Trees & Grass & Things

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 5

A great little groover from saxophonist Charles Williams – possibly his strongest album ever, and a set that features some rare funky work from a young Don Pullen! There's a slightly bluesy undercurrent to a few cuts – thanks to organ from Pullen and guitar from Cornell Dupree – but overall, the set's in an early 70s soul jazz mode – nice and open at times, and not as tightly arranged as some of the other Mainstream Records sets. Other players include David Brooks on tenor, Jimmy Lewis on bass, William Curtis on drums, and Montego Joe on congas – helping to chop up the bottom rhythms nicely! Titles include the groovy "Booger Bear", plus "Chop Chop", "Cracklin Bread", "Trees & Grass & Things", "Exactly Like You", "Song From The Old Country", and "Moving Up". (White label promo. Cover has some wear.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

One of the few cases in jazz where an oft-played classic still resonates with power! The record itself is a key cap to Miles Davis' already-groundbreaking years of the 60s – a bold step forward, not just for his nascent electric sound, but also for jazz in general – and the benchmark ...
