AllMusic Review by

Party Jazz is an infectious compilation of funky, catchy soul-jazz driven by tenor saxes and Hammond B-3s (plus occasional guitar, as on Grant Green's selection). While jazz purists might deride the choices as haphazard, what's here is generally very good, with an artist roster including Willis "Gator" Jackson, Brother Jack McDuff, Houston Person, Charles Earland, Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis, and Richard "Groove" Holmes, among others.
