''Thank You Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin''

Reviewed By: Motown67
After recording several records for World Pacific Jazz/Liberty, the Jazz Crusaders released one record on Chisa, a subsidiary of Motown before becoming just the Crusaders. While the band started out playing Bop, by the 1970s they were a full-fledged Soul-Jazz outfit covering popular hits of the time, while also recording original material as well. Even when they do other people’s music, they often times re-arrange parts of it to give it their own personal spin, such as on Sly Stone’s Thank You that takes off in a completely different direction half way through. The following tracks are a mix of the upbeat and grooving like Funny Shuffle and Jackson! that closes with a refrain from Sly Stone’s Everyday People, Hard Times, and the slower and soulful Why Do You Laugh At Me? the Beatles’ Golden Slumbers, and their original classic Way Back Home.

''Hard Times''

Reviewed by Thom Jurek (AMG):
Old Socks, New Shoes...New Socks, Old Shoes was the final album by the Jazz Crusaders. Immediately thereafter they dropped the word "jazz" from their name, leaving them the Crusaders and most of the rest is history. This killer set was released on the Chisa label in 1970 and distributed by Motown. While the Jazz Crusaders had long made then-current popular songs part of their repertoire, and had moved from their hard bop origins into the soul-jazz groove years before, this disc was a shock, and sounded like a different band -- almost. For starters, pianist Joe Sample moved over the Rhodes for the majority for this date (he is still one of the greatest voices on this strange, imprecise instrument), and along with drummer Stix Hooper, saxophonist Wilton Felder, and trombonist Wayne Henderson, guitarists Arthur Adams and Freddie Robinson helped out on bass and guitar, respectively. the Jazz Crusaders soul-jazz sound slid on over to an early version of jazz-funk, without sacrificing any of its emotionally engaged interplay or melodic foundation. Still, hearing the two electric guitars, a fat, nasty electric bassline, and Sample's big chunky funk chords signaling the beginning of Sly & the Family Stone's "Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)" as the album's kick off must have made fans do a double take -- until the horns kick in. It's trademark Jazz Crusaders there. The front line of Felder and Henderson with those near patented breaks of Hooper's would assure all that despite the electricity, the group was onto something new, different, and as greasy and soulful as they had been in the past. This is one of those forgotten Crusaders albums, being on the seam of their transition. Even Pass the Plate, which followed on Chisa, was better known than Old Socks and has been served by history a little better.
Henderson composed four tunes here and Sample one, and Felder's "Way Back Home," a live staple for the group, closed this set out. Henderson's tunes are the real stand-outs of the originals. "Funky Shuffle," with its slippery backbeat and alternating guitars before the rolling horns and Sample's all-over-the-keyboard chord voicings give the wide base for the melody. It's a subtle but addictive track with lots of compelling tonal colors -- and fine breakbeats by Hooper. Two other selections are gorgeous and very innovative readings of pop tunes: the version the Crusaders did of Tony Joe White's "Rainy Night in Georgia" is rumored to have brought tears to the songwriter's eyes when he heard it. Sample plays both Rhodes and electric harpsichord on the tune, and Freddy Robinson's whispering blues fills turn a Southern soul number into a textbook exercise in arrangement and melodic improvisation. "Golden Slumbers" by Lennon and McCartney functions with the melody side in the chart from the very beginning, but the harmonic engagement of Henderson and Felder brings the mournful, sleepy intro some real melancholy as Sample, Adams, and Robinson color the entire center with quiet movement and shading before Hooper's drums kick it into gear and still it remains a ballad of stirring soul. Just before the recording ends, there's a wildly different and uptempo arrangement of "Hard Times," which became the group's soul theme on subsequent studio records and on the wonderful live LP Scratch. This one feels more defiant, more resilient, where the latter versions are all longer and dig deeper into the slow soul and blues bags. It's easy to love them all, but this is such a contrast to the others that it's worth noting. The set closes with another group standard: Felder's beautiful, midtempo shuffle "Way Back Home," that offers the same punch that its subsequent studio and live recordings does. It's pure soul-jazz and the evidence of the great experience this already seasoned unit has in allowing everyone to shine simultaneously in the most minimal of arrangements. Despite the fact that many serious jazzheads see this as the beginning of the creative end for the Crusaders, they are just plain wrong. This is the start of a new beginning, one that would roll on through most of the '70s and bring the group its greatest commercial and radio successes and makes them such an excellent source of inspiration and samples for hip-hop and dance music producers for another couple of generations. This is an absolute classic. [ The Crusaders '70s music brought such joy to so many people, it's a wonder this album was not available on CD in America until the 21st century. Verve reissued it as part of their excellent Originals series.]

