Blue Martini

LP (Item 52332) AVA, Mid 60s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 5

An excellent record that features the sublime tenor sound of Plas Johnson – set to sad, sweeping arrangements by John Neel! There's a lot of strings in here – but Plas' deep rich tenor cuts through the whole thing majestically, with a soulful power that makes the album swoon and dip, delighting the ears at every turn. Titles include "Bury Me Blue", "Who Is Wendy", "Blue Martini", "Midnight Blues", and "What Would I Do".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Atlantic, 1967. Very Good+

Spring Rain
Black Jazz, 1971. Near Mint-
One of the few albums ever cut by reedman Rudolph Johnson – a hell of a saxophonist, and one with a great ability to combine the spiritual with the searing – a bit like Joe Farrell at his CTI best, but not as freewheeling – nicely focused, and a little bit funky in all the right ...
