One of the best albums by this groovy piano/percussion combo who played a nice mix of bossa and soul jazz. The set has 2 nice originals with a deep groove – "Watusi Warrior" and "Sheryl Likes Bananas" – plus groovy covers of "Summertime", "Taste Of Honey", and "More". Nice stuff, and very cool mix of piano, bass, drums, and congas. LP, Vinyl record album
Bully! ... LP Atlantic, 1966. Used ...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
The only Atlantic Records session from the QuartetteTresBien – and a set that's got a bit more punch than some of their records for Decca! The groove here still features the compelling percussion/piano lineup of the combo – with Percy James on bongo and conga, Albert St James on drums, and Jeter Thompson on piano – and the playing has a strong focus on the piano work by Thompson, with a good mix of soul jazz and lyrical styles! Includes the original track "Bully", plus versions of "Work Song", "Caravan", "Three O'Clock In The Morning", and "I Never Knew". LP, Vinyl record album
More groovy soul jazz piano, plus percussion, by the group who virtually invented the genre. As with their other albums on Decca, this one contains a few groovy covers of pop material – like "Amor", "Feelin' Good", and "Moon River" – plus some nice originals which use percussion and piano to very interesting effect. This album's originals include "Harambee" and "Lucky 28", both of which were written by Percy James, who plays congas and bongos on the album. LP, Vinyl record album
