In the late 1960s and early '70s, many diehard jazz fans turned their noses up at soul-jazz experiments, as formerly straight-ahead jazz musicians began fusing bop with funk and R&B. In hindsight, however, it is clear that these musicians were ahead of the curve with their adventurous, accessible fusions. As on their hugely popular first collaboration, SWISS MOVEMENT, tenor man Eddie Harris and keyboardist/vocalist Les McCann generate some truly irresistible grooves on SECOND MOVEMENT, blurring the line between jazz, R&B, funk, and pop.
It's hard to argue with the simmering instrumental "Shorty Rides Again," for example. Harris's percolating sax riffs keep the tune soaring over a punchy guitar/bass/drums rhythm that would make the JB's proud. McCann's takes a turn on vocals with the lush, ballad-like "Universal Prisoner" and the head-nodding "Carry On Brother," both of which deal with pressing social issues of racial and economic inequality. The record's final two tracks, "Set Us Free" and "Samia," mine smooth, fusion-flavored pulses, with notable playing by Harris on each. Overlooked soul-jazz outings such as this are the subject of album-collecting dreams.
