Reggie Andrews and The Fellowship - Mystic Beauty LP

Because I have been loading you guys up with sound clips, singles, and partial albums I feel it necessary to share a couple full length, high quality rips of great albums for your enjoyment. This was available on the net for a little while from a record store in New York but at some point it disappeared and now the only place I can find it is some website 'for trade' so I felt it only right to dispel that nonsense and share this terrific album by Reggie Andrews. I wish I had his other LP, the Locke Saints Band from Fremont High School, because it is harder to find and more interesting, but this is better musicianship as it is not a high school doing the work. Pretty laid back afro-cuban influenced spiritual jazz with a real nice groove to it. Rough around the edges at some points but that kinda adds to the flavor. Neither Reggie album is reissued yet, seems like an obvious thing to do as I'm sure he has a ton of unreleased tracks in addition to these two lps. Not sure when it was recorded, privately pressed on HME, from Los Angeles. "n recent years, Reggie Andrews has taught, mentored, and/or produced many talented musicians including Patrice Rushen, Terrace Martin, Ndugu Chancler, and the Dazz Band.

Get mystical y'all.
