Rudolph Johnson - Spring Rain LPReal Gone Music / Black Jazz Records
Regular price $23.98
Vinyl LP pressing. With his sound and spirituality, this saxophonist from Ohio earned Coltrane comparisons-but Rudolph mixes bebop, soul-jazz and groovy funk in his own way on this 1971 LP, his first Black Jazz Records release. Follow his explorations of the upper registers and overtones of his tenor sax as he plays "Sylvia Ann," "Fonda," "Diswa," "Spring Rain" and more. His band mates here had played with everyone from Marvin Gaye to Pharoah Sanders to Bob Dylan; this is stellar, and this is a first-time vinyl reissue!
