Funky Skull (Verve By Request) Limited Edition LP

Melvin Jackson

On his sole album as a leader, bassist Melvin Jackson - a veteran of the Eddie Harris band (this album includes two Harris originals) - plays with a bow, plucks and plugs his upright bass into a Maestro G-2 filter box, a Boomerang, an Echoplex, and an Ampeg amp. The result is soulful, psychedelic, and of course, funky – at once one of the grooviest and most avant-garde albums you’ll ever hear. The Verve By Request Series features 180-gram vinyl, pressed at Third Man in Detroit.
