Live At The Lighthouse

LP (Item 1980) Prestige, 1972 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 5

A real killer from Earland! The record swings incredibly hard, with a tight jazzy groove that sounds like his early work for Prestige from the first few albums. The band includes lesser known players like trumpeter Elmer Coles, alto player James Vass, and conga player Kenneth Nash – but they all groove very tightly, and provide a perfect foil for Earland's soaring solos. Includes a great version of "Moontrane", plus the groovers "Spinky", "Smiling", and "Black Gun". (Cover has light wear.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Perceptions
Mercury, Late 70s. Very Good+
Classic club jazz from Charles Earland – one of the best LPs from his late 70s, post-Hammond period – when he was really opening up and exploring the use of a variety of keyboards! The set was done in conjunction with Randy Muller – who arranged, produced, and wrote the tracks ... LP, Vinyl record album
Revelation
Mercury, 1977. Very Good
One of the fine fine albums of spacey keyboard funk that Charles cut for the Mercury label during the late 70s. Earland starts with a Herbie Hancock approach – and no surprise, he's got Paul Jackson and Harvey Mason in the group – but then he changes the groove to show off more of his ...

Leaving This Planet
Prestige, 1974. Very Good- 2LP Gatefold
One of the greatest albums ever from organist Charles Earland – a double-length set that's filled with spiritual, soaring grooves! The style here is a perfect blend of the rougher soul jazz of Earland's roots with some of the spacier styles of his later recordings – served up in a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Great Pyramid
Mercury, 1976. Very Good+
Strong work in Charles' post-Prestige mode – the style in which he turned his keyboard skills to other non-Hammond instruments, like Fender Rhodes, clavinet, and mini-moog. Tracks are a mix of smooth soulful numbers and more jazz funk oriented ones – and the whole thing's got a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Blow Arnett, Blow
Prestige, 1959. Good+
Blow Arnette does, at that – a killer tenor groove that's augmented here by some additional work from Eddie Lockjaw Davis! The pair really let loose on some of the tunes here – blowing in that older "battle" mode at points, but also laying back at times too – hitting a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Walk On By
Prestige, 1966. Very Good-
Wonderful stuff from Brother Jack McDuff – very hip, with a mixture of soul jazz and 60s grooving that's hard to beat! The album's also one of Jack's harder to find numbers on Prestige – and it features tenor work by Red Holloway and Harold Ousely, guitar by Pat Azzara, drums by Joe ... LP, Vinyl record album
