Editorial Reviews

Following his two highly acclaimed recent releases Signing and Wish Upon A Star, vibraphonist extraordinaire Joe Locke goes for the three-peat with his most personable and accessible quartet recording to date, with gorgeous renditions of blues and ballads from Bill Withers to Bonnie Raitt. Recent releases garnered much critical acclaim, including a five-star review in Jazz Journal, a four-star review in JazzWise, and rave reviews from All About Jazz, All Music Guide, eMusic, and more. One of the most respected vibraphonists in jazz, as well as one of the most exciting live performers to watch! His stellar reputation as a must-see live act, combined with the promo campaign for this stellar disc, is sure to stimulate a lively touring schedule.

I have listened intently to Joe Locke's vibe artistry, since the '90's, when he was still recording with the Steeplechase label, which BTW are some of the better more thoughtful offerings in his discography. I much prefer his harder edge playing, particularly on "Live in Seattle" and "Signing", which are more post-bop efforts with Geoff Keezer on keyboards. His coupling with Kenny Barron ("But Beautiful") and Frank Kimbrough ("The Willow") are much more interesting and challenging, and should be listened to first for the uninitiated. There is no doubt that Locke gets great tone from his vibe playing, and that's why he still gets 4 stars from me (There really should be a 1/2 star increment!), but the only piece on this recording that is close to a "main course" is "Simone". Truly, I think that Locke is trying to hit the "Middle-of-the-Road" (MOR), which he accomplished. However, I hope that this is only a slight detour, and he can get back to promoting and playing 21st Century Bop.

My wife and I recently got exposed to Joe Locke at the Cape May jazz festival. A consummate pro. Lay Down My Heart is fine music and I'm not naturally drawn to the vibraphone. The covers of "Ain't No Sunshine", "Makin' Whoopee" and "I Can't Make You Love Me" are splendid. The original stuff is nice too. Soulful, mellow sound. Worth checking out.

I have enjoyed this CD; I don't think I have any other CDs with the vibraphone as the principle instrument. There was one particular song that I really liked, but overall, I like the whole CD.
