Stop & Listen
(Bonus Track, Remastered)
STOP AND LISTEN was the last session that organist Baby Face Willette made for Blue Note. He came in with guns blazing on Lou Donaldson's Here Tis, made his and Grant Greens debut recordings, and then this fiery trio album in May 1961. Willette was an earthy, exciting player and he, Green, and Ben Dixon would have become one of the premier organ trios in jazz had he stuck around. This great album includes three standards (one a bonus track), four originals, and Nat Adderley's "Work Song." the whole affair cooks from first tune to last. Remastered by original recording engineer Rudy Van Gelder from the original analog masters.
