Shortly before he appeared on the landmark "Advancement" LP in 1969, vibraphone virtuoso Lynn Blessing released this, a superb fusion of jazz and laid-back psychedelia, his only solo album. A player best known for his LA session work in the 60s and who's stepping out here in a slightly psychedelic approach to jazz!
The style is warmly chromatic vibes, but touched with elements that definitely show some of the changes in the late 60s scene, bits of rock, jazz and country filtered into the album instrumental groove with steel guitar from Sneaky Pete Kleinow(Flying Burrito Brothers, John Lennon, Frank Zappa) and Wolfgang Melz (the Association, Gabor Szabo) .Produced by legendary jazz flautist Paul Horn.
