BROTHER JACK MCDUFF - GIN AND ORANGE
Brother Jack's back here at Orgy in Rhythm with another B3 bump 'n' grind session for Cadet from 1969.Soul Strut on the case with this review from motown67:
Another Jack McDuff title for the collection. This one caught a review my eye because of the name and cover scene of a dirty bar counter with a drink and cigarette butts. I was also thinking Gin and Orange, Gin and Juice, what the hell. I also liked the liner notes by Mort Fega about how fake liner notes generally are and what a pain in the ass they were to write. That gave me a laugh. Overall, this is a really strong album. Mac-Duffin, On The Case, Get it Up are all cool soul-jazz tunes. Electric Surboard, which McDuff recorded on at least one other album if not more, is a slow paced jazz cut with a looping horn line, and a nice breakdown which is played twice. The song goes perfectly with the mood of the cover art. There’s also a big, long jazz drum break in the middle of With The Wind to finish the album.
No reissues of any description-ripped from the original vinyl at 320.
Apologies-I missed "With the Wind"from my original rip-find it here.
