Joe Chambers' first solo effort from 1971/73 on Muse Records with the following line up :
Personnel: Joe Chambers (drums); Harold Vick (tenor saxophone, flute); Woody Shaw (trumpet); Garnett Brown (trombone); Omar Clay, David Friedman, Doug Hawthorne,Ray Mantilla (marimba, percussion); Cedar Walton (acoustic & electric pianos); George Cables (electric piano);Cecil McBee (Bass);Walter Booker, Richard Davis (Fender Bass).
As the title suggests this has lp something of the Latin/Spanish Tinge about it and has been a great favourite of mine for many years.Highly recommended.
Ripped at 320 from the original vinyl-there is a cd reissue on 32 jazz available with different cover art.

Having heard Chambers exceptional drumming and composing with Bobby Hutcherson, I've been curious to hear music with Joe as a leader.

Very talented guy who seems to be underappreciated.

thanks for posting.

Thanks man, great album! One request though - if you are already posting high-bitrate music, why don't you compress it using normal Stereo instead of the (quite shitty) Joint Stereo. Folks with good stereos (such as myself) will greatly appreciate that :)

... and again:

hi bacoso - I’ve linked to your post of this album as part of the historical background for my post of John Stubblefield’s “Prelude” (1978), see here

Please note that I’m linking to your actual blog page, not directly to your files, of course – so people will be taken to your blog to have a look around.

All the best,

Oh yeah. Going through your post history I am astonished at some of the records that made it here; this is among the all time greats.
