Pretty Purdie Soul Is... Pretty Purdie (1972)

    Flying Dutchman
    • Pretty Purdie – what's going on
    • 1. what's going on
    • 2. ain't no sunshine
    • 3. don't go
    • 4. good livin' (good lovin')
    • 5. day dreaming
    • 6. song for aretha
    • 7. put it where you want it
    • 8. heavy soul slinger

    A wild one! After the straight hard funk of some of his earlier recordings as a leader, Bernard "Pretty" Purdie breaks out here in a compelling album of soul jazz tracks done in a number of styles. The approach is sort of big studio funk with some cuts that have a harder sound.

    Horace Ott arranges, conducts, and plays electric piano, and Richard Tee plays organ on a number of cuts and Purdie's drums are supertight, superfunky as ever!
