Keith Mansfield —
Night Bird ... CD Amphonic/Vocalion (UK), 1979. Used ...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
Some of the sweetest sound library work we've ever heard from Keith Mansfield – the UK maestro who made some mighty great music back in the 70s! As you might guess from the sexy cover of the record, the album's got a distinctly clubby sort of feel – kind of a mix of funky jazz and disco rhythms that shows a warm late 70s shift in Mansfield's music, but one that's still totally great overall! The assemblage of players comes together wonderfully – hitting some great funky rhythms on the tunes that almost feel like Fantasy Records soul backings from the time, touched with standout solos that mark a jazzier side of the record. There's lots of great keyboards, even a bit of moog – and titles include "Thunderfoot", "Stumbleweed", "Gladiator", "Making The Cut", and "Night Bird". CD
