A free Melvin Gibbs download

Back in January, I gave you a sneak taste of the new CD from bassist and bandleader Melvin Gibbs. The group is Melvin Gibbs’ Elevated Entity. The album is “Ancients Speak.”

Now let me hit you with a FREE MP3. Click here to hear “Canto Por Odudua” on my Vox blog. This track showcases killer guitarist Pete Cosey plus Cuban-born Pedrito Martinez on vocals. To download it, click the title below.

Goddamn Melvin!!! Pete Cosey, too? True story but a little sad. Saw Pete Cosey on one of those judge shows. I'm thinking "What the hell? He played with Miles Davis."

^ That is funny. Like seeing one of the Brides of Funkenstein as a contestant on "The Price Is Right." (I think one of 'em actually was.)
