This excellent and EXTREMELY rare original private pressing from 1975 is difficult to comfortably categorize. I guess you could get away with calling it a soul jazz or jazz funk LP (yes, there are funky cuts and, yes, there is a dope drum break), but that wouldn’t do this fantastic album justice as it also has strong elements of spiritual jazz, Sun Ra style space psychedelia, brooding atmospheric electronica and even one grooving calypso-like jam.
Owen Marshall was a very interesting and creative musician (note all the instruments that he plays on this album). He’s played with truly great musicians such as Max Roach, Jackie McLean, and even Chet Baker. He received composer and arranger credits on Lee Morgan’s first two Blue Note albums and appears on both of Calvin Keys, Black Jazz label releases.
