HIT LIST REVIEWS

Charlie Apicella
with his
trusty Guild.

ORGAN-IZED

T

he organ trio - or
in the case of the
Charlie Apicella
album, the organ quartet
- is alive and well. Each
of these new releases
features organ and guitar,
and to anyone who thinks
the genre is too narrow,
here's ample proof that's
not true.
Veteran jazz guitarist
John Hart, organist Adam
Scone, and drummer Rudy
Albin Petschauer tackle
songs not by the original
British invasion, but songs
by British females. For
instance, you get Amy
Winehouse's "Rehab"
done as a rollicking jazz
march that morphs into
pure swing with Hart
leading the way with his
imaginative and soulful
playing. Tunes by Sade,
Adele, and others feature
fine playing by all three.
Hart's ballad playing
shines on the start of
"Turning Tables" before it
starts swinging. Lorde's
"Royals" shows him using
a chorused, big sound
that eventually turns
the song into an all-out
rocker by the end. If that
tone doesn't surprise
you, check out "Rolling
In The Deep" where he

One Night Only: A Tribute
to Jack McDuff

Dr. Lonnie Smith
All In My Mind

digs out a wah. There's
plenty of great jazz playing
here, but on this fine
collection he broadens
to show us some fine
chops in other areas too.
New York's Apicella
is a big-time soloist and
comping artist and his
strengths shine on his
latest. His playing behind
Sonny Fortune's soloing
on "Lookin' East" is a joy
to hear. "Minor Mishap"
gives everyone's bop
chops a showing, Apicella
contributing a smart, bluesy solo. "Sleeping Susan"
is light swing with a solo
from Apicella that displays
his great choice of notes.
The liner notes say
they wanted to do tunes
in the spirit of organist
Jack McDuff and they
do that goal justice. This
is a swinging, bluesy
record that puts you in
a smoky nightclub.
Lonnie Smith needs no
introduction. Numerous
guitarists have filtered
through his bands and
gone on to bigger and
better things. This fine
live set, recorded at the
Jazz Standard in New
York features guitarist
Jonathan Kreisberg, and
it's perfect in pretty much
every way. Kreisberg
delivers blistering solos
with surprising, but onthe-money note choices
whether the tune is a ballad ("Devika"), a swinger
("Up Jumped Spring"),
or a jazzed-up version
of a pop hit ("50 Ways
To Leave Your Lover").
While there are
certainly areas where
the sounds of these three
records overlap, the variety displayed shows that
the organ/guitar marriage
will continue as long as
there is jazz. - John Heidt

Then the hit parade begins, including
"I'll Supply The Love," "Pamela," "99,"
and "Rosanna." You'll also find the '78
smash that started it all, "Hold The Line,"
featuring one of the most notoriously
undermixed guitar solos in rock history.
Lastly, if you've ever doubted the band's
collective musicianship, cue up the fusion scorcher, "Jake To The Bone." It's a
tour-de-force Lukather performance - and
ample proof of Toto's seismic virtuosity.
- Pete Prown

Jack White

Boarding House
Reach
Jack White's first
solo album in four
years is a contemporary rock record
that brilliantly presents his POV with artsy
hard left turns. Basic tracks feature White
on drums, guitars, vocals, and synthesizer.
It's augmented by a collection of session
cats from the neo-soul and hip-hop communities on a number of instruments.
Australian blues artist C.W. Stoneking is
featured on "Abulia And Arkrasia."
Beginning with the escalating power of
"Connected By Love" and the lo-fi "Why
Walk A Dog?" White has you riveted to
your seat. The album is a refresher course
in what it was like to sit through an entire
album with range and breadth.
"Corporation" makes great use of
provocative backup singers coupled with
dirty organ and filthier guitars. "Hypermisophoniac" has a massive hook, while
the fuzz saturated riffs on "Over And
Over And Over" and "Ice Station Zebra"
are arranged between White's own clever
rap style.
There's spoken word and quasi-social
commentary like on "Everything You've
Ever Learned," "Ezmerelda Steals The
Show," and "Get In The Mind Shaft," but
it all works in conjunction with conga
breaks, violin, nifty sound effects, blues
guitar, and White's patented sardonic
humor. - Oscar Jordan

As the title suggests, Eric Johnson's latest album
is indeed a collage.
