Alphonso Johnson was one of the most known bassists from the mid ’70’s his contribution to the band he plays 3 years Weather Report is no doubt an important one. In WR period when still was a member he release 3 albums 2 in 1976 and one in 1977. His second solo effort from 1976 named Yesterday’s dream is a collection of jazz fusion with funky moments.
This is one of these Fusion superproductions fromthe 70s, where a famous sessions musician invites his former partners to jam. Produced by Skip Drinkwater. From the first track we have Philip Bailey and Dianne Reeves on vocals,Grover Washington, Jr., Patrice Rushen, Lee Ritenour, Sheila E., Ian Underwood (his missus plays percussions on another track). Jon Lucien’s smooth voice graces “Show Us the Way”… Johnson being a bassist, the funk is on. Nice.
