Melvyn Price "Rhythm and Blues" 1974




In the middle of the sixties Melvyn Price packed his congas and trombone in Detroit and moved to Sweden. He met his wife Doris Antonsson and get three sons (all of them are musicians in  Sweden), in 1974 they released this LP by themself (Meldor Records). It's a very groovy, jazzy and funky instrumental album with touches of world music (both african and brazilian). Together with musicians like Björn Alke, Jon Dill, Fredrik Norén, Björn Wolff and Ed Epstein they recorded this album. The album didn't sell well and the LP is today a collector's item (maybe cause of the misleading title? Well, it's full of beautiful rhythm, but there ain't much blues, definitely not Rythm & Bues). The album been reissued by Wax Poetics in 2008. This is Groovy!

Enjoy!
