Chico Hamilton - man from two worlds

Here's an overlooked smoker of a record. All laid back and cool, this thing has Charles Lloyd debuting what would become his signature track.

 The band is sparse and melodic, just the way I like things.

1. Man From Two Worlds
2. Blues Medley
 a-little sister's dance
 b-shade tree
 c-island blue
3. Forest Flower Sunrise/Sunset*
4. Child's Play
5. Blues For O.T.
6. Mallet Dance
7. Love Song To A Baby

Chico Hamilton - drums
Charles Lloyd - tenor sax, flute
Gabor Szabo - guitar
Albert Stinson - bass

produced by Bob Thiele

vinyl rip impulse stereo A-59

*Forest Flower is presented on the lp as two separate tracks but there is no discernible break. Even later cd versions list the song(s) as a single track.
