IKE QUEBEC HEAVY SOUL/IT MIGHT AS WELL BE SPRING Limited 180gram Heavyweight Vinyl 2LP Set

Overview:
“Heavy Soul” is the debut album by American saxophonist Ike Quebec, recorded in 1961. Thick-toned tenor Ike Quebec is in excellent form. “Heavy Soul” lives up to its title. But this album is not heavy on up-tempo soul jazz, instead it’s heavy on soulful ballads. Working with the same quartet that cut “Heavy Soul”, organist Freddie Roach, bassist Milt Hinton and drummer Al Harewood, Ike Quebec recorded another winning hard bop album with “It Might As Well Be Spring”. In many ways, the record is a companion piece to “Heavy Soul”. This is a group that plays with a low burning fire under them and after a while you’ll start to smell what’s really cooking……heavy soul-full ballads with feisty hard bop.
