Merl Saunders

LP (Item 1255) Fantasy, 1974 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.60 5

We have to admit we've always been somewhat dismissive of Merl Saunders 70s records, perhaps because of the hippy association we have with these bay area recordings. But ultimately there's at least a little bit of funk peeking through on any of his Fantasy recordings, which gets a nice helping hand on this one from producer David Axelrod. Saunders plays organ, clavinet, electric piano and vocals for these eight tracks and is joined by Bill Upchurch on bass, Martin Fierro on soprano sax, Jimmy Nelson on drums, John Kahn on bass, Billy Fender on guitar, and King Erisson on congas to name a few. 8 tracks in all, including "Aunt Monk", "Wondering Why", "Bolinas Brown", "It's Cheaper To Keep her", "Easy Evil", "Ain't No Woman LikeThe One I've Got", "When I Die" and "Righteousness".

Blue Vibes
Jazzland, 1960. Good+
Excellent grooves that mix together vibes and organ! This is one of the early albums cut by soul jazz vibist Johnny Lytle – and although it's more stripped-down than later work, it's still got a nice groove, and a feel that's quite different from work by other jazz vibes players at the time. ...

Gilded Hawk
Capitol, Mid 50s. Very Good-
Tremendous work from Coleman Hawkins – a sublime "with strings" session from the 50s, and one of Bean's greatest albums from the decade! The setting is quite different than other sets with Hawk on tenor – soft strings from Glen Osser, cascading beautifully and gently – ... LP, Vinyl record album
