Jonny Lewis Quartet • Shuckin' And Jivin'

The Johnny Lewis Quartet and a shadowy group in Seattle,
they recorded this one live album in the restaurant "Trojan Horse" in 1972
when Johnny plays with his friends for 5 years as House Band.
Recorded live in 1972, Shuckin' n' Jivin' is a previously lost soul jazz gem. Funky as all hell, the Johnny Lewis Quartet mix the laid-back style of late 60's Blue Note jazz with the funkier rare groove sound of the early 70's. This special edition re-release from the Luv n' Haight Archives Series includes all of the original Shuckin' n' Jivin' album, plus two extra tunes: a killer, ultra-funky version of the Meters' "Cissy Strut" (with a fat drum break you've never heard) and Buddy Miles' "Them Changes."
Featuring Seattle legend Johnny Lewis on sax, James (Moody) Thompson on organ, Joe Villa on guitar and Kenneth Drake on drums, Shuckin' n' Jivin' is filled to the brim with dirty organ and clavinet solos, choppy rhythm guitar, massive percussion breakdowns and the hottest horn solos this side of Maceo Parker.
The live tunes for Shuckin and Jivin' were recorded in 1972 at the Trojan Horse restaurant in Seattle where Johnny and the boys played as the house band for five years.
