Benny Golson - I'm Always Dancin' To The Music



I got myself a new soundsystem at home and I've been testing it with Benny Golson's I'm Always Dancin' To The Music. I just love everything about this tune, well the intro isn't right up my alley but everything else sure is. Let's hope my neighbours also enjoy this 90 bpm jam with amazing energy, great saxophone action by mr. Golson, beautiful vocals by Maxine Willard Waters and especially those horn stabs. Though the intro doesn't do justice to the tune and some of the bridges might be hard for the dancefloor, this is THE JAM. Too bad the rest of the album is nowhere near as good as the title track. Of course you can always go for the 12" but it's rare and trades as high as $500.

And the strange thing is that the 12 version is more short.

A fantastic track for me!

this is probably one of the greatest tracks by Benny so far...I haven't heard anything that could top this from his album...

^I totally agree though I'm not very familiar with his work during late 50's/early 60's but this is easily his strongest cut after his "comeback" in the 70's.
