Nashville soul-jazz heavyweights the Coolin’ System return with their sophomore 7″ on G.E.D. Soul Records. This smoking 45 features two tracks recorded during the band’s residency in G.E.D. Soul’s Poor Man Studios for their self titled debut full length. The A side showcases a scorching rendition of Eddie Harris’s “I Need Some Money” featuring A.J. Eason, the label’s resident soul shouter holding down vocal duties. The Coolin’ System’s above average musicians and A.J. Eason’s rough and tough vocal performance make this Eddie Harris tribute stand toe to toe with the original.
On the flip side rests a slightly uptempo take on the Jack McDuff classic “To Be Named Later”. The Coolin’ System deliver once again on their patented brand of gritty soul-jazz exhibition. Featuring stand out solos from JD Douglas on flute and Tony Hartman on steel pan, this track deserves to be an A side in it’s own right!
