Odell Brown (Japanese paper sleeve edition)

CD (Item 631878) Paula/P-Vine (Japan), 1974 — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock

CD


4.50 5

A wonderful album by Odell Brown – recorded years after he broke up with his Organizers group, with a sweet electric groove that's very different than his Chess LPs – and also quite a bit different from other records on Paula in the mid 70s! Odell's playing electric piano on the set – grooving in a mellow funky way that reminds us of some of the early 70s Young-Holt albums, no surprise, since Odell and the Young-Holt team came out of the same scene. The tracks are nice and long, and nearly all originals. It kicks off a killer cover, though: an 11 minute jazzy soul take on Stevie Wonder's "I Love Every Little Thing About You" – and it also includes "South of 63rd", "Simizzoke", "Song Theme" and "Tasha".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Vistone/P-Vine (Japan), 1975. New Copy
A crazy bit of funk from drummer Roy Porter – a player who first rose to fame during the LA bop years of the late 40s, but who sounds even hipper here in the 70s! The album's got a madly skittish approach to funk – one that's highly rhythmic, but often in unconventional ways – ... CD
