Philly Joe Jones - Mean What You Say (Vynyl Rip, mp3, 320)
Philly Joe Jones led a quartet (pianist Mickey Tucker, Charles Bowen on soprano and tenor saxes, bassist Mickey Bass) and quintet (add trumpeter Tommy Turrentine) on an April 1977 date called Mean What You Say. This was a nice blowing date for Bowen, who at the time had an RandB background and had never before recorded a jazz album...Mickey Tucker was very strong on this set and at times almost seemed to be the leader with Jones seemingly pushing to assert his position. Still, this was an enjoyable recording with just that little extra added personality to give it an extra edge.
