Product Description

Robert Walter says There Goes The Neighborhood is his tribute to the great soul/jazz records of the 1960's. He certainly did this record up right, enlisting some of the legends of the genre on a set of classic soul covers and originals. This album was named One of the TOP 50 All Time Best Soul/Jazz Recordings by DownBeat Magazine.

Musicians: Robert Walter, Hammond Organ, Piano, Fender Rhodes; Harvey Mason, drums; Phil Upchurch, Guitar; Red Holloway, Tenor Saxophone; and Chuck Prada, congas, bongos, hand percussion.

Robert Walter got his start in the early-'90s as one of the founding members of the Greyboy Allstars, a popular band on the then-fledgling groove circuit that also featured saxophonist Karl Denson. After Greyboy broke up, Walter struck out on his own in 1998 by leading the 20th Congress, which gained favorable notices on 2000's Money Shot. Walter still keeps the Congress in session, but this time out he opted to work with the veteran crew of Harvey Mason, Phil Upchurch, Red Holloway, and Chuck Rainey, all players who were there when the funk hit the jazz fan back in the '60s. The session has a nice loose feel to it where we can even hear the players hooting and hollering on "Bakery Blues." Backed by this stellar crew, Walter rips through some burnin' keyboard solos, stepping aside to let other guys get some. Fans will recognize a few tunes from the Congress songbook, but this is definitely an album of new music, with "2% Body Fat" being an absolute killer opener. --Tad Hendrickson

What a storming assult on the senses this album is! Being of a certain age I can best describe it as a funked up,freaked out Johnny and the Hurricanes set. Walter himself plays thunderous keyboards, with an awful lot of Hammond B3, but is supported by a band that thrusts forward at every twist and turn. Phil Upchurch provides a huge breadth of guitar styles - with a lot of wah, whilst Red Holloway plays tenor sax with an urgency that underlines just how spontaneous the recording must have been. The rhythm section of Chuck Rainey and Harvey Mason underpin everything magnificently.Standouts are difficult to pick, but the title track represents the cohesion that the group achieved. I also enjoyed "The tease" and "Swap meet" as well as "Bakery Blues", where Red Holloway supplies the vocals. I always seem to exhort potential buyers to "play this album loud" but this one really does repay listening to flat out and cranked up. Repeated listening suggests that this is going to figure somewhere in my "Best of 2001" list. This is an album that you really ought to take a chance on buying if you like souped up funky soul jazz. Great listening pleasure!

Everyone that has heard Robert Walter's 20th Congress or the even earlier Greyboy Allstars knows that this guy can lay down some of the funkiest and Jazziest keys around. Now, on this album he gets down to funk side of the Blues. Along with some of the most classic artists from the 60's and 70's - Such as Harvey Mason and Phil Upchurch. You totally get a instant smile on your face from track one because it is a wonderful sound of the old blending with the new. It is raw and straight forward recorded only in two days. It is all the groove you could ask for and more. It includes classic covers, and a few tracks from the 20th Congress repetoire, and some completely new originals. All I can say is that when you hear the slammin funk/jazz/blues mix on this album all you can think of is how much fun these guys must have had makin' it and it comes across in the final product. A must have in my book.

Hey man when i heard the frollicking-fingered-fella had a new project out I did not hesitate. I got two copies because, knowing the Money Shot's intensity and grooves, this one had to be just too sweet. I, Like the other reviewer from the UK, had this masterpiece turned up loud.This disk, which includes so many cagey veterans,was all the way live. The Tease and Wade in the Water are supperb pieces. Walter co-wrote many of these great pieces of music with the veteran laden lineup.This is a keeper and meant to be placed near your stereo at all times people. Help came from all areas including his 20th Congress Percussionist, Chucky Prada. Harvey Mason is amazing and a steadying force on the drum kit. My personal favourite is the last song on the disk. Luck has nothing to do with it. The piano playing is unbeleivable here. Thanks Robert for mixing things up and creating a butt-wiggling, jazzy party experience.
