Omaha Nebraska drummer Gary Foster produced this CD - for which he should receive, if there was justice in the recording industry, a Grammy award, several dozen bottles of fancy champagne, a free trip around the world, and the keys to a villa on the French Riviera. Powerless to actually dole out such grand largesse, the humble critic can at least construct a sentence that will hopefully make this drummer feel good about his production venture involving Preston Love: it is too bad all records aren't like this.

Preston Love was not a straight R&B player-. having been born in 1921 he came up playing his alto saxophone in the big bands during the latter part of the swing era. In his local area he played in bands led by Lloyd Hunter and Nat Towles and in September 1943 he replaced Earl Warren for six weeks in the Count Basie Band. label, Cissy Popcorn, (not heard here) are proof positive that Love's blues-drenched soul alto is the perfect vehicle for a funk record. Pot Likker and Chili Mac are liable to keep you dancing with their tight funky grooves. The personnel on this LP comprise pretty much the band (augmented by horns) that played the 1970 Monterey Pop Festival. What a sight that must have been! Dean Rudland. A coloured vinyl 180g release for this album, originally released on Kent in 1970, featuring both Johnny and Shuggie Otis.

Notes

Born in 1921, Preston Love has been a professional sideman and saxophone balladeer since the heyday of the big band era. He was a member of the bands of Nat Towles, Lloyd Hunter, Snub Mosely, Lucky Millinder, Fats Waller and Count Basie before becoming a bandleader himself and playing with Lena Horne, his friends Johnny Otis and Wynonie Harris, with whom he had several hits, many of which are considered the beginnings of rock n' roll. The CD opens with the title track,OMAHA BLUES, a blues as easy as a bend in the Platte River and as smokey as midwestern barbecue, a sound as clean and full as a Nebraska summer sky. My favorite cut was Count Basie's classic "Swingin' The Blues," on which Love replicates the whole sax section, overdubbing two altos and two tenors. The remainer of the album is just as fine, either swinging hard, as on the rhythm and bebop number "When You Know You Know," or swaying low on such classic ballads as "Stormy Weather," featuring Mr. Love on vocals. The highlight of the CD is Love's playing and it's a joy to hear it released on this recording. This recording is a fitting tribute to the legend of Preston Love.
