(Jan 31, 2013): Roosevelt “Baby Face” Willette – Goin’ Down

From Willette’s 1961 debut album, Face to Face.  Aside from “Whatever Lola Wants,” this LP contained all original compositions by Willette.  The players are all early soul/jazz.  Grant Green on guitar.  Fred Jackson on tenor sax.  And, Ben Dixon on drums.  Willette is on the Hammond B3.  Willette only released three more LPs through 1965 (Stop and Listen perhaps being the best of the bunch) and died early in 1971.
