Format: Audio CD
It's a pleasant listen, nothing bad about this at all, nothing too exciting either (except for one song - a masterpiece, more below), but it's all enjoyable and tasteful. It's a trio sound, instruments panned far left, center, and far right. It's a way of mixing that sounds a little too empty for my taste, but maybe that's how they wanted it. Rhyne is not a particularly exciting organ player, but that's fine - what he did years ago with Wes was enough to get me to buy his music any time, and he does have a great talent for ballads, much like Johnny Hammond Smith did (although Johnny played ballads with much more histrionics and dramatic drawbar settings.) What I liked about this CD was the song selection and the guitar player, Royce Campbell. In fact, Royce wrote the best tune on the album, the title track. It's an exquisitely rendered ballad, highly melodic and very heartfelt. I can't say enough about this track, it's worth the price of the CD! So rarely do you hear a ballad perfectly written and played. Usually there's an awkward bridge, or too-flashy playing, that spoils it. But in this case, Royce sticks to his gorgeous melody and comes up with some marvelous soloing - it was almost as if Wes had come back to play with Mel again. That tune is the second best tribute song for Wes that I've ever heard; the best being George Benson's 'I Remember Wes' from his "Goodies" album. That's my favorite Benson song, a stunningly beautiful guitar melody, and should have won the award for best instrumental that year if the world was right. No one will ever top it, balladwise - it has that very rare, unique magic in it that makes it timeless. I have to hear Royce's comparable song a few more times, but it might have that magic too. I fell in love with it.Read more ›

I had the good fortune to catch the Ray Appleton Quintet w/ Mel Rhyne on Organ (Peter Bernstein on Guitar, James Spaulding on Sax)at the Jazz Standard earlier this year. Like the album, it was a very tasty tribute to the master. Appleton and Rhyne went way back with Wes, and therefore are well qualified to remember him. - - The album is a great listen. Neither Rhyne nor Appleton have lost the feel. They fall into the Wes groove perfectly. Their playing is relaxed yet deep. - - Though Rhyne is a senior veteran of the Jazz organ world, like Charles Convington (listen to GEORGE BENSONs SHAPE OF THINGS TO COME) he lacks the name recognition of other players like SMITH, MCDUFF and MCGRIFF - - nevertheless, he is the REAL THING and VERY worth listening to. He has a very stretched out style of playing... it is much more modern sounding than most of his contemporaries. A sound that is more straight ahead Jazz and some Wes Style latin grooves, than gospel and blues like most players. If you like him, you might also want to look into Sam Yahel and some of Larry Goldings more recent stuff, as well as Johnny Hammond Smith and John Patton.

Mel Rhyne is my favorite jazz organist of all time. The fact that he's not more well known is a crime.
Master guitarist Royce Campbell (who also deserves more recognition) fits perfectly with Mel's style. A classic CD.
