BAYETE ( TODD COCHRAN) - WORLDS AROUND THE SUN


























Bayete(Todd Cochran) for Prestige from 1972.
The Hutcherson connection rolls on with this funked up bit of spiritual jazz with a great supporting line up including Bobby Hutcherson,James Leary,Hadley Caliman,Oscar Brashaer and more.You may remember Bayete from Hutcherson's "Head On ",one of my previous posts,on which he played piano and also wrote most of the lp.On the strength of his work with Hutch he scored a record deal with Prestige and this was the result.
Here's a review from Soul Strut:

Bayete recorded Worlds Around The Sun when he was only 20 years old. The album fluctuates between straight Bop like on It Ain’t and spiritual Jazz like Njeri (Belonging to a warrior). Sandwiched in between however, are a few hot Funk tracks like Free Angela (Thoughts … and all I’ve got to say), a song dedicated to Black activist Angela Davis. The song opens with a nice stop and go drum break before some affects are added to make it sound like a b-boy break. Then the singing and the rest of the band join in for a mid-tempo jam session before ending on a spiritual note. I’m On It has a similar groove to it.

Ripped @320 from the original vinyl-No reissues,

Filling in the gaps. Could you check for credits? I realize this is a long shot, and may be making a total fool of myself.
