George Braith: Musart. CD

A completely unique album from a completely unique saxophonist!  George Braith got his start at Blue Note in a Roland Kirk sort of style, but this criminally neglected 1967 session for Prestige is very different altogether. It’s a unique blend of reeds, percussion, and some sweet electric touches— sometimes augmented by voices—with a sound that's dark and complex, almost in a Cadet Records mode.  Pat Thomas’ notes explore this multifaceted recording.

Songs:

1.  Del’s Theme

2.  Laura

3.  Our Blessings

4.  Splashes of Love

5.  Musart

6.  Embraceable You

7.  Evelyn Anita
