3rd Ward Vibration Society : 1976

3rd Ward Vibration Society
Texas State University Jazz Ensemble featuring Arnett Cobb : 1976.
SUM Records.

More titanic jazz from Texas.

The title track from this obscure big band slammer on the little known SUM label, which includes a healthy dose of players from The Lightmen (no Buubha Thomas) plus one. The Texas State always brought the powerhouse sound, but this one goes far beyond anything else. Think Locke Saints, no don't think Locke Saints .. This blows them away. Killer groove music library dropped a couple of tracks way back, but not this bomb.

Check it, and tell me i'm wrong.
