Reissue with the latest remastering. Amazing stuff from Ivan Boogaloo Joe Jones! Unlike some of the other players on Prestige during the early 70s – who often got a bit weaker as the decade moved on, thanks to the departure of some of the better forces arranging and producing the records – Jones kept on playing hard, improving his guitar skill to a point where he was riffing and grooving away at a pace that's simply mindblowing when you hear it. Case in point is the mighty "Black Whip", a fantastic bit of funky jazz that cracks back and forth with all the whiplike qualities hinted at in the title – and which has a totally infectious jazz dance groove that always gets us on the floor. Other titles include the original groovers "Freak Off" and "Crank Me Up", both tasty numbers, plus some mellow pop covers like "My Love" and "Daniel".

Barry Goldberg has a hell of a credit score. And he never leaves home without it. A professional keyboard player since his teenage years in Chicago, he's racked up points and enjoyed numerous rewards as a blues acolyte accompanying greats like Howlin Wolf and Muddy Waters; helping Bob Dylan shake rock & roll history at Newport in 1965; organizing Mitch Ryder's torrid Devil with a Blue Dress On; co-founding the genre-busting Electric Flag, and composing best-selling songs for Jackie Wilson, Tom Jones, Rod Stewart and others. For the last five years he's performed as one third of the Rides, with Stephen Stills and Kenny Wayne Shepherd, touring widely and topping Billboard's blues chart with the albums Can't Get Enough and Pierced Arrow. With In the Groove he has realized his long-held ambition. The album finds Goldberg cooking on B-3 and piano on a compelling mix of new, first-rate originals and revisited instrumental classics from the late Fifties and early Sixties.

A wink in the title to the famous Groove Gang but a project and an entirely original cast: an international combo of 9 musicians and the French-Haitian Mélissa Laveaux invited to the voice. From groove to funk or Cuban but also from first class brass (Antoine Berjeaut, Céline Bonacina) and Jasser Youssef's violin, which recalls the genesis of this project: the creation of the music of the film "My Revolution" dedicated to the jasmine revolution.

Recorded on May 21, 1970, at Detroit's Club Mozambique, this was shelved and remained unreleased until it was retrieved for CD issue in 1995. It's odd that Blue Note decided to sit on it for so long, because it ranks as one of Lonnie's better sets. The band, featuring George Benson on guitar, is relaxed and funky without being in your face about it, and unlike much soul-jazz of the time, most of the material is original, Smith having penned six of the eight numbers. Although the riffs often owe a lot to James Brown, this is definitely at least as much jazz as soul, with Lonnie taking a rare vocal turn on "Peace of Mind."

Jazz / Soul Jazz / Hard Bop / Jazz Piano Trio

Recorded in 1970 but not released until 1996, Live At the "It Club" shows the Three Sounds pulling out funky, gritty rhythms out of their basic bluesy hard-bop sound. The group's funky influences are most noticeable in the rhythm section of drummer Carl Burnette and bassist Henry Franklin, who had been playing with Harris for only a short time when this set was recorded. The rhythm section pushes Harris, making the music loose and swinging – the groove matters more than anything on the album. Occasionally, the energy of the Three Sounds lags, but Live at the "It Club" is an enjoyable piece of grooving soul-jazz.
