Bubbha Thomas - Life & Times... (LP Reissue)


- Rare Houston Funk-Soul-Boogie - Originally released in 1985 - First ever vinyl reissue - Featuring an all-star line-up - 180g Black Vinyl Edition - Limited to 500 copies, comes with obi strip // Houston's reputation for developing first-class jazz acts is well-established, as a stream of young players has been distinguishing themselves for decades_among those musicians and mentors who stood tallest, Bubbha Thomas was no exception (and a major key-player) in this long tradition of talent. In the early 1960s he found work as a session drummer for the Duke and Peacock labels. Thomas drummed on recordings by O.V. Wright, Buddy Ace and the Mighty Clouds of Joy. He was playing his own stuff and backing luminaries such as R&B singer Chuck Jackson and homegrown legends like Lightnin' Hopkins. Bubbha Thomas also teamed up with some of his equally legendary peers (like guitarist Melvin Sparks & organist Leon Spencer) and eventually established his own group, the Jazz Merchants. Bubbha learned every style that was thrown at him and he played straight-ahead jazz with renowned artists before the political and social upheaval of the late 1960s led him to a path first charted by Coltrane and Sun Ra_the result of these newfound influences was the incredible spiritual jazz ensemble `The Lightmen', who released four incredible recordings in the 1970s. Their first album `Free As You wanna be' predates the deep-set, maverick jazz issued by the likes of Tribe and Strata East and is a harbinger of some of the best in the 1970s jazz underground. Next to his work with `'The Lightmen'', Bubbha also released the fantastic (solo) album `Life & Times' in 1985. `Life & Times' (which we are proudly presenting you today) is particularly interesting to boogie-enthusiasts because of its high doses of funky twerks, solid grooves, crazy synth work, soulful vocals and excellent drum-beats courtesy of Mr. Thomas himself. You'll quickly find yourself shaking hips the moment the needle hits the first t
