Reviews :

"Qualities one associates with the jazz vocal group Lambert, Hendricks & Ross - swing, hipness, and witty, offbeat lyrics - were very much in evidence when band member Jon Hendricks released Fast Livin' Blues in 1962. A looser approach, however, allowed more room for the instrumentalists to both stretch out and insert perfectly-timed fills with an air of spontaneity... For someone who has the blues in all kinds of ways, the front man sure seems to be having a good time, spinning tales of friendship, fast living, and fish fries that will inspire smiles more than sadness. Again I applaud Original Recordings Group for picking a less-than-obvious title that well deserves a reassessment and for capturing a natural sound on noise-free 180-gram 45rpm pressings. Every time the horn section kicks in, it's exquisite - rich, sweet-sounding brass in all its glory." - Jeff Wilson, The Absolute Sound, February 2013
