Herbie Mann — Mississippi Gambler ... CD 7.99

After dipping into the Memphis Underground, Herbie continues his tour of the funky south – recording here at American Studios in Memphis (only 5 miles from Mississippi, we guess!), with a small combo that includes Bobby Emmons on organ, Bobby Wood on electric piano, and Reggie Young on guitar! There's a relaxed easy groove to the album that makes it one of Mann's most consistently satisfying funky albums – a really cool, laidback style that's a great showcase for Herbie's funky flute – and David Newman turns out some great solos on tenor and flute, which really soup the record up! Tracks are long, and titles include "Dippermouth", "Mississippi Gambler", "Respect Yourself", and "Satisfaction". (Cover has a cutout notch, some wear, and a partially unglued seam.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Law's Cause
Atlantic, 1969. Very Good
A wicked mix of Latin influences, mod sounds, and 60s soul jazz – all set up beautifully to showcase the flute of a young Hubert Laws! The album's got a nice little bounce right from the start – with some traces of Atlantic soul elements – but it soon moves into some of the more ... LP, Vinyl record album

Atlantic, 1972. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
This session shouldn't work, but it does – and beautifully! By all means, an album that includes Diz, Art Blakey, Monk, and Sonny Stitt playing together should be a first-rate snoozer, with hackneyed performances of common-denominator material that they can all get their hooks around – ...

Atlantic, 1969. Very Good+
A genius album from David Newman – and a record that follows strongly in the mode of the excellent Bigger & Better set!
