Saturday Morning Music from John Mayall – “Good Time Boogie” – Jazz Blues Fusion!!

Jazz Blues FusionSo the other day I decided to visit an album that I haven’t listened to in a long while, Jazz Blues Fusion from John Mayall.The abum is a live album. The first side is from a concert in Boston on 18 November 1971, and the second side was selected from two concerts at Hunter College, New York, on 3 and 4 December 1971. John released two albums with this jazz fusion bent. On the albums he brought jazz musicians into his band. On this album the musicians were Freddy Robinson on guitar, Blue Mitchell on trumpet, Ron Selico on drums and Clifford Soloman on tenor and alto saxophones. Larry Taylor long-time member of the band provided bass.

I wore this album out in college and throughout the years that followed. Listening to the album brought back a lot of memories, including seeing John perform at the University of Florida in 1973.

Anyway I loved listening to it the other day and I thought that a Saturday morning is a good time for a little “Good Time Boogie”…. I love Freddy Robinson’s guitar!!
