Beautiful spiritual soul jazz! Longineu Parsons is an obscure American trumpeter who's cut some supremely fantastic music over the past 20 years – most of it nearly impossible to find, until the release of this great compilation. Parsons has a style that can be likened to some of the Cannonball/
Nat Adderley soul jazz collaborations of the early 70s, some of the later Lee Morgan albums on Blue Note, and mixed with freer sounds that he's absorbed from playing with folks like David Murray, Sun Ra, and Billy Harper
. This set brings together lods of great tracks from Parson's self-titled 1980 album, plus the album Work Song, and another cassette-only release. If you're a bit worried about the sound, don't be – as the material feels like it was pulled from the vaults of some lost 70s label, instead of from a more recent imprint. Titles include "Funkin Around", "Spaced", "The Gathering", "Hannibal's March", "Passing Moment", "Search For The New Land", and "Take The High Road". Also features bonus remixes by Amalgamation Of Sounds and P'Taah!
