Lord, Lord, Am I Ever Gonna Know?

This is the Lucky Thompson record to have, eight originals recorded in Paris with musicians who understood his wants and shared his musical and spiritual values. Thompson is switching easely from tenorsax to sopranosax with seamless precision.

The Rise and Fall of Lucky Thompson

By Kevin Whitehead, Contributor

A few years ago, Italian saxophonist Daniele D'Agaro was visiting Chicago, and a critic friend put on a fairly obscure record to stump him. D'Agaro listened for about three seconds, said: "Lucky." Good ears. He knows the distinctive sound of Lucky Thompson after he started hanging out in Paris and playing sumptuous tenor saxophone ballads recalling old idol Don Byas's Parisian sides.

They Say All Music Guide

With the exception of one selection (“Lord, Lord, Am I Ever Gonna Know”), all of the music from this rare performance went unreleased until this 1997 CD. Lucky Thompson (who doubles evenly here on tenor and soprano) is joined by pianist Martial Solal, bassist Peter Trunk and drummer Kenny Clarke for the Paris date. The formerly lost, LP-length tapes find Thompson in prime form playing his relaxed originals. Most unusual is “Choose Your Own,” which features Thompson playing unaccompanied solos, on both tenor and soprano. The CD actually opens with a spoken monologue by Thompson from March 20, 1968, describing some of his philosophy and telling the public to ignore hype and decide for themselves what music is best. Unfortunately, he would soon become so disillusioned with the music business that he would drop out altogether by the ’70s, a major loss to jazz. This fairly straight-ahead date is a valuable addition to Lucky Thompson’s discography. – Scott Yanow
