Sonny Phillips is a decent, if derivative organist who recorded three albums for Prestige from 1969-70 and a pair for Muse in the mid-1970s. This 1997 CD reissue has all of the music from Sure 'Nuff and Black on Black, a couple of fine soul-jazz recordings. The later date features Phillips with tenor saxophonist Rusty Bryant, guitarist Melvin Sparks, electric bassist Jimmy Lewis and drummer Bernard Purdie. The music is blues- and groove-oriented, with "Oleo" being one of the few departures. Person and Bryant in particular have fine solos, while Phillips' chugging organ is appealing. This is his definitive set.

The sidemen (the underrated trumpeter Virgil Jones, the young Grover Washington, Jr. on tenor, guitarist Melvin Sparks, drummer Idris Muhammad and Buddy Caldwell on conga) are excellent, and the material, although mostly blues-oriented, is quite strong. Washington's flute is surprisingly effective on "Our Love Will Never Di. It is a pity that Spencer's career ultimately went nowhere, for he holds his own with his contemporaries throughout this recommended soul-jazz release.

Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist - Artist (Sample). I love funky jazz guitarists like Grant Green, so this was right in my musical wheelhouse. While Boogaloo Joe Jones's playing style is a bit different from Grant Green, I think it will appeal to other fans of jazz guitar, particularly the 1970s style that fused soul and jazz.
