Cheif Natoma From Tacoma / You Know Baby
Mary Lou Williams
Availability: In stock
Dramatic, grandiose, epic – the godlike Mary Lou Williams, pianist and arranger extraordinaire, teams up with vocalist Leon Thomas for these cuts from 1967. Chief Natoma – all American Indian yelps and tribal drums -- would be ridiculous in anyone else’s hands but here’s it’s given a majesty beyond its lyrical content. And what a bassline. The flip is just fantastic and was a standout track from the Gilles Peterson Digs America 2 comp from 2007.
