HUBERT LAWS : How Long Will It Be? (1970)
To change it up a bit, here's a groovy track from jazz flautist Hubert Laws. He is primarily known for taking classical pieces and putting them into a jazz context (with flute being the lead instrument), but he can create some funky music as well. This song is written by the man himself, and features a great lineup of musicians (see below). An early release on the great CTI label.
Song : "How Long Will It Be?" From the LP "CRYING SONG" (CTI) 1970 -recorded Sep. 24, 1969
LINEUP : Hubert Laws - flute Bob James - electric piano, organ George Benson - guitar Ron Carter - bass Grady Tate - drums
