Wayne Henderson, along with childhood friends Wilton
Felder, Joe Sample, and Nesbert "Stix"¨ Hooper, formed the
nucleus of the Jazz Crusaders in 1961. By fusing elements
of jazz, funk, soul, R&B, rock, Latin, and gospel, an
iridescent sound emerged with such impact that a musical
revolution was unearthed. The group signed to Pacific Jazz
Records and recorded sixteen albums for them. Their ability
to breathe new life into many different types of
compositions gained them an immediate fanbase that grew
internationally throughout the 1960’s.
At the close of the decade, they recorded a one off album
for Liberty Records. GIVE PEACE A CHANCE saw the quartet
move in a more soulful direction than on early albums.
Amongst their own compositions was an amazing Funky
workout of Roy Hawkins’ “The Thrill Is Gone” as well as the
Lennon/McCartney tunes “Give Peace A Chance” and “Black
GIVE PEACE A CHANCE was not one of the group’s biggest
sellers in 1970 due to a lack of promotion from Liberty
Records but the album has gained in stature over the
decades and is seen very much as the first step towards the
band’s seventies fusion classics like Southern Comfort and
the international hit Street Life.
BBR is very proud to announce the international CD debut
of GIVE PEACE A CHANCE complete with brand new liner
notes and remastered sound. It is a must for all Jazz Fusion,
Soul and Funk fans out there.
