This is one of a series of Milt Buckner albums released in France on the Black & Blue label after the organist moved to Europe in 1966. (For more on Buckner read this earlier post.) But the session for this LP took place in Philadelphia in 1972, five years before Buckner died at age 62.
The record was released in the U.S. on the Jazz Man label (pictured above). Buckner was accompanied by guitarist Thornel Schwartz, who made many recordings with Jimmy Smith, Bob Blackwell on bass and Harry (Skeets) Marsh on drums. The sample track is taken from a cassette version of the album.
Question Mark Blues
Rockin' Again does not appear to have had a digital release. Still, vinyl copies of this LP are fairly easy to come by and are reasonably priced. The French Black & Blue pressing appears to be more common than the U.S. release.
The following performance by Milt Buckner and drummer Jo Jones was recorded in France, probably around the same time as the Rockin' Again album was released, although no date is specified.
