4.0 out of 5 stars Opener "Raunchy Rita" is the highlight 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".

5.0 out of 5 stars Just wonderful and thrilling! May 31, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heavy Sounds May 1, 2006
Format:Audio CD
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.
