Plucked out of a Goodwill the other day for 50 cents. Record looks awful but plays just fine (how did they make those old LPs that they could do that, look beat but sound fine?). Cover's really nice thick cardboard, plus the music has not been widely reissued, best as I can tell.

I was in the studio for the Boston session, as was Ran Blake who recruited the string players..

Oh wow. That's very cool.  ... Another story that you should share in a memoir, a book that you NEED to WRITE! ;)

Based on Murray`s prolific recording career in the 80`s some of his recording tend to remain overlooked .... this is one of these with an superb rhythm section ....

I haven't spun this one in a while. Time to rectify that... playing now, :)

Yeah, I remember. The 1980's were when I was just beginning to dig into jazz -- and it seemed like Murray was releasing a new album every week!

Speaking of the superb rhythm section . . . Ed Blackwell plays SO beautifully on that record.

Great music, not the greatest sound. Workman's bass does not sound right here. Whiny sound.

I recently reacquired a record that I have yet to keep after playing it a few times. I've probably owned it 3 or 4 times by now but this is the first time I've had it on vinyl. Weirdly, I'm enjoying it more now than I ever have in the past. It's not great but it's not as bad as I seem to remember it. I still don't like when Washington hits one of those falsetto notes and I'm not a huge fan of the cymbal work by Chambers.

Tyrone Washington - Natural Essence (Blue Note). I think this is an original pressing.

An original would be Liberty blue/white labels.

I must admit I don´t have this. Of course I have seen the cover many many times, and though I never heard how Tyrone Washington plays the participation of greats like Woody Shaw, "Spee", and a fantastic rhythm section , all of them among my favourites makes me want to listen to it.

Don´t know how the cymbal work by Chambers sounds here, but on all other records I have with him and I have many, that´s exactly what I love.

About "those falsetto notes"...... well...... have you read Horace Silver´s autobiography "Get to the Gritty Nitty" , Horace is such a kind person and always speaks in a very kind manner about all fellow musicians, but he has no kind words for Tyrone Washington and that his trips into avantgarde did not fit into the bands conception.

Now I really might give this album a chance, since....though my first love is be- and hardbop, I have listened to and admired a lot of 60´s avantgarde too, love Pharoah Sanders, Albert Ayler, Archie Shepp, so maybe I wouldn´t be too surprised if I´d hear some falsetto screams if it makes sense to me.....
