Plat du Jour : Roger Glenn - Reachin' (1976)

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'additionUn 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 !
