Now That I've Got Your Attention

LP (Item 7572) Headfirst, 1981 — Condition: Used
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 5

A wicked album of dancefloor jazz funk – featuring the vocals and keyboards of Lesette Wilson, an excellent player who's worked on dozens of albums as a studio musician, but only ever got to cut a few sides under her own name! The album's got a warm soulful finish – right up there with the best funky fusion of the late 70s and early 80s, and made even better by Lesette's smooth yet honest vocal approach. The standout cut on here is "Caveman Boogie" – a monster groover with some funked-up Patrice Rushen-styled keyboards – but the whole album's equally great, a treasure trove of lost tunes that makes the album essential in any groove collection! The track list also includes a great cover of Herbie Hancock's "Ai No Corrida", plus the tracks "Saturday Night Groovin", "Elaine", and "Traveling Song". (Cover has a small sticker in one corner.)  © 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

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!
