Descrizione prodotto

Wilbert Longmire is a guitarist discovered by George Benson and introduced to Bob James to launch his Tappan Zee label through CBS. Like Benson, Wilbert Longmire was a master of the fusion jazz style who could also sing and was prolific in the jazz, funk and soul genres for the 3 albums he made with the label. Sunny Side Up was the debut album and a massive hit for all concerned. It contains the jazz funk classic Black Is The Color , also a hit record when first issued in 1978. The album also includes a much celebrated version of the Bill Withers smash Lovely Day while a full cast of musicians on this album includes David Sanborn, Richard Tee, Harvey Mason, Eddie Daniels, Randy Brecker and Eric Gale. Album to be released simultaneously with two further Wilbert Longmire albums (on one CD) Champagne and With All My Love --Questo testo si riferisce a un'edizione fuori stampa o non disponibile di questo titolo.

I fist heard this album back in the 70's and enjoyed it very much. "Black is the color" is the best song in this group of five. however all of them are of high quality.

With backups like Bob James, Richard Tee, Eric Gale and Patti Austin this album is a clear modern jazz winner.

Di P.J. Le Faucheur - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

Wilbert Longmire did do a couple of other l.ps back in the mid/late '70s. One was called "Champagne" (1978) and the other was "Revolution" .Both were aided by Bob James.I recall buying all three back in the '70s . But i have to say in all fairness out of the three this record was the best. Wilbert was one of the first to follow the trend set by George Benson and at one point it was hard to tell them apart. The clear semi-acoustic guitar tone was unheard of in 1976....everyone was using effect pedals,Lee Ritenour, Larry Carlton, Dennis Budimir,Wah Wah Watson, O'Donal Levy and even Eric Gale to some extent. Here Will Longmire creates a wonderful groove. The famous single "Black Is The Colour" became a hit on the dance floor in 1976/77 and is now very much a 'rare groove' collectors item. The beautiful version of Bill Withers "Lovely Day" must've made George Benson feel like he missed out on covering it. My favourite track personally is called "Good Morning" and is just too beautiful for words.

This was a shining example of the wonderful music produced on Bob James's legendary "Tappanzee" label. This WAS the sound of 1976 jazz fusion.

If you love the contemporary sound of artists like Norman Brown, George Benson, Russ Freeman, Ronny Jordan and Craig Chiquito, you'll love this release. Longmire has a smooth passion filled sound reminiscent of Benson's Breezin album. Think of Bob James' Touchdown album and you can easily fit Longmire in that vain. The clean production value alone makes listening to this release a must and the vocal track "Love, Won't you try to find us" is just exemplary. This track has everything. Beautiful arrangements (Rhythm and Strings), good singing without too much "overkill" and even a nice little "giddy-up" guitar solo and enterplay with drummer Harvey Mason of recent Fourplay acclaim. I think this release is a must for smooth jazz guitar lovers everywhere. By the way, every day should begin like the track "Good Morning" (my favorite) does.
Enjoy!

WILBERT LONGMIRE IS EXCEPTIONAL AS A GUITARIST BACK IN THE DAY HE WAS CONSIDERED ANOTHER WES MONGOMERY. AS A MATTER OF FACT HE AND WES MONGOMERY WERE FRIENDS. ALSO HE AND GEORGE BOTH HAD THE PLEASURE OF PLAYING WITH THE MUITI JAZZ MUSICIAN GRAND ORGANIST/PIANIST MR. JACK MCDUFF IN FACT HE ONCE COMMENTED THAT WHEN HE SAW WILBERT AT A CONCERT HE WAS DOING HE KNEW HE HAD TO BE GOOD BECAUSE HE[WILBERT]GUITAR CASE WAS SO BANGED UP THAT MEANT HE WAS GETTING A LOT OF WORK. SO IN OTHER WORDS THAT MEANT HE WAS VERY GOOD EVEN IN GEORGE BENSON'S EYES?. UFF
