Organist Jimmy McGriff
and altoist Hank Crawford
always make for a potent team. With guitarist Wayne Boyd
and drummer Vance James
completing the quartet, McGriff
explore an appealing mixture of blues, soulful ballads and riff tunes. Few surprises occur but many of the songs (particularly "Movin' Upside the Blues," "The Sermon," "When I Fall in Love" and "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy") are fairly memorable. The fans of these fine players will not be disappointed.
