Blue Mitchell • Down With It!


by Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Down With It is a fairly standard bop and soul-jazz session from Blue Mitchell. Leading a quintet that features a young Chick Corea on piano, tenor saxophonist Junior Cook, bassist Gene Taylor, and drummer Al Foster, Mitchell creates a laid-back atmosphere which makes R&B covers like "Hi-Heel Sneakers" or the lite bossa nova of "Samba De Stacy" roll along nicely. Just as often, the record is so relaxed that it fails to generate much spark, but each the soloists have fine moments that makes the session worthwhile for jazz purists.

Down With It es una sesión de bop y soul-jazz bastante estándar de Blue Mitchell. Al frente de un quinteto que cuenta con un joven Chick Corea al piano, el saxofonista tenor Junior Cook, el bajista Gene Taylor y el baterista Al Foster, Mitchell crea una atmósfera relajada que hace que versiones de R&B como "Hi-Heel Sneakers" o la bossa nova ligera de "Samba De Stacy" fluyan agradablemente. Con la misma frecuencia, el disco es tan relajado que no genera mucha chispa, pero todos los solistas tienen buenos momentos que hacen que la sesión merezca la pena para los puristas del jazz.
