Description

The tenor sax was to Rhythm & Blues-hits of the 40s and 50s, what the guitar went on to become to RocknRoll. Put on an R&B-single from that era and you will most likely hear a tenor sax break or solo. Eventually, the tenor players stepped out to make records under their own name. These Soul Tenors were expressing themselves by honkin, shoutin, riffin, riding high on a single note or barking out a guttural howl, as Ted Gioia described it in The History of Jazz, all the while, carrying the moan in their tone, according to Cannonball Adderley. These masters, whose own instrumentals were hits in the jukeboxes from Harlem to South Central and all across the South, played Soul Jazz of the highest order melodic, expressive, straight from the heart. On into the 60s and 70s, when it came to emotions that simply couldnt be expressed with words, artists from Ray Charles via Aretha to John Lennon called on tenor sax players like David Fathead Newman or King Curtis. This unique 10-box-set presents some of the greatest original LPs of the genre. They are milestones by the above mentioned legends of the genre, plus Gene Ammons, Teddy Edwards, Illinois Jacquet, Budd Johnson, Jimmy Forrest, Oliver Nelson, Stanley Turrentine, Arnett Cobb, Eddie Lockjaw Davis, Willis Jackson, Roland Kirk and Sam "The Man" Taylor. The album titles already tell a good part of the story, from Country Soul via Swings The Thing on to Hip Soul or simply Funky.
