Review

Review Text With his raw, jump blues-inflected tenor sax style, full of all manner of honks and squeals delivered at maximum force, Willis "Gator" Jackson was never less than exciting as he walked the line between the worlds of jazz and R&B during his career. This generous set features Jackson with the Cootie Williams Orchestra (including Jackson's signature "Gator Tail"), the Bobby Smith Orchestra, heading up a few tracks on his own as bandleader, and supporting his then-wife Ruth Brown on a trio of blues tracks. It's a delightful anthology, full of Jackson's obvious joy at making music. Highlights include the two-part "Gator Tail," the after hours "More Blues at Midnight" (which shows Jackson could blow straight jazz when he choose to do so) and the huge-sounding "Gator's Groove," which prefigures the organ groups that would occupy Jackson's attention in the latter stages of his career. A fun and joyful set. ~ Steve Leggett
