    Does anyone like the B side to this? I do, but it's very strange, it goes from crap to awesome to crap to brilliant again. I think it's Joe singing isn't it... if so, he's got a voice more suitable for instrumentals.

    A nice track featuring a young Joe Zawinul. Unfortunately I've only got a shortened version on 45............ another LP to add to the want list...

    Steady on chaps. Put the "Yes" albums away and listen to some proper "head" music....

    Good choice! Although I would of gone for "People make the world go round". I had this on the deck last night...

    Afrobeat, Afrofunk....and all that sort of thing

    Picked this one up in a junk shop for £2 because it looked interesting. It's a afrobeat / latin hybrid but check out the personnel... Ron Carter, Billy Cobham, Ray Barretto, Bob Cranshaw, etc.

    Regarding earlier conversations in the thread.... I received my Idris Muhammad "Power of Soul" yesterday.... wow. I'm going to stick my neck out and say it's my favourite Bob James outing, and my favourite Grover Washington stuff, and my favourite Kudu release. With good pair of headphones and a relaxing "cigarette" it blew my mind. Cheers Themroc. Regarding the merits of Stanley Clarke who was discussed earlier, I just thought I'd mention that he's responsible for the heavy bassline on the Charles Rouse track I posted. Here's a nice 2017 release from Finland. Puts me in mind of my favourite era of Blue Note records.....

    My pick for the day just about fits into the jazz category but is a beautiful and uplifiting song none the less.

    Great! Did you see the documentary about Latin music in New York (mostly Fania) a week or two ago? https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b00qjnxf/latin-music-usa-2-salsa

    Loving the choices so far, a lot of them are new to me. Anyhoo, did someone mention Eddie Harris..... Strap yourselves in....Bernard Purdy's all over this one.

    However many records you own there are always so many more that you haven't heard of, one of the reasons I visit this forum. So many thanks to Themroc, I've loved that Idris Muhammad track for almost 30 years - but the only version of it I've heard was on the "Paul's Boutique" LP where the Beasties sampled it. I've ordered Idris' LP this morning though. Anyhow, here's another one of my favourites... another one on Strata East, The Heath Brothers - Smilin Billy Suite. Sadly I haven't got the original vinyl of this, but I have got the recent reissue which is real nice quality.
