An amazing little record – not just for the music itself, which is inherently great – but also for its straight jazz presentation of players you might know in more of a reggae-based setting! The album's a smoking set of hardbop numbers, played with plenty of soul – by a combo ... (Jazz, Reggae)read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Amazing original pressing! Cover has some light wear.)
