The Nite-Liters "Instrumental Directions" 1970 US Jazz Funk

The Nite-Liters  "Instrumental Directions" 1970 US Jazz Funk
“Harvey Fuqua and Tony Churchill formed the Nite-Liters in 1963 in Louisville. When the band subsequently expanded to 17 members, with a pair of vocal groups and a instrumental ensemble, they were renamed New Birth, Inc. Churchill, Austin Lander, James Baker, Robert Jackson, Leroy Taylor, and Robin Russell were the original bandmembers. Ben Boxtel, Roger Voice, and James Hall were later recruits. They had two mild instrumental hits for RCA in 1971 and 1972, with "K-Jee” making the R&B Top 20..
Cold, hard, and funky! This might be the greatest album ever by this legendary 70s funk band – and it’s got a killer sound that has the tightness of the JBs, the rawness of the early Meters, and the frenzy of a rare funky 45! Includes the incredible “Afro Strut” – worth the price of the record alone, as it’s got this screaming sax riff that’s completely insane! Other nice ones include covers of “Shaft” and “Them Changes”, plus “Brand X”, “Baker’s Instant”, and “Respect To The Other Man”..
