Esther Phillips From A Whisper To A Scream on 180g Import LP from Pure Pleasure

Justifiably hailed as her ‘career’ album, From A Whisper To A Scream re-established the late Esther Phillips as a prominent soul and jazz artist in 1972, starting her most fruitful period as an international chartmaker through her five-year association with jazz industry veteran Creed Taylor’s Kudu Records.

The sessions for From A Whisper To A Scream in December 1971 found her surrounded by stellar players such as Gordon Edwards (bass), Bernard Purdie (drums), Airto Moreira (percussion), Cornell Dupree and Eric Gale (guitar), Richard Tee (keyboards) and labelmate Hank Crawford (on alto saxophone on selected tracks). 

Handpicking the material herself, Esther included some R&B hits of the time – The Originals’ "Baby I’m For Real," Eddie Floyd’s "Til My Back Ain’t Got No Bone" – alongside two songs penned by Allen Toussaint, including the stirring title track. The album’s most notable cut was her true-to-life version of Gil Scott-Heron’s "Home Is Where The Hatred Is," which she was initially reluctant to record given its parallels to her own battles with drug dependency.

Esther Phillips (vocals) 
Hank Crawford (alto saxophone)
David Liebman (baritone saxophone, flute)
