    1. It seems the link is dead, any chance there could be a reupload please? Thank you very much!

  2. perhaps in spite of esmond edwards' apparent stupidity about these sessions, great, yah classic, stuff happened! oh reggie johnson of olde, what happened to ye? just listen to him roil with rashied on "rapids," gato cresting over top! Xhilarating? YAH!!! i gather he pooped out by the 70's and then eventually kenny burrell coaxed him into returning to play straight jazz, then he moved to france, where he still plays straight...
    easy to hear what alan says about monster movie soundtracks affecting his music. had a quality of stillness in his sound not unlike his big brother, more fragile and...pallid, but not without charm or swing.
    esmond was so annoyed by his task that he forced reggie and rashied to quit by asking endless takes of a vamp, hence haden and muhammed showing up in the personnel to finish the album...

  6. Thank you! What a rare find! I've been searching for this for ages. The Verve Elite Series was amazing and sorely missed.
