Willis Jackson • Grease 'n' Gravy


Review by Richie Unterberger
On this date Jackson led a quintet also featuring Carl Wilson on organ, Pat Martino on guitar, Frank Robinson on trumpet, and Joe Hadrick on drums; Leonard Gaskin added bass to a few tracks. It's respectable, not too cool and not too hot early-'60s organ-sax jazz, with Wilson's organ and the still-teenaged Martino's guitar as vital to the success of the date as Jackson's tenor sax is. Except for a three-minute revival of "Stompin' at the Savoy," most of the grooves settle in for a half-dozen minutes or so, the up-tempo "Brother Elijah" and "Grease" working best. They play a smoldering, soulful slow strut for 11-and-a-half minutes on "Gra-a-a-vy," though. The CD Gravy combines Grease 'n' Gravy with another Prestige LP, The Good Life, that consists of another half-dozen tracks from the same May 1963 session.
