Bio:  from Larry Bright’s web site:   

His first great interest in drumming developed in the early 70s after seeing Bill Cobham. Larry began studying under master drummer Purnell Rice. He remembers, "Those times were hard. I was the oldest student in the class. I remember studying my paradiddles & patterns and these 14-15 year old kids would sit down and smoke me." Fortunately, Larry wasn't the type to give up easily.

After two and a half years of study with Purnell Rice, Larry enrolled at the Peabody Conservatory of Music and it was there that he studied with Chuck Memphis. He learned advanced rhythms & techniques, which cultivated his individual style. Two and a half years later, he began his professional career. His first gig was with Michael Urbaniak in New York City. After laying down a few tracks for the album, word spread about this sensational new drummer.

Larry Bright has played with the likes of Sun Ra, Ahmad Jamal, Buddy Guy, Scott Ambush, Frank Gambale, Paquito d’Rivera, John Scofield, John Lee Hooker, Gary Grainger, Victor Wooten, Tom Coster, Ben E. King, Big Mama Thornton, and Carl Filipiak.


Vinyl:  Vinyl is NEAR MINT with 100% of original gloss, as clean as can be found.  No sign of ever having been on a turntable, likely unplayed.  Labels are clean and pristine with no spindle trail marks.  Fidelity is superb.  A gorgeous disc you will never need to upgrade.

Cover:  EXCELLENT with flawless front and back panels.  Seams and spine are excellent.  A few slight traces of wear along top seam and bottom right corner is clipped (cut-out), otherwise flawless. 

Includes original vintage insert sheet with Larry Bright bio and background information pertaining to this LP, in top condition.

Very rare to find this private-label jazz fusion classic in any condition.  You will be hard pressed to find one this nice!
