This one's a showcase for more chords and single notes, patience with the elementals, not to mention how the band can swing inside this more measured rhythmic gate. That Gene Russell on New Direction. Calvin Keys - - Proceed With Caution.
Calvin Keys As evidenced by his mastery of the instrument in his first album, he is to be reckoned with in years to come. The key to all of this is Calvin's ability to take a direction and to exploit it to the fullest in his own inimitable manner. On this, his second album on the Black Jazz Label, he leaps forward in time ans sets a pace that others will now have to follow.
Exceptional work by each of his sidemen makes manifest Calvin's, as well as their own, musical gifts. This date followed Calvin Keys' first, Shawn Neeq, by about two years. Hazy, psychedelic, post-bop is the order of the day here as well, but as most soul-jazz collectors will tell you, there's always a chance for some monster funk on a Black Jazz record so, as predictable as these releases may be on the surface, you never really know until you hear them.
In this case, the bomb drops at the beginning of Side Two with "Aunt Lovely. As the track progresses, though, it gets more than a little hectic -- especially during Charles Owens' Pharoah Sanders-esque soprano solo. Kirk Lightsey's overdriven and distorted electric piano only serves to add to this tension later. Otherwise, Proceed With Caution moves along rather like most good Black Jazz and Strata-East dates: a touch of straight bop here, some sustained and swirling Rhodes organ there.
Keys may not blow you away with his licks, but he certainly never disappoints. This is a fine record very much in tune with the idiom of the day.
Fans of early-'70s dates by Grant Green, Lou Donaldson, and Cannonball Adderley will likely find this session enjoyable as well. Calvin Keys' second album follows pretty much the pattern of his debut, Shawn-Neeq, but with just a bit less urgency. The basic components are the same: some post-bop, a lot of blues, and a lot of the funk side of fusion.
