After years of loving these two albums Vocalion have finally managed to get them released. Even though I seem to know every twist and turn of these wonderful jazz funk tunes they still delight me. I first encountered Water Torture on a Verve jazz funk compliation and often wondered if the original album could be as good. It is..and then some. The standout track on Slow Traffic for me is You Know The Deal, an amazing slow burner with some incredible prowling bass playing from the genius that is Ralphe Armstrong. The personnel on these albums reads like a go-to list for funky 1970s session players, I can just imagine the looks these guys gave each other across the studio as they belted out these tunes!
If you liked "Anthology" by Eddie Henderson then get this.....don't sleep!
