Beautiful! Very Hubert Law-esque... Tranquil + Tzigane are absolutely genius.
Thank you very much!

Hey Bacoso, thanks for this super share.

cheeba said...

I'm with Holden on the standouts being Tranquil & Tzigane. O Mercado & Sambinha are good too but I don't find McNeill's as strong on those. The band's definitely tight throughout and now I've added "Asha" to my mental list of albums to check out. Thanks much Bacoso!

Thanks so much for the Lloyd McNeill! My copy of this burned in a house fire years ago and I thought I'd never hear it again. Imagine my surprise and delight. I don't want to be greedy, but do you or anyone out there have his album "Elegia"? It's another fine one.

Bacoso said...

Yes I have Elegia will post it at some point in the future
