Alto and tenor saxophonist Rusty Bryant's gifts for what we'll call "multi-crossover" are readily apparent from the two early- to mid-1970s LPs paired herein, For the Good Times and Until It's Time for You to Go. Bryant (1929-1991) could achingly "sing" a country melody like Kris Kristofferson's "For the Good Times" or funk out with the best of them, as on "The Hump Bump." He could handle a tricky jazz-blues arrangement such as "Appalachian Green," offer an offbeat, sultry reading of Dizzy Gillespie's bebop anthem "A Night in Tunisia," or speak the language of the blues fluently, as witness "The Red-Eye Special." And his work reached out to the wider audience on diverse pop fare, e.g. "Killing Me Softly," "Looking Through the Eyes of Love," and "Until It's Time for You to Go." Backed by groups of varying size, comprising New York's finest jazz and session players (including the inestimable Hank Jones, featured here on electric piano), Rusty Bryant is in top form.
