Ray Bryant ‎– In The Cut (Full Album)

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


“Recorded in 1974, Ray Bryant’s In the Cut is the one recording in his career that stands out from all the others — not necessarily because it is the best thing he ever cut, but because it is unlike anything in his vast oeuvre. … It’s the pink elephant in Bryant’s catalog to be sure, but it’s as fine a ’70s jazz date as you are likely to find. It’s so inside, it’s outside.” – Thom Jurek/AllMusic.
