Artist - Baby Face Willette 

Title - Face to Face

Format - Single 180-Gram Vinyl LP in Gatefold Jacket

Label - Blue Note Records

Mastered by Kevin Gray


Hammond B-3 organ soul jazz fans know and love the music of Jimmy Smith, but lesser known is the tragically short life and career of Roosevelt 'Baby Face' Willette who produced some of the deepest grooves ever recorded on the B-3 on just two Blue Note albums recorded in 1961.

Willette's debut Face to Face is a showcase for his blues-drenched organ pyrotechnics. Joined by the brilliant guitarist Grant Green, tenor sax master Fred Jackson and the rock-solid drums of Ben Dixon, Face to Face is a tour de force of rough and ready soul jazz brilliance with an iconic Reid Miles cover design to match.
