Roy Porter - Jessica (1974)
Funk Lp recorded by drummer Roy Porter in 1974 for Vistone label. Includes the famous "Jessica" with a both latin and funk flavour. Very groovy brass section playing various styles.
Here I just propose to you in streaming format the side A of this album since side B of my Lp has many scratches that I could not remove and is not in a very clean state. Anyway, the second side is not the best of the album in my opinion but ok that's no excuse ;)
If someone has a full recording of this Lp in a good state then it would be appreciated.
Roy Porter: drums - Jimmy Holloway, Leslie Hargrove: guitar - Tollie Moore: electric piano - Bob Davis: irgan - Charles Jones: Fender bass - Oscar Dye: congas - Hense Powell, James Smith: trumpet, flugelhorn - Lester Robertson: trombone - Jack H. Fulks: tenor sax, flute - Sone' Campbell: tenor sax
