It's What's Happenin'

CD (Item 613710) Hi Records/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1966 — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock

CD


4.50 11

A mod little record from trumpeter Willie Mitchell – a set that's as groovy as it is soulful, with a vibe that's somewhere between 60s instrumental outings on Verve and Atlantic Records! Tunes are a mix of soul and pop numbers, handled by Mitchell's combo with some mighty tight drums and good use of organ on most numbers – which creates a fluid feel that really takes off with the album's fresh and inventive arrangements! Even familiar tunes are transformed nicely by Mitchell's great touch in the studio – as you'll hear on cuts that include "634-5789", "Taste Of Honey", "Secret Agent Man", "Bad Eye", "Wooly Bully", "Java", "Shadow Of Your Smile", and "Hot Cha".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

One of Barbara Acklin's beautiful albums for Brunswick, and one of the hardest to find of the bunch! This might be because the record features a few cuts from other albums – in a style that was sometimes oddly used by Brunswick when issuing albums on its big stars – but don't let that ... CD

Love Fantasy
Polydor/PTG (Netherlands), 1980. New Copy
One of our favorite Roy Ayers albums of all time – and an overlooked gem from Roy's late 70s years at Polydor! This set's a bit more laidback and less clubby than some other Ayers work of the period – which means it's got this wonderful jazzy groove throughout – a sweet mix of ... CD
