An unusual group – but a nice little record! New York City Band are less of a group on their own, than a combo pulled together for this album – an ersatz soundtrack to the film Sunnyside, a disco-era production starring John Travolta's younger brother Joey! The group's mostly directed and organized by keyboardist Harold Wheeler, who gives their work a smooth groove that's pretty nice on the best cuts – a bit disco-fied, but also with some jazz funk touches – and still pretty strong thanks to vocal contributions from Luther Vandross, Lani Groves, and others. Titles include "Loving You", "Got To Have Your Body", "Ride That Wave", "New York City Band", "Sometimes", and "Sunnyside". (Cover has a promo stamp & some wear.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Atlantic, 1972. Near Mint-

Red Black & Green
Polydor, 1973. Near Mint-
Seminal early funk work from Roy Ayers! The record catches him at that perfect point when he was turning from a straight jazz player into a sinister force in 70s funk – and the group on the session includes super-hip soul jazz giants like Charles Tolliver, Sonny Fortune, and Harry Whitaker, ...
