John Lee & Gerry Brown - Infinite Jones
Bassist John Lee and drummer Gerry Brown teamed up on a number of electric leaning jazz releases during the mid to late seventies. It might be safe to say that their best work came in 1974 when they released their debut record Infinite Jones off flutist Chris Hinze's Keystone Records. This album, which features Hinze and Gary Bartz (saxophone), has an overall groove oriented jazz-fusion feel that includes gems like "Bamboo Madness", "Jua", "Rise On", and the title track "Infinite Jones". The album is much more funkier than most pronounced "jazz fusion" recordings, sounding at times more similar to something Bartz would of released with his NTU Troop. John Lee and Gerry Brown had a good run of decent recordings during the seventies, however Infinite Jones is absolutely the defining moment for the duo during this period. Enjoy!
