Wayne Henderson's Pleasure's Accept No Substitutes (Fantasy Records, 1976)

pleasure_foto_flyer
PLEASURE_20110708
Pleasure

The original eight members of Pleasure were:
Marlon McClain: Electric and acoustic guitar and background vocals.
Sherman Davis: Lead and background vocals.
Bruce Carter: Drums.
Donald Hepburn: Keyboards and background vocals.
Nathaniel Phillips: Electric bass and background vocals.
Bruce Smith: Percussion and background vocals.
Dennis Springer: Soprano and tenor sax.
Dan Brewster: Trombone and background vocals.
They were all born in Portland, Oregon, and had known each other since they were kids. The band had been playing together since early 1972 and were discovered at a club in Portland by Wayne Henderson (Trombonist, writer and producer of Crusaders, The) who brought them to Fantasy Records in 1974. This was the beginning of a six year relationship with the label and a four year relationship with Wayne Henderson who, through his own production company "At Home Productions", was the band's producer and mentor.
Pleasure were a very versatile band. Their music can best be described as a fusion of jazz and rock, soul, funk and R&B. Very distinctive, funky and definitely danceable.
The group disbanded in the early 1980's.

''Let's Dance''

Reviews:
Back in the '70s, AOR radio and soul radio were two very different formats -- and not just because one played rock and the other played R&B. "AOR" stood for album-oriented rock, which was an accurate name because that format was, in fact, album-oriented; at AOR, album tracks that were never released as singles could be candidates for heavy rotation. Soul radio, however, was much more singles-oriented -- an established soul radio DJ could play some album tracks here and there, but singles were the primary focus. And that wasn't good news for Pleasure, who were more of an album act than a singles act. Pleasure recorded great albums, but for the most part, they didn't have the type of singles that drove program directors wild. Accept No Substitutes, Pleasure's second album, is a perfect example of a record that is excellent but, as a rule, didn't blow program directors away. The funk gem "Let's Dance" had the makings of a radio hit, although radio didn't really take notice until the West Street Mob covered it in 1981. At any rate, Pleasure's relatively small group of hardcore fans loved this record. They loved the jazz-tinged funk of "Pleasure for Your Pleasure" and "I'm Mad"; they loved the mellow, laid-back quiet storm outlook of "The Love of My Life." Accept No Substitutes did contain one charting single: the hypnotic "Ghettoes of the Mind," which wasn't a huge smash but did become a minor hit and was a favorite at Pleasure's live gigs. Had '70s soul radio been as album-minded a medium as AOR radio, this Wayne Henderson-produced LP might have enjoyed heavy rotation. But in a medium that worshipped singles, Accept No Substitutes was fighting an uphill battle. Regardless, most Pleasure fans think of this LP as a highly respectable sophomore outing.
By Alex Henderson (AMG)

Quite possibly the funkiest album ever from Pleasure – and that's saying a heck of a lot! The album grooves from the very first note – and moves through some of the group's tightest, most rock-solid numbers – all of which use their trademark blend of funky and soul, but which somehow seem to hit even more perfect territory than previous albums! And yes, those records are great, but usually have a few standout cuts – while this one works together perfectly – leading us in right away, then holding us rapt through some wonderful cuts that never let up – massive energy that few other funky combos could match, produced to perfection by the legendary Wayne Henderson. Titles include the wicked sample cut "I'm Mad", the bouncy "Pleasure For Your Pleasure", the spacey "Ghettos Of The Mind", the bumping "Let's Dance", and the tracks "Jammin With Pleasure", "Theme For The Moonchild", "2 For 1", "We Have So Much", and "The Love Of My Life".

''I'm Mad''


''Pleasure For Your Pleasure''

Biography by Alex Henderson (AMG):
Best known for its 1979 hit "Glide," Pleasure was a risk-taking, horn driven band that often brought jazz overtones to its funk/soul foundation. Pleasure, which shouldn't be confused with the '90s rock band Pleasure, wasn't huge but enjoyed a small cult following. The band was formed in Portland, OR, in 1972, when guitarist Marlon "The Magician" McClain (born August 8, 1955), lead singer Sherman Davis (born March 15, 1952), and keyboardist Donald Hepburn (born June 30, 1950) joined forces with saxophonist Dennis Springer (born July 21, 1949), bassist Nathaniel Phillips (born December 30, 1955), trombonist Dan Brewster and drummer Bruce Carter (born December 28, 1956). Pleasure was a merger of two Portland outfits: Franchise (which included McClain, Phillips, and Carter) and the Soul Masters (which was Hepburn's band and also included Springer, Smith, and Davis). The Oregon residents got a lucky break when trombonist Wayne Henderson, a founding member of the Jazz Crusaders, saw them performing in a Portland club -- Henderson was impressed with what he heard, and his enthusiasm led to a deal with Fantasy (where he produced four of its six albums) in 1974. Pleasure's debut album, Dust Yourself Off, came out on Fantasy in 1975 and was followed by Accept No Substitutes in 1976 and Joyous in 1977. After Joyous, there were a few personnel changes: Brewster left the band, and Donald Hepburn's younger brother Michael (born May 21, 1953) came on board as a keyboardist/lead singer. Get to the Feeling, Pleasure's fourth album, came out in 1978 and was followed by 1979's Future Now, which contained the hit "Glide." Pleasure's cult following really swore by the band, but it wasn't until "Glide" (which reached number ten on Billboard's R&B singles chart) that the funksters finally scored a Top 10 hit. Trumpeter/flugelhornist Tony Collins (born May 16, 1957) was added to the lineup for Future Now, and Doug Lewis came on board as a lead guitarist for 1980's Special Things, which was Pleasure's sixth and final album. Unfortunately, Pleasure didn't have any more major hits after "Glide," and in 1981, the band broke up.

