Ronnie Foster
Blue Note, 2022

August 1, 2022

Blue Note announces the release of Reboot, Ronnie Foster’s latest album.

Ronnie Foster is a famous American organist, best known for having inspired the acid jazz movement with his albums from the 70s.  Foster (born in 1950) made his debut with Blue Note in 1972 (“Two Headed Frap”) and after exactly 50 years he has returned to work with the Los Angeles label for this new record Reboot. The album features Michael O’Neill on guitar and Foster’s son Chris on drums. The trio is joined by guests Lenny Castro on conga, Luis Conte on percussion and Jim Branly on drums.

The album features different sounds and rhythms. The jazz-rock of the title track, the bossa of “Sultry Song II”, the swing of “Swingin'” and “Hey Good Lookin’ Woman”, and the colors of the ballad of “J’s Dream”. The cover of “Isn’t She Lovely” by Stevie Wonder is very swinging and soulful, while “Carlos” explores the Latin worlds typical of Paco De Lucia, and “Return To Forever” with unison riffs and a pleasant aggressiveness.

“After Chicago” explores relaxed easy listening atmospheres, and is followed by the last number “After Conversation With Nadia”, a ballad for solo piano.
Reboot is a good, well written and well played album that features Ronnie Foster in great shape, helped by a group of top musicians. If you love soul jazz, this is an unmissable record.
