2 - CRAWFORD, HANK - MORE SOUL - (CD) 
HALLMARK


Hank Crawford was still Ray Charless musical director when he launched a solo career, with Brother Ray onhand to lend both a hand and a few musicians to Hanks debut More Soul.Hank assembled a seven piece band for the album, including saxophonists David Fathead Newman and LeroyBog Cooper, bassist Edgar Willis and drummer Milton Turner, all of whom were members of Ray Charles backingband. Rounding out the septet were trumpeters Phillip Guilbeau and John Hunt. Ray Charles himself handledarrangements on The Story, with Hank taking care of those duties on the remaining six tracks.If recording as a septet on a debut outing was something of a risky venture, then More Soul showed that HankCrawford could pull it off.The playing is tight, no more or no less than youd expect given the years of experience within the group, but thisis in no way formulaic. More Soul set something of a template for Hank; hard bop jazz inflected with more than ahint of soul. It sounds as fresh now as it did when originally released in 1960.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Boos Tune 02. Angel Eyes 03. Four Five Six 04. The Story 05. Dat Dere 06. Misty 07. Sister Sadie
