"old" vinyl finds
Not too long ago I put together a nice audio system to play my CDs. I found a Marantz sr8200 receiver and a dv9600 cd player and two sets of Timeframe DCM speakers, one set of 600s and another back set of 350s, and a Klipsh sub. Sounds awesome.
Anyway... I decided that I should get a turn table and get into my record collection and whatever eles I could find. This past weekend I found a collection of some 80s jazz and picked about 6 albums up.
What fun! The first one I played was David Sanborns "As We Speak".
Checking out the album note I find that Omar Hakim plays drums on every song joined by non other than Marcus Miller on Bass! On every song! Marcus wrote 3 of the songs.
This was one of my favorite albums back in the early 80s and I had no idea who these guys were back then.
On a side note...The new Jeff Lorber Fusion CD, Hacienda, come out tomorrow with Jimmy Haslip on Bass. Can't wait!
Also, MM & Omar had a history prior to each becoming "a name" (IIRC, they met/played together at the Fame school in NYC; MM joined Miles, Omar joined Weather Report...Omar tried to get MM when Jaco split...)
FYI: MM is also on a few early Spyro Gyra albums (City Kids, Incognito, etc).
Straphanging by The Brecker Bros. is another good one.
Cool...thanks for the information.
Another act in the same style is Michael Franks and he always had stellar players on his records. Each album had a lineup of musicians who were well known then and now. David Sanborn played on a couple. I just found out Will Lee played bass on a some albums and Marcus Miller and Jimmy Haslip played on some tracks too.
I have a few Michael Franks albums from the 70s and early 80s. They were also great to play when I had a lady over to get romantic.
Here is a cut with David Sanborn.
