Roy Ayers – Ubiquity

null

Roy Ayers’ leap to the Polydor label inaugurates his music’s evolution away from the more traditional jazz of his earlier Atlantic LPs toward the infectious, funk-inspired fusion that still divides critics and fans even decades after the fact. Although Ubiquity maintains one foot in Ayers’ hard bop origins, the record favors soulful grooves and sun-kissed textures that flirt openly and unapologetically with commercial tastes. Several cuts feature the male/female vocals that would become a hallmark of subsequent Ubiquity efforts, while mid-tempo instrumentals like “Pretty Brown Skin” and “The Painted Desert” feature evocatively cinematic arrangements and intriguing solos that unfurl like psychedelic freak flags. The crack supporting cast including bassist John Williams, keyboardist Harry Whitaker, and drummer Alphonso Mouzon proves equally effective on high-energy numbers like “Can You Dig It” and the Nat Adderley-penned “Hummin’ in the Sun,” which point the way to the mind-expanding funk Ayers would perfect across the sessions to follow. An outstanding record. (allmusic)

Funkadelic – Maggot Brain

null

Funkadelic was George Clinton’s chance to get serious. Unlike Parliament, Funkadelic exhibited topical lyrics and an almost heavy-metal edge, one that included screeching, distorted guitar and unsettling musical turns. This 1971 album, Funkadelic’s second release, catches the ensemble in its early prime. The Hendrix-inspired dramatics come courtesy of Eddie Hazel, while Bernie Worrell admirably handles the keyboard chores. Clinton’s humorous, sober lyrics address poverty, race relations, and drug use. Musically, the band covers lots of ground: Everything from smooth soul and heavy rock to abstract psychedelia and straight-on funky grooves has a place, and these jarring shifts are what make the album a revolutionary work.

Personnel: Eddie Hazel , Garry Shider, Tawl Ross (vocals, guitar); Bernie Worrell (vocals, keyboards); Clarence “Fuzzy” Haskins (vocals, drums); George Clinton , Grady Thomas, Raymond Davis, Calvin Simon (vocals); Billy “Bass” Nelson (bass instrument); Ramon Tiki Fulwood (drums).

Donald Byrd – Ethiopian Knights

null

At about the same time that Miles Davis’ crew was populating the jazz world with their revolutionary fusion-isms, trumpeter Donald Byrd had returned from a trip to Africa and undergone an artistic epiphany. His Afrocentric explorations resulted in a number of beautiful albums, including 1971′s Ethiopian Knights, which postdated his incomparable hard bop work with the likes of Sonny Rollins and Pepper Adams, and landed just before his renowned album Blackbyrd and later ventures into radio-friendly R&B.

Ethiopian Knights stretches into experimental Bitche Brew territory with rock and soul-jazz rhythms, electronic keyboards, elastic structures and a battery of African percussion. Byrd employs a stellar line-up of West Coast jazz funkateers for these sessions, including the Jazz Crusaders’ Joe Sample and Wilton Felder, and Bobby Hutcherson with members of his band. The vibe here is loose and organic, with full doses of driving funk. Ethiopian Knights fills in an important chapter in the Donald Byrd story and makes for funky good listening. (cduniverse)

Personnel: Donald Byrd (trumpet); Harold Land (tenor saxophone); Thurman Green (trombone); Bobby Hutcherson (vibraphone); William Henderson III (acoustic & electric pianos); Joe Sample (organ); Don Peake, Greg Poree, David T. Walker (guitar); Wilton Felder (electric bass); Edward Greene (drums); Bobbye Porter Hall (congas, tambourine).

Roy Ayers Ubiquity – He’s Coming

null

One of the rarest and greatest Roy Ayers albums of all time – the sly, funky and spiritual masterpiece He’s Coming from 1971 – really the beginning of the funk years from Roy Ayers Ubiquity! This one’s a totally solid mix of soulful jazz, jazzy soul and righteous funk – and it’s straight up wonderful all the way through – with a groove that’s hugely influential to say the least! Includes the amazing track “We Live In Brooklyn Baby”, which has a slow sample bassline in the intro that’s just incredible – plus groovy cuts like the spiritual funk classic Jesus Christ Superstar “He’s a Superstar”, “He’s Coming”, and “Sweet Tears”. The lineup includes Sonny Fortune on soprano sax and flute and Billy Cobham drums and percussion, and the record’s co-arranged by Harry Whitaker, who’s also on keys and vocals – with other tracks include “He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother”, “Ain’t Got Time”, “I Don’t Know How To Love Him”, “Sweet Butterfly Of Love” and “Fire Weaver”. Amazing stuff, really a beautiful encapsulation of Roy Ayers in peak form! (dustygroove.com)

