Larry Willis – Inner Crisis


One of the few funky albums ever cut as a leader by Larry Willis¬† a super-hip keyboard player who’s best known for his work with Jackie McLean and Hugh Masekela, but who sounds even better as a leader! This album’s a gem all the way through¬† with a free-thinking soulful sound that’s head and shoulders above the rest of the work on Groove Merchant at the time. Players include Harold Vick, Roland Prince, and Eddie Gomez and the overall groove is an incredible array of soulful rhythms, played by Larry on electric piano, in a mode that makes the record feel like a lost gem from Strata East or Black Jazz.
