Weldon Irvine "In Harmony"1974 US Spiritual Soul Jazz Funk


Weldon Irvine  "In Harmony"1974 US ultra rare & excellent  Spiritual  Soul Jazz Funk
full vk



Another killer and a true winner from WELDON, this time he moved to STRATA/EAST from his own label and he left nothing behind for sure. The sound of WELDON’s legendary jazz/funk was ever so present here, if not more! 
At STRATA/EAST he was recording at a semi-major label and therefore he benefited from what the new and more advanced gear did to the overall production (for good and bad). 
The first two tracks “Fat mouth” and “Turkish bath” are two of history’s best regarding this mix between jazz, funk and soul that few mastered like WELDON!  
“Pleasure, pain and me” shows another side (maybe the true) of the genius, the side that put him as one of the best musicians ever if you ask me…..~




Weldon Irvine meets Strata East – and the result is one of the keyboardist’s funkiest albums ever! The set’s more jazz-based than the soul/funk outings Weldon cut for RCA and his own label – with great focus on Weldon’s lines on clavinet and Fender Rhodes – supported by sweet guitar lines and lots of heavy percussion – often a mix of drums and congas, which really sounds great. Pianist Virginia Joe Jones joins the group on a few cuts – but the main star here is definitely Weldon, who sparkles wonderfully on some spiritual keyboard solos…..dusty groove….~



One of his rarest! Including “Fat mouth” & “Turkish Bath” on strata east jazz label …. A Hard to find record with great Music from this underrated Talent of the Black Virtuoso musicians .“Fat Mouth”,“Turkish Bath"and a gorgeous Cover of "What are you doing the rest of your Life”….groove collector…~
