Shape Of Things To Come

LP (Item 51023) CTI/A&M, 1968 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 5

Excellent funky George Benson – mellow grooving, never too over the top, but with a fantastic mellow groove that really points the way ahead to the CTI sound of the 70s! We'd dare say that this is Benson's best from the early solo years of the late 60s – and the record's got a groove that's at once complicated and appealingly funky! No wonder too, since he's got Idris Muhammad helping him out, working under his pre-conversion name of Leo Morris, plus Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, Richard Davis, Johnny Pacheco and others. Titles include "Footin It", "Face It Boy, It's Over", "Shape Of Things To Come", and "Shape Of Things That Are & Were". (Original white label promo – nice and heavy, in in the cool matte gatefold, which has a promo stamp.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Grass Is Greener
Atlantic, 1967. Very Good-
A sweet soulful set from drummer Grasella Oliphant – one of two legendary albums cut for Atlantic Records in the 60s – and the one with a very heavy-hitting lineup! The vibe here is somewhere between Blue Note Hammond dates and soul jazz on Prestige Records in the mid 60s – as ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bitches Brew
Columbia, 1969. Very Good 2 LP Gatefold
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 ...