George Benson – Beyond The Blue Horizon

null

George Benson has worn many hats throughout his career, from jazz-pop vocal star to soulful six-stringer, but his guitar god persona is probably exhibited best by Beyond The Blue Horizon (CTI, 1971). This album arrived five full years before Benson’s popularity would explode with Breezin’ (Warner Bros., 1976), and it presents this powerful instrumental presence in a no-nonsense, small group setting. Beyond The Blue Horizon is beyond what most instrumentalists ever achieve, and one of the crowning jewels in Benson’s discography.

Personnel: George Benson (guitar); Clarence Palmer (organ); Ron Carter (bass); Jack DeJohnette (drums); Michael Cameron, Albert Nicholson (percussion).

Pharoah Sanders – Black Unity

null

Hannibal Marvin Peterson’s trumpet and Pharoah’s tenor screech out of the melody in accord–their amity is in the process and the product.. Characteristic of Pharoah’s other work at this time, “Black Unity” rides an often static bass figure. In this way, while the improvisations may evoke the reflective or the frantic, an assertive central theme pervades in the lower register: determination (Does “A Love Supreme” rear its head towards the end?). The harmony is sparse, yet a profound sense of movement permeates throughout. Add exciting cymbal work, care of Billy Hart or Norman Connors, and the mix is complete. Black Unity is a true highlight among Sanders’ Avant-Garde articulations of Black cultural visions.

George Benson – White Rabbit

null

Recorded in three days in 1971, this CTI recording has been lauded as one of George Benson’s best releases. A stellar cast of musicians–all in their best form–are featured on WHITE RABBIT, including Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, Billy Cobham, Hubert Laws, and Benson’s then-young protege, Earl Klugh. Arranger Don Sebesky creates some of the most creative twists on the popular songs of the time such as “White Rabbit” and “California Dreamin,” as well as on Hector Villa-Lobos’ “Little Train.” The recording has a Spanish flavor throughout, as well as a mysterious, psychedelic tinge reminiscent of the time it was recorded. The players put forth the kind of energy that is rarely found in recordings. Benson’s guitar playing here is the stuff that has made him famous.

01. White Rabbit
02. Theme From ‘Summer Of ’42′

The Crusaders Albums!

In 1961, four fellows from Houston transplanted themselves to Los Angeles and added more distinctly bluesy elements to the soul jazz style with an ear-grabbing album called The Freedom Sound on the Pacific Jazz label. The band, which had been known in turn as the Swingsters, the Modern Jazz Sextet, and the Nighthawks, was now named the Jazz Crusaders. Its four co-leaders were trombonist Wayne Henderson, tenor saxophonist (and occasional bassist) Wilton Felder, pianist Joe Sample, and drummer Nesbert “Stix” Hooper.

The Jazz Crusaders sound caught on big time, and their subsequent Pacific Jazz albums rewarded them with a good deal of exposure. The band performed regularly and got plenty of airplay. One of its signature pieces, the rollickingly fast “Young Rabbits,” was even used as the musical background for a Ford Mustang TV commercial.

But as times changed, so did the Jazz Crusaders. In the late Sixties, they placed such popular numbers as the Beatles’ “Eleanor Rigby” and “Get Back” in their repertoire, and firm backbeats began to bolster many a selection. By 1971, they decided that the word “jazz” kept them from attracting a wider listener base, and so they emerged anew with The Crusaders, Vol. 1 (Chisa), an album that openly infused jazz with pop, soul, and r&b elements.

If the Jazz Crusaders had achieved some degree of popularity, it was nothing like the crossover success that greeted the Crusaders. Such albums as Scratch, Southern Comfort, Chain Reaction, Those Southern Knights, Free as the Wind, Images, Street Life, and Royal Jam (recorded variously for the Chisa, ABC Blue Thumb, and MCA labels) sold well and brought in a deluge of new fans. Street Life’s title track provided the Crusaders with a Billboard top forty hit, reaching no. 36 in 1979.

The Crusaders’ popularity started to fade in the early Eighties, prompted by Henderson’s departure. Hooper then left as well, and by the early Nineties Sample and Felder had disbanded the group. A few years later, Henderson and Felder began performing together, first as the New Crusaders and, more recently, as the Jazz Crusaders.

