Musicians from the Summer Program for Youthful Musicians



Brougham.
Lightin' Records written by Reginald Hall, produced by Bubbha Thomas.

Lifted from the Gilles Peterson comp, Digs America 2. Big ticket item, posted for Eric the Viking.

From the liner notes;
This ultra rare slice of psychedelic soul jazz business, was recorded in either 1973 (or 74, Thomas was not exactly sure) and released on 7" single only in almost non-existent quantities on the Lightin' Records label. Since the early 1970's, at the Summer Jazz Workshop, Thomas and a dedicated staff of seasoned musicians offer students from all over the world the opportunity to learn the rudiments of jazz. The workshop has been credited with producing professional educators, and musicians and individuals from over 8000 teenagers including notables like Joe Carmouche, Jason Moran, Brandon Lee, Horace A Young, Frank Lacy and Eric Harland.
