Gary Saracho ‎"En Medio" 1973

Impulse Records released more groovy records than a label can dream of from the mid 60s to the mid 70s. Gary Saracho's En Medio from 1973 is one the company's most hidden gems I guess. Saracho played the piano, Jeffey Bahir Hassan did the drums, Carmelo Garcia and Owen Marshall (and oboe) the percussion, Patience Higgins the saxophone, Marvin Palatt the violin, and Jamie Herndon the guitar. The music is som kind of deep and spiritual soul-jazz with latin vibes, funk, improvisation and a sound very similar to the groovy Strate-East label. Sadly there has never been a reissue of this masterpiece. Very groovy!
