"Mike Mainieri - Journey Thru An Electric Tube -1968 US"
A groovy psychedelic jazz album by vibes-virtuozo Mike Mainieri recorded back in the late 60s but with a sound that still sounds fresh today.
His 1968 session "Journey Through an Electric Tube" (no doubt a reference to the vibes themselves) features mellow grooves (like ‘The Bush’) and sidemen like Jeremy Steig (flute) and Chuck Rainey(electric bass), Sam Brown and Joe Beck(guitar), Donald MacDonald (drums), Hal Gaylor (double bass), Warren Bernhardt (piano, organ) and Sally Waring (vocals ). The album features female vocals on two tracks, bossa nova on one, some great fuzztone guitar and "Allow Your Mind to Wander" is a 14-minute psych-jam.All the players are in top form and the outcome is really trippy!!!
