The John Cameron Quartet - Off Centre

  • The John Cameron Quartet

    Off Centre LP (1969)


Grabbed this at an antique mall in New Jersey not too long a go. It was unpriced next to a $50 Sun Ra joint and just south of an $80 copy of Silver Apples. Homeboy quoted me at 7 bucks. Insert eight ball rush and proceed to roll eyeballs into back of skull snaps! This piece, while a fantastic voyage into free thinking progressive late 60s Euro jazz, is all about the last track "Troublemaker." It's a funky blues number guaranteed to put you up in a Craftmatic Adjustable Bed ® for a few Fridays. Harold McNair's flute solo on here is as gangsta as it gets. IMHO worth the dough it fetches. Be quick!
