This is peerless, majestic small group jazz. Ray Brown and Jackson never sounded better together, which is saying something. Gene Harris is the icing on the cake. In his non MJQ guise Jackson always seemed to react well to strong pianists (Monk, Monty Alexander) and this is no exception. Much underrated. Buy it.

Hi, This is the Best late Milt Jackson together with the album "Soul Fusion" (with pianist Monty Alexander).

Milt is brilliant as usual. Ray Brown is steady as a rock. Gene Harris plays electric keyboard and piano like a champ - he is very very good!

Try to sit still to this swingin blues oriented jazz. You'll have to superglue your right foot to the floor to be able to do that!

Highest Recommendations!

This fabulous album starts with "Sittin' in the Sandtrap" where the great Ray Brown lays down an infectious bass line and Gene Harris and Milt Jackson alternate solos. The unusual thing about this album is that Harris plays electric Piano on quite a few numbers, including this one.

On "Blues For Gene" Gene Harris reverts to accoustic Piano to play a typically bluesy solo that you can't help but love. Again Ray Brown keeps everything interesting with another typical bass line. The title track is another highlight which demonstrates Harris's gospel influenced Piano playing superbly.
It goes without saying that Milt Jackson of course is excellent as well! The rest of the album is of the same standard.

Mickey Roker is on Drums and the recordings were orginally made in 1983. ENJOY.

Format: MP3 Music
Although this album is sadly obscure it ranks up there with Kind of Blue and other seminal albums in my personal collection. Part of the reason is I am a stalwart fan of three of the musicians on this album: Milt Jackson, Gene Harris and Ray Brown. I have the greatest admiration for Micky Roker as a drummer.

The sound samples on this page are more than sufficient to give a taste of the music on the tracks, so I will not bore you with my feeble attempts to describe it. Besides, trying to describe music with words is like trying to nail jelly to a tree - especially since music is a matter of highly personal taste.

I will say that if you are a fan of the Modern Jazz Quartet from which Milt Jackson came, or The Three Sounds where Gene Harris established his bona fides, then you are probably going to like this album. I am also a big Ray Brown fan who, in my opinion, was essential to Oscar Peterson's best trio years.

What brings this all together, though, is the way the blues is used to infuse every track. Harris on piano was - in his soul - a blues musician. Ray Brown had a keen feel for it as well. I was initially surprised by how influenced Jackson on vibes was by blues because I always associated him with the classical infused music of the Modern Jazz Quartet.

Another thing that makes this album work well is the fact that it swings like mad. That, though, is no surprise because Harris, Jackson, Brown and Roker were known for that.

As promised, I am going to allow the sound samples to describe the music, but I will say that I have no other albums (that I can immediately think of) on which the musicians are so locked in. It's as though they are telepathic.

The soul's journey ends at Nirvana. In my opinion this is it, although this 1983 album was a new beginning for Harris who was coaxed out of retirement by Ray Brown. I am so happy he did.
