Description

Revolutionary, spiritual jazz from Houston, reissued for the first time – the first in a series of four expanded reissues of drummer and bandleader Bubbha Thomas' lauded catalog. Thomas had toured America with R&B revues, served as a session musician for Peacock and Back Beat Records, and played straight ahead jazz with legends before the political and social upheaval of the late-60s led him to a path first charted by Coltrane. Free As You Wanna Be predates the deep-set, maverick jazz issued by the likes of Tribe and Strata East and is a harbinger of best of the '70s jazz underground, a collective voice of resistance to the musical and cultural status quo. This is the first time that Free As You Wanna Be has seen reissued, and it's presented in both the issued stereo and previously unissued mono mixes as a double LP. Bubbha and his band's story is told in great detail by Houston music and cultural historian Lance Scott Walker (Houston Rap / Houston Rap Tapes) and Now-Again's Eothen Alapatt, in a booklet that contains dozens of unpublished photographs.
