A set of tracks from Galt MacDermot
's musical Dude – co-written with
Hair lyricist Jerome Ragni, and featuring vocals by Salome Bey
(of Andy & The Bey
Sisters fame!) Galt
did the music, and the group includes him, Bernard Purdie, Cornell Dupree, and has backup vocals by Cissy Houston and Joshie Armstead – all working nicely together in a style that's got some righteous touches that give the album a nice sort of Atlantic 70s soul sound. Salome
sings deep and soulfully – in a mode that recalls her work with
Sisters group, but in a mode that's more soul-based – and tracks include "Boo Boo", "Happy Song", "Jazz Bridge", "At Home", "No One", and "A Garden For Two".
