Multi-instrumentalist David Sancious released his second LP in 1976. This is a timeless masterpiece where the jazz power trio concept melts into the realm of fusion and blues. It is amazing considering that Sancious recorded virtuoso basic tracks only to then over-dubb outstanding solos and textures. This is unarguably portrayed on “The Play and Display of the Heart” where he plays both piano and guitar. Personnel consists of David Sancious on piano, guitars, organ, keyboards, percussion, vocals and bells, Gerald Carboy on bass, Ernest Carter on drums and percussion plus Gayle Moran (Chick Corea’s wife) on vocal chords. Produced by David Sancious and Bruce Botnick. Reissued by Wounded Bird Records and now reissued once again on CD in 2014 by Esoteric Recordings/Cherry Red Records.
