Review
The Kansas City sound brought earthy yet lithe energy to both jazz and R&B: From the impulsive swing of Bennie Moten and Count Basie to Big Joe Turner's genre-straddling work, K.C.'s impact on music can be heard in rock, soul, and even funk. As part of its mammoth jazz box set, Atlantic spotlights such key K.C. figures as Jay McShann, alto saxophonist Buster Smith, and Turner himself. As a sort of potent aside, the disc also features some fine combo swing commandeered by Basie alum Vic Dickenson and Buck Clayton. And while the inclusion of T-Bone Walker is something of a mystery (a Texas native who worked out of L.A. for a good stretch), the inclusion of his cut of the classic "Evenin'" fits right into the flow here. Get out the whiskey and clear the dancefloor.

Jay McShann




Review Extract
Pianist and vocalist Jay McShann, with whom Charlie Parker got his start, is the featured artist on three tracks recorded in 1977, a little late to get that authentic Kansas City taste. To hammer the point home, on one of the tracks McShann plays the electric piano. I can’t fault his choice of musicians, though, which include Buddy Tate and Paul Quinichette on tenor sax, Milt Hinton on bass, and a
young John Scofield on electric guitar, as they play on McShann's "Hootie Blues" and "Confessin' the Blues" and on Basie's rug-cutter, "Jumpin' at the Woodside."
