Ohio Penitentiary 511 Jazz Ensemble – “Hard Luck Soul” – [Jazzman]


Large ensemble hardbop recordings made at the Ohio Penitentiary… A conflicting story??exists here: the Ohio State University Band allegedly visited the penitentiary and met with Logan Rollins (nephew of Sonny) and Reynard Birtha, after which they immediately invited the two to make a record, which would make sense listening to the music. But… looking at the back, and seeing the 12 solemn dudes there all wearing the same clothes, and, on top of that, having instruments tied to their names, I’m thinking it may just be a bunch of convicts jamming their hearts out… at least that’s more interesting, anyway.

Straightahead bluesy bop music, I can already tell Psych City will be a KFJC favorite, ??but I’m hitting Mantra Dance on the blues show… enjoy!
