John Lee & Gerry Brown - Mango Sunrise

The formidable duo of bassist John Lee and drummer Gerry Brown recorded and played with fusion-oriented group, The Chris Hinze Combination, Joachim Kuhn and other jazz artists while living in Europe. After recording their debut album, Infinite Jones (Keytone, 1974, later reissued on CD as Bamboo Madness) they returned to America in 1975 and signed with the Blue Note label. Mango Sunrise was their first album for Blue Note. Produced by Skip Drinkwater it features Philip Catherine, Eef Alberts and Wah Wah Watson on guitars, Rob Franken, Eric Tagg, Mike Mandel and Jasper Van’t Hof on Keyboards and synthesizers. Even thou I have provided a Rip from vinyl generously provided by Smooth of former blog My Jazz World, it seems this album will finally be released on CD as seen on Dusty Groove.
