BENNY GOLSON picture
Benny Golson (born January 25, 1929) is an American jazz tenor saxophonist, composer, and arranger.

While in high school in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Golson played with several other promising young musicians, including John Coltrane, Red Garland, Jimmy Heath, Percy Heath, Philly Joe Jones, and Red Rodney. After graduating from Howard University Golson joined Bull Moose Jackson's rhythm and blues band; Tadd Dameron, whom Golson came to consider the most important influence on his writing, was Jackson's pianist at the time.

From 1953 to 1959 Golson played with Dameron's band and then with the bands of Lionel Hampton, Johnny Hodges, Earl Bostic, Dizzy Gillespie, and Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers.

Golson was working with the Lionel Hampton band at the Apollo Theater in Harlem in 1956 when he learned that Clifford Brown, a noted and well-liked jazz trumpeter who had done a stint with him in Hampton's band, had died in

BENNY GOLSON Killer Joe

Album · 1977 · Jazz Related RnB
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
js
After a promising early career as a hard bop saxophonist, Benny Golson took a break from jazz for a while and concentrated more on studio work and orchestral arranging. When the money laden late 70s rolled around, Columbia talked Golson into recording as a leader again, only this time instead of his classic bluesy bop, Golson recorded this commercially concerned RnB/jazz side, “Killer Joe”. The title of this album may be confusing to some because Quincey Jones had already recorded a very successful version of Golson’s “Killer”, but the version on this album is a re-make, with an even more campy rap about 70s gangsta pimp Joe.

Along with the “Kller Joe” re-make, side one consists of three grooving numbers that fall right in between funk and disco. All of these songs feature good solos and really aren’t too bad if you like this sort of thing. Fortunately Golson does not discofy his “Killer Joe” re-make, but instead keeps the song’s original walking bass groove. Side two opens with a gratuitous pop ballad that sounds like a generic copy of Peaches and Herb’s hits of the time with its male/female vocal exchange. There is not one Golson solo on this bit of commercial fluff. Once this song is out of the way, the rest of the cuts on side two are some of the best on the album. “Easy all Day Long” is a laid back walkin blues with a great Fender Rhodes solo from Booby Lyle, and “Timbale Rock” really takes off as a Headhunters style funk number with driving Latin percussion.

There are certainly a lot of really bad late 70s commercial jazz records out there, but this is not one of them. I would imagine most Benny Golson fans don’t care much for this one, but if you are looking for the better side of 70s party/jazz, this is a good place to start. One more plus is Golson’s classic 70s style arrangements. Benny was an arranger for crime-jazz soundtracks like “Mannix”, “Irionside” and “Mod Squad”, and all of that comes through in this album’s excellent signature horn charts.
