Watch Out!!

I love Rene's cool cat. I mean, the guys dad was f***ing Jackie Mclean! Very thoughtful hard-bop soul jazz style. He dropped this in '75 then had nothing put out (as a leader) until 1992. I found a list of just some of the musicians he performed with:

Jackie McLean, the Dizzy Gillespie Big Band, Lionel Hampton - All Stars, Tito Puente Orchestra, Horace Silver, Woody Shaw, Dr. Bill Taylor, Baba Olatunji, Hugh Masekela, Miriam Makeba, Abbey Lincoln, Dexter Gordon, James Moody, Yusef Lateef, Jaco Pastorius, Jerry Gonzales' Forte Apache Band, Hamza El Din, as well as in collaboration with premier poet-activist Amiri Baraka (Leroi Jones).

You better watch out!
