Mark’s Record Reviews
My girlfriend likes the vibraphone solo in the title track. You’ve now read every positive comment I have to make about this album. Taking its title from the fact that only old “bags” could possibly “groove” to its safe, staid pleasantries, this album features seven tracks recorded on June 29 and December 24, 1954. World-famous tenor saxophonist and spoken word artist Henry “Sonny” Rollins appears on five of the tracks, three of which he wrote himself! And they suck! […]

Jeez, Bags’ Groove rocks. You get Sonny Rollins and Horace Silver together and the joy is irrepressible. Thelonious owns his solo on take 2 of the title trackand Percy Heath and Kenny Clarke are so locked in the entire time. (Whoa, Percy Heath’s bass lines!!) […]

The sound remains solid throughout with the one noted exception. Percy and Clarke provide solid backbone but do not stretch out, all other players solo frequently. The release gives a preview of what the first great quintet will become though none of the members save Davis will be a part. This release shows why I find the mid to late 50’s to be a golden era for Jazz. Analogue Productions and Kevin Gray have done a great job here as they have with the others in this series. These early Prestige records will live long thanks to releases like this. […]
