New - Brown, James - Soul On Top - LP
Transferred from Analog Tapes and Remastered on 180g Vinyl LP as Part of the Verve By Request Series
In the liner notes to this grooving 1969 album, featuring a big band led by drummer Louis Bellson and arranged by Impulse! star Oliver Nelson, the Godfather of Soul explains that he is a "jazz man at heart." Brown's soul consigliere, saxophonist Maceo Parker, helps make this a swinging, spirited and satisfying set of standards and JB hits. Verve By Request Series features transfers from analog tapes, remastered on 180-gram vinyl, and pressed at Third Man in Detroit.
