James Marentic for Discovery from 1982.
James Marentic-Sax/Flute; Tom Harrell -Trumpet/Flugelhorn; Slide Hampton-Trombone; Larry Willis-Piano; Anthony Cox-Bass; Victor Lewis-Drums.

Storming post hard bop outing for Mr Marentic and his all star band. Check out the banging latin romp "Baile de las Cucharachas " which kicks off the lp in fine style and the Coltrane inspired "Nimbus". "Aphrodesia" has the inspiration of Kenny Dorham stamped all over it and no prizes for guessing who "Mr Silver I Presume" is aimed at
If you enjoyed Tom Harrell's "Aurora" post then this should be right up your street,round your corner and down your block!

Thanks for this post. Played with Jim when I was very young and never knew about this record. He's still kicking around NYC but not sure where his gigs are.

There was this guy who believed very much in true love and decided to take his time to wait for his right girl to appear.

You may painfully regret, only to realise that it is too late.
