Desert Winds

"His playing on this set is as relaxed as it was once frantic. Most of the pieces are taken at a moderate tempo, and Jacquet worms his way through them with warm sinuous blowing." Down Beat 1964

El grupo se desenvuelve admirablemente el hard-swinging bop ("Lester Leaps In"), dolor, baladas nostálgicas  ("You're My Thrill") y  grooves de los '60s ("When My Dreamboat Comes Home"). "Blues for the Early Bird" permite a Jacquet esforzarse al máximo, mientras que la pista del título, con su bella, serpentina melodía, parece fusionar ritmos latinos con un vago sabor oriental (Jacquet y Burrell entregan unos solos de muy buen gusto, solos líricos en este caso). Deslumbrantes partes individuales y la interacción del grupo abundan en el disco, haciendo de Desert Winds una porción de sutil jazz-soul de los primeros 60's.
En principio reconocido por su tono brillante y el enfoque de proto-R’&B, Illinois Jacquet saltó a la fama en la década de los 40’s tocando con Lionel Hampton, Cab Calloway, y Count Basie. Con VIENTOS DEL DESIERTO (grabado en el 64) Jacquet entra en un talante un poco más reflexivo que el estilo exagerado respecto del que se le conoce. Las contribuciones lacónicas, blues, del guitarrista Kenny Burrell y una sección rítmica que incluye al batería Latin Ray Lucas, claramente groovie, ayudan a Willie Rodríguez a crear sutiles disposiciones de ánimo. El sonido cálido y prístino asociado con la ingeniería de Rudy Van Gelder (el álbum fue cortado en su estudio) no está nada mal.

Hats off to Verve for continually culling their vast vaults and re-releasing long out-of-print classic jazz albums as limited edition CDs. Recently this effort has included a bunch of old Argo LPs, including this one by tenor saxophonist Illinois Jacquet. Though I’m very familiar with this legendary jazzman, it’s hard to believe “Desert Winds” is the first album of his as a leader I’ve ever purchased. And overall it is quite enjoyable as the sextet of Illinois, Kenny Burrell on guitar, Tommy Flanagan on piano, Wendell Marshall on bass, Ray Lucas on drums, and Willie Rodriguez on bongos & conga are in top form on this 2/13/64 session. On “Desert Winds” the band breezes through a set of mostly standards with the title track, “Lester Leaps In” and “Canadian Sunset” the highlights. The disc’s one Jacquet original, “Blues for the Early Bird,” also gives us the opportunity to hear Illinois on alto sax.

It’s nice that Verve has made this excellent Argo release from 1964 available again. Illinois Jacquet is in great form, and gets excellent support from all involved, especially pianist Tommy Flanagan and guitarist Kenny Burrell. WHEN MY DREAMBOAT COMES HOME is taken medium-tempo and played in the bluesiest manner, which brings out the best of all three frontline men. Flanagan is especially impressive on LESTER LEAPS IN, on which he playes an attention-grabbbing intro and then lays out a sparkling single-note solo later on. Burrell takes a nice solo on CANADIAN SUNSET. Jacquet presents a rare treat on BLUES FOR THE EARLY BIRD by playing alto sax, but is super fine on STAR EYES, which is the highlight of the album. This is one of those albums that could easily have fallen through the cracks into oblivion had it not been reissued; grab it while it’s still available.
