Renaissance Records

Scarce soulful jazz lp recorded live in 1976 in California and released on the obscure Renaissance Records label. Al Williams plays drums, also featuring Leroy Vinegar on bass, Dwight Dickerson on piano, Charles Owens on sax, Nolan Smith on trumpet, and Victor Cardenas on percussions.
"Sandance" is a monster jazz funk track followed by the deep jazz track "Erik's tune" and the great "desert song". The whole lp is excellent, there is also an insane version of the Coltrane song, "Impressions".
The record has some light marks and occasional light clicks. The cover shows a writing on the front and a light wear on corners and edges, no seam splits.
