Buddy Terry R.I.P.

That’s a pity :( I was recently searching for a thread about him but couldn’t find anything. Was doubting to buy the Awareness and other Mainstream album. Not really a well known player but the personell on those dates look very good.

'Awareness' and 'Pure Dynamite' are wonderful albums - you'll love them.  "Baba Hengates" on the latter is especially wonderful.  Underappreciated player.  RIP.

I’ll keep them on my wishlist, thanks! Already had a feeling these albums were great.

I can find no YT clip for "The Revealing Time" which is the crown jewel of the bunch. It's like Unity, only played by a local Newark Band.

But of course there's a nice boogaloo cut by the same quartet, and also of course there is a clip of that up:

I'm afraid this is the first I've heard of him. Not sure how that happened from reading about him now.

Anyone have personnel info on: Lean On Him, Pure Dynamite and Awareness?

Yes, Bridgewater, Buster Williams, Mickey Roker, Stanley Cowell, Woody Shaw, Eddie Enderson and more of that... can’t go wrong with these guys :)

Newark produced some fine musicians.  With Connie Lester's passing earlier this year, we've lost two Newark stalwarts (and Freddie Roach sidemen).  I only know Buddy Terry through Roach's The Soul Book, but Terry's leader dates look mighty interesting.  Thank you for the music, Mr. Terry, and rest in peace.

Awareness was one of my christmas/birthday gives by my wife this year. On vinyl to be precisely. What an awesome album. Intense stuff! Terry is on fire, so is Cowell :)
