Jackson, Melvin

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Jackson, Melvin - Funky Skull Funky Skull
Jazz Used - LP LS 86071 Limelight
Rare 1969 Stereo Original Still In Shrink Wrap. Small Cut Out Hole. Appears Unplayed. “Bassist Melvin Jackson Has Exactly One Album In His Catalog As A Leader (He Spent Most Of His Time Playing With Eddie Harris). But Man, That's All He Needed. Pumping His Upright Through A Maestro G-2 Filter Box, A Boomerang, An Echoplex, And An Am Peg Amp, He Made That Thing Sound Like Something From Outer Space While Keeping It Firmly In The Groove Of The Corner Bar On Front Street. Gimmicky? That's What They Once Said About Roland Kirk Playing Multiple Horns At Once, Too. As For The Naysayers Who Think Of This As A Novelty, Consider The Heavies In His Band: Roscoe Mitchell, Leo Smith, Lester Bowie, Phil Upchurch, Pete Cosey, Morris Jennings, Jodie Christian, Billy Hart, Byron Bowie, Steve Galloway, And A Whole Lot Of Others. All Of These Cats Were Heavyweights In Their Own Right. What Does Funky Skull Sound Like? Psychedelic, Funky Soul-Jazz And A Whole Lot More. Jackson Bowed His Bass A Well As Plucked It Depending On What The Tune Needed. Funky Skull Is A One Of A Kind Listening Experience. It's Fun, Wildly Inventive, Freewheeling And Complex All At The Same Time. This Is One Of Those Records That One Has To Hear To Believe, And Once Heard, Has To Have As A Permanent Part In Your Collection.” Thom Juerk, All Music Guide... more details
