An arranger with A-List credits a mile long, legendary composer & producer David Axelrod had carte blanche to do what he wanted on his own solo releases. His solo album Heavy Axe is a jazz-rock opus that encapsulated the preeminent sound of the of the mid 70s. With a little help from legendary players like Johnny ÒGuitarÓ Watson, Cannonball Adderley and George Duke, Heavy Axe is a referendum on the jazz-rock sound of the era, crisscrossing between lush funk sounds and full, round low end and majestic orchestral flourishes Ð all which have made AxelrodÕs sonic realm a goldmine for sample-hungry hip-hop beatmakers from the Ô90s until today. First wide reissue in 20 years. This 180-gram reissue of Purdie Good! was cut from the original analog tapes by Kevin Gray and pressed at RTI, and comes packaged in a tip-on jacket.
