Moe KoffmanMoe's Curried Soul ... LP
Kama Sutra, Early 70s. Very Good ... $9.99
A trippy trippy bit of funk from Moe Koffman – recorded after his big "Swinging Shepherd" instrumental hit of the early 60s – but a few years before his more experimental sessions of the 70s! The style here is mod hippie 60s flute jazz – with Moe blowing in a soul jazz mode that's clearly influenced by the sound of Herbie Mann's hits, but backed by a set of arrangements that have a much groovier feel – lots of hard bass, heavy drums, and fuzzed-up guitars – plus a nice electric undercurrent that gives the set a strong Head Jazz sort of feel. Extremely groovy throughout – and featuring the tracks "Curried Soul", "Sunshine Superman", "Cantelope Island", "Anteaters Song", and "Country Song". LP, Vinyl record album
(Promo. Cover has a tracklist sticker on front, with a center split on the top seam and spine.)

✨✧ Moe Koffman QuintetShepherd Swings Again ... CD
Jubilee/Warner (Japan), 1958. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Flute man Moe Koffman was one of the strongest jazz talents on his instrument in the late 50s – an artist whose work on records like this may well have paved the ground for the success of Herbie Mann and others to come! The title's a play on Moe's earlier work on the "Swingin Shepherd" tune – a surprise instrumental hit, with a very sprightly groove – but the approach here is much more jazz overall, and really lets Koffman show off his chops – including a few points at which he blows alto sax too! The arrangements are fresh, and slightly modern – and the group features Ed Bickert on guitar, Hugh Currie on bass, and Ron Rully on drums – on titles that include "Marty's Mourge", "What Can You Do", "Doxy", "Sure It Is", "Alone Together", and "Cloud Nine".
