Latitude 20

LP (Item 605235) Life, 1968 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 9

Latitude 20 map reading for the big island of Hawaii – a fitting title for the set, given Lyman's frequent work on the isle – home to, and inspiration for his countless great exotica recordings over the years! The sound here is still nicely free from any attempts to change or commercialize Lyman's music – and like previous albums, this one's all in a small combo mode that's heavy on percussion, and built up with plenty of vibes and marimba from Arthur. Titles include "The Day The Fish Came Out", "Island In The Sun", "Our Song", "I'll Take You Home Again Kathleen", "Alfie", and even a version of "Ode To Billie Joe" with a nice little groove!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Awakening
Warner, 1973. Very Good+
One of their best 70s LPs – with a great spacey sound, and arrangements that are a lot more complicated than their earlier albums. Contains the incredible cut "Cosmic Sea", which has a great funky bassline and cool flanged drums under a string section. It begins with a nice break, ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sounds Of Today
Alshire, Late 60s. Very Good+
Groovy set of pop stuff, with a real "turned on" sound – as the label says. Monty Kelly did the arrangements, and he gave the music a pretty groovy feel – and contributed the great originals "Blues For The Guru", "Strings For Ravi", and "Stone ... LP, Vinyl record album

RCA, 1962. Very Good
A crazy hammond organ workout on a variety of standards and a few originals. This is smoking stuff that has a jazzy swinging feel, but is marked with the virtuosity implied by "13 fingers". Sort of like stuff by the John Buzon Trio. Also includes "Bach Goes Berserk", "Sir ... LP, Vinyl record album

Going Places
A&M, 1965. Very Good
Herb Alpert's definitely Going Places by the time of this set – and his trademark Tijuana Brass sound proves itself to be a great fit for just about any sort of number! The album kicks off with the wonderful "Tijuana Taxi", a sublimely jaunty tune that almost takes Herb into ... LP, Vinyl record album

Karma
Impulse, 1969. Very Good Gatefold
Quite possibly the best-remembered album from Pharoah Sanders' legendary run at Impulse Records – a set that crossed over big, and sold to countless folks who might not have bought a jazz album this hip otherwise! The record was Sanders' first in the wake of Coltrane's passing – and it' ... LP, Vinyl record album
