Ultra-desirable, early 60s St. Louis R & B. The late vocalist Leo Gooden was an important local mover-and-shaker whose ear for talent helped him assemble one of the best bands of its time. Assembled initially to be the house band at Gooden's Blue Note Club, "Leo's Five" soon took on an identity of their own. The driving rhythm section of drummer Kenny Rice and organist Don James was something of a prototype for the small Jazz-R&B combos that abounded on the early-mid 60s, such as those of Jimmy McGriff and Jimmy Smith, while the hard saxophone of tenor player Charles 'Little Man' Wright led a horn section to die for.
