Echoes Of An Era

24 February 2003

In 1982, soul diva Chaka Khan recorded this excellent jazz album for the Elektra label.Featuring Joe Henderson on tenor sax, Freddie Hubbard on trumpet and flugelhorn, Chick Corea on piano, Stanley Clarke on upright bass, and Lenny White on drums, this was a creative triumph.With Lenny White producing and Chick Corea's arrangements, Chaka Khan swings through Thelonious Monk's "I Mean You" and Duke Ellington's "Take the A Train", "Spring Can Really Hang You Up the Most," "All of Me," "I Love You Porgy", and more.
