Review

This album, the sole release from little-known contemporary jazz combo Jesse Sharps Quintet, first appeared on CD back in 2004. Surprisingly, Outernational has decided to reissue it on vinyl for the very first time. It's a good set, with the first three sides being taken up with heavy pressings of original JSQ album tracks. These have some subtle Afro-jazz influences, but for the most part are doff a cap to jazz greats of the 1960s and '70s. There's plenty of dancefloor-friendly material to be found, with the Kyoto Jazz Massive style "Question" and wild "Mike's Tune" standing out. As with the original CD release, the last track is a surprise bonus: an epic, 16-minute spiritual jazz excursion from Quintet member Horace Tapscott's Sun Ra-inspired Pan Afrikan People's Arkestra project.
