John Mayall – Jazz Blues Fusion

front.jpg

This is an outstanding reissue that deserves a listen by all blues fans. Mayall’s legacy may well be assembling and recognizing talent long before those individual’s move on to become household names. Here however, Mayall keeps the formula simple by adding the trumpet of Blue Mitchel and Sax of Clifford Solomon with the guitar of Freddy Robinson and the precussion of Ron Selico for some fantastic, ahead of its time, Blues with a Jazz flavor. Stand outs are the Trumpet led “Good Times Boogie” and the jam, “Exercise In C Major For Harmonica” If you missed it the first time around on vinyl, be sure and pick it up on CD. Simply outstanding.
