And Space Spies (Limited Edition)
Warning: Last items in stock!
Noel McGhie is an accomplished jazz drummer who has played with Gil Evans amongst others, and back in 1975 he recorded what many consider his grand opus. McGhie's Space Spies were Georges-Edouard Nouel, Itaru Oki, Joao Jorge and Louis Xavier, and between them they whipped up a heady brew of soul jazz and funk on this sizzling record. McGhie's drums are instructive, and they constantly jut out in the mix and he leans right back to the edge of the groove. The rest of the players are no joke though, and the whole album builds up to a beautiful crescendo on 'Mademoiselle Tuloch', a masterclass in loosely jamming out while holding the groove down hard.
