Billy Mitchell - De Lawd's Blues (1980) MP3 CBR 320 kbps | Tracks: 5 | 00:48:44 | 87.5 Mb Style: Hard Bop | Label: Xanadu Records
"A beautiful album of subtle, soulful jazz, recorded with the great Benny Bailey on trumpet, & featuring the amazing (& amazingly underrated) tenor of Billy Mitchell. The writing on here's excellent, & the tracks are long, me&ering, & beautiful (& a little bit like Bailey's European recordings, if you know them). The monster highlight is "Perpetual Stroll", which has great, catchy changes, & some wonderful thoughtful solos. Other tracks include "B&B", "Prompt", & "De Lawd's Blues"."
