Recorded at Electric Lady Studios in New York, ‘Mystic Voyage’ has been sampled countless times in Hip Hop over the years and was one of the foundations of the burgeoning Jazz-Funk scene which developed in the mid to late 1970’s.
The opening song from the album “Brother Green (The Disco King)” was a huge tune in the Rare Groove clubs of the 1980’s. “Evolution” was a dancefloor filler at clubs such as Dingwalls and “Life is Just a Moment (Part 2)” has been sampled by The Jungle Brothers, Outlaw Posse, Fila Brazilia and more.
