Prelude

LP (Item 22815) CTI, Early 70s — Condition: Used
Gatefold
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 5

A million-seller, but also a record that no home should be without – and easily one of THE greatest keyboard albums of the 70s! The album's the one that features Deodato's remake of "Also Sprach Zarathustra" into the funky "2001" – soaring with Fender Rhodes lines that set a new standard for the instrument, with a funky undercurrent that few would have expected for the tune. Other tracks are nice too – and include a great bossa-y version of "Baubles Bangles & Beads", plus "Spirit Of Summer", "September 13", and "Carly & Carole". (Cover has a small scratch on the front and light wear.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Baddest Turrentine
CTI, Early 70s. Very Good+ Gatefold
A 4-track "best of" from Stan's hit years at CTI! If you know the man's tone, you know that he found a perfect home at CTI – where arrangements by the likes of Bob James or Deodato provided Stanley with a perfect foil for his warm exploratory blowing. The set features Stan's great ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chicago Theme
CTI, 1975. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of Hubert Laws' funkiest records for CTI – recorded with a full group funky style that's plenty darn great, and a lot harder-hitting than some of Hubert's more laidback sessions for the label! Arrangements are by Bob James and Laws – working here with a large batch of players who ... LP, Vinyl record album

You, Baby
CTI/A&M, 1968. Very Good+ Gatefold
Nat Adderley demonstrates that he can be as funky as brother Cannonball in this nice set of short groovers recorded for CTI from the late 60s! The record is one of Nat's few funky ones, and he's got some nice backing by Joe Zawinul, Grady Tate, Ron Carter, and Jerome Richardson. Cuts have the ... LP, Vinyl record album

One On One
CTI, 1979. Near Mint- Gatefold
A mellow mainstream fusion classic from the 70s – one that paired the gentle guitar of Earl Klugh with the sweet keyboards of Bob James – in a set that's filled with plenty of warm and laidback touches! The mode here takes off some of the darker edges from James' earlier sound, and ... LP, Vinyl record album

CTI, 1976. Very Good+ Gatefold
Sweet CTI grooving from George Benson – one of his hardest-hitting albums of the time! In a way, the record returns George to his early years at CTI – particularly the album Beyond The Blue Horizon – as the set's got a stripped down smaller group, working in a tight blend of ...

Penny Arcade
CTI, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold
Killer CTI work from Joe Farrell – with grooves so sharp you could cut your trousers on them! Farrell's angular reed style is in perfect form here – grooving with a small group that includes Herbie Hancock on piano, Joe Beck on guitar, Steve Gadd on drums, and Don Alias on percussion ...

Black Widow
CTI, 1976. Very Good-
Funky 70s work from Lalo – with a bit of a disco twist, and plenty of the electric jazz funk elements that were showing up in his soundtracks at the time. Lalo's on keyboards, playing a cool host of electric ones that give the record a nice spacey sound over the top of the funky arrangements. ... LP, Vinyl record album

Giant Box
CTI, 1973. Very Good+ 2LP
One of the most ambitious albums on CTI – a very large project in which Don Sebesky seems to work with just about everyone else who recorded for the label! The Giant Box title is apt – as the record originally came packaged in a cardboard box – room enough to hold the 2 records ... LP, Vinyl record album

Nine Flags
Impulse, 1966. Very Good+ Gatefold
Very groovy work from Chico – still very Latin at the core, but with lots of light 60s touches on top, ala the work of Gary McFarland, or some of the other groove-conscious arrangers for Verve and Impulse! Players on the set include Art Farmer, Clark Terry, JJ Johnson, Seldon Powell, and Pat ... LP, Vinyl record album

It's Uptown
Columbia, 1967. Very Good+
George Benson's first LP for Columbia – a hard, heavy, soul jazz slammer that bears no resemblance to his overproduced work of the 70s! The album's a real cooker – recorded hot on the heels of Benson's classic work on Prestige with the Jack McDuff group, and sounding a lot like McDuff's ... LP, Vinyl record album

Music, You All
Capitol, Early 70s/1976. Very Good+
Excellent live set from the early 70's, featuring George Duke, Airto, Ernie Watts, and brother Nat. David Axelrod produced, and the LP's got that nice hard funky sound that he did so well during his stint with Cannonball. Includes the 12 minute groover "The Brakes", plus "Oh ...

Best Of Two Worlds
Columbia, 1976. Very Good+
A wonderful return ot the sounds of Brazil for Stan Getz – a 70s album that reunites him with Joao Gilberto, but in a style that's somewhat different than the pair's older Verve recordings! The sound here is looser, freer – more in that breezy Brazilian mode that evolved out of the ... LP, Vinyl record album
