Mike LeDonne”s splendid Groover Quartet has earned a cozy groove for itself, somewhere between fresh from the oven and the halcyon days of organ
combos led by Jimmy Smith, Charles Earland, Jimmy McGriff, Richard
“Groove” Holmes, Shirley Scott, Don Patterson and others. While
embracing their essential groundwork on the one hand, LeDonne moves
steadily forward with the other, lending a more contemporary voice to
what has been a popular staple of the jazz repertoire for well over half a century.
Far from alone in this pursuit, LeDonne is aided and
abetted by a trio of eloquent trend-setters: long-time colleagues Eric
Alexander on tenor sax, guitarist Peter Bernstein and drummer Joe
Farnsworth. They are enhanced along the way by another modernist, alto
saxophonist Vincent Herring, who adds warmth and color to “I”d Never
Change a Thing About You,” bassist Ray Brown”s piquant “Gravy Blues” and LeDonne”s fast-paced salute to alto saxophonist Lou Donaldson, “Sweet
Papa Lou.” Speaking of “I”d Never Change a Thing,” the first of
LeDonne”s three original compositions, the charming wire-to-wire gallop
was written for his daughter, Mary, who has multiple disabilities and
for whom LeDonne founded the non-profit Disability Pride NYC.
LeDonne and Co. (sans Alexander) are at their soulful best on the lone
standard, Mack Gordon / Harry Warren”s “At Last,” a gorgeous ballad
first heard in the 1942 film Orchestra Wives. “At Last” is followed by
LeDonne”s well-sculpted arrangement of the pop song “This Will Be an
Everlasting Love” and the fast-moving finale, “A Lot of Livin” to Do,”
from the Broadway musical Bye Bye Birdie. Alexander hammers that one out of the park, a feat he duplicates on every turn at bat. The title song, another LeDonne original, is an ambling blues taken from the classic
organ trio playbook with Alexander”s razor-sharp tenor cutting straight
to the chase.
The relaxed groove prevails on LeDonne”s
arrangement of “La La Means I Love You,” a pop hit for the Delfonics in
1968, before giving way to the livelier cadences of trumpeter Donald
Byrd”s “Fly Little Bird Fly” (another tour de force for LeDonne and
Alexander). Regardless of mood or tempo, LeDonne”s quartet, which has
been a working group for some years now, is emphatically secure and
firmly in the pocket. Farnsworth”s timekeeping is unerring, Bernstein
excels whether comping or soloing, and as for LeDonne and Alexander,
their ardor is amplified by exceptional technique. Herring”s assertive
cameos are icing on an already appetizing cake. ~by Jack Bowers
