Album Review

Although Tom Scott recorded one throwaway after another in the 1980s and '90s, he's still quite capable of recording a decent album — which he proved on his 1992 straightahead date Born Again and his 1996 reunion with the L.A. Express, Bluestreak. Spontaneity and inspired blowing are the rules this time. Instead of pandering to smooth jazz radio, Scott lets loose and plays from the heart for a change. The Angelino (who's heard on tenor & soprano sax and flute) avoids smothering this very 1970s-sounding jazz/R&B/pop date with production and gives ample solo space to both himself and such Express alumni as Joe Sample (electric keyboards) and Robben Ford (electric guitar). A forgettable version of Marvin Gaye's "Got to Give It Up" never really takes off, but that's the only really disappointing song on Bluestreak — an album that was long overdue.

Customer Reviews

great reunion

joe sample, robben ford, steve gadd, tom scott - whats not to like?

Jazz fan

I have to disagree with the "professional" critic's opinion that Marvin Gaye's "Gotta Give It Up" is the throwaway cut on this album. The melody-line done with Flute is terrific and one of my favorites on the album. I do agree, though, with the person who gave the album 5 stars and observing that "with Joe Sample, Robben Ford, and Steve Gadd what's not to like?"

Midtown Rush

The cut of midtiown rush on here is different than was on the original vinyl in the '70's. More is the pity as this is electronic where as the original was Scott on sax and some great piano work. If you are looking for the original this is not it.
