Deep. Latin. Afro. Cuban. A mythical album on many jazz collectors want-lists, Mystic Beauty, by Reggie Andrews and The Fellowship is now reissued by Lisbon-based label Mad About Records. A primarily acoustic jazz piece, its influences range from the cerebral to the soulful, defying any one-dimensional tag like spiritual jazz, or soul-jazz or jazz-funk. Mystic Beauty runs on its own lane.
Hailing from L.A. and led by pianist Reggie Andrews, this is a beautiful session all around. Special and profound. In recent decades, Reggie Andrews has taught, mentored, and produced many talented musicians from all genres. From jazz, to soul, to hip hop. But this… this is the realest 60’s jazz holy grail LP outta California. A once in a lifetime opportunity - a very limited vinyl edition is available under $3000. Courtesy of Mad About Records.
