Description
Although not as well known as label mate Jimmy Smith, Baby Face Willette’s (1933-1971) contribution to the jazz organ should not be overlooked. In fact, his 1961 debut on Blue Note, Face To Face—featuring Fred Jackson on tenor sax and Ben Dixon on drums (both unsung heroes of jazz) and the great Grant Green on guitar—is an amazingly groovy soul jazz affair with Smith proving that he isn’t afraid to get downright funky on the Hammond B-3 (check out “Something Strange” and “Goin Down” for proof). Of the album’s six tracks, five are Willette’s own compositions.
