**180 gram Deluxe Heavy Cardboard Sleeve with OBI. Much needed repress for this 60's jazz holy grail finally reissued on vinyl!** Mad About Records present a reissue of Reggie Andrews and The Fellowship's Mystic Beauty, originally released in 1969. A mythical album on many jazz collector's want-lists, this LP was released in California on the extremely limited and sought-after private press label HME. It has deep Latin, Afro / Cuban influences, and consists primarily of acoustic jazz pieces. Influences also range from the cerebral to the soulful, but it defies any one-dimensional tag like "spiritual jazz" or "soul-jazz" or "jazz-funk." Heralding from L.A. and led by pianist Reggie Andrews, it doesn't sound particularly "west coast". It's a beautiful session all around, really something special and profound. In recent years, Reggie Andrews has taught, mentored, and produced many talented musicians including Patrice Rushen, Terrace Martin, Ndugu Chancler and the Dazz Band who wrote Let It Whip, along with his close friend Leon Ndugu Chancler. He is the founder of the jazz-fusion group Karma and has worked with Earth, Wind & Fire, produced Moacir Santos for Blue Note Records, served as an "electronics consultant" for Donald Byrd, and took to mentoring The Pharcyde and J Dilla. 180 gram vinyl comes in heavy cardboard sleeve with obi.
