5.0 out of 5 stars Ed Cherry ... with a melancholic touch.... September 28, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I first heard Ed Cherrys wonderful playing on the tribute CD to Grant Green conducted by Gregg Green. On that record Cherry played one song..Goodens Corner his was backed backed Larry Goldings and Idris Muhammad. Since then I have tried to get hold of some records by Ed Cherry and finally here was one.
Let me first say Ed Cherry is a wonderful jazzguitarplayer influenced by Grant Green and Wes Montgomery as well as Jimi Hendrix, From 1978-1992 he played in Dizzy Gillespies band.. and it is no wonder that Gillespie liked him...I am impressed about several things here... Cherry seem to be a "non flashy" player and seems to be more interested in the overall contexr and mode BUT he can sure groove... the influence of Green is never far away.. which also means that "the blues" is there all the time.. it also gives a kind of melancholic mode. This is kind of modern soul jazz... Dr Lonnie sometimes sounds a bit like Larry Goldings on his B3 The sax player Joe Ford is a nice surprise he plays sweet and bluesy.There are two vocal numnber where Laird Jackson does a very nice job..a slight touch of Cassandra Wilson ..but still very personal.
Favourite tracks are.. "Spirits Speak" and "Lennox Ave"
If you are looking for music played from deep within, and no "show off" then this is the right music for you. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent guitar July 2, 2012
Format:Audio CD
I first heard Ed Cherry on the Small's Jazz Club online stream and loved his playing. I then picked up his CD and digging on that too. He plays Jazz ala Wes and Grant Green and his own soulful sound. Definitely a CD that will be in your player all the time.

5.0 out of 5 stars the roots and beyond... October 20, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is an interesting offering from an interesting musician. Ed Cherry covers many aspects of jazz here. He certainly gives us some classic organ jazz sounds (Ed was with Jimmy Smith for years), but he also gets progressive, using some effects and distortion, and does it very tastefully. He uses the acoustic guitar on a few numbers, with a lovely female vocalist (I bought the MP3 version here, so no credits are included; that is a drag!). Those numbers are somewhat spiritual with themes of peace and love... and done very tastefully. With great variety, Ed seems to cover alot of ground here and it is very well done; highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tight Soul Jazz April 26, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Ed Cherry's The Spirits Speak is a spicy treat for fans of great soul jazz. This CD fits in nicely with classic '60s Blue Note recordings from John Patton, Grant Green, Lou Donaldson, and Lonnie Smith but still remains a thoroughly modern recording. There is more variety than just bluesy organ stomps (although there are several cuts here like that). Ed Cherry goes acoustic on several numbers. Joe Ford's high saxophone breezes along. Dr. Lonnie Smith sizzles. There's even singing on a couple of tracks.

A definite "must buy"!
