Afro-Cuban Jazz of the highest orderl! And even better, these two songs have remained UNRELEASED for the past 51 years! Vibraphonist, flutist, and band leader Ulysses Crockett was a big name on the Bay Area latin-jazz scene of the 1960s. He started out with his own group Afro Blue Persuasion which included a very young Paul Jackson on bass who later became famous as a member of Herbie Hankock's fusion-jazz masters The Headhunters.
"Philadelphia Mambo" and "Girl From Ipanema" were both recorded live in 1967 but remained unreleased until now. Both songs are taken from the soon to be released 33rpm record titled "Live at Haight Levels" which includes more unreleased material as well as the full length version of both of these two edited tunes. This 7" runs at 33rpm to provide the best sound quality possible. Limited to 250 hand-numbered copies.
