Format: Audio CD
The word Groove is used.
Bassist Tommy Shannon qualifies- (of SRV Double Trouble) AND the bassist we have featured on this particular disc- Jerry Jermmott. Mr. Jermmott is simply a monster of 'in the pocket' bassists. Plus he hosted Jaco on the only Pastorius Bass Instruction Video in the publication.
Jerry is sooo good!
This cannot be highlighted enough. Listen to Jerry run the medium tempo of "Every Day I Get The Blues".
It is no wonder that after BB KING won his Grammy in 1970 for "The Thrill Is Gone" he went bowed to Jerry and said, "Thank you!".
That CD was "Completely Well."
Nuff 'said!

Format: Audio CD
The Godfathers of Groove comprise Rueben Wilson (Hammond B-3organ), Bernard Purdie (the consummate session drummer), and Grant Green Jr. (guitars and the son of jazz legend, Grant Green), and Jerry Jemmott (bass guitar).

When on their game, this ensemble sounds just as you hoped they wood: plenty of funky, jazzy grooves; a loose jazzy vibe; and reason to appreciate vintage JBL speakers. It doesn't matter whether the results are soul or jazz or something in-between.

The original tracks are the strongest. It's hard to garner much interest, however, in yet another remake of Just My Imagination, and this one sounds polished but perfunctory. The other weakness, in my view, is that half the songs here do not hold up to repeated, focused listening, and the covers in particular sound too much like lounge music.
