Jay McShann and Milt Buckner join forces for this CD compilation of two earlier Black & Blue LPs recorded in the early 1970s. While McShann is indelibly associated with both blues and boogie-woogie, Buckner is better known as the swing pianist and organist who popularized the locked-hands style of playing adopted by many later keyboardists. Unfortunately, these sessions aren't nearly as successful, since the two players don't really complement one another's playing all that well. That's not to say the music (which primarily consists of originals by McShann) isn't enjoyable. Buckner seems more at home on organ in the up-tempo blues "My Chile," which also adds guitarist Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown, and tenor saxophonist Arnett Cobb. Buckner returns to piano for the soulful "T'ain't Nobody's Business If I Do," with Al Casey taking over on guitar. But the sessions clearly would have worked even better had McShann been the sole pianist.
