Sweet Heritage (LP)
Label: Mad About Records
Rare private press Jazz-Funk with breaks and some spiritual influences reminiscent of Brother Ahh at times. The group cover Stevie Wonder’s You Are the Sunshine of My Life and play originals that include Sweet Heritage, Free Will, One of a Kind (Love Affair), Serene Beauty, and In the Fall of the Year. This is a beautiful sounding record with elements of straight Jazz, Soul-Jazz, and some funky stuff including some Free and Afro-centric influences.
The main man is Jaman himself (J.E. Manuel) on keyboards, who in the past had worked with R&B bands and many people in the Jazz world (Turrentines, Earl Bostic, Sonny Stitt, Joe Farrell, Lenny Welch, and Ethel Ennis).
