The Goodness Of Person!!

You've already listened to Houston's 'Blue Odyssey'...or maybe you didn't. In any case, 'Goodness!' was dropped a year after in 1969, still on Prestige. The recorder carries the lofty name of Rudy Van Gelder, and includes Sonny Phillips on organ. Doesn't seem like a terrible start, eh? Prestige usually kept the cover art more monochromatic and minimalist than other jazz labels, and yet some still pull off the cool. To me, below is an example. This album certainly gets the soul jazz stamp of approval. Oh goodness, you gotta taste this!

Wanna listen?...
