Review

Review Text Organist Rhoda Scott, in a quartet with tenor saxophonist Houston Person, put on an exciting show at the 2002 Monterey Jazz Festival. Person is listed on the outside of this CD as being on the program, but the results are quite disappointing. For this set of Christmas songs, Scott is heard on all but two songs playing duets with drummer Bill Elliott in 1977. The organ playing sounds like it is straight from a very reverent church service, or from an ice-skating rink, particularly during the first ten songs. Not only are soul and joy missing, but there is no creativity to these renditions of Yuletide favorites, with only a couple mild swingers breaking up the very somber mood. The two songs with Person (and drummer Steve Phillips) from 1993 are not helped by Scott's vocals. So skip this one and look for Scott's more jazz-oriented sessions instead. ~ Scott Yanow
