Angelic Streams [Quadrophonic Sound, 1975]
Angelic Streams - A rare 70s session from keyboardist David Durrah -- a player who's probably best known for his contribution to other folks' work on labels like Black Jazz or Tribe Records, but who sounds equally great here on his own as a leader! The group features heavy keyboards from Durrah, over some wonderfully complex rhythms -- all in just the sort of spiritual vibe you'd hope for, as David's Fender Rhodes and other keys stretch out beautifully over a set of long jams handled by a combo with Calvin Keys on guitar, Alex Foster on tenor and soprano sax, Don Pate on bass, and Buddy Williams on drums. The album's a gem through and through -- the kind of lost treasure we're amazingly pleased to have discovered after all these years -- and it definitely lives up to all the promise you'd expect from Durrah's other work! Titles include "Angelic Streams", "Skippin The Blues", "Subway Dance", "Hole In The Pocket", "African Violet", and "Sweet Diane".
