From the opening track 'The Next Time You See Me' through 'Waiting for the Plane' to 'Hit the Road Jack' this CD solidly swings all the way. With the stabbing block chords of the right hand and the solid bass line from the pedals, Rhoda Scott and her Quartet give value and pleasure in full. Having two saxes gives this group an added playfulness which allows a different texture to emerge from the playing. Not too ambitious, but solid workmanship and very enjoyable. ~Colin Clarke
Rhoda Scott first played on the West Coast in November of 2000 when she appeared at the San Francisco Jazz Festival. Before this, her occasional trips to the States from her home outside of Paris were usually to visit family and friends in Newark, New Jersey. Since 2000, she has made the westward trek to play the Monterey Jazz Festival; the International Association for Jazz Education (a conference that was held in Long Beach, California); and the Vail Jazz Festival in Colorado. During these visits she has managed to sandwich-in several club dates, much to the delight of the West Coast jazz community. These recent trips, along with her rapidly growing fan base, have inspired this recording.
Two important saxophonists were selected for this session: Red Holloway and Plas Johnson. Rhoda has worked with both gentlemen before and is comfortable with their styles. Having begun her recording career over forty years ago next to a tenor player (Joe Thomas), allowed for a natural and familiar pairing of voices. Lucien Dobat has been Rhoda’s regular drummer for many years now and he provides the heartbeat of the ‘Rhoda Scott Sound’. For this recording, he and Rhoda bring the continuity of their road work into the, otherwise, sterile environment of a studio. The newer voice on this date is that of guitarist Carl Lockett. He and Rhoda played together in 2000 at the San Francisco Jazz Festival and they were eager to match musical wits once again. For Rhoda, playing with a guitarist is not always necessary since she comps effectively with her left hand and plays full bass accompaniment with her feet. Carl’s bright sound and clever fills, however, strengthened the groove and, as Rhoda said, “jazzed things up”.
