Dave Pike – Jazz For The Jet Set


A classic little album that’s every bit as groovy as its cover – served up by vibist Dave Pike, and one of the first true expressions of his talents! The set’s a standout early American date that predates Pike’s later experiments for MPS – done in a great blend of soul jazz and some tighter Atlantic Records influences – all served up by a hip group of players that includes Billy Butler on guitar, Clark Terry and Marty Sheller on trumpets, and Grady Tate on drums – plus Herbie Hancock making a rare appearance on organ! There’s a great little bounce to most numbers – not really funk, but a blend of soul instrumental and more contemporary jazz styles – in a way that takes a Blue Note groove more towards the jukebox audience.
