Title: Eye of the Beholder/Can You Feel It?
Artist: Barretto, Ray
Label: Expansion Records
UPC: 5019421603627
Genre: Soul/R & B

Digitally remastered two-fer containing a pair of albums from the Jazz percussionist. Raymond Barretto came from New York and was a drummer, percussionist, bandleader, composer and producer. He was a member of Tito Puente's orchestra from 1957 to 1960. He recorded for a number of labels including United Artists and Fania Records and was with Atlantic for the two albums we present here for the first time on CD, EYE OF THE BEHOLDER and CAN YOU FEEL IT. Both of these albums come from the heyday of Jazz fusion in the late 70s (1977 and 1978 respectively), the first a production collaboration with the Crusaders. With Joe Sample penning 'Here We Go Away', the music is just one step away from what the Crusaders were making themselves at the time, short of Stix Hooper on drums but in the sturdy hands of Frank Zappa's Terry Bozzio doing the beats. Elsewhere on the album the UK's Steve Ferrone, a former member of Average White Band, features prominently on drums with Ray focusing on congas and percussion, as he does across these two sets with Wilton Fielder's 'Numero Uno' (the album's US 45) highly regarded as a masterpiece of Jazz Fusion.