Donlad Byrd Street Lady BL


''Street Lady''

Notes:

Recording Date: June 13, 14 & 15, 1973.
Recorded at Sound Factory, Hollywood, California.
Mastered at Mastering Lab, Hollywood, California.
Format: Vinyl, LP, Album, Gatefold Sleeve
Country: US
Released: 1973

Reviews:

Not so much a fusion album as an attempt at mainstream soul and R&B, Street Lady plays like the soundtrack to a forgotten blaxploitation film. Producer/arranger/composer Larry Mizell conceived Street Lady as a concept album to a spirited, independent prostitute, and while the hooker with a heart of gold concept is a little trite, the music uncannily evokes an urban landscape circa the early ’70s. Borrowing heavily from Curtis Mayfield, Isaac Hayes, and Sly Stone, Donald Byrd and Mizell have created an album that is overflowing with wah-wah guitars, stuttering electric pianos, percolating percussion, soaring flutes, and charmingly anemic, tuneless vocals. It’s certainly not jazz, or even fusion, but it isn’t really funk or R&B, either — the rhythms aren’t elastic enough, and all of the six songs are simply jazzy vamps without clear hooks. But the appeal of Street Lady is how its polished neo-funk and pseudo-fusion sound uncannily like a jive movie or television soundtrack from the early ’70s — you can picture the Street Lady, decked out in polyester, cruising the streets surrounded by pimps with wide-brimmed hats and platform shoes. And while that may not be ideal for jazz purists, it’s perfect for kitsch and funk fanatics.
Stephen Thomas Erlewine (All Music Guide)

A landmark album by Donald Byrd – the first one where he really started to click with jazz-funk producer Larry Mizell! Mizell and Byrd had worked together previously on the Black Byrd album – a soaring bit of futuristic jazz funk that took Byrd's career to a whole new level – but this album's the one where they really began to make the formula cook, blending together tight funky rhythms, spacey keyboards, soulful vocals, and some of Donald's best solo work of the 70s! The whole thing's a masterpiece, and all tracks sparkle – including "Lansana's Priestess", "Witch Hunt", and "Street Lady", one of the funkiest tracks ever on Blue Note. A haunting record with a beautiful spacey groove, and one of the best-ever albums on Blue Note!

''Sister Love''

Street Lady seems to be laid out like a concept album, a tribute of sorts to the street walker, the lady of the night. As a whole, it definitely is on par with many OST’s of the early 70′s (even though it isn’t an OST), and could easily fit in with those early 70′s police or detective shows. You know the ones, where the detective is under cover like Serpico, jumping out of a garbage can waving his pistol at the perp, eventually pinning him down on the corner while ladies working the corner giggle. It’s almost as if Larry Mizell said to Donald Byrd: “We need to get a record moving like Curtis or Isaac, or maybe even Sly at some point, you dig?” The addition of the funky wah wah guitars, synth like keyboard sounds (played by Fred Perren on Arp), and a pounding back beat go from R & B to Funk to Fusion to Jazz, but never really stop on one genre. This keeps the listener’s attention, because before you know it, that Jazz beat has gone into some synthesizer groove with spacey vocals. It’s definitely a ghetto anthem of sorts overall, crafted around ladies walking their beat. Perfect listening for a Sunday morning on your stoop, coffee in hand, just chillin’. A superb output from Byrd and the Mizells.

Review:
Don Thompson's only known LP on Brunswick is a rather unique funky ode to love and booty-shaking, with a sense of the beat that's totally compelling. Don's sound is rich and full, with fuzzy keyboards and clean drums, horn breaks so funky that they have to be heard. His raw masculine voice does the rest on this essential LP of late 1970s funky soul. Most noteworthy are the joyful floorfillers 'Hang Loose' and the title track, as well as the great 'Please Don't Make Yourself At Home'.

Rock With You - Jean Claude Gavri Re Edit


''This time i have a nice old MJ re rub for you.
Unlike most of my edits this one has that "loop" vibe to it. To spice it up, I created a pretty similar sound to the leading synth that's on MJ's original (with my JUNO 106), and played a little jazzy solo on top of the groove from the break to the outro.
Free WAV download. Njoy.''
