6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By K. W. Schreiter VINE VOICE on February 7, 2009
Format: Audio CD
This jazz record features the quartet of co-leaders drummer Elvin Jones and bassist Richard Davis, plus saxophonist Frank Foster and pianist Billy Green. Foster's energetic, funky eleven-minute opener "Raunchy Rita" is outstanding. The remainder of the album is pleasant but not as immediate or enjoyable as the opener. It includes an abstract, eleven-minute version of the Gershwin standard "Summertime" and Jones experimenting with lead guitar on the simple "Elvin's Guitar Blues".

Heavy Sounds

There's just positive things to say about this record by these two giants and ther fellow-musicians. The wonderful, stunning bass-solo on Summertime,
the nice idea of having Elvin play a little blues-guitar on the opening of one tune, Frank Fosters ditinctive tenor, and the overall topclass rhythm-section-work plus a most delightful piano-playing makes this record always enjoyable to listen to. Christer B.

A great recording. "The greatest bass solo ever recorded" (as put by another reviewer) is certainly a stretch, but the album is still magnificent. Heavy Sounds is a title that accurately describes the music. Buy and enjoy.
