Groovin' You

One of the best solo records from Harvey Mason -- best known as the drummer on some really monster 70s funky fusion sessions (such as Johnny Hammond's Gears album) -- but a surprisingly well-rounded R&B artist overall! As with Norman Connors, another fusion drummer gone soul star, Harvey's working here in a style that mixes jazz influences with modern soul -- grooving things for a more mainstream audience, but still keeping things real underneath. The record's filled with guest appearances by fusion greats -- like Bob James, David Spinozza, Richard Tee, Lee Ritenour, and others -- and Jim Gilstrap sings vocals on a cut or two.
