Sound Of A Drum

LP (Item 8837) Marlin, 1976 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 11

One of the better albums of funky soul by percussionist Ralph MacDonald – probably because the groove's a bit more jazzy and tight, with less of the silliness of his other albums. The tracks feature a range of great jazz funk players – including Bob James, Eric Gale, Richard Tee, and Chuck Rainey – but the main strength is MacDonald's funky work on conga. The album features the classic "Jam On The Groove", a killer break cut from the old days, as well as a nice version of "Mister Magic", plus "Calypso Breakdown", "Sound Of A Drum", and "Where Is The Love". (Cover has a cutout notch, some wear, and a name in marker on front.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Blue Note, 1962. Very Good
Seminal stuff – and one of Dexter Gordon's excellent Blue Note sessions with pianist Sonny Clark! Sonny's in fine fine form for the record, and in our opinion, he seems to be the most relaxed and inventive when accompanying Dexter Gordon – even over other Blue Note horn players, and ...
