✨✧ Clarence Wheeler & the EnforcersLove I've Been Looking For ... LP
Atlantic, 1971. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The second fantastic album from Chicago saxophonist Clarence Wheeler and his hard-hitting Enforcers combo – a group who were one of the brightest lights in soul jazz at the start of the 70s, really helping to keep the genre fresh and exciting! The groove here is in the tenor/organ mode first popularized in the 60s – but the overall sound is a lot more expansive, and filled with unusual time changes, complicated rhythms, and inventive solo work that go way beyond more familiar albums of this nature on Prestige or Blue Note! Sonny Burke is the organist in the group, and he's got a touch on the keys that's a lot like Jack McDuff at his best – filled with great sounds and unusual notes that always keep things interesting. Added to that is trumpet from Sonny Covington, guitar from Eric Gale, and tenor from Wheeler – all vamping and grooving in an amazing way! There's a bit of the Charles Earland sound from the same period going on here – and like Earland, the group have a great way of keeping things slightly funky, even when mellow! Titles include a great version of "Broasted or Fried", Charles Earland's "Mighty Burner", Jack McDuff's "The Heebie Jeebie Dance", plus "We've Only Just Begun" and "The Love I've Been Looking For". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Clarence Wheeler & The EnforcersRight On/Doin' What I Wanna ... 7-inch
Atlantic/Dynamite Cuts (UK), 1970. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... Out Of Stock
Two fantastic funky cuts from this legendary Chicago group – one who could effortlessly blend soul jazz and harder grooves, in a way that's unlike anyone else we can think of! "Right On" has heavy drums and some super-sharp lines on Hammond – peppered with a bit of vocals, but soon giving way to a massive tenor solo from Clarence Wheeler! "Doin What I Wanna" has a fast-vamping organ like that's like a quick take on "It's Your Thing" – but groovier, jazzier, and with tremendous tenor and trumpet! 7-inch, Vinyl record
