LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 5

A wicked album of dancefloor jazz funk – featuring the vocals and keyboards of Lesette Wilson, an excellent player who's worked on dozens of albums as a studio musician, but only ever got to cut a few sides under her own name! The album's got a warm soulful finish – right up there with the best funky fusion of the late 70s and early 80s, and made even better by Lesette's smooth yet honest vocal approach. The standout cut on here is "Caveman Boogie" – a monster groover with some funked-up Patrice Rushen-styled keyboards – but the whole album's equally great, a treasure trove of lost tunes that makes the album essential in any groove collection! The track list also includes a great cover of Herbie Hancock's "Ai No Corrida", plus the tracks "Saturday Night Groovin", "Elaine", and "Traveling Song". (Cover has light wear, some small stains, and a bit of sticker residue.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Blue Note, 1970/1980. Very Good
One of Hank Mobley's last recordings for Blue Note, and a record that really shows him stretching it out – hitting territory hardly imagined on his earlier hardbop sides!
