Magic

LP (Item 54417) Arista/GRP, 1981 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 5

A key bit of jazz funk from trumpeter Tom Browne – still grooving strong here, with a sublime mix of modern soul, funky jazz, and some of the 80s groove touches that showed up on the best GRP titles from the time! The album's got a smooth compressed groove – kind of post-Donald Byrd, with Tom taking solos over the top of most tracks, and occasional vocals , wither from a backing group, or an assortment of different lead singers. Players on the set include Bernard Wright, Dave Grusin, Bobby Broom, and Marcus Miller – and tracks include "I Know", "Midnight Interlude", "Let's Dance", "Night Wind", "Making Plans", "Thighs Hihg", and "Magic".

While My Lady Sleeps
RCA, 1957. Very Good
A rare "with orchestra" outing from pianist Phineas Newborn – one that has his gentle keys out front of larger backings by Dennis Farnon – all cast in the kind of dreamy mode you might expect from the title!

English Jazz
Bally, 1956. Very Good
Some of the earliest work as a leader from the swinging Johnny Keating – one of England's finest jazz arrangers of the 50s, working here in a looser style than on his classic Keating Sound albums from the 60s! The groove here is more small combo swinging – and Keating's working with a ... LP, Vinyl record album

Al Green Is Love
Hi Records, 1975. Very Good
Heavenly soul doesn't get any more heavenly than this! Al's at the height of his powers here, and even though there aren't as many hits on the record, it's still got plenty of nice moments, and the usual stone cold Hi Records soul groove that works beautifully with Green's warmly compressed vocals. ...

Love Talk
Roxbury, 1976. Very Good+
The second album by Jim Gilstrap – a singer who did an awful lot of studio work for other folks during the 70s, and who scored a minor hit with his own "Swing Your Daddy", which was on the first album. This set's a bit more far-reaching, with arrangements by Gene Page that are kind ... LP, Vinyl record album
