Chronique Dusty Groove
A great lost chapter in the Larry Mizell story – a record that's not nearly as well known as Mizell-produced jams for Bobbi Humphrey or Johnny Hammond, but which is every bit as great! Roger Glenn's a funky flute player with a really great groove – California groovy, with just a touch of Latin – served up here with some great Mizell-infused touches – that rolling rhythm on the bottom, soaring instrumentation on the top, and some great Latin elements that are wrapped up warmly in the fusion! There's plenty of great keyboards, too – played both by Larry Mizell, and also by Mark Soskin – a range of Fender Rhodes, Arp, mini-moog, and more – all adding in the right sort of warmth to Roger's flute, and the album's rich array of percussion. Titles include "Kick", "Reachin", "Rio", "Gloria", "Overtime", and "Don't Leave".
L'addition : Un Duo de Mizzell sauce Glenn-Fidish ! Roger Glenn était un inconnu pour nous il y a quelques mois. Quand nous avons appris que les frères Mizzell étaient derriere les manettes.... Amateurs de bon Jazz-Funk, il y a une vie après Donald Byrd !
