A killer little set from funky organist Lyman Woodard an old bandmate of Dennis Coffey, and one of the standout stalwarts of the 70s Detroit jazz funk scene! The set features Lyman working in a live setting grooving out over some mighty long tracks that blend jazz and soul together, in a style that's a bit like some of the best work on the Groove Merchant label from the mid 70s. Lyman himself plays organ on the set, and the group's a largeish one with some ensemble vocals on a few cuts, but a mostly instrumental sound overall. And if you're worried about the later date of the set, don't be as Lyman cuts a nice lean groove into the whole set coming up with a soulful sound that's expanded more than a smaller combo record, yet which also isn't too slick or overproduced! Marcus Belgrave plays trumpet on one track.
Recorded live in 1979 at Cobb's Corner in Detroit, Mich. LP contains 5 extended smokers, including the extremely funky and quite jazzy "Disco Tease". All-star Detroit jazz band includes Lyman Woodard on the Hammond B3, Marcus Belgrave, Leonard King, Allan Barnes and on guitar Robert Lowe.
