Leon Thomas - Blues and the Soulful Truth

Time travel

It's back to 1972, and here the 'blues' is again consumed within other sounds, this time soulfunk and jazz, as Leon Thomas, who sang with Pharoah Sanders, sets down vocal grooves with the impressive support of Cecil Payne, Pee Wee Ellis, Larry Coryell, Stanley Clarke and many others.

This is spaced-out in its own varying momentary rights, and the Blues get their best gutsy representation in 'C.C. Rider' with smoothcool violin by John Blair.

We have arrived.
