Music Millennium

Vinyl LP pressing. Long out of print and never reissued in the U.S. on vinyl since it's original release in 1970, Afro-Disiac just might be the musical panacea you've been looking for. Features the smoldering, deep-pocket Purdie showcase, "Sweetheart." Charles Kynard was an American soul jazz/acid jazz organist born in St. Louis, Missouri. Kynard first played piano then switched to organ and led a trio in Kansas City including Tex Johnson (flute, sax) and Leroy Anderson (drums). In 1963, he settled to Los Angeles and his band featured guitarists Cal Green and Ray Crawford, drummer Johnny Kirkwood. Richie Unterberger of online reviews said, "On this 1970 session, Kynard was backed by a first-rate quartet of musicians that often appeared on Prestige soul-jazz dates of the early 1970s... Kynard's one of the more understated soul-jazz organists of the era, and shares space pretty generously with the other musicians on these basic, funky vamps".
