The late '60s were an explosive time in America. Flower power was blooming, civil rights were in full swing, and while American soldiers were fighting in Vietnam, American musicians were creating several brands of rebellious music back home. One such musician, a trombonist/conga player from Pontiac, Michigan, had grown weary of his nation's volatile political climate. In the wake of Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination, Melvyn Price set sail for Sweden where he immediately began gigging with Scandinavia's jet-set jazz musicians. In 1974, after a pair of primarily percussive albums intended to aid dance instruction, Price composed and recorded his soul-jazz masterpiece, 'Rhythm And Blues', released on his own Mel-Dor label. The music was simple, yet inspiring, pairing Sweden's disciplined session players with imported Latin American percussionists. 'Rhythm And Blues' was never widely distributed abroad, and has, in recent years, fetched top dollar at auction. This reissue is the fourth release by Wax Poetics Records, who, like their sister publication, is quickly becoming the authority on soul music's unsung heroes. This unique album, available on CD and 180-gram vinyl, includes all of the original artwork, as well as in-depth liner notes and rare photos exclusive to this release.
