Freedom Sound

4.90 5

Sublime early soul jazz from the Jazz Crusaders – a seminal set that really has the group taking off right away! The use of "freedom" in the title is well placed – as the set definitely shows the players stretching out a bit on their solos – hinting at the magic that would move even more forward during their Lighthouse recordings – while still hanging onto the great groove that took them from Texas to the top of the LA scene! Every player's got a key presence here – Wilton Felder on tenor, Wayne Henderson on trombone, Joe Sample on piano, and Stix Hooper on drums – and the set also features some guest rhythm work from Jimmy Bond on bass and Roy Gaines on guitar, both of whom bring a nice pulse to the set. Titles include "The Geek", "Freedom Sound", and "Coon".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

RCA (Japan), 1976. New Copy
A pretty great 70s album from Gil Evans – a set that's got some great use of electric instrumentation, and a mighty groove on the best cuts! The overall approach is different than the early modernist sound of Gil Evans, but still very striking – a 70s equivalent to Gil's famous 60s ... CD

Far Out (UK), 2014. New Copy
A very cool combo from contemporary Brazil – a trio who work with guitar, bass, and drums at the core – but open up plenty of space for extra work on vibes, tenor, soprano, trumpet, and trombone! The vibes are especially great – and feature on almost all the tracks here – ... CD
