Wendell Harrison — Evening With The Devil ... LP 9.99

One of the rare early albums on the Detroit based Tribe label, now made legendary by the compilations on Soul Jazz and P-Vine. Tenor player Wendell Harrison leads a group that includes Marcus Belgrave, Charles Eubanks, and Phil Ranelin, and which features occasional poetry by the "Black Messengers". The groove is laidback and spacey, with some nice electric piano, and good mellow solos that have a nice soulful vibe to them. Other parts of the album are a little bit more out, and have a sharp edge to them. Tracks include "Mary Had An Abortion", "Vol II Angry Young Man" (Parts 1 & 2), "Consciousness", and "Rebirth". Wild cover, too!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Cisco Kid
Groove Merchant/P-Vine (Japan), 1974. New Copy
One of the best 70s albums by this funky organ player – quite different than his work for Blue Note, with a messier funkier edge that's very nice! Reuben Wilson's working with an all-hip lineup, with players who include Melvin Sparks on guitar, Garnett Brown on trombone, Bob Cranshaw on bass ... CD
