They Say All Music Guide

Picking up where he left off with Bass, Buddies & Blues, Keter Betts offers his second solo date, Bass, Buddies, Blues & Beauty Too. The beauty in this case is Baltimore singer Ethel Ennis who joins the band on two numbers; a curiously arranged, but fun “Summertime” and “He’s Funny That Way.” There are only three band originals this time out (two by Betts and one from tenor sax man Jerry Weldon), the standards are quite refreshing. Sweet Georgia Brown sports an arrangement that is pure funk and Milt Jacobson’s uptown tune, “The Rev,” is one of Bett’s most concise and snappy solo numbers yet. Fans familiar with Bett’s many recordings and concerts with Ella Fiztgerald will no doubt get a kick out of hearing him work with another singer again and the relaxed atmosphere of this disc is made all the more appealing by the leader’s inspired, lyrical playing. – John Duffy
