Heaven On Earth

£ 21.99


Organist Larry Young, who really found his own sound back in 1965 with the classic Unity album, is deep in the funk on this later Blue Note album (which has been included in the Mosaic box set The Complete Blue Note Recordings of Larry Young). With altoist Byard Lancaster, tenor saxophonist Herbert Morgan, guitarist George Benson, and drummer Eddie Gladden completing the quintet, there are some explorative solos but the less imaginative funk rhythms lower the content of the music somewhat. Larry's wife Althea Young has an effective vocal on "My Funny Valentine," but overall this is a lesser effort.
