Power Of Soul

£ 21.99


This album is one of the reasons that Idris Muhammad is regarded as the drumming king of groove. Featuring the arrangements and keyboards of Bob James, the saxophone punch of Grover Washington, Jr., guitarist Joe Beck, trumpeter Randy Brecker, percussionist Ralph MacDonald, and the knife-edge slick production of Creed Taylor, this 1974 issue is a burning piece of deep, jazzy soul and grooved-out bliss. The funk flies fast and heavy, particularly on the title track - a Jimi Hendrix composition. Soaring solos by Grover and James, who follow Muhammad's powerful pace. Beck's own solo is unique in that he moves against the tempo just a bit, which only increases the listener's dependence on the groove of Muhammad. Clocking in at only 34 minutes it's a perfect slice of the raw emotion which Muhammad was pulling down at the time.
