To help offset confusion with the drummers Papa Jo Jones and Philly Joe Jones, Prestige producer Bob Porter dubbed the New Jersey guitarist Joe Jones "Boogaloo Joe." The name is particularly fitting, as few jazz pickers can ride atop a Latin-derived boogaloo funk beat with as much relentless rhythmic momentum as Jones. This, the second volume by Jones in the Legends of Acid Jazz series, finds the great guitar slinger in the solid company of two other giants of the genre--big-toned tenor saxophonist Grover Washington, Jr. and master groove drummer Bernard "Pretty" Purdie. Soul-jazz doesn't get any funkier than this!
