Jerry Garcia & Howard Wales - Hooteroll?+2 CD


Keyboardist Howard Wales and guitarist Jerry Garcia teamed up often in the early 1970's, holding jam sessions at nearby clubs and recording this largely ignored studio album. The music on Hooteroll? is a natural extension of the sublime jazz-fusion that had begun to change jazz music. This is psychedelic, interstellar rock with healthy doses of funk, jazz, and 70's style soul. Features John Kahn on bass, Bill Vitt on drums, and Martin Fierro on sax/flute. A classic California lineup and an album that you won't believe you missed!

* A classic, this record is Jerry Garcia's first non-Grateful Dead work!
* Special digipak reissue never available before in America features stunning art by Mati Klarwein.
* Hooteroll? shows early-era Dead influence, yet incorporates the years of experience accrued by Garcia. Some very unique music is created in this session, and lets the listener see how Garcia could branch out to do something different--more experimental, more off-the-cuff, and more spontaneous.
* Using a seven-piece band and implementing organs, sax, trumpet, guitars, bass, and drums, kaleidoscopic musical waves and journeys combine to make a very diverse and jam-filled record.
Includes two previously unreleased bonus tracks, SHEONCE LIVED HERE AND SWEET COCAINE, recorded live in 1972, and A TRIPTO WHAT NEXT, from the original LP, on CD for the first time!
