Melody Maker

LP (Item 469421) Casablanca, 1976 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 32

Hats off to Hugh Masekela – one of the few artists who could record for the Casablanca label and never manage to lose his own sense of sound and spirit! The album's a surprisingly great one, filled with the kinds of subtle touches and earthy soul we've always loved in Hugh's music – certainly a bit more polished than before, given the date of the record, but still filled with some really personal, individual moments. The set begins with a beautiful long instrumental titled "Hi Life" – with Hugh blowing a long, lean solo over the top of a mellow groove – then it moves into a range of shorter numbers, both vocal and instrumental, including the funk track "Toe Jam", plus the cuts "Come On Home", "Melodi", "I'll Make You Feel Alright", "Melody Maker", and "Dance". (Cover has a cut corner, tape on the spine, and a small sticker.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
