Ever wondered what Tom Scott's LA Express, the masterful LA session band he played with in the 70s and sometime backing band to Joni Mitchell, would have sounded like if they got seriously funky? Well, wonder no more because this obscure soundtrack 45 will really hit the spot. Originally scheduled for an LP release, the full LP got canned when the second Fritz The Cat movie bombed, but luckily this 45 was released in limited quantities. It's a cracker - wicked mid 70s jazz-funk, super tight and with a monstrous funky vocal. Killer horn and rhythm section work means that this 45 is hot enough to melt your turntable. Absolutely brilliant.
And luckily for us comet01 over at My Jazz World decided to share this with the rest of us so we can enjoy it. Ain't life sweet?
