Format: Audio CD
Al Kooper, along with Leon Russell, belong to that select group musician-composers whose mark in Rock ... in popular music, really, is indelible although they never reached star status.
His resume has been impressive, just think of his organ riff in Like A Rolling Stone, or Blood, Sweat & Tears' first album -a band he actually founded- or his legendary jams with Mike Bloomfield and Stephen Stills. The man is not just part of Rock's history, he helped writing it.
Yet, for many years his presence and influence has been limited, in part due to his frustration and disdain for the music business -to give you a picture of it, let's just say that his autobiography is called "Back Stage Passes & Backstabbing Bastards- as well as due to limited and less than stellar output.
This last statement, fortunately, must be read in past tense. Kooper new album, Black Coffee, has changed that wit its set of self-penned beauties and strong covers. This is Mr. Kooper's glorious return to form.
Among the best songs here are the laid back R&B of opener "My Hands Are Tied," three killer ballads -"How My Ever Gonna Get Over You," "Imaginary Lover" and
and the Gospel-like " (I Want You To) Tell Me The Truth"- and the slow burner "Keep It To Yourself" which may remind you of Boz Scaggs. The great tunes don't end there yet, to avoid your attention, I will.
Last but not least mention must be made of the Funky Faculty, the band mainly counting on Al's fellow instructors at Berklee School of Music -where Kooper taught for a few years until 2001- and the extraordinary back-up singers. Their skill, soul and tight connection with this music made this music shine, particularly Bob Douzema on guitar and Daryl Lowery on some smoking alto sax.
This a special album, equally capable to make you groove and move you deeply, in turn ready to get the party going or provide the sound of an intimate moment. For me, "Black Coffee" a shoe-in for the "best of 05" list.

This is great album......really wish I hooked up on this when it was first released! Some of the numbers take me back to early Stones and even a little Steve Marriot from Eat It. Had a many good time on Super Sessions back in the 60tes. Worth the bucs and you can Grove to it all the day through. Enjoy

Quite simply an album of brilliance, every home should have one. This, together with the fantabulous Super session (with Mike Bloomfield and Steven Stills) are essentials in any collection. Budding musicians, just listen and learn from the masters!

Excellent CD By Al 15 July 2005
By F. Scragg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Just saw Al Kooper & the Funky Faculty at B.B. Kings in NY. Al & the Funky Faculty performed a number of songs from this cd at the show and the crowd enjoyed them all.

I had to purchase this cd because the songs are excellent. On the cd you are treated to two live recordings, "Green Onions" and "Comin' Back In A Cadillac". He even does a cover of "Get Ready". (I'm sure that you will be singing along with this song and tapping your feet.)This cd has differnt styles on it and I really enjoy all the songs.

I have been a fan of Al's since the Super Sessions and I am sure that you will enjoy this cd.

Black Coffee with Soul 18 Aug. 2005
By Southern Woman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have been an Al Kooper fan for four decades. Al's music, his shows and, it seems, his very being is a celebration of soul music. Black Coffee is no exception...from the beautifully haunting "Another Man's Prize" to the soul classic, "Green Onions", which Kooper BURNS on the organ.

Al Kooper is not only a great musician, but he manages to surround himself with great musicians. I saw him last year with his Boston band, The Funky Faculty who are prominent on Black Coffee, and these guys are incredible. His New York band, the ReKooperators, are yet another group of amazing musicians. And don't forget.. in the late sixties Al teamed up with Mike Bloomfield, surely one of the greatest blues guitarists ever.

Black Coffee is a must have. Every track is a winner. After you've listened, start with the Blues Project and pick up any Kooper CD's you may have missed along the way.

And, by the way, forty years ago Al Kooper was the sexiest voice in rock and roll, and at the age of 61, Al Kooper is STILL the sexiest voice in rock and roll.

the edge of greatness 8 Oct. 2005
By mpbcp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Al Kooper has lived on the edge of greatness for years, with his legendary work for Dylan, with his collaborations with Mike Bloomfield, The Super Session with both Bloomfield and Stills, the first Blood Sweat and Tears album etc, but he has never really taken over center stage. he doesn't really dominate this album either, leaving plently of room for the Funky Faculty to shine. They are one hot little band, and more than cover up for any weakness in the lead vocals of Mr Kooper.
The album opens with the excellent "My Hands Are Tied" , featuring a powerful horn arrangement and a thunderous bass line. It is the highlight of the album ,with the reggae flavored Got My Ion Hue being my 2nd choice.
Am I Wrong is acoustic bluesy tune with some great slide guitar .In fact,lead guitarist Bob Doezema is excellent throughout the entire album.
Going, Going Gone is a whimsical tribute to "all the things we took for granted" in our youth but are gone now.
Green Onions is a blistering live version of the classic Booker T and The MG's instrumental, with great organ and guitar, This song and Comin Back In a Cadillac were recorded at a 2001 concert in Norway that sounds like everyone had a good time at.
Another Man's Prize is the sleeper of the Album - the more I hear it the more I like it. The same is true for the cover version of Smokey Robinson's Get Ready.
Al Kooper really is a professor of music, and there are more than a few worthwhile lessons in this varied collection of songs, rhythms and musical styles

How To Wear Out A CD 12 July 2005
By D. Sean Brickell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'm reminded of so many memories listening to this CD: The soulful sound. Perfectly-imperfect vocals. Air-tight band.

The difference through the years is that I used to wear out a new Koop record within two weeks of purchasing it. Come to think of it, I might well wear this sucker out in CD format as well. It's gonna be played that frequently.

With his staggering repertoire, Mr. Koop enjoyed a catalogue of 30 years from which to chose these songs. Doing so must have been like picking amongst your favorite children. The love and care are obvious, the impossibility of such an assignment notwithstanding.

Let's pray radio somehow figures out where to program this musical treasure. While we're at it, let's hope for a tour of small clubs in a city nearby. Moreover, I sure hope you can't wear out a CD from repeated listenings.
