Wade In The Water

LP (Item 21698) Cadet, Mid 60s — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.70 5

Classic pop soul jazz from the inventor of the genre! Ramsey's funky piano is backed by some soulful arrangements handled by Richard Evans – in a really tight style that includes great percussion, electric bass, and an all-out kicking style that makes even the mellowest tunes groove! Evans really adds a lot to the set – expanding the core groove of the Lewis trio with a proud and righteous Chicago approach – really bringing some "soul" to the soul jazz sound of the group, with incredible results! Titles include "Money In the Pocket", "Wade In the Water", "Ain't That Peculiar", "Up Tight", and "Hold It Right There". (Orange label pressing. Cover has some wear, center splits on the top and bottom seams, and an imprint on the back in one corner.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Cadet, 1969. Very Good+
