SKF NOTE: Last night I bought several MP3 jazz albums, among them, Joe Farrell’s Moon Germs. In 1972 I first bought the Moon Germs LP — and have been waiting many years for its reissue. This is a quartet date with Farrell playing soprano sax and flute, accompanied by Herbie Hancock on electric piano, Stanley Clarke on bass, and Jack DeJohnette on drums.
Joe Farrell’s album from 1971, Outback, is equally good with Farrell adding tenor saxophone, alto flute, and piccolo to his arsenal. The band on this date is Chick Corea on electric piano, Buster Williams on bass, Airto Moreira on percussion, and Elvin Jones on drums.
Amazon has the complete Moon Germs for sale at $3.87, and the complete Outback for sale at $2.99. I get no kickbacks from these sales. These are just great prices on great albums with excellent playing by two great drummers: Elvin Jones and Jack DeJohnette.
