Ike Quebec – Heavy Soul


By 1959, tenor saxophonist Ike Quebec was a long forgotten swing musician. That year, he reunited with Blue Note Records where he’s had some hits in the mid ’40s. The aptly titled “Heavy Soul”, his comeback album, proved a revelation to the jazz world. His big, vibrant tone, bluesy phrasing and magnificent heart-on-sleeve ballad work on this album secured his rightful place in jazz history. Among the gems on this album are “Acquitted”, “The Man I Love” and a powerful “Nature Boy” performed by just Quebec and bassist Milt Hinton.
