Larry Douglas Alltet - Dedications (Tidal Waves Music)


That the 1985 original of  Larry Douglas Alltet‘s ‘Dedications’ was beloved by Giles Peterson and Madlib should tell you something about the need for this 2021 repress. One of San Francisco’s best trumpet players, Douglas performed alongside the likes of Freddie Hubbard, Chuck Berry, Albert Collins, Sun Ra and Shuggie Ottis. And his debut solo album, released via private press, was inspired by his son and the boy’s two aunts. Rich with horns and energetic rhythms, all soaked in jazz-funk and Latin influences, it’s a fitting tribute whose rarity has now been rectified.
