Jimmy Owens "No Escaping It" 1970

This is New Yorker Jimmy Owens first LP, released in 1970 with musicians like Kenny Barron, Billy Cobham, Billy Harper and Sam Brown. The music is one of the finest examples of really groovy soul-jazz from this era. You get excellent moody soul-jazz with a bunch of funky parts. Billy Harper made some real cool work on flute and tenor. Groovy!
