Joe Locke, a vibist whose technical proficiency is matched only by his versatility, meets Milt Jackson's last working rhythm section of Mike LeDonne, Bob Cranshaw and Mickey Roker in a celebration of "The Rev's" music recorded live at Ronnie Scott's jazz club in London. While never copying Jackson's style, Locke and the band capture his deep spirit in this swinging and bluesy set of eight tunes associated with the master. This is the rare "tribute" record that stands on its own merits, even as it honors a major figure in the history of jazz.
The Prophet Speaks; Young and Foolish; The Look of Love; Rev-elation; Opus de Funk; Close Enough for Love; Big Town; Used to Be Jackson.
Joe Locke: vibes; Mike LeDonne: piano, Fender Rhodes; Bob Cranshaw: bass; Mickey Roker: drums.
