Jazz, soul, and a whole lot more – even a rare psychedelic track from the vaults of Mainstream Records – all brought together in one of the most dynamic entries we've ever seen in the Free Soul series! The cuts here go way past the obvious, and way past the familiar – and the genre-hopping approach is a great reminder that the Mainstream label had a heck of a lot more to offer than just some of its famous funky jazz classics. And as always, Free Soul compiler Toru Hashimoto does a great job of digging up and bringing the music together in ways that really sets unlocks its magic – a whole new way of looking at Mainstream, and one that's really helped us get a new sort of appreciation for the label! CD features 23 tracks, and nearly 80
minutes of music – titles that include "Four" by Jeannie Trevor, "Fuit Of The Desert" by Orient Express, "I Want You Back" by Bobby Shad & The Bad Men, "My Heart Said" by Emily Yancy, "Inner City Blues" by Sarah Vaughan, "Soul Makossa" by Afrique, "The Sweetest Sound
s" by Carmen McRae, "Down Yonder" by David Young, "Sound
