David Liebman / Light N' Up Please

As Herbie’s hit Headhunters (1973) spawned many a credible clone, jazz giant David Liebman entered the funk foray with the delightful Light N’ Up Please (1976).

Bass maestros Tony Saunders and Jeff Berlin cranked the flange and what sounds to my ears to be the signature Fender P grit on this overlooked fusion gem which also featured Al Foster, Leon Thomas, and Pee Wee Ellis.
