Format: Audio CD
this is, along with volume 1, the funkiest sounds record you can buy without checking ebay for their last few studio records. the feel of this record is more down home and bluesy than volume 1, and the beatles covers are superb. pick this up if you like funky jazz. it grooves hard and has no production cheeze.

All the rave reviews about this album are justified; this is a superb, sizzling, and very soulful live recording from 1970. According to the liner notes this recording was made "almost as an afterthought" by Blue Note. But afterwards, the label decided not to release the show, keeping it in the Blue Note vaults until it finally saw the light of day in 2000. But patience is rewarded; this is a fantastic album.

The three Beatles songs that close the album might not seem like inspired choices, and yet they are among the highlights of the album. The 10-minute version of "Eleanor Rigby" in particular is creative and mesmerizing. Simply a terrific arrangement.In the liner notes that come with the CD there is a beautiful description of Gene Harris and his style, calling it "the sound of joy and happiness, of soulfulness and sophistication." That really says a lot, and it's very apt description of this underrated pianist and his two other "Three Sounds" members. Call this soul-jazz, pop-jazz, or just plain jazz, but it swings and packs a mighty soulful and sometimes funky punch.

Like another reviewer, I'm puzzled why Blue Note split this set into set volumes. That's especially frustrating seeing as how this volume is easy to find, but the first volume is only available from secondhand dealers. Nevertheless, I'm so impressed with this album that I plan to seek out the first one too. This CD comes with an 8-page booklet with an essay about these recordings and the career of Gene Harris written by Bob Belden.

This is a really great jazz album, especially if you like soul jazz."Live at the It Club,' of course, is a set of two records sold separately: volume 1 finds the Three Sounds playing more acoustic funk jazz. This latter record is a more soulful set of mostly down tempo (and a few mid-tempo) songs that are just dripping with sou.

For my money, this is the better set, especially if you like gospel-infused jazz. My favorites are the mid-tempo Put Down Train, the "after hours" feel of Down Home, the dynamic gospel-infused "Black Fox" and the three Beatles covers at the end (all with very original and unexpected arrangements.

My only real complaint - and it is more a complaint about the Three Sounds format than this record - is that I'd much prefer another solo instrument to add a bit more diversity. I LOVE Gene Harris's melodic and soulful piano, but after a while, Three Sounds records become a bit monotonous - the Gene Harris show, really.

Still, that is a minor gripe, as this album doesn't come off as monotonously as some other Three Sounds albums, largely because of the group's frequent use of changes in dynamics to keep the energy diversified.

If you are at all into gospel-infused soul jazz, then Live at the It Club (vol 2) is a record you MUST have.
