Wayne Davis - A View From Another Place

Spritual soul, or something like that. I like this record. It manages to be varied while keeping it together, blending a lot of different styles into a whole. I found some youtube clips for your previewing pleasure.

I Like The Things About Me That I Once Despised

Sweet Bird Of Youth

The sound is stripped down for the most part, Wayne on piano, Bernard Purdie on drums and Jerry Jemmott on bass. Richard Tee, Richard Davis, Roberta Flack, Eugene McDaniels and Carrie Cole also participates. If your musical taste is anything like mine you won't want to not hear the 11 minute funk freak-out that is Joel 2:28. 1973, Atlantic Records.
