Highly critically acclaimed 1996 Funky Soul Jazz classic Zim Zam Zoom is NOW available again! It was previously [and still is] out of print, but limited quantities are now available.
Michael Erlewine (All Music Guide)
"One of the sweetest sets ever cut by organist Ron Levy -- and a record that's done very much in the mode of the older Prestige soul jazz and jazz funk that first inspired his work! Of course, that relation to Prestige is no surprise -- given that Ron's working here with Melvin Sparks on guitar and Idris Muhammad on drums -- who both help give the record a feel that's a lot more classic than you might expect for the date. But the real star of the set is Levy, whose clean, lean lines on the Hammond B-3 recall the early genius of Charles Earland at its best! Titles include "Zim Zam Zoom", "Lost Tribes", "Sons Of Abraham", "Last Go Round", "Silver Cannonball", and "Lonely Avenue".
1/2 stars by Downbeat.
Recorded & engineered at Van Gelder Studio by Rudy Van Gelder & co-produced by the legendary Bob Porter [of Prestige & Blue Note fame]
