LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 5

Sweet keyboard soul from Deodato – a set that steps off nicely from the strengths of his big hits on CTI, hitting a similarly flowing groove that's really great! The instrumentation here is a bit more expanded than before, but never in a way that buries the keyboards – and Deodato's right out front on a range of electric keys that get some great support from John Tropea's finely-honed work on guitar! Titles include "Havana Strut", "Whirlwinds", "West 42nd Street", and a nice cover of Steely Dan's "Do It Again". And heck, even the album's version of Glen Miller's "Moonlight Serenade" manages to come off like a funk tune! (Side 1 has a mark that clicks a bit on track one. Cover has a bit of light wear.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Atlantic, 1956. Very Good-
Beautiful work from Jimmy Giuffre – and a key album in the development of his spare sound of the late 50s! The record features Jimmy on clarinet – as you'd guess by the title – but this is no hokey set of Benny Goodman or Buddy DeFranco-type tunes. Instead, Giuffre's using the ... LP, Vinyl record album

World Pacific, Mid 60s. Very Good+
Billy Larkin plays soul jazz instrumentals with The Delgates, and the group's joined by singer Ralph Black on a number of cuts. Black's style is ok, but the group's strong point is still their funky jazzy material. This LP sports a few originals – like "Way Cross Town" and "He ... LP, Vinyl record album
