Short Trip To Space

Gatefold

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 5

A funky fusion classic from John Tropea – the great guitarist who cut a wealth of studio work for other players, and a rare few albums under his own name! This set's got a tight, yet soulful finish – very much in the spirit of the best work on CTI or Kudu during the mid 70s – with Tropea's guitar out front in the arrangements on most tracks, backed by keyboards, horns, and some nice use of synth, which creates some especially great spacey touches. Players include Mike Mainieri, Don Grolnick, Will Lee, and Steve Gadd – and titles include "The Funk You See Is The Funk You Do", "Can't Hide Love", "You Can't Have It All", "Southside", "Short Trip To Space", "Love's Final Moment", and "Twist Of The Wrist".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Vee Jay, Early 60s. Very Good
Very nice, very tight little bossa nova set by Eddie Harris from his early days at Vee Jay! The groove is very open, and Eddie's still at the stage where he can really cut the stuff. His solos ring out hard and cold above some great Lalo Schifrin arrangements, and Lalo also plays piano on the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Infant Eyes
Muse, 1979. Very Good-
An overlooked Hammond slammer from Charles Earland – cut at a time when he was working on more electric keyboards for other labels. The set's a killer all the way through – very much in the best early 70s Prestige Records mode – with long tracks that really jam, and a lineup that ... LP, Vinyl record album
