Give a listen to the blues-soaked groove on Bookies tune
Petes Rockyoull understand why Monk,
Cannonball, Sarah Vaughan and Sonny Rollins loved playing with
Walter. The gorgeous sound of his 1792 Viennese bass gracefully
propels the quintet with effortless, melodic danceability. The
legendary Cecil Paynes mellow, breathy bari sax and
Marcus Belgraves ultra-blue trumpet are out front.
Leroy Williams drum accents are subtle explosions.
And Roni Ben Hurs evocative acoustic guitar work
would make Wes smile. You can hear Bookies note-bending
soulfulness and the big, deep sound of his high-action pluck with
utter clarity. (#07232)
