Tom Scott & The L.A. Express – Sneakin’ In The Back / 1974

When you first heard this band live, it was like hearing a more rocking version of the Crusaders (with Joe Sample and Larry Carlton on board, bringing the notable sonic similarity). This was a great band to hear live, it’s a shame they didn’t stay together long enough to record a live album at the Baked Potato in North Hollywood where this band used to woodshed. This great record will give you a taste of how “fusion” can be when it’s done with true taste and jazz chops. No overbearing typewriter music or ridiculous overtures, just foot-tapping fun. And Scott’s beautiful “Spindrift” is worthwhile all by itself, a beautiful melodic mood enhanced by the sound of Carlton’s silky guitar and drummer John Guerin’s wonderful rhythmic spirit.
