Between jazz and soul, keyboardist Charles Earland was one of the most succesfull artists on labels like Prestige to weave his own path - with the seriousness of jazz and the soulfulness of soul. THis is his best (and one of his rarest) albums. Who else could cover Eddie Kendricks, Lee Morgan and give Coltrane a run for his money with his version of Favourite Things.
