Following hard on the heels of BBE delving into the archives of Detroit’s Strata Records and the in-demand exploration of J-Jazz, comes another crate digger’s delight- Ralph Thomas’ ‘Eastern Standard Time’, which dropped the USA back in in 1980, on the obscure Zebra Jazz imprint. A true spiritual jazz gem reissued via BBE - recommended!
