Oh boy an album of Blues saxophone and Blue Lunch set the table with a nine piece outfit so I got ready to groove as the disc hit the platter and I pressed play and I was not disappointed one bit.

They’ve been holding what they call ‘Saxophone Shootouts’ since 2004. This album was recorded at a venue called Nighttown in Cleveland, apparently a world famous Jazz Club. No less than three sax players to the fore here with leader Bob Frank on guitar and vocal duty. From the notes this sounds like a real downhome night with the audience well fed on Nighttown’s good food and really set for a good night that the band duly delivered in spades. Well laid grooves, bursting sax in layers from the terrific three of Tony Koussa Jnr., Keith McLelley and Chirs Burge, smashing rhythm section of Ray Deforest (bass) and Scott Flowers (drums) holding it all down and tying the laces while Pete London also covered vocal and harmonica, piano was tinkled by Mike Sands.

Numbers include Joe Liggins ‘Honeydripper’ which more than ably kicks off the proceedings, others include Gatemouth Brown’s ‘I Just Got Lucky’, a super original of Bob’s ‘Chinese Knock-off’ that allows everyone room to move, Sonny Rollins’ ‘Tenor Madness’ to which you cannot keep still with sax and piano vying for attention and flying through each other, takes your breath away!

An excellent and energetic album that deserves your attention and is most certainly recommended by this listener (no way can you remain seated to this!) (Frank Leigh)
