Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing. In the liner notes to this grooving 1969 album (featuring a big band led by drummer Louis Bellson and arranged by Impulse! Star Oliver Nelson), the Godfather of Soul explains that he is a "jazz man at heart." Brown's soul consigliere, saxophonist Maceo Parker, helps make this a swinging, spirited and satisfying set of standards and James Brown hits. Verve By Request Series features transfers from the analog tapes.
