It depends on your geek factor, but I find it fascinating.

Now moving up a decade or two.

Honestly, I loved them both and couldn't pick. Volume 2 has a lot of New Orleans music in it, just recorded in Chicago. There's also a volume 3, Sounds of Harlem, which I don't have.

On further thought, I would give the edge to Volume 1 because it devotes an entire side to Sam Morgan's Jazz Band.

Paul Bley with Gary Peacock, ECM 1003, 1970, German release, I’m assuming it’s an original pressing. 
An introspective, wild, and searching trio recording, not very good from the engineering  aspect, to me it sounds recorded on a single stereo mic directly to a reel deck, in a rehearsal space somewhere in New York.

Tone Poet

Nice sounding LP and the music was better than I expected. I don't know why, but I always thought this would be boring funk, especially with the All Music review. I think it's a fun record and Idris Mohammed is great.

The Lou is a good one, in excellent sound. ‘No fusion confusion’, to quote the maestro.

The All Music Guide is a helpful resource, but its writers are not trustworthy when it comes to soul jazz and/or funky jazz. 

In this listener's opinion. ;)

If you like Donaldson's "Mr. Shing A Ling" and you still spin LPs, the Tone Poet LP sounds very nice. Well worth picking up.

I'm not familiar with Mr. Shing-A-Ling -- but I love the record that preceded it, Alligator Bogaloo.  

So I bet I'd dig it.  Thanks for the recommendation. :tup

Read the review for Alligator Bogaloo...lol. This guy hates some Lou D funk, even stating that Leo Morris AKA Idris Muhammad isn't comfortable playing contemporary funk :lol:

In my experience, it's a fairly common thing for critics/reviewers to disparage soul jazz and funky jazz as less worthy, "selling out," etc.

It's not an attitude that I share. 

So I just ignore those sorts of reviews. :g
