Mad About Records present a reissue of Reggie Andrews and The Fellowship's Mystic Beauty, originally released in 1969.

A mythical album on many jazz collector's want-lists, this LP was released in California on the extremely limited and sought-after private press label HME. It has deep Latin, Afro / Cuban influences, and consists primarily of acoustic jazz pieces.

Influences also range from the cerebral to the soulful, but it defies any one-dimensional tag like "spiritual jazz" or "soul-jazz" or "jazz-funk." Heralding from L.A. and led by pianist Reggie Andrews, it doesn't sound particularly "west coast". It's a beautiful session all around, really something special and profound.
