LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 5

A great document of the more soulful shift made by Charles McPherson in the 70s – and an album that features his moody alto work set amidst a slightly larger group – filled with great players that include Chris Woods on flute, Richard Williams and Cecil Bridewater on trumpet, Frank Wess on tenor sax, Garnett Brown on trombone, and Barry Harris on piano. The tracks are deceptively easygoing, but swing with a nice spiritual soul jazz undercurrent – and McPherson blows in some warm, open modes that really grab us on the best tunes. Includes a great version of "Naima", plus the tracks "Bell Bottoms", "Cheryl", "Invitation", and "Charisma".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
