Ghetto Lullaby (Inner City)

LP (Item 11218) Steeplechase/Inner City, 1976 — Condition: Used

LP, Vinyl record album


4.90 5

One of Jackie McLean's beautiful recordings for Steeplechase from the early 70's – a real return to basics that helped form the groundwork for his soulful playing of later years! This set features two long compositions by Billy Gault, the magical young pianist who graced some of McLean's best work – and although Billy's not actually playing on this session, his presence is more than felt on the excellent tunes "Mode For Jay Mac" and "Ghetto Lullaby". The set was recorded live, with backing by a European group that includes (then expat) Kenny Drew on piano, Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass, and Alex Riel on drums – and other tracks include "Callin", "Jack's Tune", and "Where Is Love". (Inner City pressing. Cover has a cut corner, a strip of tape along the top seam, and some light wear.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