Weather Report Albums!

Weather Report was one of the earliest and most influential Jazz-Rock groups. Keyboardist Joe Zawinul and saxophone player Wayne Shorter formed the group in 1971. Both had spent in time in Miles Davis’ group – Shorter played with the legendary 1960s quintet (along with Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter, and Tony Williams). Zawinul joined later, during the early days when Davis pioneered the fusion movement. Zawinul was one of the early masters of the synthesizer. Before joining Davis’ group, he played electric piano in the Cannonball Adderly quintet. The sound so impressed Davis, that he hired Zawinul and made future keyboard players play the instrument.

In addition to forming the group and composing many of their songs, they were the two constant members in the group, as many musicians passed through. One of the most famous to pass through was bassists Jaco Pastorius. Pastorius was a pioneer on the electric bass. He took it from a rhythm instrument into an important solo instrument by playing with speed and grace, often dazzling audiences with his virtuosity during unaccompanied solos . He created a slippery effect by using a fretless bass. He has influenced countless bass players to this day. He joined Weather Report in 1976 and left in 1982, forming his own group Word of Mouth. Aside from a tremendous ego, he was alcoholic and a heroine addict. He died tragically in 1987 after he instigated a fight at a bar and suffered head injuries.

Unlike many groups, Weather Report focused on a group sound, creating complex arrangements in addition to their improvised solos, which made it more difficult to distinguish between the soloist and accompanists, because they were virtuosos on their instruments, providing awe-inspiring solos, as well as accompaniment work.

The group originally included Miroslav Vitous, percussionist Airto Moreira and drummer Alphonze Mauzon. Their self-titled debut album, as well as their follow-up I sing the Body Electric, are jazz-rock classics. However, their greatest line-up was in the mid 70s when Pastorious and drummer Peter Erskine joined. This line-up put out the fine records Black Market, Mr. Gone, and Heavy Weather, which was their biggest selling album and included their most famous hit Birdland). After Erskine and Pastorious left, they were replaced by Omar Hakim and Victor Bailey, respectively. While they were fine musicians, they lacked the flamboyance and imagination as their predecessors, Their records afterward, were polished, yet detached and lacked the fire of the early works. Shorter and Zawinul disbanded the group in 1987. In 1996, rumors circulated that the Shorter and Zawinul would reunite the group, but it never happened.

While many fusion groups only lasted a few years, Weather Report lasted over fifteen.

Archie Shepp – For Losers

null

This LP came out in 1970 or 1971 as an odd mix of music / sessions. The gems are tracks 3 and 4 : Archie Shepp accompanying a Billie Holiday impression (by Chinalin Sharpe, the wife of the alto player on the track)and cutting loose with a very striking solo on “I Got It Bad (and That Ain’t Good)”; and Archie Shepp’s soulful, pleading yet defiant dirge reading of Cal Massey’s “What Would It Be Without You”. Stunning, compelling tenor work. The long “Un Croque Monsieur” has its moments as well, although its inserted poem may sound a bit dated today (late 60′s avant garde). Cedar Walton, Wilbur Ware and Cecil Payne (baritone sax and flute) provide solid support throughout on these three tracks. Tracks 1 and 2 are from different recording sessions, with larger ensembles (including electric bass) and a pseudo commercial feel. Track 1 is a Leon Thomas vocal.

Ann Peebles Albums!

Ann Peebles (born April 27, 1947) is a singer and songwriter, best known for her Memphis soul albums of the 1970s on the Hi Records label. Two of her better known songs are “I’m Gonna Tear Your Playhouse Down” and “I Can’t Stand the Rain”, popularised by cover versions by Paul Young and Eruption  respectively. “I Can’t Stand the Rain” was written by her husband, Don Bryant, former radio broadcaster, Bernard “Bernie” Miller, and Peebles.

Peebles was discovered as a talent by Gene “Bowlegs” Miller of Hi Records during a 1968 trip to sit in singing with him at a Memphis, Tennessee, nightclub. A popular local bandleader, Miller was known for also helping other musicians, such as members of the Hi Rhythm Section, get their start in the Memphis music industry. Peebles soon began penning and singing hits for the label, co-writing with label staff songwriter Don Bryant, whom she later married in 1974. Peebles released a number of commercially successful and critically well received albums produced by Willie Mitchell on Hi Records throughout the 1970s, until the rise of disco music in the late 1970s took her music  out of the limelight. Hi Records was sold in 1977, but Peebles reunited with Willie Mitchell in 1989 to produce her comeback album, Call Me.

