Willie Dynamite J.J. Johnson MCA 393, 1974
Willie Dynamite album cover

Probably J.J.Johnson's finest soundtrack, and very hard to find. Superb, big band funk with the great vocals of Martha Reeves featured on several tracks. The instrumentals are the gems of this album, with strong breakbeats and driving percussion. Particularly noteworthy are "Willie Escapes", "Parade Strut", and a storming main theme.

Overall Rating: 5
