Friday Night Funk For Saturday Night Brothers

LP (Item 5634) Prestige, 1972 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 5

A sweet sweet change for Rusty Bryant – as electric piano moves in on the usual Hammond heard on most of his funky sessions – with a resulting groove that's outta site! The change in keys makes for more of a soundtrack funk feel than a rough-edged one – not smooth at all, but more in a 70s class sort of area – partly CTI, but still with lots more of that loose energy that makes the Prestige jazz funk sessions so great. Unlike later dates of this nature, the group's still small, and very unified – with Khalid Kenneth Moss on electric piano and a bit of organ, Harold Young On guitar, Fred Masey on drums, and Norman Jones on percussion. Titles include "Friday Night Funk For Saturday Night Brothers", "Have You Seen Her", "Blues for a Brother", and "Mercy Mercy Mercy". (Cover has light wear.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

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

Flying Dutchman, 1972. Very Good Gatefold
One of the few albums ever cut by saxophonist Harold Alexander – and a nice little live date that has the leader really stretching out on soprano sax and flute!
