2018 Japanese reissue
Gene Harris rwent into the ‘70s with full on electronic funkiness like Herbie Hancok and others.
Astrsignal starts with a medley of tunes - “Prelude”, then moves through a hypnotic tribute to summer (“Summer (the First Time)”, Rebato Summer” and “I Remember Summer”), then once your all tripped out it kicks into the most incredible version of “Don’t Call Me Nigger Whitey” followed by the rare-groove gem “Losalamitoslatinfunklovesong”. Lastly you get the only straight jazz tune on side one (of the LP), the solo piano piece “My Roots”. Side two is a little more subdued, but still no less amazing. You get the Harvey Mason composed/arranged “Higga-Boom” with its amazing driving groove. This album really is a jazz-funk/fusion masterpiece.
with Harvey Mason, Chuck Rainey, Ernie Watts, David T Walker and others
