"Originally released on the influential label Black Jazz in 1971, guitarist Calvin Keys' debut is a stone classic waiting to be re-discovered. The funky, deep grooves and Calvin's singular guitar stylings, coupled with the heady collaborative feel that inhabits so many early '70s jazz recordings, are all on beautiful display. Calvin's musical roots originate in his hometown of Omaha, NE, playing with legends like Eddie 'Cleanhead' Vinson. Shortly after the release of his debut LP Shawn-Neeq, Calvin was hired to tour and record with Ray Charles. By the mid-70s, Calvin was working steadily with legendary pianist Ahmad Jamal on the road and in the studio. Since settling in the Bay Area in the mid-70s, Calvin has recorded numerous solo albums and played with many greats, including Taj Mahal, Bobby Hutcherson, Big John Patton and Dr. Lonnie Smith." On 180 gram vinyl.
