4 STARS ALL MUSIC GUIDE

Virtually everything bassist Cleveland Eaton recorded or played on carries his trademark brand of swing and soul. Whether laying down meaty grooves with the Ramsey Lewis Trio, playing sessions at Chess and Cadet, or swinging with the Count Basie Orchestra, his sound is instantly recognizable. Plenty Good Eaton, issued by Gene Russell's pioneering Black Jazz Records in 1975. It was cut at Chess studios immediately following the bassist's departure from the Lewis trio. He enlisted a slew of Chess/Cadet contemporaries including organist/pianist Odell Brown, electric pianist Ken Prince, violinist Ed Green, trombonist Steve Galloway, saxophonists Duke Payne and Ari Brown, and flutist/percussionist Derf Recklaw.
