Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 5

A landmark bit of indie funk from the 70s – one of the few records cut by Detroit keyboardist Eddie Russ, and easily the best! The album features Russ going to town on electric piano – working with a hip combo called The Mixed Bag, which features some wicked work on flute and soprano sax by Larry Nozero – and a vibe that's a lot more laidback than standard funk, or even more mainstream jazz funk too – a sweet open groove that's mighty nice all the way through! The album's really a showcase for Nozero and Russ' solos – trading back and forth effortlessly over long tunes that roll along in a sweet electric-tinged groove – long vamping rhythms that really seem to drive both players onto new heights. Titles include Russ' classic "The Lope Song", a great version of "Hill Where The Lord Hides", and the tracks "Shamading", "Watergate Blues", and "All But Blind". (Super-heavy tip-on cover – very nice!)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

An even headier set than the famous Overground record by Sandro Brugnolini – a sound library recording like that one, but done in a much more psychedelic style overall!

The best funky album you could ever find by Galt MacDermot!

Blue Note, 1962. New Copy (reissue)
Seminal stuff – and one of Dexter Gordon's excellent Blue Note sessions with pianist Sonny Clark!
