Seawind

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Seawind - Window Of A Child Window Of A Child
Jazz New - LP 5007 CTI
Sealed 1977 Laminated Gatefold Original. “If Seawind's Self-Titled Debut Album Is Its Most Essential Release, The Band's Excellent Follow-Up, Window Of A Child, Runs A Close Second. It Would Have Been Easy For The Hawaiian Combo To Compromise Its Creativity -- Instead Of Being So Eclectic And Unpredictable, It Could Have Focused On One Style Of Music Exclusively. But Thankfully, Seawind Sticks To Its Guns On This LP, Embracing Everything From Funk And Soul To Instrumental Jazz Fusion. Singer Pauline Wilson Has Many Inspired Moments; She Is As Convincing On Funk Gems ("Angel Of Mercy," "Do Listen To") As She Is On More Jazz-Minded Tracks Like The Title Song And "Wings Of Love," Which Wouldn't Have Been Out Of Place On A Return To Forever Album -- Larry Williams' Keyboard Solo Certainly Shows An Awareness Of Chick Corea. Wilson Doesn't Sing On All The Tracks; "Campanas De Invierno" Is A Calm, Peaceful Jazz Fusion Instrumental That Gives The Horn Players (Including Saxman Kim Hutchcroft And Trumpeter/Flugelhornist Jerry Hey) A Chance To Stretch Out. Like 1976's Seawind, This Album Fared Well On Quiet Storm Formats, Although It Didn't Contain Any Major R&B Or Pop Hits. But Regardless Of How It Performed Commercially, Window Of A Child Is A Consistently Rewarding Sophomore Album.” Alex Henderson, AMG.... more details

Jazz New - LP SP 4824 A&M
Sealed 1980 Original With Custom Song Hyper Sticker On Shrink. Small Saw Notch. “Imagine This: A Hawaiian Band That Could Play Gritty, Tower Of Power-Influenced Funk One Minute And Instrumental Jazz Fusion The Next, And Often Expressed A Christian Viewpoint. Seawind Really Did Fit That Description, And While Such Uniqueness Would Terrify A Lot Of Marketing People, It Earned The Hawaiian Outfit A Small But Loyal Cult Following. Seawind Wasn't Nearly As Big As It Deserved To Be, But Those Who Were Hip To The Band Really Swore By It. Produced By Drummer Harvey Wilson In 1976, Seawind Is A Superb, Highly Imaginative Debut That Thrives On Diversity. Singer Pauline Wilson Excels On Sweaty Funk Gems Like "Make Up Your Mind," "We Got A Way," And "You Gotta Be Willing To Lose," And She Is Equally Expressive On More Jazz-Oriented Offerings Such As "The Devil Is A Liar" And "He Loves You" (Both Of Which Underscore Her Christian Beliefs). Meanwhile, Wilson Doesn't Do Any Singing At All On The Jazz Fusion Instrumentals "Roadways" And "Praise." Although Seawind Fared Well On Quiet Storm Formats, Black Radio Tended To Shy Away From The Album. And At The Same Time, Seawind Didn't Appeal To Jazz Purists. But Even If Seawind Was, From A Commercial Standpoint, Too Eclectic For Its Own Good, This LP Never Sounds Unfocused -- The Band Knew Exactly What It Was Doing In 1976. All Of Seawind's Albums Are Worth Owning, But This One Is Arguably Its Most Essential.” Alex Henderson, AMG.... more details
