Father Music, Mother Dance

LP (Item 6073) Impulse, 1974 — Condition: Used
Gatefold
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.60 5

Funky and soulful spiritual work from Michael White, and a better set of grooves than you'll find on most of his other records. The set's got a good electric vibe, with a production style that differs from most other Impulse recordings, and which sounds more like it belongs on a Roy Ayers recording from the time. White's violin is fairly restrained, and used more for rhythm than for out soloing. Cuts include "Father Music, Mother Dance", "Commin' From", and "Water Children. Nice stuff, and one that you might overlook if you're not careful. (Cover has ring & edge wear with fully split top & bottom seams.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Merl Saunders
Fantasy, 1974. Near Mint-
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
