Give Peace A Chance - Jazz Crusaders (The)

Give Peace A Chance
Wayne Henderson, along with childhood friends Wilton Felder, Joe Sample, and Nesbert "Stix"¨ Hooper, formed the nucleus of the Jazz Crusaders in 1961. By fusing elements of jazz, funk, soul, R&B, rock, Latin, and gospel, an iridescent sound emerged with such impact that a musical revolution was unearthed. The group signed to Pacific Jazz Records and recorded sixteen albums for them. Their ability to breathe new life into many different types of compositions gained them an immediate fanbase that grew internationally throughout the 1960’s.
At the close of the decade, they recorded a one off album for Liberty Records. GIVE PEACE A CHANCE saw the quartet move in a more soulful direction than on early albums. Amongst their own compositions was an amazing Funky workout of Roy Hawkins’ "The Thrill Is Gone” as well as the Lennon/McCartney tunes "Give Peace A Chance” and "Black Bird”.
GIVE PEACE A CHANCE was not one of the group’s biggest sellers in 1970 due to a lack of promotion from Liberty Records but the album has gained in stature over the decades and is seen very much as the first step towards the band’s seventies fusion classics like Southern Comfort and the international hit Street Life.
BBR is very proud to announce the international CD debut of GIVE PEACE A CHANCE complete with brand new liner notes and remastered sound. It is a must for all Jazz Fusion, Soul and Funk fans out there.
