Hand picked records important to the history of Soul Strut.
Bill Plummer is best known for his session work as an upright acoustic bass player jamming with the likes of Miles Davis, The Rolling Stones ( Exile on Main Street), Nancy Wilson, etc. In 1968 he released this oddball, groovy far eastern jazz record on the famed Impulse! label. Here Plummer explores the electric sitar as well as holding it down on double bass. Groove oriented Fender bass magician Carole Kaye joins the cast as well as Mr. Honeysuckle Breeze, Tom Scott, as well. Highlights include the acid soaked spoken word experience "Journey to the East", the Raga take on Burt Bacharach's "The Look of Love", and the sitar droned jazz groover "Lady Friend" which showcases the unique talents of Lynn Blessing on vibraphone. Far out, man!
