Spirits Known And Unknown (180Gm Analogue)
Format: LP, Vinyl
Leon Thomas is unique amongst Jazz vocalists. ‘Spirits Known And Unknown’ was his solo debut recording in 1969. It features so many classic tracks. His take on Horace Silver’s ‘Song For My Father’ is beautiful beyond words. ‘The Creator Has A Masterplan’, famously recorded by Pharoah Sanders with Thomas is given briefer yet equally wonderful take. ‘Echoes’ is a real classic with superb and inspirational lyrics. The jazzy ‘Damn Nam’ hits a finger popping groove, and on the stunning ‘Let The Rain Fall On Me’, Leon displays a more mellow and delicate side to his vocals. Fantastic album.
