Saxophonist Dan Moretti and The Hammond Boys have released one of the best live records we’ve heard this year. Right from the top on Live at Chan’s, they hit you. This is not just music you hear, it’s music you feel. It’s head-shaking, foot-moving soul. Recorded live at the Rhode Island venue, this effort is a great revival of the soul-jazz sound of the 1960s and shows the enduring quality of that brand. The quartet consists of an outstanding lineup of players, including Duke Robillard on guitar, Dave Limina on the Hammond, Lorne Entress on drums and Jesse Williams on acoustic and electric basses. The unit really does honor to the compositions of Reuben Wilson, Stanley Turrentine, Bobby Timmons Gene Ammons, King Curtis and other legends of the groove. An outstanding effort from beginning to end.