Review:
Electric funky Chico Hamilton! This one’s an oft-overlooked gem from the end of the 70s – a batch of sweet electric fusion tunes that sounds unlike anything else we can think of by Chico – with a cool and spacey sound that feels more like work coming out of Fantasy Records at the time, or CTI years before, than mainstream jazz on a major label! The album was produced by Wayne Henderson, and has a sweetly soulful quality that’s really great – adding in some backing vocals on a few tracks for a mellow, Henderson-esque soul approach – and going for some more full-on jazz grooving on other numbers. The set features lots of great guitar and keyboard work – still in the exotic rhythm progressions that you’d recognize from Chico’s earlier years, but given a great 70s electric twist! Tracks include “Mysterious Maiden”, “Alekasam”, “Nomad”, “Strut”, and “Magic Fingers”.

''Alekasam''

Biography by Scott Yanow (AMG):
Chico Hamilton, a subtle and creative drummer, will probably always be better known for the series of quintets that he led during 1955-1965 and for his ability as a talent scout than for his fine drumming. Hamilton first played drums while in high school with the many fine young players (including Dexter Gordon, Illinois Jacquet, and Charles Mingus) who were in Los Angeles at the time. He made his recording debut with Slim Gaillard, was house drummer at Billy Berg's, toured with Lionel Hampton, and served in the military (1942-1946). In 1946, Hamilton worked briefly with Jimmy Mundy, Count Basie, and Lester Young (recording with Young). He toured as Lena Horne's drummer (on and off during 1948-1955), and gained recognition for his work with the original Gerry Mulligan piano-less quartet (1952-1953). In 1955, Hamilton put together his first quintet, a chamber jazz group with the reeds of Buddy Collette, guitarist Jim Hall, bassist Carson Smith, and cellist Fred Katz. One of the last important West Coast jazz bands, the Chico Hamilton Quintet was immediately popular and appeared in a memorable sequence in 1958's Jazz on a Summmer's Day and the Hollywood film The Sweet Smell of Success. The personnel changed over the next few years (with Paul Horn and Eric Dolphy heard on reeds, cellist Nate Gersham, guitarists John Pisano and Dennis Budimir, and several bassists passing through the group) but it retained its unusual sound. By 1961, Charles Lloyd was on tenor and flute, Gabor Szabo was the new guitarist, and soon the cello was dropped in favor of trombone (Garnett Brown and later George Bohanon), giving the group an advanced-hard bop style.
In 1966, Chico Hamilton started composing for commercials and the studios and he broke up his quintet. However, he continued leading various groups, playing music that ranged from the avant-garde to erratic fusion and advanced hard bop. Such up-and-coming musicians as Larry Coryell (1966), Steve Potts (1967), Arthur Blythe, Steve Turre (on bass, surprisingly), and Eric Person (who played in Hamilton's '90s group Euphoria) were among the younger players he helped discover. In 1989, Chico Hamilton had a recorded reunion with the original members of his 1955 quintet (with Pisano in Hall's place), and in the 1990s he made a number of records for Soul Note.

Info-Promo: Jean Claude Gavri #3 In the Cocobinwax003 - Strictly Limited Edition 300 copies - 12inch Available July 8th - Promo Snippets

Jean Claude Gavri in cocobinwax003

 
Jean Claude Gavri
#3 In the Cocobinwax003 - Strictly Limited Edition 300 copies
12inch Available July 8th - promo snippets

Cocobinwax Re Edit Series, loaded with 4 monster tracks, release date: 8-7-13, Limited Edition - 300 copies

CATALOGUE #: Cocobinwax003
LABEL: Coco bin
ARTIST: Jean Claude Gavri
TITLE: Cocobinwax003
RELEASE DATE: 08-07-13

TRACKLISTING:
A SIDE
1) The Hangover (JCG Seven Minutes Of Lustiness)
2) I Did You (JCG 70s Rub)
B SIDE
1) All Around The World (JCG Vinyl Touch Up)
2) Mental Chains (JCG Acid Mix)

