Genre:Organic Grooves
Amazing and unique private soul/jazz-funk fusion LP, “New York To L.A.: Coasting” is the first release (1980) on Andrew Scott Potter and David Eric Tillman’s PO/ET label. Sublime from the beginning to the end, it has become, just like their second and final release “…Space…Rapture…”, a sought-after collector’s item.
Andrew and Eric both come from Chicago. They met in the early 70's, shortly after Eric's discharge from the U.S. Air Force. They played together on the local jazz scene for several years (among others, with Maulawi). During that period, Andrew also toured with Minnie Riperton and Eric toured with The Dells, Linda Clifford and others. In the late 70's Eric left Chicago for Los Angeles, when he began touring with The Temptations. Since moving to California Eric has played and/or recorded with a variety of artists, including, Willie Bobo, Justo Almario, Alex Acuna, Norman Connors, Billy Paul, GAP Band, Linda Hopkins, Billy Higgins, O.C. Smith, and many others. Also, in the late 70's Andrew Potter moved to New York, hitting the local jazz scene, which in New York means
a lot of world class players. That’s where he met and played with such artists as Carmen Lundy, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Ryo Kawasaki, Walter Bishop Jr., Marcus Miller, Alex Foster, and others too numerous to mention. Among other gems, this album contains the beautiful “Good Morning Kiss” written and performed by vocalist Carmen Lundy, one of today's most talented and respected jazz singers. Carmen performed and recorded with musicians such as Kenny Barron, Ray Barretto, Courtney Pine, Roy Hargrove, Ron Carter, and Robert Glasper.
In Harlem NYC in the late 1970s she was part of a group of emerging young musicians formed by Walter Bishop Jr. with Marcus Miller on bass, Mayra Casales on congas, Ricky Ford on sax, and Kenny Washington on drums who was later replaced by Andrew Potter. Potter fell in love with Carmen’s work and decided to include “Good Morning Kiss” on this album. The rest of the band is no less a dream team: Walter Bishop Jr. played and recorded with Art Blakey, Charlie Parker, Oscar Pettiford, Kai Winding, Miles Davis, Jackie McLean, Curtis Fuller, Terry Gibbs, Clark Terry, Blue Mitchell, and Supersax. Japanese jazz guitarist Ryo Kawasaki worked with Cedar Walton, Gil Evans, Elvin Jones, Chico Hamilton, Gato Barbieri and with James Mason in the legendary fusion band Tarika Blue. Bass
player, producer, arranger, composer & vocalist Brad Bobo who wrote & arranged for the Notations, Willie Williams, the Procedures and The Lost Family, also recorded with Eddie Harris, Wilton Felder, The Crusaders and Natalie Cole. Adam Rudolph went on to play and record with Yusef Lateef & Pharoah Sanders.

Potter & Tillman - …Space…Rapture
Potter & Tillman
LP | 1982 | EU | Reissue (High Jazz)
25,99 €*
Release:1982 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves
Reissue from this soul/jazz-funk fusion album originally released in 1982 on Poet Records. 500 copy LTD edition!
This sought-after album is an amazing and unique creative project produced and composed by David Eric Tillman including outstanding performances by some of the highest-level musicians whose common thread was their ability to kill up tempo and modal bop and excel in this jazz-funk/fusion style thanks to their up bop think quick knowledge.

This gem contains nothing but brilliant tracks like “…Space…Rapture”, “Love Is How”, “New Anniversary Waltz”, “It Must Be E.S.P.” and “(Sing) A Simple Song Of Praise”. Incredible golden lead and backing vocals, a super tight rhythm section, forward thinking arrangements, and an amazing combination of piano, Rhodes and various remarkable synthesizers makes this recording timelessly fresh. The beautiful “Time Is Love”, a tune of positive outlook written during her jazz composition studies, is performed by the one and only Carmen. Killer from the beginning to the end, one of our all-time favorite soul/jazz-funk LPs.
