DeUces Wild album for sale The performances are concise, blues-based blowing numbers. DeUces Wild CD music What they lack in compositional refinement they make up for in energetic execution. The one exception is the flaccid reading of the ballad standard "My Foolish Heart." Saxophonist Robin Kenyatta's serpentine facility brings a progressive dimension to the tracks "In the Bag" and "Me 'n You." Stitt, in turn, responds with a slightly more outward-bound approach on these two Kenyatta originals, the second of which is, unfortunately, flawed by an abrupt edit near the end of Patterson's solo. The final track, "Pipin' the Blues," includes a jazz rarity... bagpipes. Sounding like an electric organ (Farfisa not Hammond), piper Rufus Harley's single-note lines fit right in with Stitt's blues groove. A whole album of soul-jazz bagpipes might wear thin, but as a one-off, Harley's performance here is more than mere novelty. ~ Jim Todd Originally released on Atlantic (3008). Personnel: Sonny Stitt (alto & tenor saxophones); Robin Kenyatta (soprano & alto saxophones); Ruf Harley (tenor saxophone, bagpipes); Wilmer Mosby (organ); Billy James (drums).
