Features the high-fidelity SHM-CD format (compatible with standard CD player) and the latest 24bit 192kHz remastering. The most free-thinking Larry Young album of the 60s – and that's saying a lot, considering the rest of his work! The session's quite an unusual one – with two drummers in the group, grounding a sextet that features Larry on organ, James Spaulding on alto and flute, Herbert Morgan on tenor sax, and the great Eddie Gale on trumpet! The tracks are all quite long, open, and flowing – richly organic, and kind of an extension of the groove first laid down by Young on Unity – pushed into more spiritual, late-Coltrane territory. The sound is amazing – incredibly majestic, and on a par with the most far-reaching jazz on Impulse Records of the late 60s – a real standout for Blue Note, and for Young, who wouldn't record this way again until the 70s! Titles include "Falaq", "Seven Steps To Heaven", "Of Love & Peace", and "Pavanne".
The final album from the late blues guitar legend and W.C. Handy Award winner Mel Brown. Features previously unreleased tracks of Mel at his very best with his close friend the Chicago harp legend Snooky Pryor, fellow Mississippi mojo master Sam Myers (Anson Funderburgh & The Rockets), Miss Angel and his protege emerging guitar star Enrico Crivellaro. Also includes unreleased vintage tracks from his Bluesway/Impulse era heyday in the early 1970's with additional guitar solos recorded by Mel in 2009. The haunting and achingly beautiful original instrumental title track Love, Lost and Found on which Mel played guitar, piano and B-3 organ may be the pinnacle of his incredible career.
