in 1976, jazz keyboardist weldon irvine was in a transitional phase of his career. having spent years as nina simone's band leader, he had developed into a full-formed, mature musician by the early 70s, creating a sound that combined modern jazz, soul, funk and blues with an underlying social and spiritual consciousness. 'sinbad', his last ever album for a major label, marked the high point of that period. mixing original songs with covers by marvin gaye ('what's goin' on') and stevie wonder ('don't you worry'bout a thing'), irvine led an exemplary group of players - guitarist eric bale, saxophonist michael brecker and a breakout performance by pianist don blackman, who also supplied vocals - on an ambitious, intricate musical journey that's both technically brilliant and emotionally striking. afterwards, irvine found further success in writing musical stage productions, leaving 'sinbad' as one of his final - and greatest - recordings. get on down is proud to present weldon irvine's masterpiece 'sinbad' as it was intended to be experienced, with a beautiful new digital transfer from the original analog tapes.
