Album Notes
Here is a review of the C.D. "Movin' and Groovin'" The Juli
Wood Quintet featuring Mel Rhyne, as it appeared in the Dec.
1998 issue of JAZZTIMES;

One of the pleasures of attending the Chicago Jazz
Festival over Labor Day weekend each year is being able to hear the bevy of local players who make up the Windy City jazz scene. Last years treat was Juli Wood, a gutsy tenor and baritone saxophonist who sings with the earthy gusto of an r & b diva filtered through a hard bop sensibility.
On her debut as a leader, Wood is accompanied by the same band that rocked the big stage in Bryant Park last year- trumpeter Mike Plog, drummer Dave Bayles, percussionist Dumah Saafir and Hammond B-3 organ legend
Melvin Rhyne(a member of the original Wes Montgomery trio).
Wood rips with bar-walking gusto on Wayne Shorter's
"Tell It Like It Is" and swaggers on Rhyne's funk-swing romp
"Killer Ray", named for his Indianapolis running buddy, drummer Killer Ray Appleton. She brandishes a mean bari on
Rhyne's Latin-flavored "Night Vigil" and on a 12/8 rendition of Horace Silver's "Enchantment". As a singer she conjures up a smokey, seductive vibe with "You Won't Forget Me".
Her other vocal number, a soulful reading of Nat Adderly's
"Old Country", recalls the sly phrasing of Etta James. Then to take things up a notch, she pulls out a bari sax and answers her own vocals with a double time chorus of hot bop.
A double threat.
The criminally under-appreciated Rhyne--who has released a series of albums over the last five years for the Criss Cross label- is in typically fine form here, walking
left hand bass lines while layering on hip right hand
statements. His presence elevates this consistantly swinging
and stimulating set.
