Milt Jackson – It Don’t Mean a Thing If You Can’t Tap Your Foot to It {Pablo}[OJC]


Review by Scott Yanow (allmusic.com)

Vibraphonist Milt Jackson’s recording career has been remarkably consistent, and his Pablo recordings of 1975-85 are uniformly excellent. This particular set features his 1984 quartet (a group consisting of pianist Cedar Walton, bassist Ray Brown and drummer Mickey Roker) performing four obscure group originals and three standards with swing, subtle creativity and soul. This CD is a good example of Milt Jackson’s enjoyable music.

Tracks:
01 – Midnight Waltz
02 – Ain’t that Nothin’
03 – Stress and Trauma
04 – Used to be Jackson
05 – It Don’t Mean a Thing (If it Ain’t Got that Swing)
06 – If I Were a Bell
07 – Close Enough for Love

Personnel:
Milt Jackson – vibes
Ray Brown – bass
Cedar Walton – piano
Mickey Roker – drums

Recorded at RCA Studios, New York City; July 1984.

Quality: eac, flac, cue, log, artwork
