Sweet Soul revival James Gaiters – Understanding Reimagined

Sweet Soul revival James Gaiters – UNDERSTANDING REIMAGINED:  With James dynamic drumming, sax from Eddie Bayard, Kevin Turner’s guitar and organ from Robert Mason, the music can’t help but be the sweet soul revival you’ve been wanting… actually, you can listen to the entire album, too…

You can also watch James & his players in action when you SUBSCRIBE to the James Gaiters YouTube channel.

The slow-rolling organ and drum duo that serves as the intro to Kenny Burrell’s “Chitlins con Carne” will put you in that “groove mood”, to be sure… when the guitar joins in at about the 2:26 mark, you’ll experience total soul satisfaction… I predict this tune will be getting a LOT of airtime on jazz stations all across the globe!

James and his group give you one of the most unique performances for “Soul Man” you’ll ever listen to… that organ is KILLER, and everyone who reads this ‘zine regularly knows that I just love me some jazz organ.

The 5:56 “Ding Dong” opens the album with some stunning horn work; flawless recording and high-spirited playing made it a favorite for me right away… you’ll be spinning this tune over and over (and OVER) again!

It was the closer, “Congo Chant“, that was an easy choice for personal favorite of the six scintillating jazz tunes James and his players offer up… again, the organ was the highlight of the song for me.

I give James and his players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.98 for this excellent jazz excursion.   Get more information on James’s website.               Rotcod Zzaj
