Impressive live 1969 album by trumpeter Marvin Peterson!

Jacket includes Japanese OBI strip

An impressive live album by Marvin Peterson who was one of the finest trumpeters in the '60s-'70s is making its return on vinyl format. These tracks were performed by the band led by Hannibal Marvin Peterson, though he had yet to add "Hannibal" to his name at the time of recording. Here, he performed with eight musicians in his hometown of Texas, and their performance crossed the boundaries of jazz, soul and funk with skilled musicians. These included organist Eugene Carrier who also participated in the BB King Band and drummer Emry Thomas who would later participate in the band led by Johnny "Guitar" Watson.

With a glance at the cover art, you can get a sense of the powerful and passionate live recording that brought joy to its many fans. The opening "Groove for Otis" with a jazz-funk whose edgy beat excites rare-groove fans. "Our Groove" is also a fine track that has a slick bassline and Eugene's organ fusing in harmony. P-VINE is proud to be repressing this record with its intimate feeling akin to being there in the crowd as the mighty Peterson walks up to take center stage.
