Cafe Extra Ordinaire Story !!

In Minneapolis, he ran a jazz venue which went through many tribulations, including lack of funding, drugs, and the police. Bobby was able to grab performances by Freddie Hubbard, Roland Kirk, and Elvin Jones. Even a native young man named Prince strolled in to enjoy the sounds. This albums release was 8 years in the making, in very limited quantities, and had no distribution whatsoever! This is deep Soul Jazz at its finest.

  4. Thank you beaucoup from France.
    For this great one and a bunch of others.
    Fantastic selection (I have many of them, so I give myself this compliment as well) that open my ears to what my eyes couldn't see.
