Victor Feldman Quartet- Rockavibabe
(DJM (UK) Stereo LP DJM 22058, released in UK in 1977; recorded 1974. (originally issued by Choice Records (USA) as "Your Smile", released in 1974)
Victor Feldman was at the height of his success in his role as a Hollywood session stalwart, but he still liked to play jazz and contemporary fusion, as he does here on piano, vibes and percussion, with a stellar cast, including Tom Scott, flutes and tenor sax, Chuck Domanico, bass, and John Guerin, drums. Incidentally, Vic, John and Tom are all veterans of the famous "L. A. Express" band. Six of the eight tracks are either composed or co-composed by Victor ("Rockavibabe", "Your Smile", "Brazilian Fire", "Minor Catastrophe", "Crazy Chicken" and, with Miles Davis, "Seven Steps To Heaven") while the other two are"Quietly", written by Brazilians Luis Eca and Chana Dorio, and the "I Love Lucy Theme" by E. Daniel and H. Adamson.This session was recorded 'live' at a Los Angeles club, unnamed. This album represents the fusion / contemporary side of Victor Feldman.
