Illinois Jacquet • Go Power!



Review by Scott Yanow
On five CDs of which this is the final one, Lone Hill Jazz has reissued all of the record dates led by Illinois Jacquet between 1956 and 1966. Twenty years after first recording "Flying Home," Jacquet was still very much in his playing prime in the '60s. This particular CD reissues 1966's Go Power!, a live trio outing with organist Milt Buckner and drummer Alan Dawson. Buckner's pre-Jimmy Smith style of organ sounds a bit archaic in spots (his basslines sometimes seem to be emulating a tuba) and he can go a bit over the top but he certainly swings hard. While Dawson drives the ensembles, Jacquet easily takes solo honors, mostly sticking to familiar material. "Illinois Jacquet Flies Again" is a very thinly disguised "Flying Home," and Jacquet takes a jivey vocal on "Watermelon Man" that contributes to the spirit of this lively good-time set. The final five bonus selections on this CD are alternate takes drawn from a 1962 album with an orchestra whose main fault is the brevity of the selections. Certainly "Ydeen-O," a jam piece with trumpeter Roy Eldridge and Sir Charles Thompson, should have lasted several times two-and-a-quarter minutes. Jacquet plays well throughout as always and this CD, along with the four previous ones, are easily recommended to his many fans.
