Format: Audio CD
Hats off to Verve for continually culling their vast vaults and re-releasing long out-of-print classic jazz albums as limited edition CDs. Recently this effort has included a bunch of old Argo LPs, including this one by tenor saxophonist Illinois Jacquet. Though I'm very familiar with this legendary jazzman, it's hard to believe "Desert Winds" is the first album of his as a leader I've ever purchased. And overall it is quite enjoyable as the sextet of Illinois, Kenny Burrell on guitar, Tommy Flanagan on piano, Wendell Marshall on bass, Ray Lucas on drums, and Willie Rodriguez on bongos & conga are in top form on this 2/13/64 session. On "Desert Winds" the band breezes through a set of mostly standards with the title track, "Lester Leaps In" and "Canadian Sunset" the highlights. The disc's one Jacquet original, "Blues for the Early Bird," also gives us the opportunity to hear Illinois on alto sax. Overall, an enjoyable CD but be aware this limited edition title will only be available until June 2007.

It's nice that Verve has made this excellent Argo release from 1964 available again. Illinois Jacquet is in great form, and gets excellent support from all involved, especially pianist Tommy Flanagan and guitarist Kenny Burrell. WHEN MY DREAMBOAT COMES HOME is taken medium-tempo and played in the bluesiest manner, which brings out the best of all three frontline men. Flanagan is especially impressive on LESTER LEAPS IN, on which he playes an attention-grabbbing intro and then lays out a sparkling single-note solo later on. Burrell takes a nice solo on CANADIAN SUNSET. Jacquet presents a rare treat on BLUES FOR THE EARLY BIRD by playing alto sax, but is super fine on STAR EYES, which is the highlight of the album. This is one of those albums that could easily have fallen through the cracks into oblivion had it not been reissued; grab it while it's still available.

Nice and relaxing. Jacquet and Burrell are fine together. I especially like the supporting players as well.
