Tapscott + Winds (Limited Edition)
Warning: Last items in stock!
A never-issued album from the great Horace Tapscott – and one that shows a whole new side of his talents!
The group is a trio, but very different than some of Tapscott's other groups – as it features his piano alongside the alto of Kafi Roberts and flute of Aubrey Hart – a lineup that makes for a much more introspective vibe than some of Tapscott's more freewheeling small group recordings!
The set begins with the side-long "Golden Pearl" – a tune that has this really hypnotic, almost meditative vibe – Tapscott sometimes hanging back a bit more and letting the reeds stand upfront – an approach that's reversed on the flipside, which features a great long take on the Clifford Jordan tune "Spellbound" – one that really lets Tapscott remind us what an inventive modernist he can be!
Recorded at Paramount Studios, October 17, 1983