In 2006 she released the album Brand New Classics, which consisted of re-recordings of some of her songs in an acoustic style.

Reuben Wilson – Set Us Free

null

Reuben Wilson joins a flurry of recent reissues catering to DJs, crate-diggers, and rare groove enthusiasts. But while most of Wilson’s catalogue is straightforward, funk-touched soul-jazz on the order of Jimmy Smith and Jack Mcduff, SET US FREE incorporates exotic percussion, sitar, and a full choir. Those seeking lean grooves may be surprised by the opulent sonic onslaught here, but fans of early `70s jazz fusion experiments (especially those that incorporate world music) will want to give this a spin.

Walter Bishop Jr. – Coral Keys

null

Walter Bishop, Jr. was a valuable utility pianist on many a modern jazz session during the bebop era, remaining an active performer until his death at the age of 70 in early 1998. The son of composer Walter Bishop Sr., he grew up in Harlem’s Sugar Hill area, and as a teen counted among his friends Sonny Rollins, Kenny Drew and Art Taylor; acknowledging Art Tatum, Bud Powell and Nat “King” Cole as important influences, Bishop first attracted notice on the Manhattan club circuit around 1947, going on to play and record in bands led by Art Blakey, Charlie Parker, Oscar Pettiford, Kai Winding, and Miles Davis in the years to follow. In 1960, he played in trombonist Curtis Fuller’s group before forming his own trio the next year with bassist Jimmy Garrison and drummer G.T. Hogan. In 1964, Bishop toured with vibist Terry Gibbs, and in the late ’60s, he studied at Juilliard with composer/pianist Hall Overton. He moved to Los Angeles in 1969, where he continued to study and work as a freelancer with local groups, including Supersax and trumpeter Blue Mitchell’s band. From 1972-5, Bishop taught jazz theory, both privately and in local colleges. He returned to New York in ’75. The next year, Bishop authored an insightful if neglected book on jazz theory, A Study in Fourths, in which he proffered a technique of chromatic improvisation based on the use of cycles of fourths and fifths. Bishop played in trumpeter Clark Terry’s big and small bands in 1977. He continued to lead his own groups, and in the early ’80s began teaching at the University of Hartford; in 1983, he played a solo concert at Carnegie Hall. In the mid-’90s, Bishop appeared to great acclaim at the Charlie Parker Jazz Festival on New York City’s Lower East Side.

Harold Land – A New Shade of Blue

null

Harold Land is an underrated tenor saxophonist whose tone has hardened with time and whose improvising style after the 1960s became influenced by (but not a copy of) John Coltrane. He grew up in San Diego and started playing tenor when he was 16. After working locally and making his recording debut for Savoy (1949), Land had his first high-profile gig in 1954 when he joined the Clifford Brown/Max Roach Quintet. Land performed and recorded with the group until late 1955 when due to family problems he had to return home to Los Angeles (where he has been based ever since). He played with Curtis Counce’s band (1956-1958), recorded a pair of memorable albums for Contemporary (1958-1959), led his own groups in the 1960s, and co-led groups with Bobby Hutcherson (1967-1971) and Blue Mitchell (1975-1978). Harold Land continued freelancing around Los Angeles up until his death in 2001. Land recorded as a leader (in addition to Savoy and Contemporary) for such labels as Jazzland, Blue Note, Imperial, Atlantic, Cadet, Mainstream, Concord, Muse, and Postcards. His son, Harold Land, Jr., occasionally played piano with his groups.

Miles Davis Albums!

Miles Dewey Davis III (May 26, 1926 – September 28, 1991) was an American jazz trumpeter, bandleader, and composer.

Widely considered one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century, Miles Davis was, with his musical groups, at the forefront of several major developments in jazz music, including bebop, cool jazz, hard bop, modal jazz, and jazz fusion. Many well-known musicians rose to prominence as members of Davis’ ensembles, including saxophonists Gerry Mulligan, John Coltrane, Cannonball Adderley, George Coleman, Wayne Shorter, and Kenny Garrett; trombonist J. J. Johnson; pianists Bill Evans, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, and Keith Jarrett; guitarists John McLaughlin, John Scofield and Mike Stern; bassists Paul Chambers, Ron Carter, and Dave Holland; and drummers Tony Williams, Billy Cobham and Jack DeJohnette.

