Swimmer is a progressive rock-fusion quintet based out of Burlington, VT. Their music transcends convention by fusing the band's roots in rock, funk, jazz and electronica to create a unique and powerful sound. Conceived in 2014 at New Hampshire's Plymouth State University, Swimmer has since cultivated an intimate fanbase through captivating composition and distinct live performances. Their high-energy performances feature an emphasis on improvisation and spontaneity. To quote a fan, "Their trancey soundscapes are beautifully contrasted by their knack for progressive twists and turns, as well as undeniably deep grooves."
Digitally remastered and expanded edition of this classic in demand 1977 Jazz Funk album from multi Grammy nominated Patrice Rushen. This album pre-dates her big commercial successes like 'Forget Me Nots' and shows her more as an incredible keyboard player in a similar style to Herbie Hancock's work of the time. On this album, Patrice introduced her vocals on the track 'Let Your Heart Be Free' which crossed over to a Soul audience. On 'Shout It Out', she is joined by some great musicians including James Gadson, Al McKay and Bill Summers, but the real highlight is Patrice's keyboard playing which is outstanding throughout. The album deserves its place amongst the best Jazz Funk albums of all time.
Blow It Out was among Tom Scott's best selling albums of the 1970s. The only thing that I can say about this album is OUTSTANDING! When Tom first put his album out,(77-78) the track "Shadows" put this album in the spot light. "Dream Lady" soon followed. Tom had done other things before "Blow it Out" but they didn't match this one album.
