Hailing from Indianapolis, Caesar Frazier (spelled "Ceasar" from time to time) was a funky soul-jazz organist who recorded several albums for the Eastbound/Westbound label family during the '70s. In addition to recording on his own, Frazier also played keyboards in Marvin Gaye's backing band. Collaborations with contemporaries were numerous, and to this day Frazier’s legacy is still alive through samples and remixes from outfits such as Gang Starr and Arrested Development.
In 1972 Frazier cut his first album Hail Ceasar! which featured musicians commonly associated with the Prestige label's jazz-funk outings—Melvin Sparks (guitar), Houston Person (tenor), and Idris Muhammad (drums).
Next to his own material you can also find a few cover tunes on here (by Quincy Jones, Isaac Hayes, David Gates of Bread, and Sly Stone). Production on the album was handled by Bob Porter (responsible for many superb jazz productions for Prestige and Atlantic) and to top it all off, recording duties were handled by Rudy Van Gelder (known for recording Miles Davis in the early 1950’s and the countless work he did for Blue Note, Prestige, Verve, and many others).
This is soul-jazz at its finest.

Due to COVID-19 and its impact on manufacturing, we are experiencing pre-order delays more frequently. We’ll keep the estimated ship months as up to date as possible, but please be advised.
If you have multiple products in your order, you can choose the ‘Direct Ship’ option to receive products as they become available in multiple shipments. Otherwise, they will be grouped in a single shipment (or your next ROTM shipment for members) after all products are received at our warehouse.
Since pre-order albums are not available to ship until the manufacturing completes, the actual ship date can shift. If there is a delay, we will always contact you.