On October 7, 2008, his album Kind of Blue, released in 1959, received its fourth platinum certification from the RIAA, signifying sales of 4 million copies. Miles Davis was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006. Davis was noted as “one of the key figures in the history of jazz”.

On November 5, 2009, Rep. John Conyers of Michigan sponsored a measure in the US House of Representatives to recognize and commemorate the album Kind of Blue on its 50th anniversary. The measure also affirms jazz as a national treasure and “encourages the United States government to preserve and advance the art form of jazz music.” It passed, unanimously, with a vote of 409–0 on December 15, 2009.

Pharoah Sanders – Thembi

null

Brimming with innovation, positivity and a pervasive sense of wonder, THEMBI may become your favorite Sanders album. These tracks represent a landmark confluence of many elements: Avant-Garde chaos, static harmony and a cultural revaluation of West African instrumentation, to name a few. Omnipresent, of course, is the unmistakable tempest of Pharoah blowing his tenor out to sea. It’s 1971, and this is a simultaneous celebration of the past and future of jazz set to the jingling bells of a Sunday afternoon be-in. THEMBI floats to a start with the ethereal Fender Rhodes musing of “Astral Traveling,” courtesy of Lonnie Liston Smith. Though Sanders has described the melody as an impromptu thread for the changes, his plaintive long tones are as charged as ever with wisdom. In the lower register is Cecil McBee, laying down the groove with entrancing vamp lines. The title track seems like an afterthought to the classic “The Creator,” replacing the traditional “head, solo, head” structure with something more closely resembling “mantra, solo, mantra.” Like much of Sanders’ other work, these recordings are simple in form, yet vast in content.

Nino Nardini & Roger Roger – Jungle Obsession

null

Released in 1971, under the blanket of library music anonymity, “Jungle Obsession” is one of those rare and precious records whose extraordinary personality is instantly recognised by the ear of the listener. The album sits somewhere between solar exoticism and primitive psychedelics and is entirely focused on the beauty and mysteries of Rudyard Kipling’s Jungle Book in its hunt for a fascinating artistic El Dorado. Leading this musical expedition, we find two of library musics greats, the amazing Roger Roger (1911-1995) and Nino Nardini (1912-1994). These outstanding conductors took the role of mad scientists at the legendary Ganaro Studio for the recording of this album. Going beyond music styles from the era, they blend genres with obvious success. “Jungle Obsession” vibrates to an audacious and minimal orchestration that highlights percussion, whilst a forest of luxurious chords wreathe through rough guitar assaults and electronic soundscapes. Intoxicated by these subtle melodies, feline rhythms and flagrant poetry, all that is left for us to do is to lose ourselves in the heart of this savage bewitching branch exotica.

The Beginning Of The End – Funky Nassau

null

A monster bit of funk that’s unlike anything else we can think of! Beginning Of The End hailed from The Bahamas, but don’t hold that against them — because instead of being a Caribbean cliche, they took the best part of the island rhythms, and used them to forge an incredible approach to funk! They’ve got a choppy sound that’s the result of some incredibly dexterous guitar, bass, and drums — and which you’ll recognize instantly from their one-time hit “Funky Nassau”, a killer funk track that never gets old, no matter how many bands cover it over the years! That gem kicks off the album, which then rolls into the monster funky “part 2″, which is even better! Other titles are equally wonderful — and include “Come Down”, “Surrey Ride”, “Monkey Tamarind”, and “In The Deep”. Essential — and one that you’ll be spinning for years!

Gil Scott-Heron Albums!

Gil Scott-Heron (born April 1, 1949) is an American  poet, musician, and author  known primarily for his late 1970s and early 1980s work as a spoken word soul performer and his collaborative work with musician Brian Jackson. His collaborative efforts with Jackson featured a musical fusion of jazz, blues and soul music, as well as lyrical content concerning social and political issues of the time, delivered in both rapping and melismatic vocal styles by Scott-Heron. The music of these albums, most notably Pieces of a Man and Winter in America in the early 1970s, influenced and helped engender later African-American music genres such as hip hop and neo soul. Scott-Heron’s recording work is often associated with black militant activism and has received much critical acclaim for one of his most well-known compositions “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised”. On his influence, Allmusic  wrote “Scott-Heron’s unique proto-rap style influenced a generation of hip-hop artists”.
