Bobbi Humphrey: Fancy Dancer (Blue Note Classic Vinyl Series) LP
Blue Note, 1975
Flautist Bobbi Humphrey debuted on Blue Note in 1971 and released a run of six creative and highly enjoyable albums on the label capped by “Fancy Dancer” in 1975, the flautist’s third collaboration with forward-looking producer Larry Mizell. It proved to be a winning combination once again with Humphrey’s alluring flute dancing through a set that featured standout Mizell compositions like “Uno Esta,” “You Make Me Feel So Good,” and “Please Set Me At Ease.” With its synth bass lines, harp (courtesy of Dorothy Ashby) and funky rhythm section, this is an album at home on the dance floor and it’s been sampled by, amongst others, Madlib and Wiz Khalifa.
This Blue Note Classic Vinyl Edition is all-analog, mastered by Kevin Gray from the original master tapes, and pressed on 180g vinyl at Optimal.
