Hank Crawford & Jimmy McGriff • Steppin' Up

Review by Scott Yanow
Altoist Hank Crawford and organist Jimmy McGriff met up for a second time on this 1987 CD, and the results are predictably soulful and pleasing. With guitarist Jimmy Ponder and drummer Vance James completing the quartet and pianist Billy Preston (rarely heard in this type of setting) sitting in successfully on three of the seven numbers, this is a highly enjoyable outing, easily recommended for soul-jazz fans. Among the highlights are "River's Invitation," "Tippin' In" and McGriff's "Steppin' Up."

1. River's Invitation (13:43)
2. The Real Deal (9:08)
3. Tippin' In (5:22)
4. Vicki (6:10)
5. Be Anything, But Be Mine (6:34)
6. Steppin' Up (3:20)
7. Lift Every Voice (6:05)
8. Something For Bubba (7:10)
