What a remarkably fantastic debut album, its got it all going on Soul, Jazz, Folk, Gospel,Blues, some spiritual world vibes…
Unbelievable really that it took Clint Eastwood’s Play Misty For Me a few years later for this album to get noticed.
Enjoying the Qobuz 24/192 stream
1970 Creed Taylor Quincy Jones Big Band album kicking out some fine grooves aided and abetted by,
Milt Jackson vibes, Don Elliott marimba, Hubert Laws flute, Jerome Richardson soprano sax, Freddie Hubbard trumpet, Al Grey trombone, Eric Gale guitar. Strong keyboard playing from Herbie Hancock and Bob James, some guitar and a bit of bonkers scatting and whistling from Toots Thielman and a touch of soul singing with Valerie Simpson
It’s A Beautiful Day | 1969
Their wonderful eponymous debut that was a big part of those heady late 60s psychedlic days in the West Coast Bay area style. It was a bit of a crossover from those flower power days into pschedelic rock and an album I do like to get out once or twice a year. Sounding wonderful on the headphone system with the Grado 1000’s on, should have tried this combo with the album before!
Not sure if you’re still a downloader. There is an album set on Qobuz for £8.99 that is great value. It is a package called The Bobby Whitlock Story - containing his first two solo albums from 1972 Bobby Whitlock and Raw Velvet.
Waiting for Chinese takeaway.
Who’d have thought they’d be so busy on Mothers Day🤷🏻♂️
