas are frequently astounding, and he plays from the heart (a surprising rarity among so called "jazz" musicians). Harmonically, he has a lot of us very experienced players scratching our heads, thinking, "what in the world was that?" He can funkify your head open, play with brute strength, then play a ballad so tenderly that it leaves the listener breathless. He is one of the most underrated tenor players in history (let's also not forget Paul Gonsalves!). His name frequently comes up when professional tenor players are chatting about what they've been listening to and who knocks them out. In a word, "Lockjaw" is a giant! Do yourself a favor and cop this recording if for no other reason than to have one of the all-time great players in your collection. Stay beautiful!

Nearly all the tracks are with Shirley Scott on organ plus bass, drums, and the occassional added instrument. "The Rev" is really the only such track that moves me. Jaws' best work was with Count Basie. If you want a good small group session, get "Night Hawk" where Eddie duets with Coleman Hawkins.

TWO YEARS LATER:
I have to confess that some of my initial negative reaction to this CD was due to that organ (gets my vote for the most non-jazz instrument except maybe for the harp). I've kind of learned to mentally push it back in the mix and focus my ears on the sax. "Last Train From Overbrook" and a wonderful Oliver Nelson "Trane Whistle" (only large group session here) add nicely to the Jazz Train Songs book. "Body And Soul" is of interest since his mentor (Coleman Hawkins) owns the franchise on this song. Since Jaws' main output was on Prestige, I take back "Not his best". If Amazon allowed changes to the star ratings in the review, I'd give this 4 stars today.
