Better Excerpts Needed

EMUSIC-01DE7526

This is a complaint directed towards most online excerpts. When browsing a particular jazz artist it would be great to actually hear an excerpt from one of their own solos. On this example (Jimmy Smith - Foremost Return) You hear some soloing of Kenny Burrell, some of Stanley Turrentine and a grand total of zero excerpts of Jimmy's soloing. Kind of hard to decide whether or not to purchase an album when the very thing you're trying to evaluate is the one thing you're denied.

They Say All Music Guide

Recorded during the same 1990 gig at Fat Tuesday’s as the earlier Fourmost CD, Fourmost Return features Jimmy Smith, Stanley Turrentine, Kenny Burrell, and Grady Tate in great form once again, so this is no compilation of lukewarm leftovers. The music includes a burning, up-tempo take of “Sonnymoon for Two” and a bluesy and lyrical interpretation of “Mood Indigo,” as well as an initially lounge-like “Laura” that gives way to a hot solo by Burrell. Smith also revives his popular “Back at the Chicken Shack” and adds a good-natured but rather hoarse vocal to the oldie “Ain’t She Sweet.” All the players are in top form and this release should appeal to fans of soul-jazz. – Ken Dryden
