REISSUE ALERT! Stanton Davis' Ghetto Mysticism "Brighter Days"

AT LAST!! This sublime piece of jazz funk heaven has FINALLY been reissued for the 1st time. Trumpet player Stanton Davis formed his band Ghetto Mysticism & in 1977 they recorded this KILLER album for the obcure jazz label Obscure. Black jazz at it's finest, similar to some of the best work of artist like The Mizell Brothers, James Mason, Lonnie Liston Smith & that of labels like Tribe & Black Jazz at that moment, sometimes spiritual & always funky.  Because of the acid jazz movement & the resurgence of jazz funk thru sampling, this obscure work became HIGHLY sought after & the original LP goes for MAJOR BUCKS on ebay. Songs from this album have been featured on compilations of Gilles Peterson & the Soul Jazz label. One of the tunes was the inspiration for one of Madlib's projects.

The good people at Culture Of Soul is releasing this for the 1st time on cd. The 1st 100 people to preorder it will be entered into a contest to win an autographed copy of the original lp, but you don't need that as an incentive, this album is KILLER!!! Order it here.
