Jazz.  Nice , a few of my favorite things robbk . Nice! 👌👍👏🎶🎶🎶

Most of these were also played on the Soul stations in Chicago, Detroit, L.A. and The San Francisco Bay Area.  My parents were big Jazz fans.  I started listening to it from birth.

Sonny Fortune 'The Afro Americans'  from the Serengeti Minstrel lp released by Atlantic Records in 1977.

 

I love this fellas playing,not sure if many people will know his stuff but he's definitely overlooked in Jazz circles in my opinion..why that is I honestly don't know, his musicianship and compositions are top notch.

Great one! I likes a lot the first - mid 70's Crusaders stuff, a nice fusion of Jazz - Rock, when they were Wayne Henderson, Joe sample, Stix Hooper, Wilton Felder and rock guitarist Larry Carlton. Here's my favorite track from my absolute favorite Crusader's album, "Chain reaction" (ABC / Blue Thumb, 1976), "Allucinate":

 

Hey, Robb, I'm "Manny" on the legendary Soulful Detroit Forum. A question to you, please: do you knows what happens with this forum? I can't connect to, since a year ago and it's impossible to found any info on the web (!!!??). A great salute, "my old friend"!

Hugh Masekela what can you say? It's, for me, Going In Circles which has me on my knees sobbing like a child or this. 

Which is so sassy and upbeat!

Here's another jazz favorite of mine since my teens: "La fiesta" by Chick Corea that I have since I was aged 15 years - old on my copy of "Return To Forever" on ECM.

I should to say that little after I started to buy Soul 45's, k-7's and LP's at 13 years-old, I started to buy also my first jazz and fusion albums that, if my memory works correctly, in chronological order, were these ones: "Return To Forever" (Chick Corea); "Solar Wind" (Ramsey Lewis); "Live in L.A. (Vols. 1 & 2)" (CTI All-Stars); "The Aura Will prevail" (George Duke); "Secrets" (Herbie Hancock); "Deodato 2" (Eumir Deodato); "Chain Reaction" and "Southern Comfort" (2 x Lp, The Crusaders)... and are until today among my jazz and fusion favorites.

Fantastic! What people have to get there head around is the piano is a percussion instrument. Great bass playing BTW 😊
