This disc is a bit unusual in a few ways. Vibraphonist Dave Pike sticks here exclusively to the marimba, while pianist Herbie Hancock is heard throughout on organ, an instrument he rarely played again. The band also includes two trumpeters (most notably Clark Terry who has a few short solos) and a rhythm section with guitarist Billy Butler. Most of the music consists of obscurities and is open to the influences of the boogaloo and pop rhythms of the era; highlights include Hancock’s “Blind Man, Blind Man,” “Sunny” and “Devilette.” An interesting effort.
A classic little album that’s every bit as groovy as its cover – served up by vibist Dave Pike, and one of the first true expressions of his talents! The set’s a standout early American date that predates Pike’s later experiments for MPS – done in a great blend of soul jazz and some tighter Atlantic Records influences – all served up by a hip group of players that includes Billy Butler on guitar, Clark Terry and Marty Sheller on trumpets, and Grady Tate on drums – plus Herbie Hancock making a rare appearance on organ! There’s a great little bounce to most numbers – not really funk, but a blend of soul instrumental and more contemporary jazz styles – in a way that takes a Blue Note groove more towards the jukebox audience. Titles include “When I’m Gone”, “Devilette”, “Sweet Tater Pie”, “Blind Man Blind Man”, and “Sunny”.
