Jimmy Witherspoon (Jimmy Page?????) - Spoon In London Spoon In London
Jazz New - LP PRST 7418 Prestige
Sealed 1965 Heavy Vinyl Stereo Original. Is There A Led Zeppelin Related, Jimmy Witherspoon LP? Maybe, Just Maybe.....See Below......“Spoon In London Is An Uncharacteristic Entry In The Witherspoon Catalog. Recorded In London In June 1965, There's A Definite Soul-Pop Slant To The Production, With Backup Women Singers That Wouldn't Have Been Out Of Place At A Ray Charles Session; Brassy, Bright Arrangements; And Lean Blues-Rock Guitar Backup That Leads One To Suspect That An Ace U.K. Session Man Like Jimmy Page Or Big Jim Sullivan Might Have Been Responsible (The Personnel, Unfortunately, Is Not Documented). The Orchestra Was Arranged And Conducted By Benny Golson, And There's A Definite Sense Of Trying To Cross Witherspoon's Habitual Classy Soul-Jazz Over Into The Soul And Rock Markets. Purists, Of Course, Will Probably Be Offended, But, In Fact, This Deviation From The Usual Format Makes This One Of Witherspoon's More Interesting And, Yes, Fun Releases. He's More Than Up To The Task Of Broaching This Territory, Sounding Rather Like A Cross Between Ray Charles And Brook Benton At Times (Yet Closer To Benton). Tracks Like "Free Spirits" Swing In A More Traditionally Jazz Manner; "Room For Everybody" Has A Sing-Along Country-Folk Feel; And "Two Hearts Are Better Than One" Is Decorated By Odd Dixieland Touches.” Richie Unterberger, AMG.... more details
