This release presentes the Jazz Crusaders’ complete live LP At the Lighthouse (Pacific Jazz ST-57). Employing a two-horn front line (trombone and tenor saxophone), the group’s sound was rooted in hard bop, with an emphasis on R&B and soul. They would shorten their name to “The Crusaders” in 1971, when they decided to adopt a jazzfunk style. This set is unique among the group’s recordings because of the presence of bassist Victor Gaskin, who replaced The Crusaders’ first bassist, Jimmy Bond. Two songs from the same engagement not present on the original LP (“Penny Blue” and “Boopie”), as well as three tracks from a later session also featuring Gaskin have been added here as a bonus.
Live at the Lighthouse, Hermosa Beach, California, August 5, 1962.
