Junior Mance • Harlem Lullaby

Nota de egroj: En mi humilde opinion disiento con Scott Yanow, puede o no gustar el disco, pero opino que Mance quiere experimentar, como era la tendencia de aquel entonces, con nuevos sonidos y estructuras. Un disco que hay que escuchar desde la perpectiva de finales de la decada del 60.


Egroj note: In my humble opinion I disagree with Scott Yanow, may or may not like the album, but I think that Mance wants to experience, as was the trend of the time, with new sounds and structures. An album you have to listen from the perspective of the late 60s.

Review by Scott Yanow
Most records by pianist Junior Mance are well worth getting, but this obscure Atlantic album was a bit of a misfire. One of the problems is that on three of the eight songs, Mance switches to harpsichord, which doesn't work too well. Otherwise, the material, which includes five Mance originals, is blues-oriented but fairly routine and no one sounds all that inspired. Mance is joined by either Gene Taylor or Bob Cunningham on bass and Ray Lucas, Alan Dawson or Bobby Thompson on drums. There are some good moments (including the title cut) to this album.
