Far from essential, but equally far from unpleasant!

No piano, please note, just organ.

I had no idea that record existed, never seen it before.  And that's an impeccable rhythm section!

 

 

Still more John Stowell . . .

I love the sound of this ensemble -- with Tsilis' concert marimba (no vibes) and Stewart's tuba. Far from a garden-variety "alto with rhythm" date.

That Baystate catalog is ripe for a systematic issuing in the US, or could be, As it is (or was)...the Internet has been my friend, it and Dusty Groove from time to time.

Was that reissued on CD?

Not that I am aware of. It's a really nice period piece, kinda modeled after the Charles Lloyd records of the time, maybe. Only a LOT friskier. That rhythm section (none of whom I recognized without some digging) is all in, as is Watts.

I'm not at all an Ernie Watts fan, but this was a fun listen. I found a LP copy in "acceptable" condition for a good sigle-digit price, so keep an eye out.

Himmelstein (whoever he is / was) seemed to be on some illicit substance when he wrote his (interesting) notes!!

Blast from the past - remember seeing/hearing Stowell in a restaurant over 20 years ago. Not sure who was on bass, might have been Friesen.
