Further comment on Johnny Russell's solo

by Nick Dellow


"Russell's last recording date with the Lewis orchestra contains an item of very high rating, "Body And Soul". He has recorded no other solo which may be compared to this one, most of his production is concentrated around the fast medium tempo, and after listening to "... Soul" we may regret this very much. The solo is very sensitive and well constructed with an originality inferior to none. His sentimentality is very
marked, but in my opinion only in a most charming way, a memorable solo!"
