Eastern & Hip – Eastern Jazz Grooves From The Atlantic & Warner Vaults

CD (Item 52554) Atlantic (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock


4.50 13

Trippy grooves from the 1960s and early 70s! This groovy little set brings together 11 tracks – mostly from the vaults of Atlantic Records – all of them featuring the sort of exotic-inflected jazz stylings that were cropping up in a lot of work during the 60s. Many of the tracks have instrumentation that's relatively straight for small combo jazz – but the instruments (piano, guitar, sax, etc) are played in a way that has a bit of an Eastern flair – with lots of modal grooves, snaking lines, and sounds that are reminiscent of Indian or Middle Eastern music. The overall sound is great – a real meeting of world cultures – and the set features a surprising number of great tracks by artists that we already know, but who we might have overlooked in putting together this sort of package! Titles include "Ritual Of The Cobra" by Don Ralke, "Like It Is" by Yusef Latef, "The Lovers (edit)" by Les McCann, "If You Knew" by Hubert Laws, "Effi" by Max Roach, "The Oud & The Pussycat" by Herbie Mann, "Ameer" by Fred Kaz, "Moonbow" by Duke Ellington, and "Himalaya" by Charlie Mariano.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