DESCRIPTION:
#3 In the Cocobinwax Re Edit series – Jean Claude Gavri returns with a 4 track smasher.
As in the previous 2 Coco Bin Wax releases, these are completely reworked tracks, not just chops and effects but some serious production value added. Tracks are ranging from 115-117rpm.
The opening killer track "The Hangover" is a Dirty, Grainy, Percussive Instrumental rub of the "Love Hangover", classic peak time hands in the air disco monster.
"I Did You" is A sleazy play-on-word on "I Dig You" – originally by Demis Roussos. Here as well, the vibe is raw & grainy to fit the sleaze of the original, with loads of percussive layers and a phat bumpy kick.
"All Around The World", originally "I Love You Dancer" by Voyage, is a solid, straight forward touch up of this Euro Disco Rarity. The structure is pretty faithful to the original track, as well as JCG's sound choices. Delicious, proper vocal relief to a proper DJ set.
"Mental Chains" gives a twist to the plot. Originally titled "New Song" – this was the debut hit single for one man band Howard Jones back in 1983. If JCG's  Euphoric instrumental is taking the track to a new level, DJs this is a very powerful weapon you got here, use it wisely.

Cocobinwax003 is limited to 300 copies.

2013
Jean Claude announced "Coco Bin Wax" - his vinyl only label, with the monster debute release - "The Get Down", Followed by "Les Dance", both titles are nearly sold out.
Currently Jean Claude is focusing on both Original productions and Remixes, and touring extensively.
3 more vinyls are currently in the making and should be out in the next couple of months.

!!JUNO DOWNLOAD REVIEWS!!:
On "Luv Hangover"
" Tel Aviv's Jean-Claude Gavri has a rising reputation in the edits world, thanks largely to a string of releases that provide sturdy, floor-friendly reworks of both well-known and relatively obscure jams. The general vibe is sweaty and upbeat, giving the impression that Garvi's primary concern is always the dancefloor. "
On "Pulp Disco 2"
" In the last six months, Tel Aviv-based producer Jean-Claude Gavri has come from relative obscurity to dominate the disco edit download charts. It's not hard to see why; his edits are dubby, percussive and floor-friendly, beefing up the original tracks without resorting to cheap tricks such as filters and super-compressed additional kicks. This second full-length collection of sneaky reworks features plenty of high-grade material,"
On "Nite Dubbin"
" Having made his name via a series of much-played re-edit releases, Jean Claude Gavri makes the move to original production with a sparkling two-tracker. The original version of "Nite Dubbin" begins with two and a half minutes of sturdy disco drums, before dropping into a mesmerizing, hands-in-the-air piano breakdown that seems to last an eternity. By the time the drums come back in, you'll be lost in music ".
On "Edition Limitee"
" Hard-working scalpel fiend Jean-Claude Gavri seems to knock-out heavyweight disco re-edits at a furious rate. Here he presents four more tried-and-tested reworks to tickle the fancy of confirmed disco deviants
On "Sunny Side Up"
" More from prolific scalpel specialist Jean-Claude Gavri, who appears to be attempting to set a record for the most releases in the shortest space of time. We've no complaints though, as his pleasingly faithful re-edits and reworks are rarely less than essential. This latest EP features four more 'floor-friendly rubs.

''A Mellow Mood''

Review:
One of the best of the later People's Choice albums, and one that does a nice job of keeping in touch with their roots as a funk group. Sure, there are a number of so-so disco tracks on here – like "Here We Go Again" and "Jam Jam Jam" – but there's also some nice funky numbers, like "We Got The Rhythm", "Cold Blooded & Downright Funky", and "Opus De Funk". Frankie Brunson's lead vocals come off sounding very nice, as does his groovy work on the keyboards – and Gamble & Huff produced the entire album, with arranging help from Brunson and Dexter Wansel.
© 1996-2013, Dusty Groove America, Inc.


The People's Choice went through its share of personnel changes in the '70s and '80s. When the Philadelphia outfit recorded We Got the Rhythm for TSOP/Philadelphia International in 1976, its lineup included original members Frankie Brunson (lead vocals/keyboards), David Thompson (drums, percussion), and Darnell Jordan (rhythm guitar) as well as more recent additions like Guy Fiske (lead guitar), Roger Andrews (bass), and Donald Ford (keyboards). Despite changes in membership, the People's Choice never had a problem being recognizable; the band was as distinctive on up-tempo disco-funk numbers as it was on romantic soul ballads. But there are no ballads on We Got the Rhythm, which usually takes dead aim at the dance floor. This vinyl LP (which Kenny Gamble & Leon Huff produced at Philly's famous Sigma Sound Studios) wasn't a huge radio hit, although club DJs found infectious tracks like "Jam, Jam, Jam (All Night Long)," "Cold Blooded and Down-Right Funky," and the instrumental "Movin' in All Directions" to be quite useful. The People's Choice detours into jazz-influenced territory on two sleek Leon Huff instrumentals, "Opus-De-Funk" and "A Mellow Mood." Neither are straight-ahead jazz, but they do bring jazz overtones to an R&B foundation. We Got the Rhythm isn't as essential as the People's Choice's previous album, Boogie Down U.S.A., but it's a generally pleasing effort that confirmed fans will enjoy.
