We can argue the politics of the late 1960s until we're apoplectic with rage, yet one fact remains clear: those turbulent times were (indirectly) responsible for Melvyn Price's relocation to Europe, spawning the delivery of a classic jazz & soul record: Price's Rhythm and Blues. The opening track showcases Price's Cuban-flavored sound, with a long percussion segment that segues into the main theme thrown down by Ed Epstein's killer sax. A bit later, pianist Bjorn Wolff takes a long solo that's always bolstered by a funky bassline and the entire cast of soulful percussion. Soul from Scandinavia...who knew?!!
