By the time he recorded Right On Brother in 1970, soul-jazz guitarist "Boogaloo" Joe Jones was at the peak of his powers. The album's enduring appeal is based, in part at least, in its thrillingly heavy fusion of elements of jazz, funk, soul, blues and psychedelic rock. Jones is naturally in fine form throughout, laying down a mixture of jazzy licks, wild solos and crunchy riffs, but is given more than ample support from a backing ensemble including organist Charles Earland (a star in his own right), saxophonist Rusty Bryant and, perhaps most impressively of all, legendary drummer Bernard Purdie. With such talent on display, it's unsurprising that Right on Brother is still held in such high esteem.
