Description


The fourth entry in the Jazz Dispensary/Vinyl Me Please series dives deeper into the masters of the jazz-funk drum kit, this time with the debut release from Idris Muhammad, a New Orleans-bred rhythm king who successfully made the leap from the finest soulful jazz records of the ’60s to the nastiest fusion funk of the ’70s. Here we catch him literally on the cusp of the two in 1970, with one good foot in the get-down of “Express Yourself” and “Super Bad,” and the other in his own heady excursions into modal rhythm and melody. The two moods are neatly divided into sides A and B, a beautiful example of the sequencing and listening experience only vinyl can provide.
