Harvey Mason ‎– Earthmover. Label: Arista ‎– AL 4096. Format: Vinyl, LP, Album.

Harvey Mason ‎– Earthmover. Genre: Jazz, Funk, Soul. This is the sort of jazz-funk album that was routinely overlooked back in the day because we were so deluged with great stuff, we didn't know what to do with all of it! This is an all-star workout that includes guest shots from luminaries such as Greg Phillinganes, Ray Parker, Lee Ritenour, Merry Clayton, and Motown's legendary James Jamerson, plus a pop-in from future star Patrice Rushen.

Primarily an instrumental album (with the exception of the funky 'Sho Nuff Groove,' co-written with Louis Johnson of the Brothers Johnson and featuring Harvey on lead vocals), Earthmover's star players include Patrice Rushen, Greg Phillinganes, Ray Parker J. the Seawind Horns, Anthony Jackson and Merry Clayton on background vocals. The live track, 'When I'm with You' features famed Motown bass player James Jamerson while renowned keyboardist Jan Hammer plays on and co-wrote the fusion standout 'No Lands Man'.

Artist: Harvey Mason. Album: Earthmover, 2012. Created with mp32tube.
