Bennie Green – Back On The Scene


You too can be “Back on the Scene” with Bennie Green accompanied by Charlie Rouse on tenor sax, Louis Hayes on drums, Joe Knight on piano and George Tucker on bass.

As part of the Classic Blue Note Signature LP Reissue Series, this title was cut on Classic’s all-tube mono cutting system from the original full-track mono master tapes by Barnie Grundman, pressed on Classic’s exclusive 200-gram super vinyl profile and packaged in an authentic tip-on cover, making this a must have.

Writing in an English magazine of one of Bennie’s recorded solos around that time, critic Raymond Horricks said, “His execution is clearly defined, non-exhibitionistic and liberally impregnated with the devises and characteristic phrasing of the be-bop style, yet he always manages to retain something of the real jam session atmosphere.

The Allmusic review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine awarded the album 3 stars and stated “It’s evident from the opening pair of Latin-flavored performances that Back on the Scene is one of Bennie Green’s most diverse efforts. Green’s warm, supple tone and fondness for swinging, bop-influenced mainstream jazz and jump blues hasn’t disappeared; he’s just found new facets in his style… Even with this vast array of styles, Back on the Scene retains all the good-natured spirit and humor of his earlier Prestige albums”
