Reggie Andrews And The Fellowship Mystic Beauty 180g LP (Vinyl)
& lt;header & gt; & lt;p & gt; & lt;strong & gt;'60s Jazz Holy Grail Album On 180g Vinyl LP! & lt;/strong & gt; & lt;/p & gt; & lt;/header & gt; & lt;p & gt;Mad About Records present a reissue of Reggie Andrews and The Fellowship's Mystic Beauty, originally released in 1969. '60s jazz holy grail LP out of California -- a mythical album on many jazz collector's want-lists. & lt;/p & gt; & lt;p & gt;This LP was originally released on the extremely limited and sought-after private press label HME. It has deep Latin, Afro/Cuban-influences, and consists primarily of acoustic jazz pieces. Influences also range from the cerebral to the soulful, but it defies any one-dimensional tag like & quot;spiritual jazz & quot; or & quot;soul-jazz & quot; or & quot;jazz-funk & quot;. Heralding from LA and led by pianist Reggie Andrews, it doesn't sound particularly & quot;west coast & quot;. It's a beautiful session all around, really something special and profound. In recent years, Reggie Andrews has taught, mentored, and produced many talented musicians including Patrice Rushen, Terrace Martin, Ndugu Chancler, and the Dazz Band who wrote & quot;Let It Whip & quot;, along with his close friend Leon Ndugu Chancler. He is the founder of the jazz-fusion group Karma. He worked with Earth, Wind & amp; Fire, produced Moacir Santos for Blue Note Records, served as an & quot;electronics consultant & quot; for Donald Byrd, and took to mentoring The Pharcyde and J Dilla. & lt;/p & gt; & lt;section id= & quot;features & quot; & gt; & lt;h3 & gt;Features & lt;/h3 & gt; & lt;ul & gt; & lt;li & gt;180g Vinyl & lt;/li & gt; & lt;li & gt;Deluxe heavy cardboard sleeve with OBI & lt;/li & gt; & lt;li & gt;Import & lt;/li & gt; & lt;/ul & gt; & lt;/section & gt; & lt;section id= & quot;musicians & quot; & gt; & lt;h3 & gt;Musicians & lt;/h3 & gt; & lt;table & gt; & lt;tr & gt; & lt;th & gt;J.

Johnny Griffith The Geneva Connection 180g LP (Vinyl)
& lt;header & gt; & lt;p & gt; & lt;strong & gt;Hard To Find Detroit Jazz-Funk Album On 180g Vinyl LP! & lt;/strong & gt; & lt;/p & gt; & lt;/header & gt; & lt;p & gt;Mad About Records present a reissue of Johnny Griffith's The Geneva Connection, originally released on the Detroit Geneva label in 1974. & lt;/p & gt; & lt;p & gt;An extremely rare album by Detroit-based jazz keyboard player Johnny Griffith known for the album Together, Togetherness on RCA (1974). Music From The Connection was composed by jazz pianist Freddie Redd for Jack Gelber's 1959 play The Connection. This first recording of the music was released on the Blue Note label in 1960. It features performances by Redd and Jackie McLean. Jack Gelber originally planned for the play to feature improvised music performed by jazz musicians who would also play small roles in the production. Freddie Redd, however, persuaded Gelber to include his original score. Redd re-recorded the score later in 1960 as Music From The Connection. & lt;/p & gt; & lt;p & gt;In 1974, the pianist Johnny Griffith, a member of the prestigious Motown rhythm section Funk Brothers at the time, covered the whole album, playing electric piano here, which really changes the vibe of the music -- and the players are supposedly a host of Motown studio musicians -- playing jazz here, but with a nice funky soul undercurrent. Pianist Johnny Griffith can be heard on classic Motown sides, as well as on recordings from other Detroit-area labels. Like Motown's other pianists, Joe Hunter and Earl Van Dyke, Griffith's had an extensive musical background. & lt;/p & gt; & lt;p & gt;Signed to Motown's Jazz Workshop label, he recorded the albums Detroit Jazz and The Right Side of Lefty Edwards (1964). When the march of the Motown hits began, Griffith started playing on sessions for their R & amp;B/pop acts. But rather than signing a work-for-hire contract with Motown like other musicians, Griffith remained a freelancer, doing other dates and sessions in New York and nearby Chicago. The Motown hits that Griffith played on include: Marvin Gaye's & quot;How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You) & quot;, his celeste trills are heard on & quot;Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology) & quot;, adding Wurlitzer electric piano on both Gaye's & quot;I Heard It Through the Grapevine & quot;, and the Temptations' & quot;Ain't Too Proud to Beg & quot;, organ on the Supremes' & quot;Stop In The Name Of Love & quot;, and organ and shotgun effects on Junior Walker and the All Stars' & quot;Shotgun & quot;. Griffith's non-Motown hits are with Edwin Starr, Jackie Wilson, The Chi-Lites, and Young-Holt Unlimited's & quot;Soulful Strut & quot;. & lt;/p & gt; & lt;section id= & quot;features & quot; & gt; & lt;h3 & gt;Features & lt;/h3 & gt; & lt;ul & gt; & lt;li & gt;180g Vinyl & lt;/li & gt; & lt;li & gt;Deluxe heavy cardboard sleeve with OBI & lt;/li & gt; & lt;li & gt;Import & lt;/li & gt; & lt;/ul & gt; & lt;/section & gt; & lt;section id= & quot;musicians & quot; & gt; & lt;h3 & gt;Musicians & lt;/h3 & gt; & lt;table & gt; & lt;tr & gt; & lt;th & gt;Johnny Griffith & lt;/th & gt; & lt;td & gt;electric piano & lt;/td & gt; & lt;/tr & gt; & lt;tr & gt; & lt;th & gt;Roderick (Peanut) Chandler & lt;/th & gt; & lt;td & gt;bass & lt;/td & gt; & lt;/tr & gt; & lt;tr & gt; & lt;th & gt;Will Austin & lt;/th & gt; & lt;td & gt;bass & lt;/td & gt; & lt;/tr & gt; & lt;tr & gt; & lt;th & gt;Richard (Pistol) Allen & lt;/th & gt; & lt;td & gt;drums & lt;/td & gt; & lt;/tr & gt; & lt;tr & gt; & lt;th & gt;Earl Thomas & lt;/th & gt; & lt;td & gt;guitar & lt;/td & gt; & lt;/tr & gt; & lt;tr & gt; & lt;th & gt;Robert White & lt;/th & gt; & lt;td & gt;guitar & lt;/td & gt; & lt;/tr & gt; & lt;tr & gt; & lt;th & gt;Floyd Jones & lt;/th & gt; & lt;td & gt;trumpet & lt;/td & gt; & lt;/tr & gt; & lt;/table & gt; & lt;/section & gt; & lt;section id= & quot;selections & quot; & gt; & lt;h3 & gt;Selections & lt;/h3 & gt; & lt;h4 & gt;Side One: & lt;/h4 & gt; & lt;ol & gt; & lt;li & gt;Sister Salvation & lt;/li & gt; & lt;li & gt;Music Forever & lt;/li & gt; & lt;li & gt;Who Killed Cock Robin? & lt;/li & gt; & lt;/ol & gt; & lt;h4 & gt;Side Two: & lt;/h4 & gt; & lt;ol & gt; & lt;li & gt;Wiggling & lt;/li & gt; & lt;li & gt;O.D.
