LP (Item 447336) Nemperor, 1974 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 5

Despite the innocence of the title and cover image, the grooves here are pretty darn mature – really hard-jamming fusion tracks served up with Jerry Goodman on electric guitars and violin, and Jan Hammer on a wealth of groovy keyboards! Hammer's still a bit restrained at this point – not nearly a schlocky as in later years, and with a good ear for unusual sounds from the Moog, Oberheim, and electric piano – all used nicely here with plenty of cool effects. Goodman himself sings a bit on the record, but not much – and the whole thing has a fusion feel that's very much like other releases at the time on the Nemperor label. Titles include "Steppings Tones", "Night", "Full Moon Boogie", "No Fear", "I Remember Me", "Country & Eastern Music", "Topeka", and "Earth (Still Our Only Home)". (Side 2 has a mark that clicks a bit on track one. Cover has some wear, a cutout notch, some light stains, and a bit of sticker residue.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Blue Note, Late 60s. Very Good Gatefold
A brilliant pairing of the Three Sounds trio with the larger arrangements of reedman Oliver Nelson – easily one of the most soulful bandleaders of the 60s, and a talent who really helps open up the trio's groove!

Prestige, 1973. Very Good+
Amazing stuff from Ivan Boogaloo Joe Jones!
