STONE ALLIANCE - HEADS UP

Don Alias-Drums, Congas, Percussion, Voice;Gene Perla-Bass, Acoustic Piano, Voice;Kenny Kirkland-Keyboards;Bob Mintzer-Tenor Saxophone;Jan Hammer-Keyboards;Michael Brecker-Tenor Saxophone;Alex Acuna-Drums;Robert Piltch-Guitar;David Liebman-Soprano Saxophone;Randy Brecker-Fluglehorn;Alan Rubin-Cornet;Jim Pugh-Trombone;Bob Smith-Trombone
Produced by Gene Perla

Gene Perla and Don Alias reformed Stone Alliance for this cracking slab of break heavy funky fusion in 1980.Alias,Perla,Bob Mintzer and Kenny Kirkland are the principal soloists and the rest of the band make up the ensemble playing.Perla and Alias knocked out all the tunes with the exception of Toninho Horta's "Pedro Da Lua" and Orlando "Cachaito" Lopez's "Para Los Papinos",a typically heavy percussion driven piece.
Check out the PM Records sight here-it's well worth a visit.
Ripped @320 from the original vinyl-there's a cd reissue available from Mambo Maniacs.

Like that great philosopher Butt-head once said, "I never knew something could kick this much ass!"

Thanks for all the mind-blowing shares. I'm in awe every time I come to his blog.

I do not know this album. I first discovered Stone Alliance through the track "Sweetie Pie", I then found the album Stone Alliance released on P.M records in 1976. since then they have been one of my favourite jazz groups. Looking forward to listening and experiencing the "Heads Up" album. Thank you.
