JOE FARRELL - CANNED FUNK






















Joe Farrell with a bangin' CTI date from 1975 featuring yet another monster break- driven title tune.Bit of a biggie for those who like their fusion.Never re-issued as far as I know-or did one sneak thru on cd in Japan?

Joe Farrell's final of six CTI dates has fairly lengthy versions of four of his originals. Farrell, who adds baritone to his usual trio of instruments (tenor, soprano and flute), once again welcomes guitarist Joe Beck as his co-star, along with bassist Herb Bushler, drummer Jim Madison and percussionist Ray Mantilla. The music is melodic, sometimes funky, and enjoyable if not essential, but all of Joe Farrell's CTI sets are worth acquiring.Scott Yanow.

Ripped from original vinyl at 320.Many thanks to Rui in Okinawa for another great cover photo-top work my friend!
