Even in 1968 when the jazz avant-garde was becoming quite influential, tenor saxophonist Illinois Jacquet played in his own timeless style, performing in an idiom little changed during the previous 20 years. With the assistance of pianist Barry Harris, bassist Ben Tucker, and drummer Alan Dawson, Jacquet is heard throughout this CD reissue (which adds a previously unissued "Don't Blame Me" to the original program) swinging hard and generally expressing himself in a typically extroverted fashion. "Bottoms Up" (a relative of "Flying Home"), "Jivin' with Jack the Bellboy," and Jacquet's excellent original ballad "You Left Me All Alone" are most memorable.
Incorrect Album Title
This isn't Bottoms Up!, which featured Barry Harris and Alan Dawson as the review stated, but a date featuring Milt Buckner, as the cover art would suggest. It's still a nice overview of later period Illinois, but I'd sure like to have Bottoms Up!, which gets 5 stars from me. Hope iTMS straightens the error out.
