Moe Koffman ‎– Moe's Curried Soul 1970 (Kama Sutra)


Label : Kama Sutra

Value :

Moe Koffman was a Canadian jazz musician who played not only the flute but also rocked the sax and clarinet (just like our very own Trampy). Having established his reputation as a talented flautist in the late 1950s and 1960s, Moe's Curried Soul saw Koffman move from straight-up jazz into the world of fusion. Released in 1969 on Karma Sutra records, Curried Soul is a funk/soul/jazz explosion. The title track is the winner here, funky and jazzy in equal measure. If you can tolerate jazz flute you'll surely find a lot to like – great guitar, nice horn section and (presumably to justify the "curried" part of the title) just a tickle of sitar ... all of which builds to a satisfyingly cosmic finale. The rest of the album has a definite 1970s Sesame Street vibe going on (particularly the cover of You Are My Sunshine which jars somewhat as it immediately follows Curried Soul) but Koffman's covers of High Heel Sneakers and Cantelope Island are worth a listen.By Trampy and the Tramp

Gary Burton - Good Vibes 1971 (Atlantic)

Label : Atlantic

Value  :

Gary Burton hits a sweet electric funky sound here – a great groove that really makes the album stand out from most of his other work! The support Burton gets is a big reason for the greatness of the date – as he's working in a group that includes Eric Gale on guitar, Richard Tee on piano and organ, Chuck Rainey on bass, and Bernard Purdie on drums. The album's got a bit of trippiness to it – kind of in the style of some of Herbie Mann's funky production work for the Vortex label – and a few cuts have producer Joel Dorn working with Arif Mardin on the cuts, giving them a more expansive sound that pushes Burton's playing nicely.

Narassa ‎– Viaggio Pop N. 1 & 2 2015 (Cinedelic)

Label : Cinedelic

Value :

This double LP by Sandro Brugnolini under the pseudonym of Narassa, is a mix of funk and progressive rock with drums, electric guitar, organ and flute lead the way. Recorded in early 70’s there are clear references to those who at the time was the international rock and prog standard, but clearly all reread and interpreted in the Italian style that distinguished us.

Gabor Szabo ‎– In Budapest 2008 (Moiras)

Label : Moiras

Value :

The Hungarian-born jazz guitar legend was at the peak of his career in 1974, when he first visited his abandoned homeland after 18 years of absence. He was invited by the Hungarian Television to record a few tracks with session musicians of his choice. The project came to life in September 1974, when six artists gathered in a studio of the Hungarian Radio and gave an hour-long, live concert. The program was compiled mostly of material from Szabo’s albums published in the West, as well, as arrangements of Hungarian and international pop hits. The sessions’ television broadcast was quite a success that in fact officially introduced this great artist to his homeland’s audience. The recordings have remained unreleased to this day.By Moiras Rec.
