LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 5

Excellent work by Lonnie Smith – a free-flowing album of long jazzy grooves that's kind of an extension of his Blue Note albums, touches with more of the electricity of his 70s playing! There's some killer rhythms on the album – courtesy of drummers Jamey Hudad and Ben Riley, and electric bassists Ron Carter and Ralphe Armstrong – and Lonnie's on organ grooving alongside a young Joe Lovano, who plays some killer tenor and soprano sax. Includes the 15 minute jammer "Spirits Free", plus "Afrodesia", "Favors", "Straight To The Point", and "The Awakening". (Cover has waviness and peeling due to moisture along the spine and back cover.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Keep On Lovin'
Groove Merchant, 1976. Very Good Gatefold
Lonnie Smith's a long way from his Blue Note years here – but the sound is still plenty darn great, thanks to some fuller arrangements from the great Brad Baker – of B Baker Chocolate Company fame! The whole thing's quite electric – with Lonnie on Fender Rhodes and other ... LP, Vinyl record album

Groove Merchant, 1971. Very Good Gatefold
Sweet funky blues from the team of Junior Parker and Jimmy McGriff – coming together here in a way that's even groovier than some of their previous work! Junior's got a sweet approach to the lyrics that grooves nicely with Jimmy's Hammond – and the set's got some full and soulful ... LP, Vinyl record album

East Broadway Run Down
Impulse, 1966. Sealed Gatefold
One of the most free-wheeling Sonny Rollins albums of the 60s – an album that features some very long, extended tracks that really break out from some of the straighter moments of Sonny's mid-60s recordings! The title track is an incredible 20 minute workout – one that almost feels ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bossa Nova + Soul
Time, Late 60s. Very Good
This LP kicks, and is waaaaay different from anything Marian McPartland ever did! Dave Bailey's on drums, and Ben Tucker's on bass, and the two of them kick her in the ass enough so that she really starts to jam on this set of bossa nova material. Plus, she plays a lot of electric piano here, so ... LP, Vinyl record album

CTI, 1972. Very Good+ Gatefold
Airto's unique Brazilian fusion style meets the electric funky genius of CTI – and the result is a killer album of long tracks with a far-reaching jazzy groove! The album takes off a bit from Airto's work with Return To Forever – no surprise, since Chick Corea and Flora Purim are on ... LP, Vinyl record album

What It Is
Polydor, 1972. Very Good-
Wild weird stuff from Edwin Birdsong – an artist who's best known for his work with Roy Ayers during the 70s. This effort's got a very similar righteous soul sound to some of Roy's early work for Polygram – with a mix of jazz, soul, funk, and lots of cosmic wisdom – although ... LP, Vinyl record album
