Down At Dawn present a reissue of Ike Quebec's Blue & Sentimental, originally released in 1962. This is without doubt Ike Quebec's Blue Note masterpiece. The result of a 1961 recording date featuring a superb quartet including guitarist Grant Green, bass man Paul Chambers, and master drummer Philly Joe Jones. Mood and atmosphere seem to be the key words for the most of Quebec's music, while Blue & Sentimental, as the title suggests, speak volumes about the smoky late-night feeling of the whole album. The sensuous voice of Quebec's tenor sax shine through a dense sequence of blues numbers and soulful ballads.
